In today's strip, we're reminded that poor, stupid brainwashed Annie honestly thinks that being a stay-at-home mother makes her a worthwhile and useful member of society.

(Strip Number 4607, Original Publication Date, 7 May 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves at the Nichols place watching Elly boast about being excited at the threshold of a new career.

Panel 2: She then says that while working at the library is been great, she might actually finally accomplish something with her life.

Panel 3: She then asks Annie if she has ever thought about having a career; Annie states that she has.

Panel 4: She then disappoints Elly by pointing at her ungrateful, ungovernable savage children and states that she thinks raising kids IS her career.

Summary: The ironic part is that at the end of the day, Annie is the one who wound up with a career while Elly tried to have one but slammed the door shut because it got to be too much of a hassle. That, however, is years away so for right now, Elly can pose like the feminist she never was and look down on Annie for embracing the values she only disagrees with because they aren't working out for her yet.
