And I'm wrong; Elly and Annie are dissing Connie behind her back.
Panel 1: We're in the kitchen and the two creeps are drinking coffee. That vile cretin Annie asks how Connie is. Is she still desperate and still manhunting? This is, of course, none of her lousy business.
Panel 2: Instead telling Annie to stuff her superior attitude up her fat ass, simpering idiot Elly points out that Connie is a close friend and she would never, ever talk about her behind her back.
Panel 3: That would be gossiping and she hates to gossip.
Panel 4: If, on the other hand, they were to agree to call gossiping sharing a human interest story, it would be okay.
Summary: What we have here is two failures whose lifetime of ineptitude deprive them of the right to pass judgment on anyone getting together to diss a third moral idiot. Lovely, huh?
