Snarky Candiru2

In today's strip, Mike is worried that Farley will die and says so. This would be bad enough were it not for a Lynnsight that seems to me to be Lynn cackling with glee because of all the letters she got that said the same thing.

(Strip Number 466, Original Publication Date, 14 September 1983)

Panel 1: As John loads Farley into the station wagon, Mike asks Elly where they're taking him. Elly says that they're going to the vet.

Panel 2: Mike notices that Farley looks awful sick and asks if he's gonna die.

Panel 3: Elly tells him that that's not a nice thing to say.

Panel 4: Mike says that he had to say it because he was thinking it.

Summary: Well, I should think that more people would write letters about pets that scared them by being awful sick. That's because not even Inman could get behind being told "Ha-ha!! I fooled you!! He's going to be okay!!"
