Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 19 December 2011

Today's strip is the first part of a micro-arc about the Pattersons going to a tree farm to chop down their Christmas tree; as expected, Lizzie objects to the idea of Daddy killing it.

(Strip Number 4264, Original Publication Date, 20 December 1982)

Panel 1: We find the family in a forested area next to a sign which says "Cut your own Xmas trees" as a beaming John, who's carrying an axe, asks them if they're ready to look for their tree.

Panel 2: As they walk through the lot, he asks them "Isn't this great out here in the open air?"

Panel 3: Having come upon one tree in particular, he asks them if they're all agreed this it's the one. Having noticed something that displeases her, Lizzie tells Daddy to wait.

Panel 4: That displeasing thing is the fact that John is about to chop it down so she pleads with him to not kill it.

Summary: I wonder what the Lynnsight will be today. My gut tells me to expect a bit of fluff about how Lynn said the same thing to Merv but it could be any blasted thing.
