Snarky Candiru2

Now that we're at the exercise class, Elly uses bad world play to tell the instructor that she simply cannot keep up with the rest of the class.

(Strip Number 589, Original Publication Date, 9 April 1984)

Panel 1: We join the so-1980-and-late exercise class already in progress as the instructor tells her charges "TWIST-TURN-TWIST-TURN AND JUMPIG JACKS TO 16....NOW, CAN-CAN!!"

Panel 2: Having noticed that one of the garishly-dressed cylinders isn't firing, Drill Sergeant Buffy tells Elly "This is can-can, Mrs Patterson....keep it up!!"

Panel 3: A gasping Elly says that she can't-can't.

Summary: The interesting thing about this is that much like Michael with the trumpet, Elly eventually gives up on this class because she can't allow herself to think that she actually can can-can.
