Snarky Candiru2

We shift focus to the boys' cabin so that a sagging mattress and a fat kid can lead to both a joke at Mike's expense and an opportunity for Lynn to bray witlessly about consumer electronics.

(Strip Number 1323, Original Publication Date, 29 July 1988)

Panel 1: We switch focus to Mike's cabin so that Bob can tell the guys to flip for top bunk and if anyone wants to change stuff around, he can do so next week.

Panel 2: A fat kid with glasses I'll name Arnie Feldman crows about winning the coin toss and getting the bunk over Mike.

Panel 3: Since he's still kind of sore about the whole business with Mike's big box of getting him yelled at, Brian is really digging noticing how Mike is worried that the sagging mattress overhead will just give way causing Arnie to squish him and asks if he can have his MP3 player (in 1988, it was his Walkman) if something happens to to him.

Summary: Again, Lynn will probably ignore how she's making Lizzie have a great time while taking a creamy dump all over Michael to rant about evil machines of playing headache music and tuning out her helpful advice that isn't corrosive, demeaning nagging that presumes that the victim is a chaos-loving monster who hates the love in Elly's great big heart.
