We started off the week with Elly not wanting to tell Annie that pile-high helpings of organic food are just as fattening as pre-processed crud. This tells me we might be in for a week of Elly fretting about her own imaginary bulk.

Nope. Just Annie telling an outdated joke about those crazy health-nuts at pretty much the same time aerobics went mainstream.

Panel 1: As she and Elly look at a book called "Eat Thin", she suggests that they try this new-fangled diet. I knew that she was supposed to be the traditionalist housewife but talking like a grizzled 1890s prospector is pushing it.

Panel 2: As Annie goes to pick up her child, Elly reads the diet: watercress, celery, spinach, poached fish, boiled chicken and plain yoghurt. It should be noted that this sort of diet had been around longer than either of them.

Panel 3: Elly then says this this is an award winning diet and wonders why.

Panel 4: Annie says it's because anyone who actually has the inner strength to follow this to the letter deserves one.

Summary: Depriving oneself of fatty foods is a big, fat sacrifice.
