Snarky Candiru2

John makes an observation that makes a nonsense of Phil's claims that his paradise has been untouched by Man.

(Strip Number 4655, Original Publication Date, 21 July 1986)

Panel 1: Now that they're on the lake, Phil tells John "See? What did I tell you? This area is still wilderness!"

Panel 2: He goes on to wax poetic about how it's untouched, unspoiled and unchanged by the hand of Man.

Panel 3: John notices a beer can floating by the canoe.

Panel 4: This causes him to make a sarcastic remark about how some moose just drank a can of Old Vienna.

Summary: Thus endeth the arch commentary about development ruining everything for everybody. Tomorrow, the strip itself takes on the same tone as the notes when it's hinted that John and Phil risked their lives for nothing.
