Snarky Candiru2

Part two of the Pattersons-versus-their-Christmas-tree arc has John made a fool of because his tree was too frozen to cut with his ax. 

(Strip Number 4265, Original Publication Date, 21 December 1982)

Panel 1: We start things off with the family watching as John tries chopping down the tree only to raise a cloud of sound effects.

Panel 2: The Milborough Mutant who owns the lot hands him a hacksaw and tells him "Here. Try this."

Panel 3: Having cut down the tree, John sheepishly tells the man that his ax must have been dull.

Panel 4: Since the man didn't go to University and thus cannot speak correct English, he tells John "Nope. Yer tree was froze."

Summary: Boy!! Contempt for the working man and her husband in one strip! She must have drank her Ovaltine when she wrote this one!!
