For Better Or Foreshadowing

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Lynn Johnston, winner of the 2005 Subtle As A Chainsaw Award for the most egregious and heavy-handed display of foreshadowing since "God himself could not sink this ship, nyer nyer nyer!!!"

And she accomplishes it in such a... ARGH ARGH ARGH. There's like a zillion ways to reveal that policeman's name for the punchline (look at all the space she had in the second panel!) and she picked the absolute worst one.

Next week I fully expect her to draw the policeman with an arrow pointing to him that says "HEY I THINK HE'LL BECOME ROMANTICALLY ENTANGLED WITH ELIZABETH, WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?"

Ah, spleen, thou hast been full-vented.
