The one where Mike learns what prevailing winds are and why they visit hardship upon a simpleton who doesn't know to point the discharge chute away from his face.

(Original Publication Date, 14 December 1990)

Panel 1: Now that Mike has gotten the snowblower to work, we see him in the distance heading towards us. Since Lynn thinks that snowblowers and leaf blowers destroy character, he's accompanied by sound effects that mock their engine performance.

Panel 2: The cloud of snow he raises grows larger as he gets closer.

Panel 3: The snow now fills up the panel.

Panel 4: Lynn accidentally subverts her own joke that has a Mike who's covered in snow learn that this must what they mean by not working into the wind by having the discharge chute point towards Mike instead of away from him.

Summary: It's the "I have a cheap-ass flip book" crap all over again because Lynn is mocking a machine she doesn't know how to run. It's not that she's incompetent at something, it's that the thing she'd bad at is 'worthless' to begin with.
