(Strip Number 1293, Original Publication Date, 13 May 1988)
Panel 1: Anne tells Elly that unlike her, she's stopped worrying about her shape.
Panel 2: She's tried exercise and dieting and what we see is what we get and Elly or anyone else doesn't like the way she looks, that's tough.
Panel 3: We can't be what we're not and our shapes are as individual as fingerprints. Besides, it's the person inside that really matters anyway.
Panel 4: She then makes a self-effacing comment about how she wishes that she was this smart when she was fourteen and needed to know this.
Summary: The problem with this strip is two-fold. Not only does it go in one ear and out the other, said process is accelerated by Trash Bag Johnny repeating a stupid and hateful crack his arsebucket grandfather made.
