Snarky Candiru2

Sunday, 25 August 2013

Today's strip is yet another attempt by Lynn to make a point about how soldiers can be likened to naive children who don't realize how bad war is. Sadly, it not only follows her general pattern of making Mike look like a ghoul instead of an innocent. It also follows her pattern of revealing herself to be an utter imbecile.

(Strip Number 7165, Original Publication Date, 26 August 1984)

Panel 1: We start things off with Lawrence telling Mike that a couple of kids have moved down the street and inviting him to check them out.

Panel 2: Mike says that he'll do so as soon as he gets the Toy Gun Of Horrifying Elly™.

Panel 3: We find Mike, Lawrence, Darryl and the boys I'll call Willy and Dave pretending that they're in a war movie.

Panel 4: Michael tells Darryl to go somewhere so that he can pretend to ambush him.

Panel 5: Darryl then proceeds to get the drop on Lawrence.

Panel 6: Mike and Lawrence respond to Darryl's pretendin'he got a flamethrower by pretendin'they got grenades.

Panel 7: Mike next wants to pretend that he and Lawrence are pinned down an'gotta shoot their way out with machine guns.

Panel 8: As they have fun playing war, Mike and Lawrence agree that real soljers sure are lucky.

Panel 9: After all, they get to play this neat game fer REAL!!!

Summary: Sadly, we're about to be reminded that Stupid Lynn's stupid childhood is stupid as she drones on about how she never understood what Death was or how horrible war is until she was about twenty or so; said statement concludes with her likening soldiers to the idiot children from Apaches who don't know what death is.
