The one where a bird insults Farley.

(Original Publication Date, 10 April 1991)

Panel 1: We find Farley looking up at the branches of the tree in the back yard listening to birds singing. Given that the word 'twit' is buried in all of the chickadee-dee-dees and chirrups, the strip pretty much writes itself.

Panel 2: We zoom out as we watch more of the same.

Panel 3: Since Farley needs to put in his place again, he barks angrily at the birds.

Panel 4: As they fly away, it's either a straggler or the tree itself that calls him "TWIT!"

Summary: In the original run, this one immediately followed Liz angsting that she too will eventually undergo a stunt pregnancy because Lynn chickened out. It was also the filler strip before another "Mike finally learns that Elizabeth has feelings again" arc.
