In today's strip, Annie tells Elly that she plans to get Steve a chain saw for Christmas; when Elly points out that Steve has no earthly use for one, Annie counters by saying that he hasn't got one.

(Strip Number 513, Original Publication Date, 7 December 1983)

Panel 1: Now that we're at the mall, Annie tells Elly that she knows exactly what she's going to get Steve for Christmas this year: a chainsaw!

Panel 2: Elly reminds Annie that they don't have a wood stove and you couldn't exactly call a couch potato like Steve an outdoorsman before asking her why she has to buy him a chainsaw.

Panel 3: Annie says "He hasn't got one."

Summary: This is the sort of logic that results in Elly getting tires and appliances for Christmas. As babsbybend says, we have a spouse using a present to nag the other about his or her "duties" (Steve, get off your ass and do things! Elly, become a better cook!) posing as an oblivious twit.
