The one in which Elly is jovially singled out as being some kind of horror freak for giving birth at her age.

(Original Publication Date, 12 March 1991)

Panel 1: Judging from her vaguely horrified reaction to Connie's remark "You didn't think that we'd let you get away without a celebration, did you?", it would appear that yes, Elly did think exactly that. We're about to see why.

Panel 2: Things appear to go like they do in the real world when Carol offers her the seat of honour.

Panel 3: Elly then sets up the bad joke by being polite and saying that they needn't have gone to the bother.

Panel 4: We finally get why Elly wants to avoid things like this when a Milborough Mutant Matron says "Of course, we should have! At OUR age, how often do we get to throw one of our friends a baby shower?"

Summary: Tomorrow, Goofytooth and another woman talk about how painful and long and awkward childbirth is so they can provide immoral non-support. Eventually, someone will say that one cannot turn black the cans of thyme. This is why Elly avoids this sort of thing: these people are her friends the same way Lawrence, Brian and Gordo are Mike's.
