Mary Worth 238

Wow. We always knew she was a selfish, acrimonious old dame, but this is just awesome! This is what happens when Mary Worth stops taking her meds. Her true colors come shining through, and she's beautiful, like a rainbow. In honor of today's strip, I've added "True Colors" to the Charterstone Jukebox on the right.

I wonder if Ron Amalfi knows anything about her plans? I don't even want to think about what plans she might have. Heaven help the man.

(By the way, if you haven't read NellieOlsen'sConjoinedTwin's poem in yesterday's comments section, do not miss it. The poem is even better than her name! Positively medieval.)

She made other plans with Ron Amalfi? The guy who's going to be constantly at work -- council meetings, speeches, phone calls, business travel, scarfing Chinese food under the light of his desk lamp at 10 pm? It's been one frickin' day of his plan to work tirelessly for the citizens of Santa Royale, and he's got plans with Mary Worth??? Typical politician.

jvwalt: You're missing the obvious--Mary will simply have to take poor, overworked Councilman Ron a late supper or two as he works his fingers to the bone for the good citizens of santa Royale. And she will be driven to the council offices late in the evening by none other than Dr, Jeff, who will dutifully wait in the car while Mary and the Councilman enjoy each other's dinner "companionship".

Oh, Mary...why? Why continue to torment poor dear Jeff like this? Why take your revenge this far? Wouldn't it be so, so much better if you'd just accept his sincere groveling and go to the Bum Boat with him? And, even if you can't do that, why, why, WHY, Mary, go on a date with Ron Amalfi?! We're talking about the guy who got in fist-fights with his brother over his dying mother's hospital bed...his bank account can't be THAT hefty, can it?

Oh, Mary...how far you've fallen. How very, very far...

Date them both, Mary! Two inheritances are better than one, and meanwhile, when one of them is too psychologically bled out for you to feed on anymore, you can let them recuperate while you switch over to feed on the other! The situation is ideal for a woman of your ... needs ...

Ethel Mertz,
Good one! Ted is saying "Mary won't you help me save the oceans?"

Anonymous: Date them both? That's how Drew Corey ended up in Vietnam!

Actually, I don't think she's going to go on a date with Ron. I think she's resolved to tell Ron that she can't see him anymore. It's the little suprise twist that Karen Moy doesn't think we see coming. Yawn.

She already made other plans that she can't break?? She broke her plans with Jeff quickly enough. That poor fool.

anon---Mary will most certainly NOT help the oceans! They lack the ability to hear! No way she'd waste a breath of her sacrosanct meddling bluster on THEM! But she would quickly turn her radar on to Ted's rug. "Ted, there seems to be a dead animal on your head. Do you want to talk about it? I'm here for you..."
