Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 14 August 2012

Elly tries explaining to John that she doesn't like his insinuating that he thinks of her as lazy and useless. This causes him to ask a ridiculous question that betrays an ignorance of who Elly is.

(Strip Number 4359, Original Publication Date, 16 August 1983)

Panel 1: We pick up right after the last panel of yesterday's strip as Elly tells John that he hates it when he teases her like that.

Panel 2: Since he isn't built to get points that restrict his freedom to be an asshole and a bully, he says "Come on, Elly."

Panel 3: She tells him that what he said made her sound as if she were lazy, useless and stupid.

Panel 4: Since he's a dullard who has no idea of what he married, he witlessly asks if she can take a joke or not.

Summary: He's a fine one to talk. The least jibe at his expense enrages him. This is owing to his belief that only his own feelings can ever be said to matter. Good thing that he married his own kind.
