Snarky Candiru2

Wednesday, 2 November 2016

Panicky idiot Mike doesn't much like the taste of his own medicine when Elly gives a snappy answer to a stupid question.

(Strip Number 1219, Original Publication Date, 4 November 1987)

Panel 1: Mike can't accept not being able to wash off the food dye because he's gotta go to school tomorrow.

Panel 2: He tells an underwhelmed Elly that he can't go with a green face because he'll die.

Panel 3: He then gets all maudlin when he asks what he's supposed to do to avoid looking ridiculous and getting teased like a boring, ordinary person who deserves it because she's cuter than he is.

Panel 4: When Elly tells him to find a shirt to match, he ain't happy.

Summary: He's his father's son, that's for sure. John doesn't like being the subject of ridicule either because he too thinks that he's the only person whose feelings matter.
