Angry Candiru

Tuesday, 10 April 2012

John makes a dick of himself by by criticizing Elly's tastes in clothing and then whining about how his cutting remarks shouldn't be taken seriously when reminded that the people around him have feelings.

(Strip Number 391, Original Publication Date, 19 April 2012)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we find Elly dressed up as Central Casting's idea of a spirit medium looks like and asking John his (worthless) opinion.

Panel 2: Instead of asking himself "What would Red Green do?" and lying, John tells her that it's a bit gaudy and that she looks like she's going to a seance.

Panel 3: He compounds his dickishness by laughing and telling her that he can't believe that she bought THAT necklace. Since she's married and can't be sensitive, her next move will baffle him.

Panel 4: As she storms off in anger, John whines "What are you changing for? That was only MY opinion."

Summary: John? Camera Three. She dressed that way to impress you specifically because, for reasons that escape those of us that, unlike you, have functioning freaking brains, your worthless opinion matters to her, you sorry excuse for a man.
