The lead-up to Mother's Day reminds us that rock-stupid John has no idea what Elly likes because of his irritating habit of thinking of her as the organic adjunct to a washer-dryer instead of as a human being.

(Strip Number 1048, Original Publication Date, 9 May 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves at the clinic watching John remind Jean that Mother's Day is coming up and that he can never figure out what to get Elly.

Panel 2: Since she forgets that John has a huge blind spot when it comes to his wife, she suggests that since a lot of women love those decorative soaps, he should perhaps buy Elly that.

Panel 3: Since he thinks he knows what Jean means, a smiling John is seen heading down to a store on his lunch break.

Panel 4: He astonishes Jean by asking her if he should have had the big box of Wunder Sudz™ he bought gift-wrapped.

Summary: This, of course, is because John is a stupid MAN who doesn't know what Elly likes and also assumes that her job is to cook, clean and raise kids. This is also of course about how Rod needs taking down a peg or two for something.
