Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 3 February 2015

We come to the home stretch of the overly-long visit from Elly's parents arc when Marian shows Mike a neat way to wake Jim.

(Strip Number 1015, Original Publication Date, 4 February 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Mike asking Grandma Marian what she's dooin' aside from making a plate of bacon an'eggs. She tells him that she's waking up Grandpa.

Panel 2: As a confused Mike watches, she flap-flap-flaps her apron to somehow waft the smell of the perk-perking coffee and sizzling bacon and eggs upstairs.

Panel 3: We next see Jim being awoken after sniff-sneeeeeeeeeefffing the air and finding it delicious.

Panel 4: When an enthusiastic Jim shows up ready to eat, Mike declares it to be awesome.

Summary: What isn't awesome is the inevitable Little Lindy show we'll end up having to read that says this is the truth, this happened and so on and so forth.
