Okay that's just messed up...

What kind of sick kid would refuse to go to a party? Even if you didn't like the birthday boy, you could've just went for the free food and fun party games. But to outright refuse is on a different level.

Life just isn't fair sometimes. Li'l E learned a lesson that day.

A downer of a lesson, but nonetheless...

Explains kind of a lot, actually.

An unfortunately true example of how kids can be the cruelist beings in existence.

Mildly odd that Li'l-er E had to ask his mother for a birthday cake. Most mothers think of that sort of thing on their own.

The strip doesn't really say why the children didn't want to go the party. It could be something else entirely. Being the son of The Devil, for instance. Not quite the same thing.

Plus, I couldn't help wondering if maybe he was approaching total strangers and inviting them to his birthday party, because he simply didn't know any other children. Really, IMHO this is one of those Sunday strip situations where it would've really helped for Tat to break out some frickin' dialogue.

Son of the devil he may be, but that just hurts.

Maybe he doesn't know that. He's a little kid, what's he know?

Well, I was just offering a possible explanation for the behavior, I never said the behavior was justified.

Frankly, I don't find Li'l E's past nearly as interesting as I find his present -- y'know, the whole his personality's entirely reversed itself and so far no one's even noticed thing -- so, cute yet tragic though it may be, this is sort of a "so what" strip to me. Unlike some people, I don't feel required to spend paragraph after paragraph complaining about that sort of thing, though. Wink Tat'll get back to something I for whatever reason consider particularly fascinating eventually...

(and, seriously, as I've said before, there are strips I'd pay him to write/draw -- within a reasonable price range -- but he obviously works for the sheer love of the craft)

Really, when you think about it, the children could just as easily find Li'l-er E objectionable because of his mother. I meah, who the heck is she? We don't know. Maybe she's a pagan goddess and Li'l-er E's passing out invitations in a Christian Fundamentalist neighborhood. Pretty much anything goes until Tat says otherwise.

Well, if we're gonna open that kettle of fish, how's he know what a birthday cake is in the first place? I was just sayin', is all.

Plus, letting him take the initiative to ask is a good pedagogy.

Another Freudian Excuse. But this brings interesting question: where is his mother and what she is dong all this years?

On another note, notice that none of the children are younger versions of pre-established characters. Whether or not they're total strangers to Li'l-er E, they're certainly total strangers to us. That saves Tat the trouble of having to figure out how old Li'l E is to begin with, in comparison to the strip's other characters.

(I can't speak for anyone else, but I've tended to have the impression that Li'l E is younger than Slick and 'Nique, maybe in the vicinity of the same age as Crim.)
