Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 26 November 2013

We get another reminder that Elly doesn't quite understand that the reason her muscles cry out in pain is that she's only exercising the ones that allow her to carry ten loads of laundry every day.

(Strip Number 754, Original Publication Date, 27 November 1984)

Panel 1: As Elly wrenches her back out (as indicated by the non-sound effects and pain stars radiating from her back), Lynn dates herself by having Malaria Neutron Bomb's "Let's Get Physical" blaring from the speakers.

Panel 2: As the annoying song blares on about hearing a sex partner's body talk, Elly not only continues to feel the pain of aching muscles, exhaustion from over-exertion has started to overcome her.

Panel 3: As she puts her hand on her lower back, she tells Connie that she wishes that her body would shut up.

Summary: Given that yesterday's notes are all about how the focus of Lynn's severe and crippling dysmorphia has narrowed to her face, I should think that any notes would discuss her alleged dystonia being why she can't really sweat to the oldies. (ETA: Under the 'R'...WRONG!!! She wanted to do a fart joke but the mean adults wouldn't let her.)
