Lynn, having reminded us that Ted is a knuckle-dragging idiot with bad advice and that John is lucky to have Elly to think for him, is probably going to show us John making a clumsy attempt to admit that fact today; since he's a mayyyyyun, he'll do so in a manner that makes Elly even angrier.

Wrong; he takes Ted's stupid advice to heart because he's born to be a contrary-minded idiot; this means that he will whine about how cruel Elly is for wanting to be happy at his expense.

Panel 1: John tells Elly, who's about to give away all the casual clothes he wears when he's being handy, not handsome, that he's being hen-pecked and should wear what he likes.

Panel 2: She says he can't listen to Ted; he's a bachelor and an idiot.

Panel 3: John says, as he puts on his orange shirt, that she may be right on both counts but Ted DOES know what being hen-pecked is.

Panel 4: After all, the man lives with his mother. The comparison fits because Elly herself is thirty-one going on eighty.

Summary: This leads to Connie and Elly dissing Pete's quirks tomorrow; boy, I'm glad Lynn expanded on this, aren't you?
