Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 4 March 2017

We end the week with Mike making a snotty comment about how Gayle fills out Elly's clothes better than she does.

(Strip Number 4938, Original Publication Date, 4 March 1988)

Panel 1: When Mike and Lawrence make the scene, Gayle asks them to admire Elly's skills as a hairdresser AND the red sweater she gave her.

Panel 2: Mike and Lawrence approve of the new look that for some reason doesn't last.

Panel 3: Mike sets up the punch-line by asking if that is indeed his mom's red sweater Gayle is wearing.

Panel 4: Elly does a slow burn when Mike says "BOY!....THAT'S how it's supposed to look" within earshot.

Summary: We end the week with Mike holding up a mirror to Elly and Lynn's insecurities. We end the arc with Lizzie getting all kinds of jealous that someone else is being paid attention to.
