How sharper than a serpent's tooth is an ungrateful Sheet Shaver...

Elly got over being upset about her dad in an awful hurry, didn't she? It's only been a few days and already she's making thoughtless puns about profiting from the misery of others. This doesn't bode well for when Jim passes on, does it? We'd get a few days of what looks like mourning and then a bad pun. There are two reasons: one, she's managed to convince herself that he sort of deserves for all this to be happening what with his smoking and not taking her helpful little suggestions and all. The second, of course, is that it's not happening to her. If she were sick or injured, it would be a horrible injustice but othe people can bleed and die without affecting her in the slightest. If April had got beaten up, if Liz had been violated by a stalker, if Mike had spent the last ten months in a burn ward, she'd bitch about how bad things always happen to her because she had to interrupt her busy life of drinking (spiked) coffee and reading Harlequin novels. Her adult children are cast from the same selfish mold, too, so Jim and Iris will face this horror alone.

  • Meet The Human Shield.

    The very distressing thing about the Great Big Sham Wedding is that as far as anyone knows, Liz has no God-damned idea that she took part in a sham…

  • Attention and initiative two: Mikelectric Lizzaloo.

    As we know, Elly never managed to disabuse herself of the notion that Mike's job is to take care of Lizzie for her. She's never going to admit that…

  • The inept teacher quandary.

    It doesn't take much brainpower to have to realize that John and Elly's 'support' as regards homework consisted mostly of berating their children…
