Snarky Candiru2

Wednesday, 10 March 2010

Since Lynn seems to be hopscotching around the March strips, it's likely we could see Elly try to get an oblivious Mike to get the lead out only to have him blame her for his own idiocy today.

And I'm right again.

Panel 1: We start off with Elly telling Mike, who's still in his pajamas and playing with blocks, to hurry up and get dressed; he answers "I am".

Panel 2: As he sits there doing something baffling with his juice, Elly tells him to eat his breakfast; he again answers "I am!"

Panel 3: We next see her looking at her watch and telling him that he's late; he yells "I AM??"

Panel 4: Since he's somewhat stupid, he then yells "WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME???"

Summary: The sad thing is that Michael never did get any better at taking the God-damned hint; worse, he also never outgrew blaming other people for things that were his own fault. What's more, Elly never got any better at telling her kids to do stuff; this is the same woman who dropped the ball when it came to telling April to not open the gate. Eventually, the idiot woman would praise herself for being a great communicator.

Travelogue: Day Five.

Since I have no idea when Lynn will update her travelogue of tedium, I'm putting up this thread in advance.

And here we go again with Day Five of Lynn's wacky misadventures:

Collapse )

- She leads off with more of her codwallop about finding some mythical "Mysterious East" and babbles about how odd it is that not everyone speaks English.

- She next describes her destination by comparing it to the sort of arts-and-crafts project that wopuld get Mike taggedas a non-linear thinker.

- She follows that by saying "Golly gosh, it must have been bad that all those people died in that tsunami but, hey, at least we get a sparkly new resort out of it so it's all good" while making snotty asides about her fellow tourists and totally failing to realize that the disaster killed the over-fifties whose absence she comments on.

- She next describes the boat ride to where they filmed "The Beach" in a mildly silly manner after which she goes on to more or less condemn how soft North Americans are for insisting on wearing hard hats without realizing that the 'cultural differences' that keeps the Thais from wearing safety gear are a government that doesn't give a rat's ass about their safety and their inability to afford said things.

- Next, she repeats the insincere palaver that people hand idiot tourists like her swallow while complaining that there's no AC.
