Snarky Candiru2

Thursday, 22 September 2011

In today's strip, the Nicholses are forced to rely of the kindness of a Porsche-driving stranger in order to get to the hospital.

(Strip Number 4229, Original Publication Date, 23 September 1982)

Panel 1: We find the Nicholses resorting to having to hitchhike to the hospital; Steve tells Anne that he knows this is silly but they have no choice but to do so.

Panel 2: A little while later, a man in a sports car who I'll call Howard Blatant asks them if they're having trouble; Steve replies "Yes!! My wife is having a baby!!"

Panel 3: Blatant tells them to jump in.

Panel 4: Having noticed that it's not as roomy as the hoverwagon they left at the side of the road, Anne asks how someone is supposed to jump into a Porsche.

Summary: My guess is that the Lynnsight will either be out having to accept rides from strangers in an emergency or about how sports cars and soccer moms aren't very compatible.
