Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 4 January 2014

We end the week with Mike setting off the smoke alarm.

(Strip Number 777, Original Publication Date, 4 January 1985)

Panel 1: We shift focus to the master bedroom where Elly has been awoken by the smell of something burning.

Panel 2: As the smoke alarm wails away, she tells zombified John to wake up.

Panel 3: Since he's still half in the bag from last night, he things that the alarm bell is his own head ringing.

Panel 4: When she tells him that it's the smoke detector, he's out of bed like a shot.

Summary: We find out Monday that Mike put the cigar in the trash like an idiot. This leads indirectly to another act of idiocy: Farley getting loose again.
