Snarky Candiru2

Good Friday 2018

It would appear that part of the point of the arc is for Lynn to castigate some hair stylist she seems to believe lacked dedication to her craft because she didn't have a pole up her arse.

(Strip Number 1433, Original Publication Date, 31 March 1989)

Panel 1: Having made note of her new client's trepidation, Marie the Stylist tells Elly that if she wants a change that's not too great, a perm to give her hair body is the way to go.

Panel 2: She then tells Elly not to worry because she's got the time and she'll give the job her undivided attention.

Panel 3: Elly assents.

Panel 4: When she tells an unseen co-worker named Bambi to bring her a sandwich and coke because she's working through lunch hour, Elly is aghast.

Summary: Given Lynn's need to never actually say anything direct to someone who bugs her, I wonder what the person who thought that the Johnston woman actually liked her thought when she saw this. I wonder how much I hate Lynn for caring. I wonder why it was so damned easy to give the woman a bog-standard stripper name.
