The one where John's ambiguous comment leads a Milborough Mutant to believe that he's a cross-dresser.

(Original Publication Date, 17 May 1991)

Panel 1: We find John at the apartment building he's decided Fiona is going to live. The balding, bucktooth mutant landlord tells him that it's a one-bedroom flat on the ground floor. John says that he'll take it.

Panel 2: Now that he's got himself a new tenant, Bunsen Beakerdew tells John that he'll need the first and last month's rent up front because Lynn is bad at understanding renting things.

Panel 3: We set up a joke at John's expense when the man asks John what name it's to be under. John says "'Name'? Oh, uh......Fiona. Fiona Brass."

Panel 4: The landlord gets goggle-eyed and tells a confused John "Here's the key, Fiona. Tsk....It takes all kinds!"

Summary: The joke is, of course, that the landlord thinks that John is renting the place so he can play dress-up. Since we never see him again, this is the least of John's problems.

LiveJournal PSA

So, I don't know if this has happened to anyone else.... With the new notification bell that shows when someone has replied to one of our comments, I wasn't checking the email address associated with my LiveJournal account as regularly as I used to.

I went in today for the first time in a week or so, and I saw that LiveJournal had been sending me notices that I'd be forced to change my password. I followed the link in the email, where I was prompted to put in my old password and my new. When I filled them in and tried to click through, I got an error saying my old password was wrong. I tried a couple-few more times before going with "I forgot my password" and following the prompts from the email generated from that. ONLY to find that my IP address was "temporarily blocked" due to too many login attempts!

Afterward, I discovered a LiveJournal email that was in Russian. I used Gmail's translation tool and found that the email was to notify me (in Russian) that my password had been disabled because I had not reset it quickly enough. The email also noted that I probably had not noticed, as my session had been kept open.

So if any of you are like me, not checking the email you've associated with your LiveJournal account, it would probably be a good idea to check. And if you're finding yourself unable to login, your password has probably been disabled!
