Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 8 November 2008

Now that my computer is fixed again I feel confident in putting up a thread for tomorrow. Since we've run the course of the reprints that introduce Farley, we could expect to see a new-run OR a reprint that occured soon after. Y'see, Farley licks Mike and he acts like it ain't no thing but when Lizzie kisses him right afterwards, he yells "YUCK!!" The reason I expect to see that is to inject the toxic sibling rivalry that marred the Early Years of the strip into the New-run era.

It's a new-run with a glurgey, fridge-quality pay-off.

Panel 1: We start off with RevElly asking herself why, if the last thing she needed was a dog, she got a puppy. This tells us that the point of Thursday's exercise in revisionist Foobery was her getting on her pal's nerves.

Panel 2: She tells herself that she bought him all the necessities which she then lists. Hypothesis: Even though she didn't want to get him, she'll be damned if she doesn't supply his every need.

Panel 3: She now finds herself with another baby, more or less. She can't figure out why she did that.

Panel 4: Her musings are interrupted by the reason for Farley: a Kodak moment. As she reminds herself to get her camera, I'd like to point out that this is where the banner for the month came from.

Summary: The new-and-improved FBorFW now contains 50% more sappiness.
