Snarky Candiru2

Halloween 2016

We begin the Mike has green skin arc with the kids reminding Elly that they like to eat the stuff John likes before he gobbles it all.

(Strip Number 4884, Original Publication Date, 2 November 1987)

Panel 1: As the kids come in from trick-or-treating, Elly tells them it's about time they did because she was starting to worry.

Panel 2: Mike tells her that she worries about everything.

Panel 3: He explains that they went trick-or-treating and simply took their time walking back.

Panel 4: Lizzie explains why that is when she says that they wanted to eat some of the stuff Daddy likes before he raided their treat bags like a fool.

Summary: This is yet another example of a silly habit the Pattersons have. I should think that present-day Mike and Liz are also raiding their kids' treat bags Because Adults Can't Simply Buy Themselves Candy.
