The one where John's ambiguous comment leads a Milborough Mutant to believe that he's a cross-dresser.

(Original Publication Date, 17 May 1991)

Panel 1: We find John at the apartment building he's decided Fiona is going to live. The balding, bucktooth mutant landlord tells him that it's a one-bedroom flat on the ground floor. John says that he'll take it.

Panel 2: Now that he's got himself a new tenant, Bunsen Beakerdew tells John that he'll need the first and last month's rent up front because Lynn is bad at understanding renting things.

Panel 3: We set up a joke at John's expense when the man asks John what name it's to be under. John says "'Name'? Oh, uh......Fiona. Fiona Brass."

Panel 4: The landlord gets goggle-eyed and tells a confused John "Here's the key, Fiona. Tsk....It takes all kinds!"

Summary: The joke is, of course, that the landlord thinks that John is renting the place so he can play dress-up. Since we never see him again, this is the least of John's problems.
