Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 3 October 2011

We begin the week with John being a patronizing dick about Elly's need to be more than a mere housewife; since Rod was nothing like John, why does Lynn think that the grunting ape we see here is superior?

(Strip Number 4238, Original Publication Date, 4 October 1982)

Panel 1: As he works on a patient, John makes a patronizing comment to Jean about how Elly is excited about this alleged job she has.

Panel 2: The repulsive ignoramus then chortles about how he guesses that she has to get out out there to do her bit to prove herself as if her feeling that she's backed up against the wall by the motherhood she's overwhelmed by is a big joke.

Panel 3: Jean reminds John to be careful what he says about working women.

Panel 4: Her reminder that she's one of them alarms him.

Summary: As we know, Rod was not at all like the dullard bleating about hormones because he was too stupid, heartless and lazy to admit that Elly thought the comfy home she was 'supposed' to love felt like a trap; what garbage like this does is mean that he has to prove to others that he's not Ralph Fricking Kramden, it also means that, given Lynn's belief that she was married to this sack of excrement, she wouldn't even know a diamond if she held it in her hand.
