Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 13 May 2016

John and Mark come right and whine about the horror of feeling awkward and vulnerable to unimpressed spouses who remember how God-damned long it takes to look 'perfect'.

(Strip Number 1154, Original Publication Date, 15 May 1987)

Panel 1: A few minutes later, the instructor tells the class to take a fifteen minute break.

Panel 2: This pleases John because he hated this. Elly tries to remind him of how fun it was to be a carefree teenager.

Panel 3: Jean's baby-man husband tells her that it's easy for her to say because all she had to do was sit around and wait for a guy to make the first move.

Panel 4: When John bleats about the horror of dying from embarrassment and risking rejection, Elly has enough of the smell of soiled baby-diaper and asks Jean if she cares to dance.

Summary: I wonder what the Hell Rod did to make John into an itty-bitty baby crying for MAMA because he wasn't a social lion. Perhaps this is a revenge kill for starting a new practice.
