Snarky Candiru2

In today's strip, Lizzie points out that young girls who dress to outrage want people to be outraged. It should be noted that this is the strip with that Lynnsight I mentioned a while back that has Lynn assume that teenaged girls are a whole load of things they ain't.

(Strip Number 7187, Original Publication Date, 16 June 1985)

Panel 1: As the two of them walk down the commerical district, Lizzie tells Elly that she needs to hold her hand.

Panel 2: After all, she wouldn't want her to get lost.

Panel 3: As they continue walking, they encounter three women in ultra-dated punk rock outfits.

Panel 4: While Elly makes an effort not to stare, Lizzie can't help herself.

Panel 5: Elly tells Lizzie that it isn't polite to stare at people.

Panel 6: Lizzie's reply is "But Mom......"

Panel 7: "....isn't that what they WANT us to do?" This being too close to the truth leaves Elly gobsmacked.

Summary: I'm left gobsmacked by the notes that have as their premise "children only experiment with things to enrage and terrify their horrible mothers who have no sense of human."
