Today's strip has one of the guests turn into Captain Obvious on us: this is a mildly humorous lead-in to the super-important "Elly sunburns herself like an idiot" arc.

(Strip Number 214, Original Publication Date, 12 January 1982)

Panel 1: Today's single panel wonder depicts John and Elly at the beach lounging on deck chairs while surrounded by well-tanned snowbirds; a balding man holding a mixed drink notices that they're still pale and 'humorously' asks if they're new here.

Summary: The odd thing about this is that the notes are bound to be more entertaining than the cliché we're being subjected to here. I should think that Alley Oop, BC and Fred Flintstone complained about how old this gag is.
