Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 1 October 2016

We begin a micro-arc in which Richard narcs on Lizzie for playing instead of spending all of her time picking things up by having him say that ratting people out is his thing.

(Strip Number 1207, Original Publication Date, 3 October 1987)

Panel 1: Now that he's here, Elly asks Richard what he wants to say.

Panel 2: What he wants to say is that Lizzie is off playing in the park despite the fact that she couldn't until she'd picked up all the toys in the yard first.

Panel 3: While she's grateful to have ammunition in her campaign to break her children, she doesn't like children who tattle and more or less calls him out on it.

Panel 4: He shrugs and says that it's a living.

Summary: Thus begins a week of Elly screaming about how her children want to enslave her and Liz not getting along with Richard.
