Mary Worth 208

I love it when Jeff stands up to Mary Worth. It's so cute. So pathetically cute. After all these years, he still doesn't know whom he's up against. But he keeps on trying. Allowing Drew to make up his own mind about whether or not to go to Vietnam... Chester the Dog... Now, Ron Amalfi - and that's just this past year. It's adorable.

Mary is:

(a) Preparing to use the kung-fu "pinch grip" to snap Dr. Jeff's vertebrae;

(b) Trying to 'crush his head' a la Kids In The Hall;

(c) Using her ancient Eldritch magicks to amplify her meddling mind control powers through a secret hand gesture;

(d) Preparing to make a shadow puppet of a choking duck on his back

Poor Dr. Jeff. Poor, poor dimwitted Dr. Jeff. First you want to stay in some disease-ridden third world nation until you keel over and die, now you want to go up against the Aldo-killing wrath of a Mary Worth scorned. God help you, child-man.

Anon, all of your suggestions are excellent. However, permit me to give my female take on it. While barking out her righteous indignation, she is also subliminally sending a message of shame about Jeff's probable,um, "shortcomings." I'm sure he won't get it right off. Several months later, Jeff will be wrenched awake late one night by his awful revelation, sobbing and cursing Mary till dawn.

I think the truth is that Mary stole a department store mannekin many years ago and has been arguing non-stop with it ever since.

Who can blame her? They taunt.
