Mary Worth 288

We should be grateful each day for the blessings in our lives. Today, I'm especially grateful that when Toby imagines her husband naked, she only thinks about him from the neck up.

Today's Full Strip

I'm sorry but my suspension of disbelief cannot cope with the concept that anybody is able to feel anything other than contempt and hatred towards Ian Cameron.

Does not compute! Does not compute!

Not that Toby's Stockholm Syndrome isn't compelling, but isn't there anyone else we could check in with while we're waiting for her total financial ruin to manifest itself? And how much could she possibly have paid for that stupid DVD? She's talking like she produced the documentary herself.

Also, her magazine now appears to be called Romance. What a letdown.

shandyowl said...

yes mollie, romance is always a let-down. -sigh-

I love how Karen Moy seems to think that placing an exclamation point at the end of the most boring sentences possible creates excitement in this strip. Yesterday, it was "...and dismisses an unknown charge on it!" Today, "I'll pay this credit card bill to get it out of the way!" Tomorrow, "I have to blow my nose!"

Ian's birthday suit is something I will NOT be making.

She's talking like she produced the documentary herself.

Mollie: Guess that's how Ian's DVD made "a small dent" in her checking account! [The Camerons don't have a joing checking account? How new school!]

I want to thank Ms. Moy for planting a Pet Shop Boys earworm in my brain..."What have I...What Have I...What have I done to deserve this?"wtzovkxd

I'm with Wanders and Tina! Thank God the nude depiction stops at the neck line! I don't know what we did to deserve that protection! Thank the Good Lord Above! How ya like them apples?! Amber!

Come now, Toby...I know Ian's beard is awesome, but seriously, he's also a pompous, overbearing jerk. Not even that cool of a beard can atone for that...

Or was that really what you meant there? Was that "He's worth it" line actually supposed to mean "A cheap documentary on Scotland is all he's worth," and the "What did I do to deserve him?" line actually "What did I do to deserve such a terrible, terrible husband?"? Because that I could understand...

Just the hint of Ian's naked shoulders is worse for the system than licking a wall socket.

Unfortunately, I'm one of those people that must, without choice, take the merest suggestion of an image and visualize the full-blown realization immediately. All of sudden, there was Chinbeard skin. I was unable to stop at the neckline. It was mid-morning before I blacked out, and awoke only a few minutes ago, nearly midnight. Moy, don't you EVER do that again. I'm not kidding. Fear the Mertz.

And, Toby? Ever Heard of Karma? Apparently (probably) you performed a wholly heinous act in your past (probably at a kegger during your freshman sorority years, which you tried but could not remember during your Walk of Shame), and Ian has been your reward. It's sad that you're too stupid to grasp that cosmic joke.

ethel mertz yes, it was a surprise to find that Ian is uncircumcised.

The line "What did I ever do to deserve him?" can, of course, be interpreted in a number of ways. It might mean that she's daffy over the moon for Chinbeard. It could also be a shriek of despair from the seventh circle of Hell.
