Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 10 June 2017

We finally find out why Elly's cooking is terrible today when it's revealed that the appliances John thinks don't require maintenance needed to be replaced an Elizabeth ago.

(Strip Number 1299, Original Publication Date, 10 June 1988)

Panel 1: Upon returning home, we find John asking Elly what the blackened mess he thinks of when he thinks of her cooking happens to be.

Panel 2: The indigestible meal is something she calls blackened meatloaf.

Panel 3: He sets up the punchline by asking if it's something made with Cajun spices; it isn't.

Panel 4: When told it's something you make when your oven only works on broil, John is too damned confused to function because it looks to him as if she is actually needs a new kitchen after all.

Summary: Given notes that indicate that Lynn seems to have thought "He can have his toys as long as he spends money on something practical that I can show off", we can expect more of this sort of crap as the years go on.
