Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 4 June 2012

We start the week with the sort of animal cruelty that Lynn finds too funny to resist. Given her inability to see things that inconvenience her, the Lynnsight will end up being a variation on the theme "It's just a cartoon dog, get a life, HUM!!!"

(Strip Number 417, Original Publication Date, 6 June 1983)

Panel 1: We start off with Farley sniffing the tap that usually has a garden hose attached to it and making a curious whine at its dripping.

Panel 2: As he starts noisily lapping up the dripping tap, Mike looks on with a sort of curious smile.

Panel 3: Mike turns on the tap and splashes a horrified and confused Farley.

Panel 4: As Farley looks at him with what looks like disgust, Mike apologizes but then says that there are some things you just gotta do.

Summary: We already know that Lynn thinks that dogs are ridiculous bearers of disease, filth and chaos and has no real sympathy for the pain they seem to endure at her family's hands because they're just dumb animals. The notes will reveal her angered confusion at people who do feel things that they shouldn't. What are they trying to do? Make her feel bad? That's nuts, right?
