Today's strip is, as could be predicted, an old one from the nasty, shrieky period.


Panel 1: We start off with 6 year old Michael, happily playing in his messy room, blissfully unaware of the havoc that awaits him.

Panel 2: The scene then shifts to John holding baby Lizzie and calling her "Tootsie-Pie." while Mike looks on with a neutral expression oh his face.

Panel 3:While in the foreground we have John asking how his "bunnikins" anmd his "cutesie" are (with Mike looking on happily), we see in the background the person who'll destroy this scene of tranquility: Elly, carrying a load of laundry.

Panel 4: Having gone into Michael's room, Elly sees the typical sort of mess a six year old boy leaves and is naturally horrified and angered.

Panel 5: We return to John, who's happily calling Lizzie "girliekins". Too bad his crazy bitch wife wants to come on down and harsh everyone's mellow.

Panel 6: And harsh she does. She yells "Michael Incorrect Middle Name Patterson, go downstairs and clean your room so I can barge in later and yell at you for not doing it my way." (She uses "Thomas" when it's supposed to be "James." Also, for some reason, he's sleeping in the rec room.)

Panel 7: Whatever his middle name is, he looks at Elizabeth and tells her that some day, she too will get in so much trouble as to be called by her real name.

Hypothesis: If I'm right about the hybrid hinting at what next week's plotline is, we are heading back to the Settlepocalypse.
