Indignant Candiru

Saturday. 7 March 2009

Let's see how Lynn decides to wrap up John's week at the office. Will he complain about how awful it is that he has to deal with patients, boast about being a better man than the sitting-duck antagonist he condemns or whine about how much easier Elly has it? Either way, he's gonna look like a chump so it's all good.

He's going to whine about the noise his drill makes.

Panel 1: We see him drilling into the jawline of another merry Milborough mutant. Oddly enough, the drill's sound is represented by "WHeeeeeEEEEEeeeeEEEEEEEE" instead of "Drill! Grind! Scrape! Scronk!"

Panel 2: As he continues to drill, the assistant prepares another instrument.

Panel 3: It's now the end of his work day; he reminds of this by saying it's been a long day. His assistant, who looks like the April of 2008 with Dee's hair color, asks him if something is wrong. He says there is.

Panel 4: He's not hearing the high-pitched grinding sound any more. That's right; he's not only used to the drill's sound, he's addicted to it. Of course, since he has his fingers in his ears as he says the punchline, I could be right about the gas tank leaking.

Summary: Lynn has turned John into the dentist from Little Shop of Horrors.
