Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 16 January 2017

For some stupid reason or another, John likes to ambush Elly just to see her jump.

(Strip Number 10924, Original Publication Date, 16 January 1988)

Panel 1: A shivering, miserable John comes inside from the cold.

Panel 2: As he tries to warm himself, he spies Elly getting something out of the cupboard.

Panel 3: When he puts his cold hands on Elly's waist, she screams in panic.

Panel 4: As she glares at him, he thought-bubbles "Reach out and touch the ones you love."

Summary: I have no real idea what the point of this is other than to remind us that John can be a bit of a dick. This is because it seems as if he's trying to punish her for being warm and comfortable or something like that there.
