Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 30 August 2014

We end the week with Lynn using Annie as a stand-in for the stupid and useless housewives of Corbeil who think that they can waltz and interrupt her as if she's one of them or something.

(Strip Number 929, Original Publication Date, 31 August 1985)

Panel 1: We start things off with Annie showing up with her demon spawn and asking if they can come in.

Panel 2: In response to an off-screen conversation, she tells Christopher Lizzie's not there to play with because she's in kindergarten.

Panel 3: As Elly tries to type something up, Annie sits there and drinking coffee and tells her that she really envies her the time alone she's got now.

Panel 4: As her destructive, unsupervised brats tear the place apart, Bovine Idiot Annie™ tells an infuriated Elly that you can get a lot done without kids around.

Summary: The unspoken punchline is that Elly would be getting things done if that idiot Annie didn't think she could just barge in with her horrible kids whenever she felt like it; this is because Lynn is sending a message to the useless, husband-dominated idiot women of Corbeil who can't see that her work is important: "Stay the BOXCAR away from me during the day".
