The one where Dawn talks about a 'baffling' tendency that has turned her mother into Jack Benny.

(Original Publication Date, 25 October 1990)

Panel 1: We head towards Elly's speech about how the children are making up their own rules with Liz and Dawn walking down the street. Liz says that she doesn't know what she's going to be for Halloween this year and asks Dawn what she's going to be. Dawn says that her mom wants her to be a clown because Lynn is stupid and doesn't realize that most people find clowns to be super freaking creepy.

Panel 2: When reminded that she was a clown each of the Halloweens they've known one another, Liz asks Dawn why she's going to be a clown again.

Panel 3: Dawn says that the costume still fits.

Summary: We have a shmeer of Tiger Woman here, I'd say. It's not about Dawn baffling people by wearing the same damned thing, it's about Carol not cracking open her damned purse for a reason that turns out to be depressing, racist and awful.
