Snarky Candiru2

Sunday, 15 July 2018

For some reason, Farley is being condemned for only 'doing his job' when he can expect praise for it. Said reason appears to be Lynn's hatred for the real dog and the clear love she has for cartoon critters being BFFs.

(Strip Number 6749, Original Publication Date, 16 July 1989)

Panel 1: We start things off with a cat wandering into the garden while Farley sleeps.

Panel 2: As Farley yawns and scratches himself, the cat stares at Elly's bedding plants.

Panel 3: The cat starts digging up Elly's bedding plants for whatever reasons cats have for doing anything. Given Lynn's fear and hatred of housecats, said reason has to be evil because they prowl around her kitchen and have devil eyes and smother infants in the crib and worship Satan and whatever other nonsense she was raised to believe about them.

Panel 4: Both the cat and Farley are surprised when Elly slams the door as she heads out into the garden.

Panel 5: Farley barks angrily at the frightened cat.

Panel 6: As Elly watches, he chases the kitty away.

Panel 7: Elly praises him for defending the house against the fauna of Gehenna and pats him on the head.

Panel 8: Farley watches as Elly goes back inside.

Panel 9: Once the coast is clear, Farley goes back to sleep and the kitty goes back to trying to bury one of its turds in Elly's garden.

Summary: Since Lynn talks about muses and dead comedians, she's not going to admit to lifting a Ralph Wolf/Sam Sheepdog cartoon clean. The only thing missing is Farley and the cat clocking out at the end of their shift.

This year, even Lynn Johnston noticed, or rather I think webmaster Stephanie noticed that we always notice:


These take up a lot of space so we will discuss after the cut
