Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 28 June 2016

Connie proves herself to be a melodramatic idiot in her own right when she wails about wild animals; this leads to an open invitation to come over to Elly's place so they can both whine about how horrible children are.

(Strip Number 4826, Original Publication Date, 30 June 1987)

Panel 1: A little while later, we find Connie slumped forward in defeat telling her fellow fragile incompetent mother that Molly and Gayle are going to drive her crazy.

Panel 2: She's tried being a mother, a friend and a confidante but she keeps getting shut down.

Panel 3: Since she's not especially aware that she's being used as a human shield, she wails about being in a cage with wild animals with nowhere to turn.

Panel 4: Elly extends an open invitation to Connie to open her front door, turn left and come to her place so they can resume complaining about how evil children are.

Summary: As we'll see tomorrow, there's a good reason that Connie is seen as a wicked monster that selfishly uprooted Molly and Gayle for a selfish and cruel reason. The Connie of 2016 still hasn't figured it out and probably never will but the plain fact is that she is married to that good reason.
