We begin another "Michael is too stupid to get out of trouble's way" arc with someone pointing out that a porcupine chewed a hole in the wall of the girls' shower.

(Strip Number 1327, Original Publication Date, 4 August 1988)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Mike complain to Aryan Lawrence and Brian about having to use an outhouse while at camp.

Panel 2: Since he has a bad attitude and lacks a work ethic, he wildly overestimates the distance to the lavatory and the inconvenience associated with walking outside to use it.

Panel 3: Since Lynn isn't going to admit that she simply flipped a coin to see which ethnic character to ruin, she'll make up some lame excuse about how Lawrence is only pretending to be excited about the hole a porcupine chewed out of the shower hut. Mike sets up the arc by asking why said hole is important.

Panel 4: She then reminds us that she thinks that all men are slobbering fiends that need their throbbing urges contained by having a bunch of twelve year olds go BOING 'cause the hole is in the girls' shower.

Summary: Once again, Lynn's overweening haste to castigate the much older Aaron for his 'filthy' thoughts and her need to plagiarize exploitation films make Mike look like a worse asshole than he should actually be.
