Cynical Candiru

Wednesday, 2 May 2018

For some reason, it's funny that Liz lacks common sense or an understanding of telephone etiquette if it inconveniences Mike.

(Strip Number 5120, Originnal Publication Date, 3 May 1989)

Panel 1: As Mike makes himself a sandwich, Liz answers the phone.

Panel 2: He looks on with a neutral expression as she talks to the person on the phone because he doesn't know who it is.

Panel 3: As he reads an issue of Nacho Man comics, she says goodbye to the person and hangs up the phone.

Panel 4: When she cheerfully tells him that it was for him, Mike looks as if he'd been hit on the back of the head with a sledge-hammer because he knows that he's going to be deep in shit when he tries explaining what Liz did wrong.

Summary: I wonder how dismissive Lynn got when Katie pointed out that people at school thought that she actually was this motherfucking dumb.
