Indignant Candiru

Saturday, 28 February 2009

It would seem that the last strip of the month is going to be filler material that has Elly form the Triangle of Horror owing to her lack of foresight and inattentiveness. Yippee. How funny it is that she's got a brain the size of a soy nut. The slice-of-stoopid-life phenomenon to which she's overracting is probably going to be predictable by anyone with two clues to rub together.

This is the third of the three strips that debjyn warned us about.

Panel 1: We start off with Farley sleeping next to Lizzie's crib. As he snores, Lizzie looks down on him.

Panel 2:She then throws one of her dolls at him. It misses him by inches.

Panel 3: She then throws one of those toys made of the linked plastic rings at him.

Panel 4: It hits him in the head and jolts him awake.

Panel 5: He barks in surprise and anger.

Panel 6: Elly barges in and complains that, since he barked at nothing, he woke the baby.

Summary: Since housework takes priority over watching over her child and her dog, she'll spend the rest of Farley's life not knowing what's really gone on. The only advantage Farley has is that since he can't speak, he can't be accused of lying when he tries to tell Elly what really happened.
