Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 29 September 2012

In today's strip, John responds to Elly's wistful remark about how she used to imagine who she was going to marry by reminding us that men are pigs who only see women as a collection of body parts.

(Strip Number 4376, Original Publication Date, 1 October 1983)

Panel 1: Now that they're in bed, Elly tells John that as a child, she used to spend a lot of time imagining what the man she would marry would look like.

Panel 2: She then says that she had distinct preferences as regards the man's face, eyes, hair, voice and personality traits.

Panel 3: She then asks him if he did the same thing. Upon learning that he did, she then asks him if his imaginary girl looked anything like her.

Panel 4: He doesn't know; after all, when conceiving of her, he never got much higher than the neck.

Summary: The "joke" is "John is a penny-ante satyr who can only focus on a woman's bust size, LOL!!"; the punchline is that we're in for a flood-tide of nonsense next week agreeing with this sweeping generalization.
