We end the week by having John doing his damnedest to make Canada sound unappealing. Granted, I freaking HATE winter myself but, if given the opportunity to go South, wouldn't go out of my way to boast about how awful the place I come from is.

(Strip Number 220, Original Publication Date, 22 January 1982)

Panel 1: We start things off with John telling the bartender that he hates to leave Barbados so soon.

Panel 2: He goes on to tell the man that back home, they're having freezing rain and snow.

Panel 3: He then asks the man (whose name is Rudy) if he's ever been to Canada; Rudy is mildly gobsmacked for a second.

Panel 4: He then proves that Tentacle Fingers are not restricted to white people as he asks "What for??"

Summary: What for, indeed? He's probably had to spend most of his career listening to Northerners talking about how happy they are to take a break from hellish conditions so it's not as if he's going to be that eager to check the place out.
