We shift gears from watching John and Elly use Mike's conscience as a weapon against him to a reminder that Elly seems to regard it as a necessity that the plates be cleaned of the pile-high helpings of bland, tasteless foods they hate that she insists that they eat. Today's installment shows us that not even Farley likes Elly's cooking.

(Strip Number 4075, Original Publication Date, 5 October 1981)


Panel 1: We start out with Farley SNUFF-SNIFFing the contents of his food dish.

Panel 2: As a frowning Mike looks on, Farley reels in disgust and nausea as whatever toxic swill that's passing as food causes a dizziness spiral to appear over his head.

Panel 3: Mike tells Farley that he knows what he's going through.

Panel 4: As Elly takes a plate and pot that used to contain the revolting meal that's currently in Farley's dish, Mike says that they couldn't eat it either.

Summary: The rest of the mini-arc has Elly whine that her family should be glad to eat the pile high helpings of foods filled with ingredients they detest before reminding us of her obsessive need to eat the left-overs. The notes, of course, will talk about Ursula's need to do likewise.
