Snarky Candiru2

We get another reminder that Lizzie is not very coordinated when holding a soda and hot dog at the same time proves to be too much for her.

(Strip Number 1273, Original Publication Date, 29 March 1988)

Panel 1: We find ourselves at the arena watching John and Lizzie walk back from the concession stand. As he apologizes to the people he's walking past, John is rather insistent about Lizzie not spilling her soda.

Panel 2: Since she doesn't seem to be listening, he repeats his command to keep the lid on the drink. (Notice that he's got a bunch of cups stacked like a boob instead of putting them in a cup holder like a normal person. This is unintentionally exculpatory.)

Panel 3: Having noticed that she seems to be changing directions instead of immediately obeying him, John asks Lizzie where she's going.

Panel 4: John gets all gobsmacked because she says that she dropped her hot dog somewhere on the third row.

Summary: This means that Lizzie is going to catch all kinds of shit because the moron with the glasses doesn't know about cup holders. This might as well be another in our "Defining John" series as it points out that he brings most of his trouble with the kids on himself.
