    REALLY??? Heck I’m a straight woman & if I was a guy I wouldn’t marry you running around with a green face mask on.

    She should put her hair up before slapping on the green goo. 2nd panel the goo is gone and then it’s back in the 3rd panel

    “Ah, the old facial gag. Lynn Johnston really likes this one. She has used it 6 times so far in the comic strip with one as recent as back in April this year.”

    Be sure to keep track. Inquiring minds want to know.

    Reminds me of that Go-gos album cover where they’re all wearing facial cream. With beaming smiles, at that.

    Oh Elly, you scared Elizabeth! She must think it’s Halloween!

    I know this is a comic, like ho, ho, but I can’t imagine anyone slapping green face goo on herself so that it dripped down her front.

    Why should he buy the cow if he’s getting the milk for free, as the old saying goes.

    She did model Elly Patterson after herself but that’s no excuse to feel sorry for her. She’s just telling her story through the lives of the Pattersons, and this series is 34 years old. If you would’ve read the entire series, then you would get to know the good and the bad. Don’t have pity for a comic that’s been running for 34 years, they’re better known than you

    I know this is just a comic strip but,all that face cream, Elly. Come on, now. Just some night time moisturizer is all that’s necessary. And John will still see the beauty in you.

    Guacamole. Not just for dipping anymore.

    This would have been funnier as a Sunday; more opportunities to show the fractious side of married life.

    Yes, these comics are from 25 years ago. I enjoyed them then and I enjoy them now! If you’re tired of “Ye Olde Face Creame” gag, then just stop reading the comic! Duuhhhh!
    Or, get a sense of humour. Pick one.

    Get real, she’s crying because Michael is sticking his tongue out at her. That, in addition to what Elly looks like with all her facial cream on, is part of what is shown as reasons why Phil doesn’t have much interest in marriage. (What is shown is that he’s a professional musician, and a lot of them are not interested in being tied down to one person. But that’s not quite as funny.)

    I meant what ISN’T shown is that he’s a professional musician. Not that anyone is reading my comments, but just in case I confused potential readers.)
