Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 15 December 2008

It seems to me that Phil will finally show up today or tomorrow. This, of course, will lead to the disaster-in-the-making that is Connie's pursuit of him. Just what we need to make the holidays perfect, right? The anguish of a lonely woman to the tune of the demonization of a professional musician.

Well, maybe later in the week. Right now, MikeClone has to not eat his veggies.

Panel 1: We're at the dinner table and MikeClone asks RevElly what she's serving. She says "Vegetarian lasagna! Try it - you'll like it!"

Panel 2: He points out that real lasagna doesn't have vegetables in it. She says that it's healthier.

Panel 3: She then says RetJohn-likes-it-don't-you-you-think-it's-delicious-isn't-that-right?

Panel 4: Realizing that he's not only being used to make MikeClone eat something he might not like, he's also being told to like this OR ELSE, RetJohn begs RevElly not to put words in his mouth. MikeClone says it's all right if Mom does so.

Panel 5: Otherwise, it would be full of 'fake' lasagna. This makes RetJohn do that nasty, hate-filled sticky-out tongue laugh. Nothing like undermining the little woman in front of your kid, eh, JSFF?

Summary: When you consider that in a few years time Mike would be like all the other Pattersons and eat anything that didn't move too quickly, this is a bit hard to swallow.
