I'm opening a second thread

to cope with the traffic. If there's anyone about who hasn't checked in yet, it's going to be difficult for them to wade through three pages, two of which are collapsed.

As I said moments ago, I'm actually hoping Paul dies now. He had outlived his usefulness as a character, and this way, his honor will stay intact. Just hope there won't be too many staring-into-space last panels. I hope Liz goes too far off the rails for that.

Wednesday, November 29

Yep. New storyline. So Elly/John's grossly unfair accusation against Paul was the last word for the time being. Liz won't even try to defend him. And that is truly the last straw, for me. I cannot wait for the retcons. I will LOVE to hear how they try to justify this.

Also, a little while ago, Cookie Monster enlisted my aid in fixing something. Him: "Hold that end...Pull it tight...Is it tight?"

Me: "As tight as Liz's twat."

Him: "OUCH."

On to the strip.

"An'"s: One.

Panel 1: That's perfect. Absolutely perfect. Because this strip is in the toilet. I love how we see Mike doing a "man's job", which will no doubt earn him another six months' reprieve from any other household duty. Like how Robin is watching, though. Is he merely interested (toddlers do like to watch Daddy fix stuff, and sometimes "help"), or is he the cause of the problem?

Panel 2: Yep, Robin was bad! Probably a toy in there. And Saint Michealagh said a bad word! And Robin has the finger in the mouth and the baby talk -- Aypo all over again.

Panel 3: Whoa, Mike. Seriously, calm down. Your child should not look like that when you talk to him. For that matter, you should not look like that. No wonder Merrie wets the bed. Get a grip.

Panel 4: Sudden morph to a very cartoony face on Mike. Well, suffer, jackass. All you Pattersons can suffer. Along with your creator. I'm not kidding; I'm so disgusted with Lynn I can't possibly be objective or find any humor in today's strip. Or maybe any strip in the future. I was trying to explain the Granthony hate to Cookie Monster this evening, and when he kept objecting to all my objections, I finally said, "It's not any one thing; it's the accumulation of so MANY wrong things. We're fed up, that's all."

So I will leave you with this. Apologies to Gilbert and Sullivan. (I had to sacrifice rhyme, and the meter is a teeny bit off in some spots; apologies for that too.)
