Lynne and 'Mantha are at nudist camp. 'Mantha tells Lynne that she was once offered money to strip. Lynne tells 'Mantha that Mrs Warboys told her that someone once offered her money to put her clothes back on. 'Mantha asks her who would do that. Lynne winks and tells her it was Mr Warboys.

'Mantha does not come to the nudist camp as regularly as Lynne. We can see this as she is displaying tan lines whereas Lynne is tanned all over. Lynne has managed to convince her to come along but 'Mantha is certainly apprehensive. She is not as liberal as Lynne but has agreed to go on the condition that she can have a towel close to hand in case she becomes too embarrassed.

Lynne should be a little bit more sensitive towards her friend. 'Mantha is trying to ease herself into the nudist camp by talking about her previous incidents involving nudity. She tells Lynne about a time when she was offered to strip but Lynne just uses this opportunity to trump 'Mantha. 'Mantha plays along with Lynne's conversation but is starting to look more uncomfortable.

Unless someone has squirted lemon juice in her eye, Lynne's wink suggests that Mr Warboys never offered Mrs Warboys money to put her clothes on. What we don't know is whether Lynne is passing on a little joke told by Mrs Warboys or whether it is her own joke. If it is Mrs Warboys' joke then we would hope that she will acknowledge the creator of the joke. If it is Lynne's joke then it is a personal attack on Mrs Warboys which suggests that Lynne has the opinion that Mrs Warboys' naked body is both repulsive and offensive. Let us hope Mrs Warboys doesn't catch wind of Lynne's joke or there could be a frosty reception at the next cocktail party.


  1. Is lynne having a stroke in the third frame?

  2. It's not unusual to carry a towel at naturist venues. You might for example use it to sit on in the cafe, for hygiene reasons.
