Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 13 January 2012

We whipsaw from Lynn upbraiding hockey players to her reminding us that Elly is obsessed with what she sees in the mirror.

(Strip Number 4272, Original Publication Date, 14 January 1983)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Elly and Connie drinking coffee; as they do so, Elly complains that it's a brand new year and she's still the same old her.

Panel 2: She smiles as she explains that she's thinking of doing something that will have a significant impact on her life.

Panel 3: Connie smiles even more broadly as she asks "Great! What is it? Politics? School Board? A full-time job?"

Panel 4: Connie rolls her eyes in mild disgust when a gobsmacked Elly says that she was actually thinking of getting a new haircut.

Summary: Since the new-look Elly would have the same annoying personality, same misdirected rages and same appalling ignorance, all she'd do is change the exterior. It's like putting a bad product in a different package.
