In today's strip, Elly tells John that she knowingly baked more cupcakes than her dieting guests were willing to eat in order to not disappoint them by denying them the temptation.

(Strip Number 486, Original Publication Date, 20 October 1983)

Panel 1: As John helps himself to a cookie, he tells Elly that he hasn't the blindest idea why she and Anne are baking so much for their upcoming sales party.

Panel 2: The reason, as he points out, is that he believes that most, if not all, of the guests would be an a diet of some sort. Elly agrees with this assumption.

Panel 3: She then explains that they'd be disappointed were they denied the right to be forced to resist temptation.

Summary: I wonder how many women will write in to agree with this strip. My guess is anywhere from a carload to a trainload.
