Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 26 October 2012

In today's strip, Lynn continues merrily on with her rip-off oftribute to the Flintstones by having a one-off character named Doris smack FredJohn and BarneySteve over the head with a frying pan.

(Strip Number 4383, Original Publication Date, 26 October 1983)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Steve cackle to John that the women are all terrified now so it would be quite the thing to go to another window.

Panel 2: As luck would have it, he manages to terrify Mrs Nedwitt all over again when he appears in the kitchen window. Having had enough of what she assumes to be some jackass of a teenager messing with them, a dark-haired woman picks up a frying pan and tells the rest of the sales party guests that she's going to take care of this.

Panel 3: She takes care of things by smacking John and Steve upside their heads.

Panel 4: As the woman administers T-Fal justice, Mrs Nedwitt says "Oh, my. I do hope Doris doesn't get hurt."

Summary: The only thing hurt are her feelings. Here she is, having a pleasant time watching the sales agent demonstrate products just begging to make her tomorrow better and as far as she knows, two undisciplined hooligan kids have come to spoil her fun.
