Now that we seem to be in gag-a-day country again, let's see what Elly's next wacky adventure will be. My guess is that she'll stand around all bug-eyed because Lizzie or Farley made a mess.

Nope. She's gotta haul out something she already ran a little while ago about Mike Pattersnarfing as a defense mechanism.

Panel 1: We start off with Mike CHEW-CHOMP-GOBBLE-GULP-GLUTting down his dinner; since his cheeks are distended by the food he's angrily wolfing down, he looks like an enraged hamster.

Panel 2: This so angers Elly that when she asks him where his manners are, her question mark is replaced by an exclamation point.

Panel 3: She says "You're eating like a Pattersonpig! Now SLOW DOWN!!" [Notice she doesn't say to not eat messily, just to do so slowly.]

Panel 4: He whines "But MAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! This is liver and spinach!! If I slow down, I'll taaaaaaaaaaste it!"

Summary: The worst part is not that Elly also eats like this and wants him to do something she is not willing to do. It's not that we already saw this a few months ago. It's not even that he's expected to eat foods he hates. It's that he's expected to do so alone; it's as if Elly is setting him up to fail so she can yell at him for doing something she knows to be impossible.
