Snarky Candiru2

Sulking Infant John tells Mike that a nice gesture that makes one's wife happy is some sort of horrible ordeal that should not be asked of men.

(Strip Number 1131, Original Publication Date, 3 April 1987)

Panel 1: As she and John make ready to go out, Mike asks where they're going when he should be asking why they're being sat for by some sort of mutant shadow creature. Elly tells him that they're going to a dancing lesson.

Panel 2: As Lizzie's shadow shows off her Space Babe to their silhouette babysitter, Elly explains that Daddy signed them up for ballroom dancing lessons and the first class is tonight.

Panel 3: Since he can't believe that John would do something for Elly that isn't buying her snow tires, Michael asks him why he did that.

Panel 4: Sulking Infant John says he wanted to test the marriage.

Summary: It gets even stupider from here, folks. That's because tomorrow's strip is all about how most of the man-children in town whine and moan about high school bullshit like so much Les Moore. Hmmm. I can't help but wonder what Rod DID to be cast as a big idiot yowling in pain because he wasn't Big Man On Campus.
