When Monique waxes rhapsodic about how Elly has been recognized as a woman of letters, our hero makes a clumsy attempt at sarcasm based on the dictionary definition of the word.

(Strip Number 1087, Original Publication Date, 9 September 1986)

Panel 1: A little while later, Monique tells Elly that she and the others want to take her to lunch to celebrate her getting published.

Panel 2: The oldest of the three (who happens to be named Nilda) says that it isn't every day one of them manages to accomplish something like getting buried in the outsider art section of Canadian Content New Yorker.

Panel 3: Monique sets up the punchline by saying that Elly has been recognized as a woman.

Panel 4: This allows Elly to make a really bad joke about how it's a good thing she wore a dress otherwise they wouldn't have been able to do that.

Summary: Prepare for a defense of sophomoric humor by a purveyor of God-awful wordplay. Perhaps she'll praise her daddy's equally dubious command of the language. Either that or she's going to talk about how they gave her a Reuben for being a girl and not for outing Lawrence and getting into two thousand papers.
