In today's strip, we learn that Filthy Sadist Gym Teacher is right to single Mike out as being somewhat less than an example of physical perfection. That's because the couch potato is so exhausted that he's too tired to take his clothes off when he showers after gym class.

(Strip Number 943, Original Publication Date, 18 September 1985)

Panel 1: As gym class ends, Filthy Sadist Gym Teacher tells his charges to hit the showers. (For those of you paying attention, it should be noted that for now, Mike is a brunette again.)

Panel 2: We find Mike in a shower stall gasping for breath as the shower runs full bore. Since he looks as if he's about to die from exhaustion, it doesn't seem to have occurred to him to undress first.

Panel 3: We next find Brian looking over the curtain trying to get a sleeping Mike to pay attention to something.

Panel 4: When Brian tells Mike that he's supposed to take his clothes off before he showers, our boy gets all gobsmacked.

Summary: If Lynn hadn't gotten bored with the gym teacher, we could have looked forward to her making Michael akin to another Delicate Genius: Les Moore with his hapless incapacity to do anything physical.
