Snarky Candiru2

Thursday, 29 September 2011

In today's strip, Lynn treats the need to see any baby that's reasonably healthy-looking as being pretty as if it's a miracle instead of something that's just part of being a normal human being.

(Strip Number 4235, Original Publication Date, 30 September 1982)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Elly praise Anne for the miracle of childbirth; she does so by saying that she's done it and that Richard sure is a pretty baby.

Panel 2: Anne wonders if Elly really thinks this is the case; after all, he's bald and he's awfully red.

Panel 3: Baby Boy Nichols yawns contentedly as Anne and Elly smile at him.

Panel 4: Since he's healthy and alive, Annie agrees that Elly is when she says that he sure is a pretty baby.

Summary: The Lynnsight will, of course, make the normal human impulse to regard any new-born as being beatiful not as something bred into us to make sure that we continue the species but as a miracle.

- Notes:

Lynn is obviously trolling for letters from people who hate Mira and Therese for getting in Elly's way and April for killing Farley. Let's send her letters about how John is a stupid jerk who, when faced with evidence that he is unfair, unfeeling or unkind, says nonsense like "Chee, April sure is spoiled" or "Chee, it's the hormones making Elly feel bad and not her feeling overwhelmed and underappreciated" because he's too big a dick to say "Chee, maybe I am a jackass."
