Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 18 February 2013

We begin the week with Elly telling Michael and Gordon that she's very busy so they'll have to find something else to do. Given that there's piss-all to do in Milboring that she approves of, it's as if she's going out of her way to find a reason to punish him.

(Strip Number 552, Original Publication Date, 17 February 1984)

Panel 1: We start things off with Mike asking Elly if he and Gordon can come in for a little bit.

Panel 2: Elly tells him no, they can't. Y'see, she just got home and has a lot to do.

Panel 3: Michael asks "How come every time she's got a lot to do, we can't do anything?"

Summary: It's because Elly has very poor time management skills and is incapable of coping with distracting influences. Also, she's looking for a reason to be angry with him.
