Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 12 November 2011

In today's strip, we're reminded that John is evil because John likes pretty girls and doesn't mind saying so.

(Strip Number 4250, Original Publication Date, 13 November 2011)

Panel 1: We end the week with John and Elly discussing the day's events before going to sleep; Elly leads off by asking "Georgia's a nice girl, don't you think?" John replies by saying that she's very pretty.

Panel 2: When Elly tries steering the conversation her way by reminding him that Georgia is bright but perhaps a bit too chatty, John tells her that Phil's new lady friend has nice teeth.

Panel 3: Elly is super-dissatisfied when her attempt to remind John that Phil and Georgia have being musicians in common is met by his talking about her having a nice figure.

Panel 4: She half-way yells that she's talking about what's important; his bug-eyed leer when saying that he is as well makes me think that his eyes ain't the only part of him that's visibly bulging.

Summary: We get it, Lynn; all men are leering cretins who can't wait to reject you for empty-headed tramps with pneumatic chests and no personality.

Review of 'Farley and the Lost Bone'

From the latest issue of CM Magazine (warning:  just as glurgey as that same reviewer's review of Farley Follows His Nose):

Ironically, one of the other books reviewed in this issue is No Shelter Here:  Making the World Kinder For Dogs, by Rob Laidlaw.
