Snarky Candiru2

Thursday, 7 January 2010

Now that it's clear that we're in the middle of the pipe-smoking arc, let's remember what that leads to: Connie's eyes turning into saucers as she thinks that Destiny is guiding her to Phil. Let's also remember that back in 2007, another dizzy twit also played games with Fate and lost.

But, for now, let's remember that Mike doesn't know what is or isn't cool.

Panel 1: Mike tries his damnedest to look discreet as he tells Lawrence he intends taking Phil's pipe to the Poirier's to smoke it.

Panel 2: Lawrence is aghast as he asks Mike if he really intends smoking that thing.

Panel 3: He points out that they could get sick or get caught out; what he doesn't point out is that both things will happen.

Panel 4: Mike brushes this off by asking if he wants to feel good or look cool.

Summary: This, of course, is one of the earliest examples of Michael engaging in reckless, self-destructive and ultimately ridiculous behavior in a doomed effort to make himself look more impressive. The sad thing is that he never realized that all the people who laughed at him when he was a class clown were laughing at him instead of with him.
