Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 21 August 2018

In her haste to pack away all the things 'they' never use, Georgia is left looking stupid when it's revealed that she actually means that she files away all of the things that she never uses.

(Strip Number 5181, Original Publication Date, 22 August 1989)

Panel 1: When Phil asks her why she's packing so early when they can't have the new house until October, Georgia says that she likes to be what she thinks organized is.

Panel 2: One is left with a chilling feeling of deja vu when Georgia channels Elly by declaring that she knows that she's doing and is packing away only the things that they never use. When Elly says something like that, it means that she doesn't know what she's doing and packing away anything she and she alone doesn't use.

Panel 3: We then see Phil working on a toaster and asking Georgia to get him the Phillips screwdriver.

Panel 4: Georgia is left staring at the boxes trying to figure out which one she packed the screwdriver that she never uses into because it never occurred to her until just that second that 'she' is not 'we'.

Summary: Given that this is why things people want to keep vanish during the moving process, it stands to reason that someone in love with her own perception of genius will, if given an opportunity, claim she invented the idea.
