Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 9 February 2015

We begin the two-month long "Elly, Dental Assistant" arc with John being a petulant ass with entirely the wrong idea about 'his "girls."

(Strip Number 4562, Original Publication Date, 10 February 1986)

Panel 1: We find John at the kitchen table complaining that it's been one of THOSE days because his assistant has put in her two weeks' notice.

Panel 2: Sensitivo astonishes Elly by bellowing about how unfair it is that women just up and quit JUST when you get them trained to do what you want.

Panel 3: Rage-Faced Elly just plain drops the cup of coffee she WAS gonna hand him on the table.

Panel 4: As he sits there with scalding hot coffee soaking into his shirt and pants, John thinks that maybe he should have rephrased that.

Summary: Jeez, ya think? It's like this idiot can't remember that his 'girls' aren't trained seals of something.
