In today's strip, Mike, who's stuck for a costume idea, rebuffs Lizzie's sure-to-make-him-laughed-at clever plan. Ah, well. At least Lynn is aware that a Lizzie would have no idea why people would laugh at Mike in that situation, right?

(Strip Number 476, Original Publication Date, 7 October 1983)

Panel 1: We start things off with Mike telling Lizzie that he has no idea what he's going to be for Halloween this year; every other year, he's had ideas but this time around, she's stuck.

Panel 2: Since Lizzie is three and doesn't understand that her suggestion would get Mike laughed at, she helpfully suggests that she be the Mommy an'he be the baby.

Panel 3: Mike tells her that he's hard up but he's not desperate.

Summary: This is a cute strip based on a rather common-place phenomenon. Too bad that not only will the Lynnsight ruin it, it's followed by Elly nailing herself to her cross because Lizzie got happy with the make-up.
