We go back to defiling the Bard's grave when Nilda uses bad wordplay when her husband irritates her by ogling some woman dressed as a flamenco dancer.

(Strip Number 1099, Original Publication Date, 28 October 1986)

Panel 1: At the party itself, Nilda gushes to Elly about the fabulous turnout because there've never been that many people at the theatre. (This throw-away line says more than Lynn thinks it does. It says that people have better things to do than have CULTURE shoved down their throats by a scold.)

Panel 2: She goes on to comment that Wardrobe's been really busy with all the people trying on costumes.

Panel 3: She then sets up the terrible joke by commenting on how said costumes range from Peter Pan to King Lear.

Panel 4: When when some dude named Henry who's probably her husband leers at an attractive woman dressed as a flamenco dancer, Nilda has to remind him it's L-E-A-R.

Summary: Great. Another reminder that men can't help it and pretty women invite it. Welcome to Milborough. Please set your watches back to the Victorian era. Also, if this is the biggest crowd that's ever been at the place as a theater, this tells us something Elly would rather not face.
