Lockhorns Sunday! It is clear in Panel One that Loretta is mocking Leroy over his perceived illiteracy. It is not clear what Leroy is holding, what seems to be a rectangular object with a square and a circle on it. Leroy is even grumpier than usual when behind the steering wheel of an automobile, a fact Loretta comically laments to her neighbor in Panel Two. In Center Panel, the bathroom scale uses humor to chide Leroy about his weight. Loretta's smirk suggests that she may have had something to do with this. In Panel Four, it is perfectly understandable that Leroy cannot distinguish between Loretta's attempts at making glaze and plastic wrap that Loretta doesn't bother to remove. The best is saved for last in Panel Five, set in another Levittown cocktail soiree. Leroy is only too happy to point out Loretta's incongruities to his neighbor, who, unlike most of Leroy's interlocutors, actually shows a trace of interest.
