It seems that Lynn is starting to use up Sunday strips from 1980 now; that's because we get this oldie-but-baddie about Elly getting ready for an evening out:
Panel 1: We start off with Goggle-Eyed Elly anxiously reading "Hair" magazine to see what the styles are now.
Panel 2: She then yells "I am not leaving this house with this same old hairstyle!!!"
Panel 3: She TWIST-PIN-BRUSH-PIN-COMB-PIN-ARRANGEs her hair...
Panel 4: ...and stares the Bug-Eyed Glare of Horror at the less than flattering results.
Panel 5: She furiously BRAID-POKE-PIN-COMB-JAB-TIEs her hair into place...
Panel 6: ...and glares angrily at the resultant proto-Ellybun.
Panel 7: She's starting to, as Michael Stipe would call it, lose her religion now so her COMB-PIN-TWIST-POKE-BRUSHing her hair isn't going to end well.
Panel 8: We next get a reminder that Lynn really loves Peanuts because Elly yells "AAAAAAAUUUUUGGGGHHHHHH!!!!" as if she were the Blockhead himself.
Panel 9: John, who's been standing just outside the bedroom door all this time and has thus heard his wife's meltdown, is more than a little apprehensive when Elly says "Okay, now I'm ready."
Panel 10: As we see Elly sporting both the same perfectly serviceable hairdo she started with and a self-righteous frown, John glares right at us and thought-bubbles "A smart man asks no questions."
Summary: What makes this really funny is that we know that the Elly of the not-too-distant future has to be talked into changing her hair-style owing to the belief that her coiffure is her identity.
