Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 29 November 2013

John makes the stupid mistake of informing Elly that she doesn't seem to be getting anywhere with her exercise classes.

(Strip Number 4455, Original Publication Date, 30 November 1984)

Panel 1: We end this arc by John stupidly telling Elly that while she has been doing a lot of exercise, she doesn't seem to be losing weight.

Panel 2: Elly screams WHAT???!!!!!!

Panel 3: She then screams angrily at her stupid filth-foul-filth husband about how he can filth himself right up his foul.

Panel 4: John "apologetically" claims that he's sorry about being honest. Since this is John talking, he's sorry she feels that way about his calling it as he sees it.

Summary: It would seem that Will never took John aside and told him the super-important, character-building and life-saving phrase "When you're already in a hole....for God's sake, STOP DIGGING!!" (Well, that and "Never answer truthfully to any question involving a lady's weight.")
