It seems to me that sooner or later Elly will look for someone to blame for her getting "disgustingly fat" and "old before her time". I happen to have a fair idea of who that might be: John, Mike and Lizzie. The stress of pretending to raise two children and worrying about a husband who won't put flatware aware properly, points out that she can't stick to anything and lies to her by saying she's presentable looking is going to be too much to bear soon.

That comes later; right now, Lynn's gotta make things timeless again (and fail horribly to do so) by monkeying with the strip that aprilp_katje parodied last Friday.

Panel 1: We start off with a wheezing, out of breath Elly telling Annie she actually can't believe they're going to keep jogging.

Panel 2: She then asks if she can really see the both of them doing this every day.

Panel 3: Annie replies by saying they've got to do it for a few weeks at the very least.

Panel 4: If they don't, they can't justify spending a hundred and thirty-five each on track suits. It should be noted that thirty years ago, they'd only spent thirty-five. Lynn adjusted the price for inflation because of her inconsistent chronology.

Summary: We might be at the end of this arc and find ourselves dealing with something completely different tomorrow or we might have John show up and say something gratuitously stupid about Elly's looks.

ETA: Here's the latest banner for your viewing pleasure. Lynn's got a book to promote and children to vilify and it shows.
