Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 13 May 2013

We begin the "Library fundraiser at the Pattermanse" arc with a slam against Rod/John's ability to follow a simple recipe. If there are any thoughts, they'll be about how deliberately helpless men are and how that makes more work for WE MOMS.

(Strip Number 4426, Original Publication Date, 14 May 1984)

Panel 1: We find Elly getting ready to go out; she tells John that she'll be late so he'll be alone with the kids for dinner.

Panel 2: She tells him that dinner is mostly ready. All he needs to do is heat the casserole and vegetables and maybe even make a salad.

Panel 3: As she leaves it, John reassures her that he'll do just fine with dinner.

Panel 4: An elated Michael tells Lizzie "Oh, boy! We get to eat out!!"

Summary: Har-de-har, Lynn. We get it. Menfolks is bad with cookin' because they wanna make more work for their pooooooooor put-upon wives.
