Today, we find the Pattersons are still eating that ginormous turkey.

(Strip Number 780, Original Publication Date, 9 January 1985)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we find Michael complaining about the fact that, yes, yet again, they're having turkey as they've been having for the last two weeks.

Panel 2: He reminds her that so far, they've had turkey with stuffing, turkey stew, turkey pie, turkey on buns, turkey salad and so on and so forth. Her response is to go full-on bitch-faced because her so-called creativity has been questioned.

Panel 3: This causes her to rant about how creative she isn't and how varied their diet hasn't actually been.

Panel 4: This leads to his hiding behind John in a way when he tells her that Daddy's been calling her the Leftover Queen.

Summary: What I find really amazing is that when they finally remove John's cast in February, they're still eating the damned thing. This is because Elly doesn't quite understand that a freezer doesn't allow you to store food forever.
