In today's strip, about five hundred kids dog-pile on the puck. This leads Elly to ask an asinine question based on her creator's inability to understand sports.

(Strip Number 4274, Original Publication Date, 12 January 1983)

Panel 1: We start things off with the puck making a PA-TWANNNNG noise as it hits the boards.

Panel 2: As it does, what I assume to be Mike says that he's got it only to have probably Lawrence say that he does/

Panel 3: We next see the ref blow his whistle because the players are in a largish heap.

Panel 4: As she sits in the stands in the company of radioactive mutants, Elly asks Girl Professor Flutesnoot if this is what they call 'smothering the puck'.

Summary: It would seem that Lynn finds the idea of small children injuring themselves playing a sport that she hates because it makes them aggressive and less likely to appreciate her endless sacrifices on their behalf as amusing as a refusal to get the jargon right.
