Snarky Candiru2

This is where things sort of turn to crap for our heroes; that's because today's strip has their canoe get swamped.

(Strip Number 1061, Original Publication Date, 23 July 1986)

Panel 1: As they head towards Phil's dream spot, he tells John that it's getting pretty choppy out there and they'd better head for shore.

Panel 2: John points out that the shifting wind seems to be blowing them farther away from dry land.

Panel 3: Phil is about to tell John to peddle into the wind because they'll be swamped if the waves get any higher.

Panel 4: He yells "SWAMPED" when they get swamped because the waves got too high.

Summary: If things run true to form, what should be "Sure, he carried all that before no problem but that was because conditions were good" will become "Because he didn't listen to ME, his plane flipped over because he wanted his plane to flip over."
