Snarky Candiru2

Now that the sale is over, John makes another foolish mistake when he asks Elly what she intends doing with all the space she cleared. Since he has no idea who he married, he's blindsided by her very predictable desire to fill the empty space with new junk.

(Strip Number 617, Original Publication Date, 26 May 1984)

Panel 1: As he and Elly look around the living room, John compliments her on clearing out the house.

Panel 2: That's because getting rid of all of their surplus possessions have given them more storage space.

Panel 3: He then asks her what she plans on doing with all the extra room.

Panel 4: She makes that stupid palms out gesture, smiles and says "Fill it with more junk!" Since he's an idiot who doesn't remember who he married, this astonishes him.

Summary: This is because Elly seems like she should probably be on one of those shows about compulsive hoarding.
