Snarky Candiru2

On the bus trip up to camp, Random Jerk Kid decides it's fun to scare the crap out of Dawn and Lizzie by adding some bullshit to explaining the ground rules.

(Strip Number 1322, Original Publication Date, 27 July 1988)

Panel 1: As the bus drives towards camp, the kids sing along to the traditional "let's sing of the violent death of an authority figure because as always-chaotic-evil children, we hate the people trying to end our wickedness" song kids sing along to on long bus rides.

Panel 2: When we look inside the bus, a boy who gets named Patrick in the summaries when Lizzie loses her glasses at the beach identifies Lizzie and Dawn as children who, unlike him, have never gone to Kamp Kawkawa.

Panel 3: He explains that they put you six to a cabin and that you must go outside to use the lavatory. He sets up the punchline by saying that it's pretty safe because they only lost two campers last year which makes Lizzie ask how that happened.

Panel 4: Since Bob and the other staffers kept that to themselves and also since he likes to scare people, he scares them when he says that bears ate'em.

Summary: What Lynn tends to not want to face is that her belief that children should be protected from knowing what's going on around them leads to crap like this. Griefers like him fester when people don't get straight answers.
