(Strip Number 337, Original Publication Date, 9 November 1982)
Panel 1: We start off with Mike smiling as he writes the phrase "Sum kids got lost but wer found; The end."
Panel 2: Elly's disembodied head tells him that he was supposed to write a short story and that his teacher will never accept this.
Panel 3: She gets gobsmacked when he tells her that he can't make it any shorter.
Summary: Elly never did really get that he's internalized her own poor study habits, did she? Since children learn from their parents' example, he grew up thinking that being a malingering git whining about overwork is normal and good.
