Mary Worth 254

I can't tell if this is Mary Worth's thought balloon, and the thought balloon is thinking of the Bum Boat, or if this is the fish on the wall's thought balloon, and the thought balloon is thinking about Mary and her really, really tall refrigerator.

Today's Full Strip

No wonder Mary eats out all the time if all she has in her freezer is a pack of shrimp, a box of vegetable and a box of green.

Jeff looks completely trashed in the flashback circle. Still, one supposes he would have to in order to tolerate a dinner punctuated by Mary's poison-tongued gossiping and spiteful, petty vindictiveness.

When Mary succumbs to food-poisoning from her 3 year old frozen shrimp Jeff will be able to save her by prescribing a wider course of antibiotics.

The refrigerator isn't tall, she's actually getting weak in the knees thinking about Jeff's bum [boat dinners] and slumping against it.

Mary's "seafood scampi" looks to me like a lump of frozen earthworms. That's all I want to say about that.

Despite Mary's claim about "so many memories," it seems to me that this is exactly the same memory she had before. (Or was that Jeff daydreaming about their chaste and lukewarm dinners together?)

I'm enjoying the fact that today's strip assumes that I'm either stupid or extremely forgetful. "I have memories of the Boat Bum. I have memories of eating there with Dr. Jeff Corey. Remember, reader? You may have forgotten. He's the guy in this flashback bubble. Yeah, I remember eating with him so much that I have to repeat his name and accompany it with his visage."

You can take Mary out of the Bum Boat, but youj can't take the Bum Boat out of Mary.

This recurring thought balloon is so emblazioned into Mary's mind. How many strips has it appeared in now? Too bad that image wasn't plastered on the front page of the Santa Royale news paper.

She Who Meddles is so efficient in the Dark Arts that she has her sacrificial moose entrails delivered frozen in neat little packages.

Or are those her mind-altering earwigs? I can never keep those straight.
