Thelma Baird's contribution to Housening 1987 begins to end with her complaining about how few men there are at Bedside Manor.

(Strip Number 1156, Original Publication Date, 18 May 1987)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Elly visit Thelma Baird at the seniors complex; she thinks that Thelma's going to like it there because she's got herself a well-appointed anteroom to Masky McDeath's Void.

Panel 2: She goes on to remind Mrs Baird that they've got a dining room, an on-call nurse, get-togethers, activities and other amenities.

Panel 3: Mrs Baird says that it's okay for a senior's home; she only has one complaint.

Panel 4: For some reason, Elly is astonished when Thelma says that there aren't enough men.

Summary: This is because Golden Girls had yet to become a cultural force. Up to that point, the idea was that the urge for companionship went away over time which is bollocks. Lynn knows better now.
