Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 16 March 2012

John's whining about how hard it is to be a moderately prosperous dentist who has a relatively easy life leads him to envy a brain-damaged and abused dog.

(Strip Number 4314, Original Publication Date, 18 March 1983)

Panel 1: We find John scratching Farley's ears and musing that it must be nice to be a dog.

Panel 2: After all, someone feeds Farley, brushes his hair and rubs his back guaranteed and he doesn't have to deal with deadlines, taxesproblems and three-piece suits.

Panel 3: We then see Farley pant and scratch himself.

Panel 4: John thought-bubbles that a working man like him knows that he's had it when he envies something as low-down as a dog.

Summary: We get it, John. You hate your life and everyone and everything in it. We've always known this and don't need a whiny reminder of it.
