Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 21 December 2012

In today's strip, Elly angrily accuses Mike and Lizzie of eating the candy canes off of the Christmas tree; the 'joke' is that the 'guilty' party is the family member that doesn't actually know what's going on around him: Farley.

(Strip Number 4394, Original Publication Date, 23 December 1983)

Panel 1: We start things off with an angry Elly looking at the Christmas tree and snarling "Okay, that does it!"

Panel 2: She then asks the kids which one of them keeps eating the candy canes off of the bottom half of the tree.

Panel 3: We next have to look at Farley be so startled by Elly yelling his name that he drops the candy cane he's chewing on.

Summary: Oh, boy. Again with the poor supervision and again with the idea that he's a man in a dog suit.
