Snarky Candiru2

The one where we first come to the realization that Elly's inability to pay attention to April's comings and goings is going to end up causing a disaster.

Panel 1: We start things off with April behind the baby gate wanting to play with Goggie.

Panel 2: Farley sighs in contentment because the gate is in the way so he cannot get mauled today.

Panel 3: The strip proper begins with unattended April rooting through the kitchen cabinets while Tunnel Vision Mom Martyr Elly makes another time-intensive dish her family will have to muscle down.

Panel 4: Given the setting, we're expected to believe that April is evil and deceitful because she thinks that measuring spoons are a rattle made to delight her.

Panel 5: Mom Martyrs everyfuckingwhere will howl "SHE KNOWS!!!!" over and over when people like us point out that April hasn't a fucking clue what the things she's tossing all over the place actually are because she's fourteen God-damned months old fercrisakes.

Panel 6: She then upends the dogs dish because all she sees is something fun to spill.

Panel 7: Elly savors the fruits of her culinary ticka-tacka-tappa: another indigestible casserole that will weigh everyone down.

Panel 8: When she rejoins the human race, she thought-bubbles that no great accomplishment comes without the sacrifice of having to clean up the mess her inattention made.

Summary: Mike's creative trance that blocks the children from his mind is writing crap. Elly's creative trance that blocks children from her mind is cooking crap. I wonder what Liz's crap will be.
