Snarky Candiru2

Wednesday, 7 January 2009

The only question that matters about today's strip is "Will it be old or new?" because we know that it won't get upbeat for another two or three years. That's because that's when Lynn moved out of Lynn Lake.

It's the overly-hyped strip that we all know and loathe:

Panel 1: As Elly stands next to her with a baffled expression, Connie sighs that Phil's gone and taken off just like that.

Panel 2: She then yells that love'em and leave'em is the story of her life.

Panel 3: Elly asks her if Phil actually said he loved her.

Panel 4: This causes her to be confused by the repsonse "Okay, okay, LIKE'EM and leave'em, then."

Summary: Elly has no idea the Connie is angered that Phil seems to have thought of her as just a one-night stand and will eventually go to Montreal to try to make him see her as a soulmate; that's because she's too damned literal-minded and thought love had something to do with love'em and leave'em. Let's see what Kool-Aid Nation has to say about this.
