Snarky Candiru2

Thursday, 13 November 2014

We switch from Ted not realizing that it's Greg's world and he just lives in it to Elly not reacting well to a reminder that she treats Farley with not especially benign neglect.

(Strip Number 4532, Original Publication Date, 14 November 1985)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching a typical situation already in progress as Elly (who isn't looking where she's going) collides with a sleeping Farley.

Panel 2: She then tells him to get out of the road.

Panel 3: As Lizzie looks on, Elly asks why it is that Farley always seems to be in the way.

Panel 4: When Lizzie suggests that he maybe just wants to be noticed, Elly is taken aback because not only was that not the answer she wanted to hear, she never expected someone to answer her in the first place.

Summary: The answer Elly would have preferred to hear is that Farley is a furry lump who exists to make her life hard because dogs are stupid and insist on not being people in suits like they should.
