I'd heard that today's official foob would feature Mike, Phil, and an Elly gobsmack. I wanted to make a reference to that, but not seeing the strip, I had no way to know what Mike and Phil would be wearing--hence the wardrobe change Phil suggests in the last panel.
So, Lynn appears to be doing another iteration of the Phil-Connie storyline that she did prematurely during Christmas 2008/New Year's 2009 and seemed to wrap up back in February. Then she probably realized she has to bring them together again if she wants to reprint the "Connie chases after Phil by going to Montreal" arc. So in honor of that SNAFUiness is a repeat of the January 2, 2009 art, but with shiny new dialogue.
