Today's strip is all about a design flaw in Mike's costume that leads to a "joke" about how Alan was able to do more because he has a Y chromosome.

(Strip Number 327, Original Publication Date, 27 October 1982)

Panel 1: John helps Mike with his costume by telling him to put his arms through the shoulder straps.

Panel 2: He then asks Mike what he thinks of his nifty costume.

Panel 3: Mike tells his daddy that he thinks that he's got a problem.

Panel 4: The problem is that he can't get out of the room.

Summary: You'd think that John would have had the brains to realize that accuracy isn't everything when building models; problem is that if he had gone into things trying to compensate for the width of doors, we couldn't have a joke about how Elly had a far less lenient curfew than Phil.
