Today, Elly becomes sympathetic because asshat Mike gets a bug up his ass about her campaign because he could get teased.

(Strip Number 4679, Original Publication Date, 20 September 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Brian ask a terrified Mike if that's his mother out the window.

Panel 2: He then asks Mike if that's not his mother wearing a picket sign outside the old courthouse.

Panel 3: When Brian says that yes, that definitely IS his mother waving a picket sign, Mike's face is frozen in fear.

Panel 4: Embarrassed Mike is embarrassed and insists he doesn't have a mother because she exposed HIM to mild ribbing.

Summary: This is what I mean when I say that Mike is fighting to keep the Middle Years from happening. He doesn't seem to like the idea of the wider world because he cannot hope to occupy all of it and that's bad. The issue to him is not sports versus arts but his not getting teased because he can't see past his nose.
