Snarky Candiru2

I wonder what hilarious screw-up we'll deal with today. Perhaps it'll be the infamous "Just one cookie" strip.

Perhaps later; today, John has to 'insult' Elly.

Panel 1: We start off with the two of them watching a screen full of static; Elly says "John? Remember when we were dating and couldn't keep awy from each other?"

Panel 2: She then exhorts him to remember the rush, the magnetism and when they used to stare at each other in glorious silence.

Panel 3: Elly then asks what happened to them that made that sort of magic disappear.

Panel 4: He says it was pretty much when she stopped putting make-up on before breakfast. Given that he's sporting some pretty serious stubble, he's a fine one to talk.

Summary: Lynn wants us to believe that John is a douche who's blaming the loss of magic in their marriage on Elly for letting herself go; she wants us to avoid thinking that Elly's non-stop negativity, idiocy and whining might be a turn-off. She's also setting us up for something really painful because she got the Rod-bashing in ahead of schedule; perhaps she'll find out that he too gave into temptation.
