I guess I was wrong; this is a filler and it's blandly irritating.
Panel 1:We start the preceedings with MikeClone and Fauxley staring at
Panel 2: The idea is to put Fauxley on the same coffee table Frank is on. (This fish has always been called Frank; Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia.)
Panel 3: As could have been foreseen, the puppy noisily laps up the water in the fishbowl.
Panel 4: As a freaked-out RevElly yanks the puppy away before he drinks up all the water, MikeClone but-MOOOOOOMS that he wanted Fauxley an' Frank to meet each other....
Panel 5: ....so Frank had the dog over for a drink.
Summary: I don't recall the original Mike being this stupid. Self-serving, maybe but not as dense as a cinderblock.
ETA: howtheduck has just figured out something: MikeClone is simply parroting RevElly. Substitute Phil and Connie for Farley and Frank and you'll see what he means.
