Snarky Candiru2

Wednesday, 11 April 2012

After John and Elly leave, Mike asks the baby-sitter whose side she's on. Since she's going to be praised for foreshadowing Icky-with-a-V from "Fairly Oddparents", I'd say John and Elly's.

(Strip Number 392, Original Publication Date, 20 April 1983)

Panel 1: As she and John get ready to leave, Elly tells the sitter "Here's a list of instructions. If you need us, we'll be at this number."

Panel 2: She tells Mike and Lizzie to be on their best behavior because Paula will tell them if anything goes wrong.

Panel 3: Elly and John wave bye, bye.

Panel 4: Now that John and Elly have left, Mike asks Paula if he's on John and Elly's side or his and Lizzie's.

Summary: What this means is that is Paula going to have a sense of human and allow them to do perfectly harmless things that their constipated idiot parents forbid because they said no once and confuse being stupid with being strong or is she just going to yell "Go to bed!!!" so that she can do her homework and call her friends unmolested.
