(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.
