Snarky Candiru2

Wednesday, 8 July 2009

It's pretty likely that today's recipe will feature the following three unpalatable ingredients:

  1. Elly being filled with despair because her family only likes the simplest of foods.

  2. John making his smug remark about how if you give a girl enough time, she'll finally come around and cook good food.

  3. Elly being filled with even MORE despair.

This dish will be to the liking of people who have Kool-Aid flowing through their veins but be spat out by everyone else.

Actually, Ingredient Two is John defensively admitting that he's a simple man who loves the simple things. Everything else holds true, though.

Panel 1: We start off with John, whose eyes are bulged out, explain to Elly, who's holding a dish full of fruit, that it's not that he doesn't appreciate fancy dishes. It should be noted that Farley is in the background heading toward his food dish; this is significant as his need to eat helps prove the point Lynn wants to make.

Panel 2: As she sets the tray down, he says that he likes simple food.

Panel 3: As she pours food into Farley's dish, he says that he could probably eat the same meal every night.

Panel 4: He then says "Surely there are others who agree with me." This leaves her staggered because she can only think of one other family member who could make that claim: Farley.

Summary: That's because housepets are the only 'people' Lynn can think of who would love to have a monotonously-regular diet; the hallmark of the human being is the need for variety. Or, to put it more succinctly, Rod ain't nothing but a hound dog.

ETA: We have a new banner on the homepage: Mike or Liz enjoying him/herself in a cute way. Too bad that we know that Elly is about to show up and start bellowing like the peevish, ignorant fool she is.
