It would seem that we violently lurched from Connie's Mad Love for anything unattached and male to examples of John being a ill-tempered, selfish, clueless Neanderthal who kept Elly down because he was a man and that's what they do. I also sort of know why; since Lynn can't enjoy Valentine's Day any more, she's subconsciously trying to ruin it for everyone else.

Goody. We got John not realizing that human skin absorbs cold cream like a sponge.

Panel 1: We start off with him asking Elly, who's applying cold cream, what she's putting all over her face.

Panel 2: He's on the verge of panic as he tells her that he hopes she isn't wearing that to bed.

Panel 3: Elly says she is and asks him if he doesn't want her to have a healthy, glowing complexion the next day.

Panel 4: His testy response is that if he has to look at that the next morning, he definitely doesn't.

Summary: John doesn't seem to have realized that Elly's skin will have absorbed the cold cream in about half an hour or so. In short, he's stoooooooopid and useless.

ETA: Not even this banner celebrating V-day can take the sting out of Lynn's need to kick Rod between the uprights in a national forum.
