Today's strip is the one I mentioned last week in which Elly is astonished by and terrified for the kindergarten teacher clearly endangered by the presence of TWENTY FIVE!!!!! evil, chaos-loving monster children.

(Strip Number 4517, Original Publication Date, 28 August 1985)

Panel 1: After finding the classroom, Elly watches as Lizzie's teacher Miss Lyon greets her and introduces herself.

Panel 2: Panicky Imbecile Elly™ gazes on the terrifying scene of a large herd of fullfillment-eating, mother-hating monster children and exclaims that there must be twenty-five of the attention-demanding little monsters in there.

Panel 3: Since Miss Lyon is made of sterner stuff than Elly, she says that she can handle a bunch of unruly five year olds no problem.

Panel 4: She then probably files Lizzie's mother under the category "fragile nutjob" when Elly gets all goggle-eyed and yelps "ALONE?!!" in a panicked tone of voice.

Summary: This is another example of Elly not being imagine anyone doing better at dealing with kids than she can because that would mean she actually is the incompetent fool she's described as when other people don't think she can hear them.
