Mary Worth 192

This should be interesting. Ron and Richie, never able to enter the same room for more than five seconds without going berserkers on each other, are now going to hug it out. If they can just keep it together until Mother's Day, when Donna revives long enough to see the boys embrace. She will pass in peace, and all because Mary Worth cared enough to meddle and observe, "You shouldn't fight so much. It makes your mother sad."

Mary Worth for Secretary of State! Think what she could accomplish in the Middle East with her tremendous powers of persuasion. Her foreign policy of meddling everywhere would come to be known as the "Worth Doctrine."

So Ron only wears brown tops and Richard only wears red tops.

Every single day of their lives.

Why won't Mary meddle in people's wardrobe choices, where it counts?

If the term "Hug it out, bitch" is used, it will be worth all 200 years this comic has been in publication.

Anon, you've gotten confused. Richie was in brown originally, and Ron in Red. But now Richie is in Red, and Ron is in brown. I know it is confusing, but don't blame the artist; he only draws the pictures. Fifth grader Beatrice Chestnut colors them... she sometimes gets a little mixed up.

This is just a hunch but I don't know if Mary would be the right person to sort out the Middle East. Is she even aware that there are races other than caucasians? And just imagine the chaos when she starts telling Muslims and Hebrews to obey her Christian god...

Wanders: I feel compelled to get to the bottom of this Ron/Rich identity confusion. Work permitting (god forbid I would do anything worthwhile on my own time) I shall attempt to use the Zapruder footage of this storyline to reconstruct events but I fear that I am defeated before I even begin.

@Wanders: I'll need the ref's call on this. Ron/Rich always wore red, while Ron/Rich always wore brown. It's really quite clear.
