Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 2 September 2014

John freaks out as if someone were threatening to take his toys away when Elly explains that neither of them have secrets from Connie.

(Strip Number 931, Original Publication Date, 3 September 1985)

Panel 1: Elly tells Never-had-a-friend-in-his-life John that he can't possibly know what Connie meant to her.

Panel 2: She then explains that a BFF is someone very dear with whom one can share intimate secrets.

Panel 3: She then sighs and says that she told her everything.

Panel 4: Panicky Idiot John squeals "EVERYTHING?!?!" as if he has secrets worth keeping.

Summary: We're meant to believe that John is worried because there's knowledge about him that might destroy his reputation. I should think that given the potty fracas, he's worrying about a lasting humiliation that's already taken place.
