Just the thought of Duffy trying to exercise is good for a laugh. That ton of lard probably would probably break a treadmill or stationary bicycle.
Isn’t he on his second heart now?
Wait a minute. Didn’t he go to a fat farm to exercise years ago ?
Only if FRANK readers are mainly long-in-the-tooth boomers or beyond will many of them recognize the
5BX fitness plan & its ancient pamphlet dating from the early 1960s that this Duffy satire is based upon! I only recognize it ’cause my Dad, who’d be 100 next year if he was still alive, had a 5BX exercise program pamphlet when I was a lad. FRANK’s cartoonist is flaunting his elder status here!
For some reason, George Carlin’s words come to mind: “Don’t sweat the petty things (and don’t pet the sweaty things). Ewww — I just grossed myself out.
Sadly, I remember the 5BX !
