Today, we have a seasonal variation of a sexist old joke that contrasts the woman's 'ignorance' with the man's need to talk about 'reality'; in this instance, Elly talks about the open prairie skies while John talks about mucking a stable. Meanwhile, the children are probably off making a combine harvester into a toy.

(Strip Number 443, Original Publication Date, 19 July 1983)

Panel 1: As the two of them look into the distance, Elly asks "The prairies sure are beautiful, aren't they, John?"

Panel 2: She then talks about how the skies are so dramatic that one can see a storm miles away.

Panel 3: She wraps up by gushing about the singing birds, green grass and how everything is so clean and fresh.

Panel 4: John holds up a pitchfork filled with muck and tells her that she hasn't been working in the back end of the barn.

Summary: Hah-bloody-hah, Johnny Jump-up!! Razz Elly because she doesn't realize that barnyard animals crap in the barn. Nice fella, isn't he?
