In today's strip, John uses bad wordplay to tell Mike that raking leaves has destroyed his ability to enjoy Autumn. Ah, well. At least he isn't threatening to come back next year in greater numbers with his army of robot monkey lawncare experts......

(Strip Number 735, Original Publication Date, 27 October 1984)

Panel 1: We start things off with an enthusiastic Mike admiring his surroundings as he points out that the air is crisp and the leaves are really falling.

Panel 2: He then asks John "Don'tcha just love the colors, Daddy? Don'tcha just love the way they crunch? Don'tcha just love this time of year?"

Panel 3: A bummed-out and played-out John stands there, rake in hand and says "Yeah. Heaps."

Summary: This is the same idiot who eventually gets a bug up his shorts because Steve or Greg or someone defies tradition and gets a leaf blower. The reason is that Lynn doesn't like or trust anything that actually does simplify her life because she likes needless complexity.
