Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 22 March 2014

We end the week with Elly being warned that one of the people at the conference is a dirty old man.

(Strip Number 4484, Original Publication Date, 23 March 1985)

Panel 1: In today's strip, Elly finally checks in at the Puppets with a Purpose workshop. As she is about to be given her name tag, we see her sandwiched between a short old man in glasses and a tall, bespectacled woman in a rust-brown dress.

Panel 2: As Rust-Brown Wearing Bespectacled Woman looks on in disgust, Canadian Hans Moleman leans down to read Elly's name tag. Since he's probably actually really nearsighted, he ends up nearly putting his nose in her dress so he can greet her by name.

Panel 3: As Mister Magoo Lite walks out of the strip, Librarian Stereotype Number Three whispers to Elly that she doesn't think he's really nearsighted.

Summary: I sure hope that we don't get an anecdote about Slobbering Old Perverts Lynn Has Known. I'd much rather have a "sisterhood is powerful" thing...or at least an explanation of what the hairy heck Claire's deal is.
