    John should have known better than that! What example is that setting for the children?!?

    Instant gratification! Don’t wanna wait, must have NOW. Ooh, just wait until they’re teenagers! xD

    Happy Thanksgiving to all! I’m sure that Turkey Claus will visit all of our houses this year!

    I don’t blame John. When your salad is so toxic it turns the salad bowl black, I would prefer cookies.

    Nothing like having two Thanksgiving Days per year. The For Better Or For Worse clan and everyone across their home and native land celebrated in October, while folks in the land south of the border do likewise today. A happy and blessed Thanksgiving to one and all!

    This could’ve been just any dinner, it didn’t say thanksgiving. But they should’ve waited. In punishment I’d give them the same thing tomorrow.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    My kids try that, but my husband has been trained not to encourage it. I never thought that in making them wait without I was teaching them to defer gratification. Woo-hoo!

    Seems to me this can be a Thanksgiving strip or a normal dinner. Works either way!

    20 minutes would have been perfect to go outside for a game of catch or tag.

    Happy Thanksgiving! I’m thankful for the comics and everyone who posts here!

    Everyone have a wonderful and bountyful Thanksgiving with the trimmings and I made my own type of pumkin pie less sugar. The parade is colorful and weather in Kansas in nice a little cool. News states Space Shuttle can be seen here in Kansas this evening and I want to see Christmas lights in the neighborhood or tomorrow night.

    WRT Burgundy2’s comment: Kinda reaching to find criticism in Ellie today, eh how?

    What you call “criticism” I call “understanding.” One explanation for this story is that John is like a child with no patience or self-control. Another explanation is that John actively seeks to oppose Elly’s goals. Another explanation is that John and the kids are pure evil. I kind of like that one.

    However, another possible explanation is that John has seen the food, does not find it to his liking, and seeks the cookie alternative. Lynn Johnston has given me 2 clues for this last explanation: (1) She changed the salad bowl colour to black, where we could see it used to be white and (2) The only thing we saw Elly put into that slow cooker was carrot coins and now we see a big bowl of yellow mush on the table for dinner. Lynn Johnston is a subtle artist. She doesn’t change a salad bowl colour for no reason.
