Snarky Candiru2

For some stupid reason, Elly's sorting through old photos lead Mike to make a snotty fat joke that would have gotten him a good ass-kicking in my house.

(Strip Number 4801, Original Publication Date, 8 May 1987)

Panel 1: As he leans over her shoulder, Mike asks Elly what she's doing; she tells him that she's sorting photographs.

Panel 2: She then says that she thought it would be a good idea to sort them into albums by chronological order.

Panel 3: Having come upon a photo she can't place, she asks herself when it was taken; Mike says that it must have been a long time ago.

Panel 4: She isn't impressed by his snotty comment about her being thin.

Summary: Well, there's a damned good reason she was more slender in that photo: it was before she passed a squalling rutabaga out of her nethers that currently looks like Evil Linus Van Pelt.
