Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 15 September 2012

We end the week with a sort of cute-in-a-heartrending-way strip that has Mike remind us that he has a small child's idea of how Heaven works.

(Strip Number 4368, Original Publication Date, 17 September 1983)

Panel 1: It's the end of another day so we find Elly tucking Mike in; as she does so, she assures him that Farley will be just fine.

Panel 2: He asks if he should say a prayer for him and she says that that'd be a nice idea.

Panel 3: His asking if he should go directly to God or ask for someone in the pet department confuses her.

Summary: In a better-written strip, that blank-eyed stare would be a rueful smile because in that strip, Elly wouldn't be baffled by freaking everything.
