Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 24 April 2017

We end the Signs Of Spring arc with Rod getting slammed for wanting an impractical car that should neve have been allowed to be built because it can't ferry kids, grub or lumber by the subtle masterstroke of boring people with bad wordplay mocking the leaky roof.

(Strip Number 1282, Original Publication Date, 23 April 1988)

Panel 1: For reason, we see John taking Lizzie for a ride in the formerly yellow and now orange over-compensationmobile and setting up a forced and stupid punchline by putting on the sun roof.

Panel 2: As they drive down the road, Lizzie notices that it's starting to rain.

Panel 3: It starts to rain quite steadily.

Panel 4: Since the sun roof on his some-weather car leaks like a sieve, John is doing a slow burn when Lizzie asks him if their getting soaked is why they're called bucket seats.

Summary: This is because he can anticipate the same arch lecture that we're bound to get in the notes about how only things that please Lynn should be permitted to exist.
