Snarky Candiru2

Sunday, 29 June 2008

Our Sunday is of a piece with the preceeding week as it's another example of Elly unable to cope with a six year old BEING six.

Panel 1: We start things off with Mike sitting around as the telephone "RINNNGGSS".

Panel 2: He answers it....

Panel 3: ...and tells the caller that Elly is outside tight now. Having never been allowed near the phone before, he does not know to ask if he should get her. He instead asks if the caller wants to talk to Baby Lizzie.

Panel 4: Lizzie proceeds to babble like the toddler she is.

Panel 5: The caller's response is to curse at her.

Panel 6: He shoves an angry Liz aside and expresses confusion because the jerk at the end of the line still wants to talk to Elly. He's a kid, remember. He does not know any better.

Panel 7: He yells "MAAAAAAAAA!!!!!" at the top of his lungs.

Panel 8: This is followed by an audible "CLICK" as the person at the other end got sick of this and hung up the phone.

Panel 9: Mike, not knowing what "hanging up" means, innocently hands Elly the receiver and tells her it's for her. She has her typical look of despair because she thinks he did this on purpose.

Hypothesis: Mike is going to catch eight kinds of Hell for an honest mistake because his mother thinks he does things like this on purpose. I hope that this is the coda to Random Moments of Martyrdom and we can get back to the Settlepocalypse tomorrow.
