Indignant Candiru

The Tomes of Destiny.......

In her answer in yesterday's Coffee Talk, Lynn reiterated her intention to have Beth write a book (or books) to show us the first decade or so of the Patterson's lives after the Settlepocalypse. Whether there's only one book of destiny or many, I expect to see the following themes expounded:

Given that Lynn regards kicking Rod in the crotch as Priority One, aprilp_katje is right to regard the following as the most likely strip for today:

Panel 1: As John gets ready to leave for work, Elly reassures him by telling him not to be so sensitive. After all, when she married him, she was looking for love, not perfection.

Panel 2: His response, as he gets into his hovercar, is that he married her because he knew that, despite her many flaws, it would last the rest of their lives.

Panel 3: As Lizzie looks at us as if to say "How did I end up in this crazy house?", Elly screams "WHAT FLAWS??" to his rapidly-retreating vehicle a good twenty seconds after he left.

Summary: Have you got an hour or five to spend there, crazy lady? Listing them could take a while.

This tells me that Saturday's strip will have RevElly ask herself why she listens to RetConnie's nonsense about appreciating her ungrateful turd of a husband. The nerve of that man; doesn't he know that women in Foobland are allowed to criticize men but not vice versa? It doesn't matter how many flaws a Patterson woman has; they are to be told they are perfect.

Foob's Paradise

Did you know. . . ?

Foob's Paradise is still being updated!

I stopped checknig back about the time the intial storyline ended; I hadn't realized CanuckDownSouth was keepin' on keepin' on.


The more recent story takes us a few years in the future--April is at college, and Liz has left Millborough. Jim and Iris seem very happy, and it looks like Mike and Dee will become bigger players.
