We end the blizzard arc with Mike making a bad pun about insurance when he tries to explain away the loaner Elly got as part of her coverage.

(Strip Number 1256, Original Publication Date, 16 February 1988)

Panel 1: Having noticed the new car in the driveway, an impressed Lizzie asks Mike where it came from. He tells her that they're renting it.

Panel 2: He then says that Mom and Dad pay a company to wait for them to have an accident and when they do, he THINKS that they have this thing that sort of says that they can use this car until the one they have is fixed....he guesses.

Panel 3: Since Lynn loves terrible wordplay and doesn't trust insurance companies, Mike tells her that it's called unsurance.

Summary: We get another reminder of Lynn's distrust of insurance people when Velocity Boy nails John's joywagon.....and when she goes nuts because we don't have flood insurance in this country.
