Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 3 January 2014

The "Mike and Lizzie poke through the wreckage arc" has Lynn make a waspish comment about smoking.

(Strip Number 4462, Original Publication Date, 3 January 1985)

Panel 1: As he goes poking through the ashtray, Mike's eyes light up when he finds an intact cigar.

Panel 2: In spite of Lizzie's protests, Mike lights up one end up.

Panel 3: After comparing the stench to Uncle Danny's pig barn, Lizzie asks why anyone would want to smoke one of those things.

Panel 4: Mike doesn't know but speculates that maybe they just wanna be noticed.

Summary: We're probably going to get a lecture about the evils of tobacco, evils of the stench and the evils of the grandfather who loved a good stogie.
