Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 27 July 2013

We end the week with Jim channeling Red Green; this is because he doesn't want to admit that at least three other people think that his secret fishing spot is also their secret fishing spot.

(Strip Number 667, Original Publication Date, 28 July 1984)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we switch from Elly being a sucky parent to Jim taking Mike fishing. He tells Mike that the secluded-looking stretch of the BC coast they're in is his own secret fishing hole.

Panel 2: He then states he's never told anyone else about it so it's just him and Mike who know about it.

Panel 3: Mike points out that there are three boats on the water besides their own.

Panel 4: Rather than admit the obvious, Jim tries to save face by saying that they must have been followed.

Summary: He has a good chance of convincing Mike because a nine year old isn't going to realize that every other fisherman is saying much the same thing.
