Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 21 March 2009

Let's see if yesterday's inadvertent exercise in Ho Yay leads anywhere; odds are that it won't but you never know with Lynn.

It appears that howtheduck is right to assume that John's night out will depict him giving into his throbbing biological urges.

Panel 1: We're at the dentist's office and Jean says "So, you're going out on the town with Ted, are you?"

Panel 2: As he points out that while the cat's away, the mice will play, he makes that stupid palms-out gesture Lynn likes to draw.

Panel 3: He then asks what's wrong with a night out. Jean's answer: "Nothing..."

Panel 4: Expect, of course, that when the cat's away, mice tend to turn into rats.

Summary: In the old order, John's evening out led nowhere because he'd rather look, imagine what could have been, realize he had it good and irritate Elly with a smile she never understood. In the new world, we could actually see John break a commandment or two. What really bothers me is that his timing is off; as howtheduck said, when the cat's away, the mouse invites his friends over to watch the playoffs and play poker instead of going barhopping.
