One of the most hilarious Mary Worth strips ever. Ever. But that's only because of the ol' arrow-through-the-head gag. That never fails to amuse me.
I've got to hand it to Ron for the smooth way he instantly places all the blame on Richie and gets a cheap dig in at the same time.We all know what is going to happen, but what is the correct term for what Mary is going to do: is it "open a full can of whup-meddle" or "open a full can of meddle-ass"?
Good golly, Miss Molly! Is Richie going to take on both Ron and Mary in the parking lot? Stay tuned...And Mary also neglected to first introduce herself before meddling...O tempora! O mores!
I worry... maybe the physical altercation will begin right there, with Mary getting slammed by a poorly aimed punch. Fistfights between two burly looking men are no place for a delicate old lady.
It's a good thing Mary Worth volunteers at the hospital as a security guard, otherwise who could possibly intervene with these two gorillas? Hospitals never have security. Oh wait. Yes, they do.
I'm glad Mary volunteers at a hospital (one reason being that I volunteer at our city's Friends of the Library, and I don't want to be anywhere near someone like her. But I digress.), since with these two overweight, far-side-of-50 pugilists going after one another in the parking lot, I'm pretty sure that one or both of them is going to be admitted for a heart attack.Maybe they can all stay in Donna's room! Yeah! That's how they could work things out! Make it so, Mary!
I just wanted to tell you, I came here from Comics Curmudgeon and find your writing absolutely hilarious. Awesome job, please don't stop! :)
Is Ron (or is it Richie?) calling his brother out to the parking lot, or Mary??! That's the problem with pronouns.
Thanks anna-bat-sarah. I always appreciate high praise. I wanted to leave a comment on your blog, but couldn't find a way to do it, but I really enjoyed your take on the rape of Dinah, which was a hard story for me to "get" when I re-visited it last fall. Your perspective gave me some great, although wincingly painful, insights.
