Today's strip reminds us that the costume Michael chose is the result of another of Lynn's thought-experiments. This is because the experiment was "What if Aaron chose a costume that was impractical just to spite me?"

(Strip Number 969, Original Publication Date, 29 October 1985)

Panel 1: As the dance continues, Mike complains to Brian that he's sweating hot in his costume and his neck is starting to itch.

Panel 2: Brian stays in character when asking Gordon and Darryl to get Mike a glass of the punch Deanna got in Panel 1.

Panel 3: As they pour it down a hose-a-phonium, it starts to spill just a little.

Panel 4: Brian irritates Mike by making a stupid comment about how disembodied heads leak.

Summary: Today's Lynnsight has her boast about how she invented the whole thing just to see what would happen if someone came as a silly costume like this. Given her need to use her strip to nag her family, her agenda becomes obvious in that she's huffing and puffing about how awful it is that her children come up with ideas of their own instead of letting Mommy decide.
