Snarky Candiru2

Sunday, 6 December 2015

In today's installment of the "Let's Slam Rod Show", we're told that John has a rather poor singing voice and likes to share it.

(Strip Number 7232, Original Publication Date, 7 December 1986)

Panel 1: We find John in the shower of an evening adjusting the temperature of the water.

Panel 2: He sighs in relief when he gets it just right.

Panel 3: He sets up the end joke by starting to sing "And Oi said, my pretty Kathleen, Oi'll take ye fer my woife....

Panel 4: ...we'll live'appily t'rest of our sweet loife...

Panel 5: she said Oi'll ask me mother an'tamorry Oi'll let ya knowwwwww...."

Panel 6: Panicky Idiot Elly listens in as he sings "And Oi met her in the garden where the praities...."

Panel 7: When he howls "GROOOWWWWWWWW" off-key, she opens the door.

Panel 8: She opens the shower curtain to find him happily singing gibberish.

Panel 9: As Traumatized Elly exits the washroom after seeing him in the skin, she says that she's glad he was just singing really bad.

Panel 10: This is because she thought his off-key caterwauling meant that he was in severe pain.

Summary: I wonder who's getting slammed today. Probably Rod. He probably likes to sing and super-fragile Lynn probably can't take the disruption.
