Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 19 March 2016

Sulking Infant Phil learns to his everlasting horror that Georgia considers putting up with his arrogance, petulance, self-absorption and immaturity optional.

(Strip Number 1124, Original Publication Date, 21 March 1987)

Panel 1: As he sits there puffing away, Georgia asks him WHY he's freaking out over their wedding; after all, they're just going to make what they have now legally binding.

Panel 2: She then says that she can't really force him into something that's clearly this far out of his comfort zone.

Panel 3: She tells him that if he doesn't want to get married to tell her now so she can get on with her life.

Panel 4: Phil's panicky bleat of "WITHOUT ME?!" is because he's shocked to realize she means to do so without him.

Summary: Nothing so focuses a Momma's Boy's mind as the intimation that no, he ain't the axis around which this world rotates. Damned near all of the alleged men in this strip have mother issues and need this sort of humbling.
