Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 6 March 2010

If we go in straight chronological sequence, we'll have to deal with Connie wondering what Phil actually thought of her showing up at his place. If so, we might actually get Lynn's official explanation of who Allo Girl is.

Panel 1: We start with Connie telling Laundry-toting Elly that she's still embarrassed about the way she chased Phil; since she's a dimwit, she feels no remorse about the way she treated Lawrence.

Panel 2: As Elly reaches in a cupboard for something, Connie drones on about how he must think she's an idiot for showing up at his doorstep like that; since he has no idea that she was ever there, this seems to be a misplaced concern.

Panel 3: As Elly puts the tea on, Connie whines that he must think she has no class, he must think.....

Panel 4: Having finally realized that she's been pouring her heart out and not getting any response, she asks "Well, what does he think??"

Summary: Having Elly stand around like a dummy not acknowledging her 'friend' doesn't seem like the most promising way of explaining what Phil thought of this whole thing.

Lynn's travelogue: On the beach (resort)

I'm setting up this thread for the third exciting installment of her Thailand story; I haven't anticipated a story this much since Red was telling Harold about the Possum Lodge whittling contest.

- Questionable Vocabulary: Lynn deliberately used the word "duds" to refer to what we call "clothing"; this is on par with her pretending that she's as low-rent as her fans are by saying "spuds" when she means "potatoes". (Also "fanny" and "loo.")
- As expected, she talks about the bathroom and Thai beer.
- She seems to not have realized that this part of the world is a magnet for tourists from Malaysia and Japan; since all Asians look alike to her, she has no idea how many of the people she thinks are wait staff are her fellow guests.
- Imperialism Alert: She returns to her favorite theme: bitching that the Thai people don't, by and large, look or act like extras from the King and I nor do they live in traditional homes.
- Entitlement Alert: She gushes about how great it is that she's walled herself away from the scary real world so as to absorb the fake, safe, prepackaged ersatz Thailand.
