Bother.  I was thinking of Roger and Julia as good examples of nice 
and powerful and happy characters who were also plump.  How could I 
have forgotten the not being allowed marmalade?

Completely outside DWJ, but I did suddenly remember the lovely guy 
Oliver and Randy find when they're out collecting scrap (Four-Story 
Mistake or Then There Were Five?), who's retired so he can fish and 
cook and eat and is perfectly content.  Mr. Titus, is it?  Oliver 
says he wants to be just like him.  I also love the way they're 
playing the game of guessing what people will be like based on their 
names, and get it wrong every time.
