Thursday, 18 June 2015: The Boomer Lens-cap Stupidity Edition.

Lizzie embarrasses and angers John by pointing out that he's too stupid to have removed the lens cap from his camera.

(Strip Number 4637, Original Publication Date, 19 June 1986)

Panel 1: Now that we're at the ceremony, we find ourselves watching Miss Lyon congratulate Lizzie and Lizzie thanking her.

Panel 2: As John gets ready to take a picture, Lizzie notices something.

Panel 3: She tells Daddy what that something is by pointing at him and yelling "LENS CAP!!"

Panel 4: Embarrassed, John returns to his seat where Elly assures him this will be one of life's treasured moments.

Summary: This is sort of what I mean by 'boomer lens cap stupidity'; simply put, John is angry at Lizzie because she wasn't supposed to point out that he was doing something stupid.
