Snarky Candiru2

Thursday, 22 December 2016

The second new strip tells us that John's idea of getting Mike to take advantage of a bright sunny Christmas vacation day turns out to be shoveling out the driveway all by his lonesome.

(Strip Number 13801, Original Publication Date, 22 December 2016)

Panel 1: As Mike looks out the window, John is insistent on what a beautiful day it is. Mike agrees with this.

Panel 2: He also agrees when John insists that it'd be foolish to waste the day inside when he could be enjoying a pleasant day outside.

Panel 3: He suits up to have a nice day playing with his friends...

Panel 4: ....only to be greeted by a smiling John who hands him a snow shovel so he can learn what work is like he's supposed to.

Summary: If there are notes, we can expect the usual self-serving and self-pitying twaddle about children usefully spending their energy doing chores and homework all the time instead of wasting even the least little bit of it having social lives and playing. And it's not like Lynn, John, Elly or the assholes that blurble about her lovely column are tyrannical. Children can play and have social lives.....when they're in their sixties and have paid Mommy and Daddy back for the trouble of feeding, clothing and housing them.
