Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 6 July 2009

I wonder what sort of thing will make Elly feel bad this week; last week, it was Lizzie's use of the word No and Mike and Farley acting like a little boy and a dog. Perhaps this week, she'll freak out because John doesn't take her ambitions seriously.

ETA: Thanks to spotts1701, we know that the week will lead off with Elly's face frozen in the Bug-Eyed Glare of Existential Horror because she has to prepare lowest-common denominator cuisine in a fancy kitchen because John is an evil bonehead dork who wouldn't know good food if it bit him; perhaps later in the week we'll see the strip that has him prepare to wolf down the horrible slop he loves while commenting on how, after years of trying to force him to eat gore-may cookin' instead of good, honest grub, Elly finally clued in and started to cook things that bridge trolls, mutants and zoo animalsregular people would want to eat.

Panel 1: We start off our look at Pattersnarfing as Annie compliments Elly because she has such a beautiful kitchen. Said kitchen has a microwave and conventional over, a mixer and other standard appliances.

Panel 2: Her silhouette says that with all this stuff, she could make a different gourmet meal every night.

Panel 3: As she sits down to drink her coffee and talk smack about Connie, Annie asks her which appliance she figures she uses the most.

Panel 4: She's taken aback as Elly says "the can opener."

Summary: Annie is Lynn's mouthpiece for her odd hatred of everyday foodstuffs; it's sort of obvious that she feels inferior because she can't turn her home into a four-star restaurant and thus conflates the unspectacular-but-still-delicious food we eat every day with garbage like Cheapie Weenie Casserole.
