Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 24 November 2008

It's fairly easy to predict what we're going to see this week because of what we won't see. We won't see anything about an adult concern like Connie's relationship with Ted or anything like that because Lynn's convinced that people want to see Elly suck as a mother and Farley whizzing on the carpet.

Spoiler [HAH!!!] Alert: It's Mike's crack at being a peevish moron because he blames Elly for his own stupidity.

Given the long heads and absence of screaming, this is a new-run that introduces us to Mike being a shit at school.

Panel 1: We see Elly remind him to hurry up getting dressed or else he's gonna miss his bus.

Panel 2: She also reminds him not to forget his backpack or lunch.

Panel 3: She also has to remind him to remember his hat, gloves and pizza day money. His response is to roll his eyes in boredom/annoyance.

Panel 4: She waves goodbye to the bus he's on.

Panel 5: The Delicate Genius, who'd forget his head if it wasn't attached to his neck, bitches to Lawrence that Elly forgot his painting shirt. Remembering things, you see, is all on her.

Summary: Mike is stooooooooopid and useless as his interactions with the future evil-genius-posing-as-a-simpering-doormat mother of the children he ignores when he isn't trying to run away from them in existential horror will prove.
