In today's strip, Michael finally gets told what the purpose of his trip actually is: to teach him that he isn't actually being overworked at home. That's right, people. Even then, John was trying to adjust Michael's attitude from "having free will" to "slavishly agreeing with every stupid-ass, self-serving 'idea' festering in the malignant lump of sewage John calls a brain." 

(Strip Number 4343, Original Publication Date, 12 July 1983)

Panel 1: As they drive down to the farm, Danny says that except for the corn, the crops aren't nearly as good as they were last year.

Panel 2: John beams with delight because Danny managed to fix up the tractor up for him so as to keep him nice and busy.

Panel 3: Mike tells Bev's floating, disembodied head that he thought that they'd come there for a vacation.

Panel 4: Bev, having put her head back on, tells him that on a farm in the summer, there isn't any such thing.

Summary: She's right, of course. Too bad that she's got an idiot brother who's going to be put out because she assigns chores small children can actually do and a daughter who needs her arse kicked for being a carping, insensitive and hateful pain in the neck.
