The unknown daughter of Frank and Nancy.

For those of you who still follow the comic strip Luann, it would appear that she's finally broken up with the latest substitute for super-crazy, no-way dream guy she doesn't stand a chance in Hell of dating Aaron Hill. While this usually means that she's going to sit on her bed staring into space and moan that she's sure to die alone, her reaction to this pme seems to be 'go on a road trip to New York with her friend Bernice and a friendly lesbian.' This astonishes the Hell out of her parents because suddenly, they don't recognize who she is. The reason that I mention this is that I would like to remove the unnecessary qualifier 'suddenly' because the core truth of the comic strip Luann is that her parents do not now and never have had the blindest idea who she is and never seemed to want to enlighten themselves.

For starters, we've got to deal with the fact that we would be forgiven for assuming that Nancy plugs into a Borg alcove to regenerate of an evening because she comes across as an automaton who chants "IRRELEVANT INPUT DETECTED!" when confronted with anything that isn't Luann cleaning her room. It doesn't matter how lost or hurt or lonely or confused the child feels as long as her room is all tidy because having a living space as sterile as Nancy DeGroot's mind and soul guarantees bliss. Factor in the fact that her alleged father is little more than the organic excrescence of a recliner and only seems to pay attention to her when she does something to frighten, embarrass or anger him and you're left with the sad display of two boomer nincompoops who have no idea what her deal is.
