Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 17 November 2012

We end the week with Elly finding out about Mike getting clobbered. Tune in next week as she says something that will not work in the real world.

(Strip Number 503, Original Publication Date, 19 November 1983)

Panel 1: We fast-forward to Mike's having returned home; having noticed that he didn't have those injuries this morning, Elly asks him to let her to take a look at him and see if that is, in fact, a black eye he's sporting.

Panel 2: As he wipes his nose on the back of his hand, she asks him if he's been fighting.

Panel 3: As she cleans him up, he says that it was Brad and Brad alone doing the fighting.

Panel 4: His face merely happened to be in the way.

Summary: As howtheduck suggests, this is where the audience can expect pre-recorded laughter. What the audience cannot expect is any sort of useful advice from Elly.
