Snarky Candiru2

Thursday, 28 July 2011

In today's strip, Mike wanders off on his own and makes a mild nuisance of himself.

(Strip Number 294, Original Publication Date, 29 July 1982)

Panel 1: For some reason, Mike is at the dining car telling some man in his forties that his daddy is a dentist before asking him if he's going to eat all those potatoes and if that lady is his wife.

Panel 2: Elly shows up all out of breath and tells him that they've been looking all over for him.

Panel 3: He responds by making a mildly assy joke about not being able to get lost on a train.

Panel 4: The man tells Elly that Mike's right; they've told him to get lost twice now and he couldn't.

Summary: Since Lynn is sort of clueless, we're probably going to end up being whined at about how awful it is that children don't play fair and sit wherever she plops them down.
