I have no real idea what'll appear today; I'd like to think that it might have something to do with the changing seasons but you never know with Lynn.

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.
