Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 15 September 2014

Lynn begins an arc in which she decries the folly that is gym class by making a filthy sadist out of the teacher.

(Strip Number 941, Original Publication Date, 16 September 1985)

Panel 1: We find ourselves looking a large, muscle-bound fellow (who we have to wait a month to find out is named Mr Warren) bellowing "Okay, all you lardballs!!! You've had a slack summer an' it's time to toughen up!!" at people he clearly feels deserves nothing but contempt.

Panel 2: The wanna-be DI tells Mike and his friends that they're gonna run around that track three times and any slackers do it all again.

Panel 3: The braying goon then tells them that there's only one thing that they gotta fear more than heat stroke and exhaustion.

Panel 4: He grins malevolently when he tells them that that thing is him.

Summary: While I am not myself fond of the idea of children wasting away in front of a glowing rectangle, I should think that bloated clods who delight in the pain of children like this malicious freak might be an inhibiting factor in the quest to make children want to exercise. Also, we're in for a Lynnsight that alludes to Lynn's need to avenge herself on the evil gym teachers of the world.
