Omnia Vincit Amor Et Nos Cedamus Amori

Lockhorns Sunday. Let's present the fun panel by panel.

We begin with Panel One, where Leroy models a pair of trousers in a Long Island department store for Loretta's approval. Assuming the theatrical pose of an arbiter, Loretta seizes the opportunity to insult Leroy in public by implying he's a slob.

In Panel Two, Loretta brags to her neighbor about her psychological prowess in tricking Leroy into doing yard chores by appealing to his vanity.

Center Panel shows us the ridiculous proportions that Loretta's maniacal shopping frenzies have reached. No doubt, she's housebound after having totaled another automobile on her latest excursion to Bloomingdales, but this doesn't stop her from running up Leroy's credit card debts faster than Shopzilla.com can process them.

Panel Four, at first glance, seems ordinary, as Loretta avers her belief in the stereotype that wives spend their lifetimes in futile attempts to change their husbands. However, Leroy dominates the cartoon from backstage with his priceless facial expression in witnessing the young husband looking lovingly at his wife changing a diaper.

Leroy has his riposte in Panel Five. The cocktail party setting enables him to entertain a neighbor with his unique take on Virgil's famous saying. As with any famous saying, Leroy applies it to express the notion that marrying Loretta was a mistake, preferably within Loretta's earshot.

Easter, yes. Lockhorns having fun? Never!

Love the vacant stare of the woman at the Lockhorn's home as Loretta tells her about her power of Leroy.
