In today's strip, we see Lynn recycle an old gag how children fight mindlessly over everything; I just hope that the Lynnsight doesn't slam her family too gratuitously.

(Strip Number 4285, Original Publication Date, 26 January 1983)

Panel 1: For some reason or other, we find Mike and Lizzie fighting over a rather simplistic construction made of Tinker Toys. Panicky Lizzie says it's hers while Aggressive Twit Mike says it's his.

Panel 2: Lizzie starts to dig in as they repeat the it's-mining.

Panel 3: The third round of both children claiming that the Tinker Toy is theirs is interrupted by having the silly thing break because they're playing too roughly.

Panel 4: Mike, who wants no part of a broken toy, walks off and tells a bummed-out Lizzie that it's hers.

Summary: While it's sort of true that we are looking at a camera-in-my-house thing, the question of why it is that Elly cannot see fit to supervise these children or why she needs to have them pitted against each other is something that no Lynnsight will ever answer directly. What we'll get is a passive-aggressive rant about how her jerk parents ruined everything by having an unnecessary second child or some such balderdash.
