    Canadian’s don’t get “Social Security” … they get “Old Age Security”
    Whatever it is called, it is probably going from grandpa to pay John, and then from John to pay the ceiling repair man!

    So those in the concussion scandal are saying that you play pro football you might get hurt? Were these the same geniuses who said girls who do gymnastics might get sprained ankles?

    A pious populace is to the benefit of all, ergo it would behoove government to use tax money to subsidize churches and synagogues.
    Oh wait….that is illegal…just read the First Amendment.

    Elly will soon have another problem on her hands: her mother’s dementia. This is evidenced by Marian’s concern not that he may fall and sustain injury, but about his trousers.

    Indeed. Paterno was required to do three things:
    #1: Confront the homosexual face-to-face about the molestation.
    #2: Report it to university authorities.
    #3: Report it to the local police.
    Paterno did 1 & 2, the only thing he did not do was 3. Since the Penn State president and higher-ups chose to sat on it, they bear more blame than does Paterno. This will probably not go away for some time, just like BBC and the Jimmy Savile scandal.

    True. Most normal situations cause Elly to be snitty at the least, violent tantrums at the worst. It was surprising that when there was a genuine emergency, such as Elizabeth wandering away at the airport, that Elly’s blood pressure would react in a way that she would blast off past the jetliners and into the mesosphere!

    An idea for the next strip:
    Jim: “I feel so bad about breaking the ceiling.”
    Marian: “Don’t worry Jim. John and Elly have hired a professional workman to repair ir.”
    Jim: That is noble of them, considering how much John struggles to bring food to the table. How were they able to afford the repair bill?
    Marian: I gave them next month’s social security.

    Good one! Of course, for Jim and Marian having to forfeit their social security, all it means for them is one less trip to Las Vegas.

    What USN1977 probably meant was the running gag where Elizabeth or Michael does something, but their lack of attention to detail makes a mess which one of the parents expresses anger over while the other remarks “Oh, how cute!” Elizabeth was well-known for this, although her parents lost patience with her over time, one of the reasons being she was getting less cutesy-pootsie as she got older.

    What is Elly squinting at in the fourth panel? Did bits of fiberglass get in her eye?
