Snarky Candiru2

Easter Sunday 2017

Today's Easter strip is all about how you get sick of a certain food item if you overindulge like Michael and Elizabeth do today.

(Strip Number 7256, Original Publication Date, 3 April 1988)

Panel 1: We start with an excited Lizzie waking Mike up because it's Easter morning.

Panel 2: The two of them walk downstairs.

Panel 3: Their eyes light up when they start handing out the candycandycandy.

Panel 4: They messily gobble up said candy as if food is about to be abolished Easter Monday.

Panel 5: They gobble down more candy without thinking about the consequences.

Panel 6: At the Easter Egg hunt, they swallow down the candy eggs as soon as they find them.

Panel 7: We find the two of them sitting on the couch feeling sickbecause they gordged themselves. When the doorbell rings, surprise merges with nausea.

Panel 8: When they answer the door, they find that Phil and Georgia have arrived with more chocolate.

Panel 9: Phil and Georgia are baffled by the distinct lack of enthusiasm Mike and Lizzie have for yet more choclate because they don't have the advantage of reading today's strip.

Panel 10: As she takes his and Georgia's coats, a baffled Phil asks her what's the matter with her kids that they don't like chocolate.

Summary: I don't know about you but it seems to me that we're staring down the barrel of something that has Alan get reamed out for being childless and thus totally unable to understand kids ever. Lynn has to get her mommyjacking in at some point, after all.
