Snarky Candiru2

Saint Patrick's Day 2020

The one that appears to have the function of establishing that for the next little while, the daily strips all take place on the first day of April.

(Original Publication Date, 18 March 1991)

Panel 1: As she and Mike walk to the bus stop, he tells her to lookit the bug. He hasn't seen a bug outside in months.

Panel 2: When she asks what kind of bug, he describes it as being totally gross with at least fifty hairy legs. It's gotta be the most disgusting bug he's ever seen.

Panel 3: Since she forgets what a repellent piece of garbage Ugly In Spirit Brother is, she makes the mistake of asking where it is.

Panel 4: Since Meredith and Robin will have to arrange to cremate a moron who was incapable of seeing anyone aside from himself as real one day, Mike delightedly pops the damn thing down her shirt and says "RIGHT HERE!!!"; this has the 'wonderful' effect of frightening her so much, she drops her sheaf of paper.

Summary: We get to see why he pulls shit like this when he dismisses the very idea that she has feelings. He can't see anyone else as being as real as he is and tends to assume that everyone in sight is an actor trying to manipulate him. I blame television and being a prick.
