Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 6 January 2017

It's "Alleged dumb-ass has a point" day today when John is made to look like a heartless and gutless fool who hates Irene because he's got the common sense God gave an ant and doesn't want to barge in on a domestic dispute like the moron he married.

(Strip Number 4915, Original Publication Date, 7 January 1988)

Panel 1: Later on, Elly says that Irene is better off alone then married to Ted.

Panel 2: John astonishes Elly by saying that since everyone knew about Ted's meetings, he got what he deserved.

Panel 3: She asks John why people saw fit to leave Irene in the dark and help him make a fool of her.

Panel 4: His asking her why she wanted him to ruin their marriage does not satisfy her.

Summary: This is because she's a fragment of a mind that thinks that a whole town loved to humiliate a friend of hers because they didn't feel like making a bad situation worse by interfering.
