Snarky Candiru2

Phil's cheerful announcement that he's found a place to live is used as a Trojan horse to deliver the viral payload I call Lynn's jealousy of her brother.

(Strip Number 303, Original Publication Date, 17 August 1982)

Panel 1: We start the proceedings with Phil asking Elly if she's ready to hear the good news about his moving out; given her neutral expression, I'd say she sort of is.

Panel 2: As he puts his trumpet in its case, he tells her that his new roommates are a drummer and a saxophone player.

Panel 3: As he puts more of his belongings into packing boxes, he tells her that he figures that the house has seen its fair share of good music.

Panel 4: He knows this because the houses on either side are empty.

Summary: Between this and the inevitable chirpy Lynnsight that talks about discordant noise and evil brothers that steal away any chance she might have to bond with her DADDY!!!!, we are in for an awful day with this one.
