Thelma tells Elly that the reason that she goes to bingo games is to have something to feel guilty about.

(Strip Number 1202, Original Publication Date, 16 September 1987)

Panel 1: After the game concludes, we find ourselves watching Elly and Thelma walking back to her condo; Thelma says it was too bad they didn't win but it was sure fun trying.

Panel 2: She reminds Elly that she doesn't drink, smoke or watch raunchy movies so bingo is the one vice she allows herself.

Panel 3: When you get to be her age, she says, it feels good to have something to feel guilty about.

Summary: Weird. Sad. Depressing. Instead of taking pleasure in it really, she just does it to feel bad about herself.
