Dynamite Dave is a pompous ass, a male chauvinist pig who blames women for his own stupidity and also a small-minded buffoon more interested in headache music than in letting Elly say anything about the city's heritage.

(Strip Number 4632, Original Publication Date, 11 June 1986)

Panel 1: When Elly sits down for her interview, the on-air talent announces himself as being Dynamite Dave Dugas of "Let's Talk Turkey" who's interviewing a Mrs Elly Patterson.

Panel 2: Dynamite Dave then starts blathering about whether Elly would prefer to be called 'Ms' or 'Miss' instead because he's always getting in trouble on that one. This, I think, is because it's the fault of evil conflict-causing MEN that English doesn't have a sort of catch-all honorific for women.

Panel 3: The rocket-jawed arsebucket is so busy blathering about the need women have to accommodate white male privilege and wear signs so men don't have to evolve that Elly can't get a word in edgewise.

Panel 4: He then defeats Elly by saying that they'll be right back after "Pig Out On Love" by The Emetix.

Summary: There's some clod out there who's probably the target of Lynn's rage because he can talk faster than she can. Also, Lynn couldn't make her hatred of anything that ain't Bobby Curtola clearer, could she?
