In today's strip, John makes a rather idiotic pun about how Evil Linus Van Pelt's inability to know his place or read his mother's body language gets him into trouble with Elly.

(Strip Number 4520, Original Publication Date, 8 October 1985)

Panel 1: When Elly asks Mike if she can talk to Connie again, Dumbass witlessly blows her off wih a distracted-sounding "just a sec."

Panel 2: Since he's always been too stupid to realize when he's pissing her off, he pulls the same stupid "just a sec" stunt when she tries reminding him that it's a long-distance call.

Panel 3: As John looks on, she yanks the handset out of his hands and bellows "I was on there FIRST.....AND DON'T YOU "JUST A SEC" ME!!!!!"

Panel 4: John puns it up and calls it "the continuing battle of the secses."

Summary: It's actually a different sort of battle. In one corner, we have an angry woman looking for an excuse to pulverize this kid who seems hell-bent on shackling her to a house she sees as a prison so he can treat her like his maidservant while in the other corner, we have a slow-witted little boy who is honestly too freaking dumb to notice when he's making her angry or what it is he does that pisses her off.
