Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 28 March 2017

Elly proves herself to be a Foob of very little brain by actually telling Mike to his face that she lives to see the end of hockey season.

(Strip Number 4944, Original Publication Date, 28 March 1988)

Panel 1: As he suits up for tonight's game, Mike says that he hopes he wins because he wants this to be the best game of the season.

Panel 2: Elly comes along and says that it doesn't matter if he does win because it'll be the best game of the season, win or lose.

Panel 3: He asks her why.

Panel 4: She grins a manic grin and says that it's because it's the last game of the season.

Summary: This excess of candor on her part is a root cause of something she doesn't like or understand: her children's inability to trust her to look out for them.
