Snarky Candiru2

Wednesday, 9 February 2011

Now that we've established that Mike is being a pain because he's bored and that Elly doesn't take well to being given the old 'later' card, let's see what other sort of crap is on tap. My guess is that we're in for a foreshadowing of the strip that has Elly say that she hates to nag (!!) but Mike has to cooperate; Mike defines cooperation as "doing what Elly says without his opinion factoring in."

Not as such, no; what we have is Mike about to do something silly in order to test the vacuum.

Panel 1: Lizzie asks Mike what he's doing; Mike, who's holding the hose to the vacuum, says that he's going to vacuum the stairs.

Panel 2: As he puts a marble down the hose, he tells her that he's gotta check it first.

Panel 3: She asks if it's working; he doesn't know yet.

Panel 4: He's still got 23 marbles left to go.

Summary: This is what happens when you try getting a seven year old to do an adult's job; expect more of the same tomorrow.
