    I know Elly’s a girl, but she looks like a regular doughboy.

    No mom with two young children ever gets much time for sitting. Picking up toys alone is worth dozens of deep knee bends, and who needs free weights when you’ve got “Mommy, I’m tired. Carry me.”

    Elly’s friend looks like a grownup Elizabeth along with the facial expressions. Yes, I know that when Elizabeth grows up she will be depicted differently.

    “Let’s Get Physical” was the #1 hit of the year back in 1982, and I am sure it was still popular in 1984 when this comic strip was published. At the time, comic strips regularly made fun of the aerobics exercise craze. This was probably not the only comic strip on the comics page making fun of it back then. Now, I am sure this is the only comic strip making fun of aerobics and Olivia Newton John in today’s newspaper.
