John's attempt to help Phil out after the wedding party ceremonially trashes his ride sort of back-fires on the Pattersons themselves because his solution was to trade cars.

(Strip Number 1190, Original Publication Date, 13 July 1987)

Panel 1: After the reception, we find John explaining that one of the revelers engaged in another stupid-to-Lynn tradition: filling Phil's ride with newspaper and taping the doors shut so as to make it impossible to get into in a dignified manner.

Panel 2: Since the happy couple looked beat, John made what Lynn thinks is the super-generous offer of trading cars so they could have a happy honeymoon.

Panel 3: Elly admits that it was a nice gesture but wonders how they are supposed to get home.

Panel 4: She's mildly flummoxed when a beaming John points to Phil's trash-laden sedan.

Summary: John's brain runs in straight lines so this shouldn't have been a shock. Also, this is what we're talking about when we say that Lynn doesn't GET weddings.
