Snarky Candiru2

Wednesday, 7 November 2012

The next installment in the "Meet Brad Luggsworth" arc has Lawrence praise Elly because Mike was able to trade away every last thing in his lunch. Hum! Does this mean that Lynn will whine about being unappreciated or boast about being able to do the same as a child?

(Strip Number 496, Original Publication Date, 9 November 1983)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching a smiling Michael holding his open lunchbag. Gordon tells him that he's got peanut butter, another boy wants to trade him two Oreos for his butter tart and a third asks him if he wants an apple.

Panel 2: An impressed Lawrence tells Mike that his mom sure packed him a good lunch today.

Panel 3: After all, he got to trade everything!!

Summary: I'm not sure what the Lynnsight will be but I do know that at least one Coffee Talker will look at this and think "Why that ungrateful little brat! Doesn't he know how hard Elly worked and how much love she put into his lunch?" (It should be noted that the sort of angry person I have in mind tends to say "Get a life" when we have a point of view that makes a point she doesn't like.)
