The Farley conjecture and the cabin from hell.

As we know, Lynn loves to remind us that Farley is a shambling, shaggy dunce whose instincts will always get in the way of his being a contributing member of the family; she likes doing that almost as much as she likes to depict Elly as an oblivious rube who can't understand that Farley doesn't and never will understand English because he isn't a dwarf in a suit. Where she runs into a brick wall with the former is by reminding us of the latter; since he's in the care of a woman who doesn't understand dogs or want to, his training at obedience school was either never reinforced or contradicted so often, she'd trained him to do all the wrong things. We also have to consider his recent maltreatment; as we know, he was hauled in a poorly-ventilated trailer with an unreasonably high internal temperature because his idiot owners didn't know what else to do. While his body survived, his brain didn't; he's more or less brain-dead now and only capable of eating, mating, barking and treading water. This, of course, makes him a perfect fit for the Pattersons; not only do they seem to want an untrainable dog they can complain about, they're not the sharpest knives in the drawer themselves. As an example, I'd like to talk about a question I missed out on because I thought it too obvious to mention; simply put, whose cabin were they really in anyway? The Pattersons never bothered asking themselves that question because they were too busy trying to not learn from John and Elly's screw-ups but it's one that troubles me. Wouldn't the real owner object to having it ransacked by idiots?

    As you all know, I’ve made a lot of noise over the last decade about how Elly has it in her big, fat head that there’s this bullshit conspiracy…

    As we all know, Lynn had no use for Mira's style of grandparenting despite it being much to be preferred to Elly's. While we saw a normal person…

  • On not really handling it.

    As we know, the strip that was re-issued on 25 December 2013 was a rather alarming one owing to the fact that idiot Michael pointed a toy gun at…
