Snarky Candiru2

Wednesday, 23 September 2009

I hope that aprilp_katje is right to assume that the Syndicate has insisted on a no-re-reprint policy; that's because if they didn't, I'd be deprived of something new to snark. I'd rather see Elly be driven to the point of exhaustion by trying to master the insanely-complicated technique of alphabetizing files than I would watching John tell a mutant it's okay to diss the Little Woman.

I guess it only applies to the three that appeared last May; that's because the strip aprilp_katje deconstructed last Friday finally showed up.

Panel 1: As he and Elly pour themselves cups of coffee, Doctor Vercotti shows up and asks John where he got the cute little assistant.

Panel 2: He then laughingly tells John he bets that he can't keep his hands of this one.

Panel 3: He next tells John he should let her outta the kitchen more often.

Panel 4: Elly reacts to his asinine remarks and John's smiling at them (instead of defending her honor and beating the shit out of this dude) by thought-bubbling that some compliments are so insulting.

Summary: Some compliments are also against federal and provincial law; Lynn seems to not be aware that nowadays, Doctor Moron would be shipped off to a sensitivity training bootcamp wherein he'd be booted in the groin every time he harrassed someone sexually.
