Snarky Candiru2

Sunday, 27 January 2013

In today's strip, Mike, Gordo and Lawrence build a snow-fort, stock it with a mighty arsenal of snowballs and deny that they're going to throw them at anyone. This raises the question "How is Lynn going to ruin this bland, slice-of-life strip?"

(Strip Number 6126, Original Publication Date, 29 January 1984)

Panel 1: We start things off with Mike, Gordon and Lawrence starting to build a snow fort.

Panel 2: Mike packs down one of the walls.

Panel 3: He then says to make'er nice an'solid so's nobody can knock'er over.

Panel 4: Next, he wants them to cut some notches so's they can see who's comin'by.

Panel 5: He then says that they gotta get more snowballs.

Panel 6: His arming for Snowmageddon will have to wait; that's because John is standing over him. Mike says a nervous "Hi, Daddy."

Panel 7: He then asks John what makes him think that they was gonna throw these at anybody.

Summary: This, by itself, is a rather bland little slice of life thing that we can all relate to on one level or another. Sadly, we can expect Lynn to write notes that will spoil our ability to enjoy it.
