Snarky Candiru2

Today's strip in which Gordon spouts gibberish at Allyson when he talks to her face to face for the first time is the first of a two-parter in which everything would be cleared up if she'd said "Excuse me, Boy In Trucker Hat....you're kind of in my way."

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Gord stare over the corner at Allyson. Having reminded himself where she is, he asks himself why he's standing there like a creepy creeper who be creeping because he be creepy when he could go over and introduce himself.

Panel 2: He sets up the stupid punchline by reminding himself over and over to say the one simple word "Hi."

Panel 3: When he meets up with her face to face, she says hello to someone in his general direction who may or may not be him.

Panel 4: His response is to stand there with a dumb look on his stupid face and blurt out a nonsense word because (as he would put it) her pretty girl radiation has melted his alleged brain.

Summary: Tune in tomorrow when he sulks and gets angry at her because he misread the situation. Heh. No wonder John thinks of him as the son he shoulda had.....he thinks like a Patterdroid!
