Snarky Candiru2

Despite Elly's belief otherwise, Connie is on to something when she says that men like John are always anxious to prove how virile they are.

(Strip Number 4902, Original Publication Date, 11 December 1987)

Panel 1: We find ourselves in the kitchen watching Connie watch Elly moaning in despair because John bought the evil car of actually enjoying himself for a god-damned change.

Panel 2: She asks her why a rational man like John would make a stupid and wrong decision like buying an evil car that makes him feel alive when good men buy station wagons of soullessly marching to the grave without a murmur of dissent like she would. Connie says it's rather simple.

Panel 3: She says that for reasons that are evil and built to ruin the lives of busy women, men have the evil urge to prove their virility. Elly tells her to stop being ridiculous.

Panel 4: Elly is the ridiculous one when John asks her to see the new baby.

Summary: Well, howtheduck was right about that, right? Lynn hates the idea of men still wanting to feel like men.

CBC of Lynn Johnston in Whitehorse

Lynn was in Whitehorse doing book signing, 2 workshops and a school visit. CBC managed to do a report on it, which implies that Lynn's visit might have been set up long enough in advance for CBC to send a reporter to one of the workshops. This is the news report which has text and a video.

As usual, I will quote the text and then comment on it after the cut.
