Snarky Candiru2

For some stupid reason or another, Lynn needs to mock Aaron's efforts to look cool.

(Strip Number 1407, Original Publication Date, 18 January 1988)

Panel 1: Since Lynn needs to spoon-fed an audience she believes to consist of lead-poisoned idiots who are easily impressed, Mike's drying his hair after his morning shower is indicated by multiple instances of the word 'dry' floating over him so we'll know that he's not playing freeze tag with a towel over his head.

Panel 2: This is also why we have multiple instances of the word 'gel' as he tries to tame his hair.

Panel 3: It's also why we don't just see him style his hair but have to be 'told' he is.

Panel 4: Finally, it's why we see the word WHAP!! a lot of times when he's punished for being a big shot by having someone fire off a bunch of snowballs at the back of his head.

Summary: She doesn't do it a lot but Lynn loves to make fun of Aaron for trying to impress girls his age. The next time, that bearded road-apple at that damned farm wonders who he thinks he's impressing.
