Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 16 November 2012

In today's strip, Mike responds to the beating he just took by stomping a bush into nothing out of sheer frustration at being helpless and alone. Lawrence agrees that if Brad were a bush, Mike could have beat him. Also, if Carrie Patterson had wheels, she'd be a bus.

(Strip Number 502, Original Publication Date, 18 November 1983)

Panel 1: As they walk towards a small, leafless bush, Mike tells Lawrence "Brad thinks that he's so tough. Well, I'll show you what I could have done to him."

Panel 2: Mike yells in sheer frustration at the stupid situation he found himself in as he stomps the bush into little pieces.

Panel 3: As Lawrence surveys the wreckage of what used to be a small shrub, he says "Neat, Mike..."

Panel 4: He then astonishes Michael by saying "If Brad was a bush, you'd'a creamed him for sure."

Summary: All that remains now is for Elly to get a heads-up so she can say something that doesn't help.
