Panel 1: Mike's disembodied head asks Laura if there really is such a thing as a best-dressed hog contest. She says that yes, there is and yes, it's an annual event.
Panel 2: Last year, Freddy Parkinson won with his hog dressed in a tuxedo and the year before that the Orchards won with "Mae West."
Panel 3: Mike asks her why they do crazy stuff like that given all the work that they have to do farming.
Panel 4: She says it's to keep them from thinking about all of the stuff they have to do around here.
Summary: There are no other diversions in their life, not with Lynn calling the shots. It's not like in real life where they can zip off to Vegas or something.
