Snarky Candiru2

Thursday, 5 August 2010

 In today's strip, Mike reassures a dubious Lawrence that the nearly hairless dog he sees really is Farley; all he has to do is to remind us that Lynn thinks that animals are untrainable. 

(Strip Number 162, Original Publication Date, 6 August 1981)

Panel 1: We start off with Michael telling Lawrence that despite his belief that the Pattersons got a new dog over the vacation that that that really is Farley; he just got shaved, that's all. Lawrence asks if he's sure; this is owing to his not thinking that Farley could have possibly survived the trip home.

Panel 2: Michael says to watch; he then tells Farley to sit, lay down, beg and speak.

Panel 3: As Farley stands there like a lump, Lawrence agrees that it is indeed Farley.

Summary: Not only is Lynn poaching Ketcham's material, she's giving people who think that Farley had a severe stroke ammunition. He was never quite right after his two days in the U-Haul.
