We end the week on another Friday strip that has Elly criticize Lizzie for only wanting to eat because she's bored only to turn around and fill a dull hour watching Mike warm the bench with food.

(Strip Number 1257, Original Publication Date, 19 February 1988)

Panel 1: When Lizzie asks for a hot dog, Elly reminds her that she just ate.

Panel 2: She then tells Lizzie that she's just eating because she's bored and that's a bad habit to get into. Lizzie meekly says "Oh" in response.

Panel 3: She then asks Elly what she does when there's nothin'else to do.

Panel 4: She gets her answer because we find Elly in the canteen buying two hot dogs and asking the woman behind the counter to throw on the works.

Summary: Between eating out of boredom and gorging herself on leftovers, it's not much of a stretch to call Elly a cautionary example as regards bad eating habits.
