She Who Laughs Last, Laughs Best


I only read one comic strip on a daily basis.  I check in on the Patterson's and see what's new in the For Better or For Worse universe.

I'm confused by today's strip.  Read it below and we'll continue this discussion around the bend.

To laugh or to cry?

April and Elizabeth are clearly having a little sibling tiff while both rush to get to where they need to be.  April loses it and calls Elizabeth "LARD BUTT!" and then I get awfully confused.

Lizzy is giving April the evil eye while April cries and says "She who laughs last, laughs best."  What exactly does that mean in this context?  Who's laughing?  Why is April crying?  Did Lizzy smack her in the head in a frame that got deleted?  Am I missing something?
