Lynn Johnston's Bad Parenting 101

So I've got a case on insomnia and I'm trying to go to sleep by reading old FBOFW strips. Then I come across this particular gem from August 4, 1991, where Elly "accidentally on purpose" forgets that she left 4-month-old April strapped into her car seat in a hot car in the middle of summer.

WTF? This wasn't even funny back in 1991! It's NEVER funny! By all accounts, April should be dead. It doesn't take long at all to fry a little baby's brains out, and there's been several very sad reports of this happening this summer already. This is something serious, it should never be the punchline of a joke.

And to think we thought Elly was negligent with the ravine. No, she was trying to off April before she was even six months old!
