In this strip, Zippy passes by the Little Orchids Thai Restaurant while having on a conversation with his friend Griffy. Griffy wishes for the old days of writing comic strips. Griffy liked how olden strips were funny and quickly forgotten. Zippy compares forgetability to today's modern day Vine videos with their short time limit, though he jokes that maybe even 6 seconds is too long. Finally, Griffy recognizes that today's pop culture web is replacing the print media of the past and perhaps he should learn Flash technology to keep up. Zippy replies that he'd like his polka dots enhanced realistically in Flash.

Interestingly, Bill Griffith used the same basic cartoon strip drawings here as he did in an earlier Zippy strip, with the addition of some sweat drops around Zippy's Head in the first pane.
