Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 13 May 2017

We end the week with Annie saying something that makes a lot of sense to people like us but would clearly be taken as an admission of defeat by Lynn's restless and angry target demographic.

(Strip Number 1293, Original Publication Date, 13 May 1988)

Panel 1: Anne tells Elly that unlike her, she's stopped worrying about her shape.

Panel 2: She's tried exercise and dieting and what we see is what we get and Elly or anyone else doesn't like the way she looks, that's tough.

Panel 3: We can't be what we're not and our shapes are as individual as fingerprints. Besides, it's the person inside that really matters anyway.

Panel 4: She then makes a self-effacing comment about how she wishes that she was this smart when she was fourteen and needed to know this.

Summary: The problem with this strip is two-fold. Not only does it go in one ear and out the other, said process is accelerated by Trash Bag Johnny repeating a stupid and hateful crack his arsebucket grandfather made.
