Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 25 September 2017

We end the arc with John acknowledging that yes, Elly's constant nagging comes from a place of love. By the month's end, we'll get a hint that her fear that THAT GIRL is trying to ruin HER BAYBEEEEEEE!!!!!! comes from the same place.

(Strip Number 1349, Original Publication Date, 24 October 1988)

Panel 1: Later that day, Elly asks John what the doctor said. We set up the "Lynn gets her ass in an uproar because he eats fried chicken" arc by his stating that he's got a high cholesterol number.

Panel 2: He then says that he'd have never found that out if she hadn't been insistent on getting him to see a GP.

Panel 3: This causes her to wonder if she nags him a lot. He states that this is not the case.

Panel 4: Reason: he thinks that she loves him a lot.

Summary: Well, this is a nice little ending to an arc. Too bad that howtheduck has to remind us that no matter which end of Mike Martha ends up talking to, she's gonna be talking to an asshole.
