Today's strip is something of a puzzler owing to my not knowing who, if anyone, Lynn is ripping off here:

(Strip Number 163, Original Publication Date, 7 August 1981)

Panel 1: Remember how we thought it would be nice if Mike asked how Lawrence was doing? The closest he gets is asking if he was missed.

Panel 2: Since Mike got to go to the neat cabin with his family instead of being forced to camp outside while Connie entertained Ted, Lawrence head-butts him in the stomach.

Panel 3: We next see another Ball Of Violence.

Panel 4: As they smile at one another, Mike says that he missed Lawrence too.

Summary: The next time we see these two, Mike will be making a stupid remark about how alarmed Mrs Baird is at seeing a shaven Farley; first, though, we have to trudge through soap-operatic excess.
