In yesterday's strip, Elly hit a new all-time low as she had a hissy-fit about wanting to resign her commission as a mother because April asked testily but politely for sufficient time to put her homework aside before coming downstairs to Pattersnarf. Let's see how far Lynn makes dumb-enough-to-not-play-the-hidden-immunity-idol Elly sink now. longlongwaytogo confirms our expectations that April will be expected to apolgize for her "uncalled-for defiance" but let's just see how loathesome and stupid the strip is.

Panel 1: John asks April to apologize to Elly. Reason: He only knows Flapandhonk's biased version of events and he's too stupid to figure out what happened or ask what really went on. April says she will in a minute.

Panel 2: John insists on her doing so post-haste. To remind her who the parent is, he pulls her chair away from her work station. Douche.

Panel 3: April tells a literally-steaming Elly that she's sorry for yelling at her just now.

Panel 4: She then explains that she's got a heavy work load and there are only 24 hours in a day.

Panel 5: She then states that when she's at University and out from underfoot, life will be easier on everyone.

Panel 6: She is confused by the bear hug Elly gives her in response. I can see why, though: as much as she's vexed by the Martian, Elly can't really picture life without a child to holler at.

Hypothesis: John is as good a father as Elly is a mother. A real man would have asked what really happened instead of blindly attacking those who maketh the provider of his nookie sad. Instead of a real man, we gotta deal with this absurd, useless dickweed.

Prediction 1: Flapandhonk and JSTF will spend tomorrow fretting about a daughter most people would have the sense and decency to proud of.

Prediction 2: One of April's Magical!Friends (Eva: the Magic!African-Canadian, Luis: the Magic!Latino or Shan...non: The!Ma...gic!Diff...er...ent...ly!Ab...led!Per...son) will tell her to be grateful she has parents who treat her like a shitheel.
