Bemused Candiru

Sunday, 4 February 2018

Lynn seems to be trying to actually tie the Sundayverse to the Dailyverse today when Elly tales too long telling John that he put the garbage out on the wrong day.

(Strip Number 7266, Original Publication Date, 5 March 1989)

Panel 1: We start things off with John making a concerned "Umph?" noise as he looks at his alarm clock.

Panel 2: A panicked John puts on his robe for some reason.

Panel 3: John rushes to the curb carrying a full garbage bag in each hand because he thinks he's slept through garbage pick-up and hopes that they're slow today.

Panel 4: He rushes back to get a second load of garbage.

Panel 5: As he carries the second load to the curb, he's horrified because someone else's moronic dogs are tearing up the bags of Load One to get to table scraps.

Panel 6: John curses under his breath as he picks the garbage pack up.

Panel 7: John's rage at the dogs other irresponsible imbecile pet owners let roam at large is interrupted by Elly hating to have to tell him something.

Panel 8: He looks like a casserole that fell in on itself when she explains that what she hates to tell him is that they don't come for the garbage for another day.

Summary: You'll no doubt have noticed that this one is from March 1989; we're going to have to deal with strips shuffled crazily all over the place in order that Mike might be a terrible boyfriend on Valentine's Day. Oddly enough, this is actually a bit more coherent and it's likely that it was done at the same time as next week's arc.
