The interesting thing about today's strip is not that Gordon has moved from extortion to latching onto candy or that Gordon's mother is a better parent than Elly. The interesting thing is going to be the Lynnsight that tries to hide the fact that Lynn makes Joe "No Magic Retcons" Quesada look honest.

(Strip Number 4339, Original Publication Date, 20 June 1983)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we find ourselves watching Gordon hand Mike his money back. As the poor mope makes a mess of himself eating a candy bar, Gord tells him that his mother told him to give Mike his four dollars back because while he is allowed to let other children play with his skates, he isn't supposed to charge them for it.

Panel 2: A delighted Mike says that that's neat and asks if he can borrow them now. Gord says sure.

Panel 3: Provided, of course, that Mike gives him the rest of his Whoopee Bar. Mike is astonished by this.

Summary: Oddly enough, astonishment is right out of the window. While the Lynnsight should be about how Gordo was supposed to be a sort of Eddie Haskell character at first but she decided she didn't want one in her strip, Lynn will make an absurd fool of herself trying to make it look like the Gordon of 1983 was the Gordon of now.
