In today's strip, Mike misinterprets John's grumbling about how Phil has taken root at the Pattermanse; given that we've been given lots of proof that a woman who can't understand certain phrases thinks she speaks good English, it's sort of annoying to watch her lambaste Mike for his ignorance.

(Strip Number 4188, Original Publication Date, 19 June 1982)

Panel 1: We find Mike and Lawrence playing with a toy boat in a puddle; Lawrence asks Mike how long Phil is going to be staying with them and Mike says that he doesn't know but that Phil is looking for a place.

Panel 2: Mike thinks that Phil must be looking to live at a farm or something.

Panel 3: This is because John keeps saying that he'll be there till the cows come home.

Summary: Since the 'end of time' that John frets about is '15 August 1982', it's sort of annoying to watch him stress about not having things just so; also, Bil Keane phoned and he wants his shtick back.
