Snarky Candiru2

Today's strip has Marian and Elly be mildly confused by yet another reminder that John thinks mostly with his stomach.

(Strip Number 1194, Original Publication Date, 21 August 1987)

Panel 1: As she gets ready to head out to her and Jim's reunion, Marian tells Elly that she's made them pies, rolls, three kinds of cookies and two cakes.

Panel 2: This means that the family will have things to enjoy long after she leaves.

Panel 3: Elly tells Marian that she wants her to know how much the family will appreciate this.

Panel 4: Elly and Marian are mildly perplexed when John says they'll think of her every time they look at the freezer.

Summary: They really shouldn't be. This is because they should be well aware of his being really weird when he tries to pay someone a compliment as well as his not realizing when he's said something stupid like this.
