Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 13 March 2010

It seems to me that since we haven't seen John make an ugly fool of himself in a while that we might get a new-ruin that has Lynn remind us that he thinks of Elly as his servant.

I'm close; what we get is Elly mildly ribbing John about where Mike gets his tendency towards wise-assism from.

Panel 1: Dot-eyed Doll-Boy Mike peels that banana he yelled for yesterday.

Panel 2: He then puts the peel on his head.

Panel 3: He goes on to put the banana in his mouth and make monkey noises to amuse an almost two-year-old Lizzie.

Panel 4: Elly smiles and tells John that he gets that from his side of the family.

Summary: If this is one of the last strips before we go to straight reprints, I'm almost glad; this is a fairly bland and benign way to bow out. Nobody is yelling at anyone because he can't read her mind or blaming them for things that aren't their fault.
