In today's strip, Mike wants company in thinking that school is a chamber of horrors because it makes him do things that aren't to his tastes like he's a nobody who isn't allowed to talk.

(Strip Number 1196, Original Publication Date, 28 August 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Mike whine to Brian that in a couple of days, they'll have to go back to school.

Panel 2: To his surprise, Brian can't wait to go back to class because this year, it's high nineties or bust.

Panel 3: Having been disappointed that Brian doesn't agree that school is bad because they give a malingering, disruptive, inhumanly self-absorbed and stubborn congenital idiot his right name (which is to say "Michael Patterson"), Mike gets up and leaves.

Panel 4: He sits next to Gordon and whines about having to go back to class in hopes that he'll have a sympathetic ear.

Summary: Again, Mike doesn't want to admit that the problem he has with school is staring him in the mirror. He's bone-idle, he turns having to do things that aren't to his tastes into an excuse to squeal about noooooobody loves him, he thinks that he knows everything and he's too stupid to do basic arithmetic and yet it's his teacher's fault because they point out he's a muttonhead.
