Snarky Candiru2

In today's strip, Lynn blithely mocks organic farming. In short, this Foob has been brought to you by Monsanto.

(Strip Number 6018, Original Publication Date, 21 July 1983)

Panel 1: We find Danny and Michael in the midst of the field as he lets the boy the the wheel of the tractor. Beardo the Weirdo tells Mike that there's lots to learn on a farm. 

Panel 2: He makes his point by pointing out that while oats are feathery-looking, wheat has a grass-like stalk.

Panel 3: He then points to a neighboring farm and says that they too are growing wheat. Mike points out that the field is mostly filled with weeds.

Panel 4: Danny says that they're growing organic.

Summary: The Lynnsight will probably be all about how people make such an annoying deal about pesticides in the water and antibiotics in the meat and blah-blah-blah about how she doesn't see any sort of problem.
