Snarky Candiru2

Thursday, 26 February 2015

John's stupid-ass attempt to wise-ass his way into reassuring Elly about her worries falls as flat as all of his other attempts to make light of a situation.

(Strip Number 4572, Original Publication Date, 27 February 1986)

Panel 1: Now that we're at the clinic, Elly restates that she's really unsure about how sound John's plan is.

Panel 2: After all, it's been years since she's mixed amalgam, dealt with dental instruments or developed X-rays.

Panel 3: He tries to reassure her by insisting that his patients will be calm and understanding.

Panel 4: He then enrages Elly (and reminds me of why I wish they'd chop the fourth panel off a lot of strips) by making an asinine comment about how he'll tell them that the klutz is his wife.

Summary: I should think that we're back dealing with Lynn getting her panties in a bunch about being told to get her head in the game back when he was starting out. I mean, it ain't as if she's going to whine about the horrible people in Winnipeg who insisted that she have a degree or anything because she doesn't pay attention to stuff like that.
