(Strip Number 379, Original Publication Date, 19 March 1983)
Panel 1: We find John in front of the bathroom mirror whining to Elly that he's got lines around his eyes and his cheeks are sunken.
Panel 2: He then looks at the greaseburger-induced paunch, tells her that he's getting old and saggy around the middle and ooooooooooold.
Panel 3: She tells him that that's nonsense; all he needs is a good rest after a hard day of paying more taxes than he ought to.
Panel 4: As she gives him a back rub, he thought-bubbles that a man is never too old to be mothered.
Summary: He can, however, be too old to whine about how bad his life is. I can see a messed-up teenager or some poor soul with real problems in his life needing pity. I can't relate to the need a rich idiot like him has to be comforted because he can't have everything his own way all the freaking time.
