Snarky Candiru2

Lawrence congratulates Michael on successfully stealing a nine dollar scarf and claims that Elly will be really surprised by it come Christmas. Why this is is beyond me.

(Strip Number 4253, Original Publication Date, 30 November 1982)

Panel 1: Lawrence tells Mike, who's just shoved a scarf into his jacket because he told him to, that he's sure that nobody saw him do it.

Panel 2: He then says to walk out of the store like they're reg'lar customers.

Panel 3: For reasons that I can't for the life of me figure out, Lawrence is grinning widely as he tells Mike "You did it! You lifted a nine dollar scarf!!"

Panel 4: Since most of the passers-by are deaf, Lawrence gets to tell him that when Elly sees it on Christmas Day, she'll be surprised.

Summary: Yeah, she'll be surprised! That's because she'll be screaming in rage that her son is a thief...which is probably why Lawrence is doing this. He has nothing better to do with his time than setting up a chump to get pulverized.
