Today's strip has Marian and Elly be mildly confused by yet another reminder that John thinks mostly with his stomach.

(Strip Number 1194, Original Publication Date, 21 August 1987)

Panel 1: As she gets ready to head out to her and Jim's reunion, Marian tells Elly that she's made them pies, rolls, three kinds of cookies and two cakes.

Panel 2: This means that the family will have things to enjoy long after she leaves.

Panel 3: Elly tells Marian that she wants her to know how much the family will appreciate this.

Panel 4: Elly and Marian are mildly perplexed when John says they'll think of her every time they look at the freezer.

Summary: They really shouldn't be. This is because they should be well aware of his being really weird when he tries to pay someone a compliment as well as his not realizing when he's said something stupid like this.
