Snarky Candiru2

Sunday, 2 November 2014

We end the Halloween arc with Lizzie deliberately goading Mike so that Lynn might beat us over the the head with an insane rant about how yes, Alan did spend his days plotting the ruin of his older sister.

(Strip Number 7206, Original Publication Date, 3 November 1985)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Mike upend his treat bag only to have a single lolly-pop drop out.

Panel 2: Lizzie helpfully points out which way the strip is going by telling him to lookit the great stuff she gots in dere.

Panel 3: As he puts the piece of candy he hasn't gobbled down in the bag, he tries to be indifferent to her reminder that she's got more candy left.

Panel 4: He also tries to no-sell her reminder that she didn't wolf her candy down as if she were somehow denied candy on a regular basis by a crazy woman.

Panel 5: He even tries to be uninterested in her laundry list of stuff she's still got.

Panel 6: Recognizing that she's trying to start something that ends with him being yelled at for picking on his poor, defenseless sister and being slapped on the ass for lying about her starting it, he doesn't especially want to fall for her 'wanna see whats I gots' thing.

Panel 7: He even tries to resist a second attempt.

Panel 8: He snaps when she Pattersnarfs because he is still hungry for the candy that he kinda loves.

Panel 9: He yells incoherently and grabs a handful of her candy.

Panel 10: As she smiles in expectation of being able to cry crocodile tears and fool her imbecile mother into believing that she had nothing to do with anything, Lizzie is relieved that she hasn't lost her touch.

Summary: This, I should think, is obviously going to be a Little Lindy show about how Alan came out of the womb planning to destroy her because younger siblings are evil usurpers that get away with more. As the youngest of the family, I kinda God-damned hate whiny bitch older siblings squealing with rage because they have to actually God-damned share things.
