In today's strip, Lawrence, Gordon and Deanna stand around like so many sacks of manure while Brad beats the whey outta Mike for not much of a reason. After he picks himself up, he claims that the vicious and unnecessary beating he got didn't even hurt.

(Strip Number 501, Original Publication Date, 17 November 1983)

Panel 1: We start things off with Brad punching the breath outta Mike while the smaller, weaker boy tries to explain that he didn't mean to flick the eraser at him. Granted, this is only because he's so damned stupid, he thought Brad ceased to exist because he wasn't looking at him but he is telling sort of the truth.

Panel 2: Gordon, Deanna and Lawrence stand around like shivering pillars of shite watching Brad beat the holy living Hell out of a boy half of his size for a stupid reason.

Panel 3: After Brad departs from his glorious triumph over the possessing class and tells the parasite standing on the necks of the workers "So long, nerdhead", Mike's fellow imperialist running dogs watch as he staggers to his feet.

Panel 4: They then have to look at a boy who looks as if he lost an argument with King Kong claim that the hiding he was subjected to didn't even hurt.

Summary: This would be the "social isolation" part of the bullying experience; while Lynn's notes will probably be all about how cutting someone out of the herd and tormenting them is just the way things are, I can think of any number of parents of bullycides who might like to tell her where to stick her damned strip. (Yeah. I went there. I brought stuff back, too.)
