Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 4 May 2013

We end the week with a reminder that children are evil, ungrateful monsters who live to torment the poor, put-upon parents forced to feed, clothe and house the parasites.

(Strip Number 606, Original Publication Date: 5 May 1984)

Panel 1: As Michael practices his new trumpet, Farley howls along so as to seem to accompany him.

Panel 2: This leads to Mike playing a really loud note and Farley howling really loudly. It's at this point that I personally start thinking, Farley isn't really so much 'singing' along as reacting to the horrible noise that he's forced to endure.

Panel 3: Someone off camera (probably a sour, four-eyed jackass with a train fixation) yells at him to cut it out.

Panel 4: Michael thinks he is going to enjoy practicing if it annoys the parents.

Summary: Actually, Michael, Elly will make sure that you DON'T enjoy practicing. Trust me on that one.
