I know. What is wrong with these kids that they leave a drumstick? That’s prime kid-eating food.
I think what we are seeing is the story move in a direction where Tiffany’s father will restore her financially, if he sees his daughter taking on a profession that he considers to be beneath her or his family name.
Farley is not exactly in charge of his own destiny here. He doesn’t feed himself junk or leftovers and if he doesn’t get enough exercise that is also not his fault. Clearly Elly is lecturing herself and not the dog.
You could combine it with a Mexican dessert and call it a flanicure. You could do one where it makes you more regular with a branicure. A jungle man could get a Tarzanicure. You could go to the Middle East and get an Iranicure. Soccer moms could get a minivanicure. Runners could get a ranicure.
You’re right. In the past we have seen the kids try to get Farley to eat Elly-cooked food that they didn’t like, only to have Farley reject it too. This does mark a change in Farley’s attitude.
I’m sure a dog (mine or anyone else’s) would eat a food they don’t like “when they get hungry enough,” but why do that to your dog?
That’s a good question and so far I don’t think we have seen the answer to it in the comic strip. We have seen the dog food change, but not the reason why Elly felt the need to change it.
I guess this means the new dogfood must be 6 times more terrible than we thought.
They change Farley’s dog food to one that he does not like. Elly seems to be under the impression that if Farley gets hungry enough he will eat that nasty new food and she will win the battle. I never had a dog that wouldn’t eat everything as fast as they could possibly get it in their mouths, not matter what it was.
However, I have had a cat that would refuse food and had no problem with going on a hunger strike for days. Elly’s trick would not work on her. We will see who wins this one.
Imagine the fun when Tiffany is informed that she is not allowed to run a business out of a dormitory. Also imagine the fun when Ox tells people about the great massage he got and people assume she has opened a massage parlor.
