Snarky Candiru2

Thursday, 21 January 2016: Drop dead and give me twenty, Phil.

Phil's wounded animal act because he's gotta smoke outside because Elly is master in her own damned house elicits unwarranted sympathy from her idiot son.

(Strip Number 4750, Original Publication Date, 22 January 1987)

Panel 1: Michael asks Elly why Phil is outside. She explains that he's smoking.

Panel 2: She responds to his angry beefing and says that she's not a militant anti-smoker, she just doesn't want it in her house.

Panel 3: Michael looks at Phil freezing in the blowing winter snow looking all pathetic because he can't push Elly into doing what he wants like the spoiled punk-ass bitch brat he is.

Panel 4: Since Mike has a brain that remembers that Elly reacts to anything she doesn't like by kicking it outside, he tells her to face the fact that she is militant.

Summary: As I implied yesterday, Phil represents how Alan seems to have accepted the societal change that forces him outside with little grace. He's my kind and I know how stubborn we can get when we feel slighted so this injured animal act doesn't surprise me in the least.
