Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 7 January 2011

In today's strip, we get to see Lynn engage in what she calls irony and what I call getting upset because government officials don't care who she is and force her to wait in line as if she were an ordinary mortal.

(Strip Number 212, Original Publication Date, 8 January 1982)

Panel 1: As Carrie tucks him into bed, Mike asks her what she thinks John and Elly are doing.

Panel 2: She smiles a mildly envious smile and tells him that she expects that they're probably lying on a tropical beach sipping a tall cool glass of something.

Panel 3: We cut to the customs booth at the airport in Barbados; as we see Elly and John in the middle of a queue, the man behind the counter says that he can take three more but the rest will have to be served by someone else.

Summary: We're probably going to get a bunch of passive-aggressive beefing about the 'unreasonable' delays Lynn had getting her identity confirmed; that's because she has a lot of issues with men in uniform who tell her what to do. My personal belief is that it all stems from a police constable offering to adjust her attitude for her by sending her to jail because he'd heard reports that she threw her son into a snowbank.
