Snarky Candiru2

Wednesday, 8 July 2015

When Richard complains to John about having to bunk with Christopher, the jackass makes an inane, kick-to-the-nads-worthy comment about how being married is no picnic either.

(Strip Number 4648, Original Publication Date, 7 July 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Richard tell John about the downside of all of the baby stuff; said downside is pretty much becoming Barry to Christopher's Curtis.

Panel 2: The reason I compare the two is that Chris hogs the closet, takes his pillow, snores and sleeps with the lights on.

Panel 3: John tries to jolly him into bucking up by saying that it doesn't sound so bad to him.

Panel 4: After all, it's just like being married.

Summary: This is the sort of thing that maketh Rod ask to have John's character toned down as he hated being regarded publicly as an ungrateful asshole. Too bad that the strip is only 'real' when Lynn gets the uncritical praise she needs more than she needs oxygen.
