Angry Candiru

Monday, 3 August 2009

Let's hope that we don't actually have to bear witness to Ted commiserating with John because he married "one of those" after Elly bites his head off for being an even more patronizing jackass than John is. We don't need to be reminded of how hateful the strip was back in 1980.

The men in this community might want to wear a cup because that's exactly what we're going to be dealing with; Lynn is, after all, going to knee Rod in the groin with sufficient force to make every man in the English-speaking world double over.

Panel 1: We start off with John, who's dipping a chip in a bowl Elly's holding, telling Ted he doesn't know what hassles are.

Panel 2: As he eats the chip, he says that altogether, he has nine girls working for him.

Panel 3: Elly counts the "girls".

Panel 4: She then unhinges her jaw and yells "YOU FINK!! YOU COUNTED ME!!!"

Summary: Personally, I'd be more enraged that the asshole used the word 'girl' instead of the correct words 'woman' or 'lady' but that's just me; I'm not stuck in the dated mindset that permeates the Patterverse and states that women are merely objects for some wormy, fruity dickwad who plays with trains like a damned kid to fantasize about while he masturbates.

ETA: It's the Civic Holiday up here so we get to look at Farley biting into a squeaky toy and getting confused. She didn't run the damned thing on Canada Day or the Fourth of July but she'll run the damned thing on a glorified bank holiday.
