Snarky Candiru2

Today's really dated strip has the drill sergeant aerobics teacher berate flaccid suburban matrons for not being Solid Gold dancers. Nowadays, she'd rip into them for not successfully channeling Miley Cyrus.

(Strip Number 4453, Original Publication Date, 28 November 1984)

Panel 1: Today's single-panel wonder has the aerobics teacher tell various flaccid white suburban matrons to really get into the spirit of Michael Jackson. The alleged joke is that the zombie-like lurching about we see is not the result of choreography but of strained muscles.

Summary: This rather dated little thing seems to be an attempt to pander to every woman who wonders why she can't get into the spirit of Bobby Curtola. In any event, I'm too busy wondering if Elly is supposed to get chemically castrated, sleep in a hyperbaric chamber and OD on the john at age fifty to care.
