(Strip Number 353, Original Publication Date, 16 December 1982)
Panel 1: We find our hero at the ladies' wear department trying to buy Elly a dress for Christmas; he stands there looking like he'd been gaffed as a saleswoman asks him "If you don't know her size, do you know her height?"
Panel 2: Her asking him "Her weight? Her measurements?" confuses him all the more.
Panel 3: So does asking him if she's the approximate size of any of the women he sees in the store.
Panel 4: He irritates the woman by asking her if she has anything in one size fits all.
Summary: The Lynnsight will no doubt be all about how MEN are too stupid to remember their wives' measurements while at the same time expecting their pooooooooor, put-upon spouses to remember their own measurements. In short, plus ça change, plus ça même chose.
