When John complains about how the librarians are taking advantage of Elly by getting her to agree to hold their yard sale on the Pattermanse's front lawn, Elly explains that she had to because they got her drunk. Yeah. No exploitation there, gang.

(Strip Number 4428, Original Publication Date, 16 May 1984)

Panel 1: When Elly returns home with the news that the Library will be having a yard sale in their front lawn, John asks her why she agreed to that.

Panel 2: She tells him that she felt they expected her to say yes.

Panel 3: When John says that he thinks that they took her for granted, Elly tells him that this is not exactly the case.

Panel 4: She smiles a drunken smile and explains that they took her to the pub!

Summary: Not only is this stupid because it implies that anyone who can get Elly good and liquored up can get her to get behind anything, it's stupid because today's Lynnsight will be all about how this is the only way that Lynn could tell the story of selling off her and Rod's (mostly Rod's) old junk before moving to Corbeil.
