Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 25 May 2012

When asked why she told Georgia about all his bad qualities and why he's a bad person to be around, Elly tells Phil that she's more objective than Marian. This, of course, means that Marian is biased in Phil's favor and since he won their childhood, that's a bad thing.

(Strip Number 411, Original Publication Date, 27 May 1983)

Panel 1: Phil, having walked into the kitchen, asks Elly and Georgia what the two of them have been doing.

Panel 2: Georgia explains that Elly has been telling her all sort of stories about his past. When you have to remember that Georgia gets blindsided by the existence of Connie Poirier, I should think that these 'stories' are all about how AWFUL it was that he got more privileges despite being born later and was treated more leniently as a general rule because he has a penis.

Panel 3: Phil asks Georgia why she couldn't have talked to Marian about his past.

Panel 4: Elly talks fluent Codswallop about how sisters are more objective.

Summary: If she's running around with Lynn's idea of what being objective is, I wouldn't trust Elly to tell me the time of day. Most of her conversation tends to whining about how unfair her life is and why other people need to spontaneously combust because they're happier than she is.
