Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 30 April 2018

We begin a week in which we're beaten over the head with the idea that evil men MAKE women anxious about their looks by having Liz celebrate the joys of jumping into mud puddles like an idiot because she isn't actively engaged in getting engaged.

(Strip Number 5118, Original Publication Date, 1 May 1989)à

Panel 1: We start things off with Liz jumping into a puddle with a mighty splash.

Panel 2: She then stomps around in it and causes pop art captions to materialize out of thin air.

Panel 3: We see more of this stomping-captioning thing.

Panel 4: As she walks away smiling, she thoughtbubbles "I came. I saw. I stomped in it!"

Summary: We might get notes about the baffling love kids have for dirt but given how the week ends, I think that the real take-away is that since Liz isn't worrying about boys, she's free. Once worrying about them becomes part of her life, she's finished.
