Snarky Candiru2

John's suffering continues today. This is because Lynn is depicting him as a spoiled brat who can't take a little pain.

(Strip Number 762, Original Publication Date, 12 December 1984)

Panel 1: As the EMTs wheel John to the ambulance, he cannot believe that this is happening to him. He also can't believe that Lizzie is so excited that she wants to call attention to his being humiliated forever.

Panel 2: Since Lizzie is four years old and has been raised specifically to not understand social norms, it's no surprise that she's only too happy to tell everyone ever that Daddy droppeded a great big turkey on his foot so she gets to ride in a ambulance.

Panel 3: John warns Lizzie to not broadcast by being just about to threaten her with physical harm.

Panel 4: Before he can really destroy his reputation by publicly threatening to wring a child's neck to avenge a minor indignity, a younger clerk asks him if he intends paying for his groceries.

Summary: I should think that if there is a Lynnsight today, it'll be all about how Rod is not very good with children at all. If so, it's going to be loads of fun watching a woman who doesn't get kids diss someone else for making the same mistake Lynn makes whe she assumes that her children are her adversaries.
