Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 24 January 2012

In today's strip, Mike compares the need he, Lizzie and Christopher have to drink to a television commercial. I'd like to think that this came from Lynn's sigmoid colonimagination but fear a Lynnsight that says it actually happened.

(Strip Number 4284, Original Publication Date, 25 January 1983)

Panel 1: As Elly's normal, decent conversation continues, she tells Anne that Connie is still dating Ted but cares for Phil who's dating Georgia who's seven years younger than he is and....

Panel 2: Before she can tell Anne what she thinks of Georgia, she asks Mike why he and the other offsprings have invaded her space. He asks her if they can break for a commercial.

Panel 3: The product he'd like to sell is "The three of us are thirsty and would like to have something to drink."

Panel 4: Having gotten a glass of something each from the station manager, he tells them that they may now resume normal programming.

Summary: This is almost cute. I just wish that I weren't anticipating a rather horrific Lynnsight that would make it not cute.
