Snarky Candiru2

We get a sort of a lead-in to a reminder that Mike is going to die seeing Elly as a robot whose sole purpose is to race around cooking and picking up after him when he doesn't realize that he's been told to feed himself while Elly is working.

(Strip Number 4880, Original Publication Date, 20 October 1987)

Panel 1: We figure out WHY Mike is standing around like a wooden Jesus in a country graveyard when Elly tells him that she'll get supper going when she finishes what she's working on. Since Aaron is to be berated for expecting the Lynn Lake Lynn in Corbeil, Mike whines that he's hungry now.

Panel 2: Elly tells him that he's big enough a kid to go to the fridge and see what's there.

Panel 3: He looks in the fridge and sees what's there.

Panel 4: Since he doesn't want to live in a world where Elly doesn't drop God-damned everything to cater to his whims, he asks her what happens now.

Summary: I don't see why Elly complains about a sudden change in his behaviour Thursday; he's still the same malingering jerk who whined that noooooobody loved him because they expected him to get off his ass and help out and he's still the same gloomy dumb-ass who thinks that Elly hates him because she has needs too.
