Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 20 August 2016

We put a punctuation mark on the Phil's wedding arc with a reminder that Elly seems to have neglected to properly explain to Lizzie what 'forsaking all others' and 'let no man put asunder' might mean.

(Strip Number 1195, Original Publication Date, 22 August 1987)

Panel 1: As he and Marian head out, Lizzie asks Jim if they're leaving already.

Panel 2: As he closes the trunk of his car, he reminds her that they came out for Uncle Phil's wedding and now that it's done, they're going home.

Panel 3: They hug as she agrees with Jim when he says that they've had a wonderful time.

Panel 4: Jim and Marian go into input failure when Lizzie says that maybe her uncle will get married again one day.

Summary: This would probably occasion a Panel 5 in which Elly is put on the spot for not properly explaining what a wedding ceremony is supposed to mean. Also, I remember an old Pogo in which Miz Beaver told Mamselle Hepzibah that you don't get married every day. Her response was to state it was a bad habit to get into.
