Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 16 October 2012

In today's strip, we have Mike, Gordon and Lawrence talk about whether ghosts come out on Halloween; this somehow leads to their regretting how their curfews get in the way of getting a good scare.

(Strip Number 484, Original Publication Date, 18 October 1983)

Panel 1: As Mike, Gordo and Lawrence walk down the street, Lawrence asks Mike if he s'poses real spooks come out on Halloween.

Panel 2: Gordo proposes that what they should do is go to a real graveyard at midnight an'find out.

Panel 3: Mike enthusiastically states that they'd prob'ly get so scared, their hair'd fall out. Gordon agrees with this proposition, passive-aggressive respelling meant to nag children because their idiot mother hates the fact that to her, they sound American despite her speaking the same God-damned way and all.

Panel 4: He then says that it's a shame that their mothers won't let them out of the house past nine thirty in the evening.

Summary: I should bloody hope they don't. Hell, I'm a forty seven year old man and I don't like being out that late at night. That being said, we're in for annoying letters from stupid people about fearful moderns or the decay of society or some such nonsense.
