    And now for the number one question in the world that brothers would never ask their sisters:

    “What are you sis? Sterile?”

    Michael would just take a bite of a slice of watermelon and spit the seeds out (at Elizabeth’s face).

    Michael reminds me of the men who run the organization that plans our activities in this senior residence where I live. You can have any idea you want, as long as it’s going to a casino, out to lunch, or a ballgame. If you suggest going to a play or a museum, you a something that needs to be ‘handled’, especially because you aren’t a man…

    Typical male. Thinks she only wants to have long nails (or anything else) to attract a boy. Did it ever occur to him that she wants long nails because she likes them?

    There are times when it seems that Elizabeth has more ‘smarts’ than her brother ! ! !

    Hey is Michael bipolar or something? The last time we seen Michael he was being soaked to the skin in an automatic car wash, because he left the windows down, and here he is acting all superior and ridiculing his sister! Hey Liz, go tell your dad to go outside and inspect his beloved car!

    Wow, what an obnoxious comment from Mike in that penultimate panel: what good are her nails if guys don’t like them? As if everything a girl does needs to be for a guy’s enjoyment…? Wow.

    Lynn’s Comments:

    I recently had an appointment where the receptionist had incredibly long nails—to the extent that she couldn’t type easily or send a message on her phone. “Holy smokes!” I said, “Those things are a handicap!” It wasn’t the nicest thing to say. It just popped out. I was embarrassed. I apologized and was happy to leave. I thought, “That was something my mother would say!” My outspoken mother died at the age of 72. “Hi, Mom!”

    Being a bass guitarist, I tend to assume long nails are a preventative from doing anything manually productive.

    It starts early, this idea that girls do things just to attract boys. As of we couldn’t possibly want to do anything solely for our own pleasure.

    Elizabeth should look at herself in a full-length mirror; she’ll see what the guys REALLY GO FOR!!

    works for me. No such thing as a truely seedless watermelon. I hate those little white seeds, almost as annoying as the black ones.

    Since watermelons are seedless now, the artificial nail industry has gone in to a slump

    If I believed those advertisements for artificial nails, they are also useful for opening cans of soda.

    At least Liz is using her fingers. There’s a whole Sunday strip where Elly is eating watermelon extremely messily, spitting, slurping, etc. and ends up with her saying “The true experience can only be had in private.”

    You don’t need 10 of them to remove the seeds from your watermelon.

    This reminds me of a woman I used to see in a coffee shop. She used to wear very long plastic nails as Elizabeth has here. I thought of her as “Freddy” (but I never called her that) because she made me think of Freddy from “Nightmare on Elm Street.”

    Don’t be egoistic, Mike. Girls usually wear make up and stylish clothes primarily to impress each other, not the guys.

    Very important for a girl because we all know that if you swallow a watermelon seed, it will grow in your stomach! (At least that’s what I told my younger siblings.)

    I wore fake nails for many years for two reasons. The first was to protect my own rather fragile nails. The second was because I like the way they look most of the time. I’ve had a few nail techs that really botched them, but then I’ve had some talented techs that could do exactly what I wanted every time.
