Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 22 December 2015

Michael uses the VCR as a means of defeating Elly's iron-clad bedtime of keeping children from being underfoot all the time.

(Strip Number 4735, Original Publication Date, 23 December 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Mike pathetically plead with Elly to let him and Lizzie stay up to watch a Christmas special.

Panel 2: She relents despite it getting over at ten thirty after being subjected to more pleading.

Panel 3: She grumbles angrily about how they should air them at a decent hour like 7:30.

Panel 4: What she doesn't know is that Michael taped the special at seven thirty to watch later.

Summary: I wonder what Aaron did to provoke this slam against him. Knowing Lynn's obvious belief that he chooses to be a night owl (because the alternative is her having to admit that bellowing about something he has no control over makes her look like an ugly fool), he had to be publicly shamed for not being able to sleep on command again.

Elly, her nose and why it expanded.

It would seem that someone has prevailed upon Lynn to expand on her biography a little by having her explain certain phenomena. First up is Elly's turnip-like nose and why it got that way.

Simply put, her current theory of "Why I Had To Quit" has little to do with her health and a lot to do with her not having fun make Elly look like an exaggeration of herself. It's only tangentially about how we evil snarkertrolls hounded her from the page by killing happiness and niceness by asking her to plan things out like a MACHINE!!! owing to our evilly being concerned by her not-at-all messed up body image, no, sir, she isn't crippled by it, Elly is just funny, not a representation of how fat and jowly and uuuuugly Lynn has always seen herself as being.
