Let's see what sort of inane mess Lynn serves up this Sunday. I almost hope that it's Elly shrieking because Farley cruelly insists on acting like a dog; that way, we can at least have something novel to be annoyed by.

Well, it involves Farley but that's about it; we have a new-ruin that reminds us that Elly doesn't want her children to know that she has a sense of humor. Why this is is, of course, beyond me; I can't for the life of me understand why Elly doesn't ever want people to see her laugh or smile.

Panel 1: We start off with Mike and Lawrence heading into the laundry room as Farley looks on in the background; Mike motions for Lawrence to keep quiet.

Panel 2: Farley looks on as Mike and Lawrence rummage through the laundry.

Panel 3: They strike paydirt: one of Elly's bras and a pair of her panties.

Panel 4: They chase Farley with the intent of dressing him up in women's undergarments.

Panel 5: They have a heck of a time getting to stay still long enough to do so.....

Panel 6: ...but they do succeed; they find the humiliating result quite amusing.

Panel 7: Their laughter attracts a gobsmacked Elly.

Panel 8: She lectures them about how wrong it ws to do what they did and suggests that they go outside if they want to roughhouse.

Panel 9: After they leave, she beholds their handiwork......

Panel 10: .....and laughs herself silly.

Summary: I can sort of understand that Elly would like to present the image of a stern disciplinarian but to never let her children know that she has a sense of humor seems sort of limiting. Too bad for most of us that most people will miss that because of a more obvious question: I may be off base here but I think that most of the Coffee Talkers will join me in asking what sort of kid would do what they did in the first place.
