Lynn's Comments: I was hoping the item on the wire looked like a jock strap! When newspapers reduced the size of the comics page, we had much less space in which to make a gag work. Every square centimeter had to count and small details had to be drawn with real care so that they were evident to the reader. I hoped that I'd had enough space in the last panel to include the characters (for expression), the dialogue and the gag. Maybe not!
