Panel one starts this Archie off on a promising note, and don't tell me you all weren't thinking "Mr. Lodge is a total perv." Panel two, though, is a let-down, although a teacher telling a group of high school boys to "STROKE! STROKE! STROKE!" has got to be worth something.
Whoever draws Archie obviously knows nothing about boating. What in the world are they on? Considering that Mr. Lodge is turned around like a coxswain, you'd think that it's a competitive rowing boat. But the boat looks nothing like the ones they use for crew, and the kids are holding the oars incorrectly (the way they're holding them I wonder how they can get any sort of pull at all).
That oil slick in front of their boat completes my utter confusion.
