Snarky Candiru2

Wondeful Greg wonderfully dismisses women as talking about nothing of any great import because they care more about non-issues about 'how are they being treated' or 'why is my child so upset' and not earth-shaking questions like 'which group of steroid monstrosities is going to win a pointless championship game.'

(Strip Number 4745, Original Publication Date, 12 January 1987)

Panel 1: As Connie and Elly talk about how awful it is that children have free will, John asks Greg what they're talking about. Wonderful Man Greg wonderfully says 'us.'

Panel 2: According to him, men are all women have to talk about. They criticize them, compare them, analyze them and argue about them. This means that Greg is channeling your bog-standard Hollywood script writer.

Panel 3: They both agree that this differentiates them from men who talk about matters of substance instead of the trivia mindless gals gabble about.

Panel 4: One such topic is who's going to win the Stanley Cup.

Summary: Since Greg and John are clods, they probably can't see the lecture about how fatuous and irrelevant sports are coming. Since Lynn is also a clod, she can't see my comment about white male privilege in full rancid flower coming either.
