Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 18 February 2011

We change gears from John yapping about toys to his wondering if an honest opinion about the ugly carving will make Elly throw something at him.

(Strip Number 4129, Original Publication Date, 19 February 1982)

Panel 1: We start off with Elly holding that ugly carving she bought in Barbados; she asks John now that they have it home...

Panel 2: ....what his honest opinion of it is.

Panel 3: He looks at it for a second.

Panel 4: He then asks how honest an answer is desirable; being reminded that she can only take so much truth causes Elly's eyes to bug out.

Summary: Expect an echo of the Lynnsight defending buying the damned thing; as you'll recall, she slammed Rod for not sharing her tastes so we can expect more of the same.
