Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 5 August 2013

We start off the home stretch of the "Exile To Vancouver" arc with Mike making a greeting-card sentiment about homesickness.

(Strip Number 4438, Original Publication Date, 6 August 1984)

Panel 1: As Marian tucks Mike and SuperTeddy in for the night, she points out that he's been away from home for quite a while and asks him if he is getting homesick.

Panel 2: Mike's response is to say "Um, maybe. I don't think I miss home so much."

Panel 3: He then says that while he doesn't miss the building, he does miss the people in it.

Summary: As we saw last Monday, Lynn does like to have small children weigh in with this sort of platitude. Eventually, someone will think that prayer and prairie mean much the same thing.
