Snarky Candiru2

Sunday, 1 June 2008

I'm putting this place-holder for tomorrow's strip for those of us who get the Sunday paper early. A detailed analysis will appear tomorrow.

Panel 1: Well, we wanted to see Lawrence and here he is selling John and Elly a tree to put in their oversized backyard.

Panel 2: They pay for it at the office.

Panel 3: In the foreground of this panel, we see Edgar's silhouette while in the backgound, the delivery truck drops it off.

Panel 4: We next see him sniffing at a tree as John and Elly work on planting the new one.

Panel 5: As they continue, we see him just after he marked his territory.

Panels six through nine show a repetition of this as he inches more gradually to where John and Elly are. You can see where this is going, right?

Panel 10: He prepares to, shall we say, christen the newly-planted tree.

Panel 11: He is then scared away from doing so by a panicked John and Elly. If they wanted to avoid his urine killing it, they should have done sonmething to control his behavior.

Panel 12: We next see him in the bushes trying to figure out why they were screaming at him.

Hypothesis: They should have gotten April to take him for a walk or something but they just didn't think.

Spoiler: Due to a hiccup at Foob Central, we now know that the reprint is over. Next week features new material with April, Eva and possibly the rest of the Smackdown Squadron.
