Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 27 September 2013

In today's strip, Elly and Marian agree that lazy husbands who make annoying noise about having been on their feet all day can't seem to see that they need to work just as hard as their wives do at home too.

(Strip Number 715, Original Publication Date, 28 September 1984)

Panel 1: Elly is on the telephone telling her mother that she finally got the kids to help out around the house.

Panel 2: She had to fight, she had to threaten, but she got there in the end.

Panel 3: We shift focus to John sleeping in his recliner drinking beer as Elly tells Marian "Right.. uh huh... over one hurdle and onto the next."

Summary: The good news is that she does indeed clear that hurdle. Too bad that she tears herself down in the process. Ah, well. At least we can expect a Lynnsight about how we gals can never seem to make our hubbies do chores and give us help and time to ourselves. That's something.
