Snarky Candiru2

Coffee Talk, 22 October 2008

Let's see what comment Lynn deems worthy of a response today. Odds are it'll be glurgey and worshipful.

ETA: Well, at least I'm consistent---consistently wrong. Today's letter is from Ryan H in Seatlle and he calls her on the Shania Twain reference. Her response is that the Pattersons' adventures are no longer married to a specific time so as to make things easier for the younger people. That way, they'll feel more comfortable when the strip goes into straight reprints and there are no topical references.

It seems to me that the last three strips of this week would be reprints so Lynn can maintain a balance between them and new-runs. It should be noted that all the people who think that this boring blipty-doo wouldn't make it onto the page if it came from an unknown are bang-on. Let's see how she wastes real-estate today.

It would seem I'm wrong again because we got another new-run. Silly me, expecting consistency from Lynn.

Panel 1: We start off with Elly dressing Lizzie in the rain gear we saw yesterday as Mike puts his own on.

Panel 2: This is so they can go out to the back yard to test it out.

Panel 3: Mike asks Elly if he can play outside in the rain for a little awile. She says yes.....

Panel 4: ......as long as he doesn't get wet. That's a fairly good way to prevent him from playing in the mud; that's because he's going to stand there trying to figure out how someone can play in the rain without getting at least a little wet.

Summary: As so many of you have said, this bland nonsense would never get green lighted if it were just coming out.
