Indignant Candiru

Wednesday, 27 July 2011

Today's strip shows us a scene from the first night of the Pattersons' train ride to Vancouver; since Lynn forgets that getting there is ninety percent of the aggravation, things don't go well.

(Strip Number 293, Original Publication Date, 28 July 2011)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we find Mike and Elly wedged into their cramped little roomette; Mike's asking Elly if she thinks that John and Lizzie have more room is greeted by an angry "Probably."

Panel 2: A few moments later, Mike tells her that he needs to go to the bathroom; Elly whines "Not again". This causes a forty-six year old man to wonder if his wetting the sheets because his idiot mother forgot that his bladder is as tiny as the rest of him would be better for her.

Panel 3: As she gets up to accompany Mike to the washroom, she's greeted by John who alludes to his being in a similar predicament by making a mild joke about how they have to stop meeting like this.

Summary: Given that most of the rest of the problems that they have with the kids stem from Elly's seeming inability to understand that Mike and Lizzie aren't shrunken adults, we're in for a rocky ride West.

The Latest Podcast.

I'm putting up this place-holder for the next podcast to come down the pike; my guess is that it might just be about how Elly is a better grandmother than Mira.

And I'm wrong; it's more of what infuriated shoebox2 last Friday as Lynn once again spouts errant nonsense about the creative process. Also, Aaron is castigated for taking advantage of her idiotic belief that she had to enter a trance state in order to create.
