Snarky Candiru2

Sunday, 9 October 2016

It's time to play "What did Rod do to antagonize Lynn this time?"; that's because we have a symphony in the key of Thoughtless Buffoon John forgetting to put the seat down on the biffy like a big stupid idiot again.

(Strip Number 6665, Original Publication Date, 11 October 1987)

Panel 1: It's late at night at the Patterson house and for some reason, Elly wakes up with a grunt while giving John the stink-eye.

Panel 2: She stumbles out of the bedroom all groggy-like.

Panel 3: She doesn't bother turning on the hall light as she walks down to wherever she's going.

Panel 4: She closes the door behind her.

Panel 5: We hear a splashing noise for the rather obvious reason of Elly not having a toilet seat under her when she uses the commode.

Panel 6: As Elly flushes the toilet, she screams in rage.

Panel 7: When she gets back to the bedroom, she turns on the light.

Panel 8: She then wallops John with a pillow to punish him for failure.

Panel 9: He then asks her if he left both toilet seats up again.

Summary: I don't know which of these two is the bigger idiot. Is it John for his seemingly endless inability to realize that he's not the only person in the house or Elly for not remembering that she married a slow-witted clod?
