Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 15 February 2011

In today's strip, we get a bad pun about how Mike doesn't take good care of his toys; this leads into a bitchfest about how unappreciative he is that reveals how his parents begrudge him his youth.

(Strip Number 229, Original Publication Date, 16 February 1982)

Panel 1: We start things off with John holding an RC truck and telling Mike that a) it's broken and b) he only just got it.

Panel 2: Mike says that he couldn't help it and it's not HIS fault.

Panel 3: He did, after all, read the destructions.

Summary: Tomorrow's strip should feature John getting a phone call from Bil Keane asking for his punchline back; what it'll be is Mike making another bad pun about how he's not the smart-aleck John thinks he is.
