In today's strip, Mike channels Dennis Mitchell when telling the people in an elevator about the perfume John had sprayed on his wrist.

(Strip Number 519, Original Publication Date, 15 December 1983)

Panel 1: Shortly after the crock-pot incident, we find John and Mike walking towards somewhere. Mike tells John "Boy, that was sure some nice perfume you got Mom!" John certainly thinks so too.

Panel 2: Mike then asks if John had to have it sprayed on his wrists; John says yes, that always has to happen.

Panel 3: He then points out an elevator by which he and Mike can get to the next floor.

Panel 4: John then stands there looking like he got punched in the gut because Mike's breezy comment about how if anyone smells anything, it's coming from Daddy was made the other passengers look at him in disgust.

Summary: It's tiresome attempts to pay tribute to and totally not steal from other creators that make me glad that in two years or so, the strip will finally be getting good. Once Lynn finds her own voice, we won't live in fear of having the real Dennis show up and slap Mike with a Cease and Desist order.
