Snarky Candiru2

Wednesday, 21 December 2011

Today's strip is another thing that Lynn believes should have happened the way she depicted it; since it's Farley relieving himself on the tree and embarrassing the Pattersons, one has to wonder about her.

(Strip Number 6006, Original Publication Date, 22 December 1982)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching John holding a camera to take a snapshot of the family next to their tree. He tells Elizabeth to stand next to Elly and Michael to look towards him. What he should have done is get someone to hold Farley because the shaggy nincompoop is sniffing the tree.

Panel 2: John takes the picture only to have Elly and Mike look at a cloud of mist billowing up from their left and thus ruining the shot.

Panel 3: John yells Farley's name because his pissing on the tree destroyed their Kodak moment.

Summary: It's a goodish thing that the studio is closing for the year soon; that's because I ain't looking forward to letters bellyaching about how we shouldn't pick on the Pattersons for being stupid enough to not supervise Farley....or, for that matter, not leaving him at home.
