Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 13 January 2017

We slouch uneasily into the blizzard saga when John gets butt-hurt because Mike wanted to glom onto his stupid tweed cap so as to build a yuppie snowman.

(Strip Number 1406, Original Publication Number, 14 January 1988)

Panel 1: We find John rooting through the closet and asking if anyone's seen his tweed cap.

Panel 2: He's angered when Lizzie narcs on Mike for taking it outside.

Panel 3: When he angrily yanks it off a snowman that's holding a copy of the New Yorker, Mike explains that he ans Lawrence are making a yuppie snowman.

Panel 4: Mike ascribes John's foul temper to their breaking from tradition.

Summary: Actually, it's Mike and the others touching his stuff that bothers him. He gets just as angry when his kids get too near to his stupid-ass toy trains for the same annoying reason.
