Snarky Candiru2

Wednesday, 6 January 2010

Since I'm not sure how quickly Lynn plans to get to the "Phil left something better than his trumpet behind" strip, I don't know if yesterday's strip means that we're in for a bunch of strips that show us that since her kids are trying to destroy her brain, Elly will fail her course.

ETA: This is what I expect to see today. I'd originally put it in an lj-cut but shoebox2 reminded me it was a bad idea.

What we do get, however, is the Phil left his pipe behind strip.

Panel 1: We start off with Lawrence, who's playing with a toy spaceship, telling Michael "I liked your uncle, Mike; too bad he had to go back to Montreal."

Panel 2: He then says that he liked Phil's trumpet and that it would be neat if he'd left it behind.

Panel 3: Mike smiles and tells Lawrence that Uncle Phil forgot something even better than his trumpet.

Panel 4: Lawrence is gobsmacked after Mike says that he forgot his pipe.

Summary: I don't know what's worse; knowing what's coming, knowing that there are going to be a lot of letters that give two kids playing with pipes a free pass or knowing that people think that we're going to be thrown a curve.
