Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 29 September 2008

As you have no doubt figured out by now, Lynn has set things up for the Glorious Return of Farley. The last time around, Mrs. Baird lied through her teeth in order to steamroll Elly into getting a puppy she didn't want. It would seem that this time, RevElly will be guilted into it in a different way. Instead of responding to a phony and unrealistic threat, StuporMom might think that if she gives in, she'll make MikeClone not resent NeoLizic.

The week leads off with a four neo-Foob bore-off. As compared to the Settlepocalypse, it's as dull as dirt. As an example of outsider art, OTOH, it's fascinating.

Panel 1: We start out with a bored MikeClone and NeoLaurence sitting on the porch mourning the loss of the summer.

Panel 2: They wish that they could swim, have picnic, hang out, have fun all the time and meet a cartoonist who doesn't fall prey to the overuse of the word an' because she wants to feel superior to people who speak colloquial English.

Panel 3: MikeClone goes down to the laundry room to explain to RevElly, who's carrying that damned laundry basket again, that since there's nothing to do, he and his friend are bored, bored, BORED.

Panel 4: When asked what she said, MikeClone responds "Enjoy."

Summary: It's not about you, it's about her, kid. You're not allowed to have fun because she's upset at having to do what she has to do.
