Snarky Candiru2

In today's strip, Mike starts turning into a delicate genius on us. The only good thing about it is that we're not supposed to buy into his bullshit yet.

(Strip Number 4282, Original Publication Date, 21 January 1983)

Panel 1: We start things off with Gordo asking Mike, who's making a largish, formless heap of snow, what he's doing. Mike says that he's making a snow sculpture.

Panel 2: Gordon gives a large heap of snow its right name.

Panel 3: Mike asks him what does he know anyway before chiding him about having to look at art the right way.

Panel 4: Gordon does some sort of breakdance move as he says that it still looks like a large heap of snow to him.

Summary: We can probably expect a Little Lynnie show or a whinge at the expense of people who don't know how hard it is to be a lazy hack cartoonist. Expecting her to admit that people didn't appreciate her skill because she didn't have any is not very bloody likely.
