Snarky Candiru2

We end this section of the Phil and Georgia buy a house saga with Elizabeth using baby talk to point out that she likes the superficial appearance of their new house.

(Strip Number 5176, Original Publication Date, 12 August 1989)

Panel 1: For some reason, Phil, Georgia and Elly have decided to indulge Liz's need to look at the new house. As they arrive, she gets all happy and giddy when she asks Auntie Georgia if this is their new house because it's perfect.

Panel 2: Georgia asks her how she can know this when she hasn't even looked inside.

Panel 3: As we see the convivial-looking exterior (which is only vaguely face-like), Liz turns into what someone who isn't really familiar with how small children actually speak thinks a child sounds like and tells her that it has a nice face.

Summary: What Liz doesn't get is that one must consider the faces inside the houses with nice faces. One asshole with a yapping mongrel kept outside all damned night long to go crazy so his owner can scare off thieves can wreck a neighbourhood. In any event, next week, we get a week of Ritual Aaron Castigation as he's chastised for channeling a remora.
