Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 22 February 2011

In today's strip, we find out that Elly has an odd tendency to hoard leftovers.

(Strip Number 4131, Original Publication Date, 23 February 1982)

Panel 1: We start things off with Elly warning John that she's fumigating the fridge; that's not a Canadianism or even an old-fashioned regionalism being passed off as one. What it is is Elly engaged in hyperbole.

Panel 2: He looks inside a Grubberware™ container and asks her what's in it; she has no idea.

Panel 3: Since it's been in the fridge for months and probably isn't safe to eat, he asks her why she hasn't thrown it out yet.

Panel 4: She tells him that it's because it's not moldy yet.

Summary: We're doubtless in for a Lynnsight about how it's a good thing that she saves old leftovers for a rainy day; it'll be as palatable as the casseroles Elly serves her family night after endless night.
