Snarky Candiru2

Christopher will allow the Pattersons to accompany him sledding IF they do all the work getting them to the top of the hill.

(Strip Number 4755, Original Publication Date, 5 February 1987)

Panel 1: Christopher says that he's going sledding in the park. Mike asks if he and Lizzie can come with.

Panel 2: He says that they can IF they agree to a simple condition.

Panel 3: Said condition is pulling the sled with him on it. He must weigh a ton because Lizzie looks as wiped pushing him as Mike does pulling him.

Summary: I'm not really sure how Annie's permissive parenting is why the Patterson children are gullible saps but I'm sure she'll be blamed for Chris being an opportunistic jerk somehow. After all, Lynn blamed Gordon's being from a lower-class household for Mike being a prime sucker so it's something she'll do again.
