(Strip Number 4104, Original Publication Date, 12 December 1981)
Panel 1: It's night-time at the Pattermanse; as Elly tucks him into bed, we see Mike react strongly in the negative to Elly's 'good news'. Since she's an idiot, she doesn't know why Mike is panicking because she talked to his teacher about him.
Panel 2: Tentacle-Fingered Elly ignores Mike's baffling and meaningless panic so as to tell him that Mrs Hardacre is strict with him because he's bright and thinks he could do very well if.....
Panel 3: Since Elly didn't get to the part about silly, attention-getting stunts yet and since not playing the fool would be too much to ask of him, he's all incredulous when he asks "She picks on me because I'm smart?"
Panel 4: He then tells Super Teddy "Boy! And they say kids are hard to understand!"
Summary: I don't see what's so hard to understand about this; she's picked one discipline problem to turn into her Special Project while ignoring the other students. Since he's too oblivious to realize that he's a Special Project, he's not much of a Genius. He's still Delicate, though.
