(Strip Number 10922, Original Publication Date, 29 September 1985)
Panel 1: We find Elly reading an ad for a Weight Watchers-like program and wondering why they can't come up with anything that isn't a before-and-after picture.
Panel 2: Since she won't admit that her real problem is her poor posture, she moans about being so disgustingly fat that she's started to look like the 'before' pictures.
Panel 3: Elly thought-bubbles about how Connie used to come over and nag her about exercising.
Panel 4: She also made her jog once a week and join a fitness club.
Panel 5: She was the one who really pushed her to get into shape.
Panel 6: Elly then thought-bubbles about how since Connie moved, she herself hasn't been motivated to do anything physical.
Panel 7: Lardarse then dunks a doughnut into a cup of coffee.
Panel 8: As she pattersnarfs, Elly decides that if she gets fat, it's all on Connie for not coming over and nagging her.
Summary: What bothers me about this punchline is that Elly doesn't want to admit that Mike gets blaming other people for his own screw-ups from her. If she wants the kids to take responsibility for their actions, she'd better start setting a better example than this.
