Snarky Candiru2

Thursday, 31 December 2009

Now that Elly has reminded us that she's witlessly misread Connie's desperately flinging herself at an unwitting and confused Phil (who takes Connie's claims that she is fine with things as they are at face value when we know he shouldn't) as being a case of her evil little brother taking advantage of her poor, damaged friend's affections, we'll probably end the month, year and decade with a reminder that John is a strawman with a pointNazi drunkard with a heart made out of stone as he points out the obvious.

Not yet; right now, Connie has to deliver a bizarre non sequitur to allay Elly's fears.

Panel 1: As Elly walks Farley. Connie greets her with a cheery "Hi, El! I guess Phil already told you that I'm going with him to his New Years' Eve show tonight." Elly murmurs Mmm-hmmm in angry assent.

Panel 2: Connie makes a sort of frightening comment about being a groupie then reassures us all by talking about the sitter she's arranged for Lawrence while she sleeps at the hotel where Phil will be performing.

Panel 3: Seeking to warn her about her evil brother and his evil habit of doing things, Elly tells her to not get her hopes up; Connie dismisses this by reminding her that she's a big girl.

Panel 4: She then says that eight now, she and Phil are just friends (with benefits); if something happens, it was meant to be. If it was not meant to be....

Panel 5: Well, that is that question, isn't it?

Summary: Too bad that the only questions she'll see fit to ask are "Why do I keep throwing myself at men who don't love me?" and "Why are men all pigs?" That's as unfortunate as her current failure to realize that Flapandhonk is really more of a frienemy than a real friend.
