Lockhorns Sunday is off to a slow start in Panel One, where Loretta observes a quirk in human nature while Leroy tries to read his newspaper in peace. The pace quickens a bit in Panel Two. Self styled fashion maven Loretta has never trusted Leroy's taste in clothes. While she's deciding on Leroy's sports jacket, she can't resist ridiculing his posture. Things come to a crawl, literally, in Center Panel. The entire pharmaceutical industry, united in a common purpose to harass and annoy Leroy, keeps meticulous records of the Lockhorns' bathroom floor design and manufactures its pills accordingly. In Panel Four, the pace accelerates full force, as Leroy's unwitting lawyer is a dinner guest for the first, and probably the last, time. Leroy's investment of $6 for the Merlot pays off handsomely by providing the perfect segue into a magnificent insult of Loretta's culinary skills. We end up with a bang in Panel Five, where Loretta's insane mother is finally leaving after a lengthy stay. Leroy again has shown himself to be the master of unstated wit.
