Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 23 November 2012

We come to the home stretch of this unrealistic story line by having Brad follow the career path of Lumpy Rutherford by accepting Mike's friendship. Too bad that life isn't a television show.

(Strip Number 508, Original Publication Date, 25 November 1983)

Panel 1: We start with Mike haltingly trying to get Brad's attention which causes the larger boy to ask what he wants.

Panel 2: Mike stammers out a request to be friends instead of fighting all the time.

Panel 3: Since Brad is a sitcom character instead of a real bully, he accepts said offer.

Panel 4: This causes another boy to point out that since Mike fainted, Brad's locker must be fairly ripe.

Summary: As others have said, this scenario would only take place if we were about to hear the outro music and watch the car, bank and Charmin ads; in real life, Mike would have ended up stuffed in Brad's locker.
