Facecrime in Pattersonland.

It’s always amazed me how inappropriate the reactions of the Patterson family are to commonplace events. We start off with how Elly overreacts to things that most people would only find mildly upsetting. Either she can’t hold her pointless baffled rage in and she makes the Triangle of Horror (trumanf’s term for odd way her gobsmacked expression is drawn) or her hostility burns at a slower rate producing  with he calls the Furrowed Brow of Indignation. This is often accompanied by the Hovering Stormcloud of Self-Righteous Fury. Another favorite of mine is what forworse calls the Bug-Eyed Glare of Existential Terror; this occurs when a Patterson encounters something that they don’t expect. Instead of having the curiosity to find out what this novel thing is, the Foob will stare at it as if it’s a threat to anything more than his or her complacent ignorance. I’m not as fond of the Sticky-out Tongue Laugh of Malice, though; it hurts to be reminded that the Pattersons regard the suffering of others as a source of cheap amusement. The thought is that since they aren’t affected, the other person’s pain doesn’t matter.
