Snarky Candiru2

For some reason or other, the demand at the yard sale exceeds supply; Elly's reaction is to not close up early like a normal person but to raid the house for 'junk' to sell. Since Elly thinks that anything that she doesn't like is junk, she tries to steamroll John into selling the ultra-ugly checked pants he's wearing.

(Strip Number 4431, Original Publication Date, 23 May 1984)

Panel 1: Monique tells Elly that they are running out of stuff and still have another hour before they close.

Panel 2: Elly runs into the house to find more stuff to sell.

Panel 3: As Elizabeth clutches her toy Bunny to protect it from the claw machine Elly has turned into, John asks her what she means by telling him to take off his pants.

Summary: This seems a lot like something out of a sitcom; that's because in my experience, people who run out of things to sell at one of these things close up shop when the last item is sold.

You're traveling to another dimension (But only until you get all that adventure out of your system. Then it's back to your hometown.) Another dimension not only of flapping and honking, but of SNORF CHEW CHOMP GLUGG GLUGG GLUPPP!!! A journey into a boring, suburban town whose boundaries are only that of its author's limited 1950s point of view.
