In today's strip, John makes an asinine comment about how much money Elly raised and is punished by being revealed to be so stupid, he bought his own old black and white television.

(Strip Number 4432, Original Publication Date, 25 May 1984)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we find Elly and Monique counting up the take. As they do so, John makes an asinine comment about how now that the madness is over, they can now count up the pennies.

Panel 2: Elly asks John what he means by 'counting her pennies' because she and Monique have made over $800.

Panel 3: Why, they even managed to get some total moron to pay twenty-five smackers for John and Elly's crappy old black and white TV.

Panel 4: When we next see John, he's in his workshop looking at the TV and thinking it looked familiar when he bought it.

Summary: The Lynnsight is going to be all about how Lynn doesn't really know how much Ruth and Tom raised. What it should be about is an asshole who thinks that since a man ain't involved, the little wifeys could maybe raise about five or six bucks on a good day. That, or a wifey whose contempt for the people she sold things to couldn't be clearer.
