The one where Elly does what she always does: politely refuse offered food only to resort to panicked gorging when no one is looking.

(Original Publication Date, 14 March 1991)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Elly politely decline when Connie offers her some finger sandwiches. While I ruin things by wondering who she's trying to kid, I do acknowledge her at least trying to obey the forms.

Panel 2: We see the same thing happen when Ruth offers her something to eat.

Panel 3: We next see Elly looking to see if anyone is paying any attention.

Panel 4: Since no one is, we see her engaged in rather panicky gorging.

Summary: This puts me in mind of the most disturbing strip about dieting Lynn ever came up with:

for a rather obvious reason.
