Snarky Candiru2

Thursday, 9 March 2017

Since Mike is a jerk who believes John when he blames crazy woman hormones for Elly's reluctance to picking up after him, her attempt to tie earning his allowance to picking up his room has like no effect at all on him. Since Elly is stupid, this comes as yet another shock.

(Strip Number 1260, Original Publication Date, 9 March 1988)

Panel 1: As she types an article for the paper, Elly no-sells Mike when he asks for a dollar.

Panel 2: He irritates her when he promises to pay her back out of his allowance in much the same whining, entitled tone Phil uses when he wants to smoke up the place like a dick.

Panel 3: Since he ain't picked up a damned thing off of his floor in two weeks, she asks him "What allowance?" when she reminds him that he ain't done thing one to earn spending cash. His meekly muttering "Oh" should end things but it doesn't.

Panel 4: When he asks for an advance on his inheritance instead, Elly is gobsmacked.

Summary: This is because she's rather easily overwhelmed and thus would of course regard this sitcom punch-line as bafflingly clever instead of nauseatingly obvious.

We Asked Lynn: 3 Interview Questions

First of all, I would like to point out I see a ring on Lynn's left hand in this picture and it makes me very suspicious considering some of things Lynn says in response to these questions. The caption for the picture is "Lynn Laughing", but it looks more like she is about to have a seizure.

As usual, I will quote the material and then comment on it after the cut.
