Mary Worth 298

Even Mrs. Toby "Victoria" L. Cameron, with her superior and tremendously well reconstructed nose in the air, knows she hasn't moved to Canada, thus proving her point: Bank of Santa Royale is an idiot.

Today's full strip.

I don't think that I moved to Canada...but I should really check with my husband to make sure. Ian? Ian? Of course! He's away at the Gasbags Convention. Maybe I did move to Canada? E-commerce is so confusing. I wish I knew what all this was aboot, eh?

I am officially ready to gouge out my eyes with anything small enough to do the job. This story line is offal. Awful, too.

p.s. I keep posting like this because the firewall at work won't let me log into anything--curses!

It sounds like the Bank of Santa Royale might be missing some smarts too. Maybe Mary's the only one with any brains in the whole town!

Wheelhead: Yes, but look how our curiosity is piqued as to JUST HOW STUPID Toby can be!! I, for one, can’t wait to view the strip every morning when I get up!

This painfully slow storyline has succeeded in allowing us even more ammunition to mock the story and the characters and leaves us to our own devices once again to be creative in fabricating our own storylines. The Enormoushop.com and its spinoff, Pretty Purposes, for example, are just HILARIOUS!!

She says she rarely uses the card - but didn't she just ("just", as in the last 2 months real time) use it to buy gas and lunch? Is this part of the current plot? Things move so slowly that I'm not sure where they start and end.

Please, Toby. Please check out the window to make sure you're not in Canada.

I think it's pretty obvious what's going on here; Ian has finally skipped out on her and moved to Canada, under cover of his hypothetical "conference." Before doing that, however, he used his College Professor smarts to send her a phishing email and steal her credit card number. Gosh, Ian...you are one cruel, cruel chin-bearded man. Almost makes me feel sorry for Toby "The Nitwit" Cameron...

(><). Toby just gets dumber and dumber. How can she be so ignorant? I mean, all she does is sit around all day while her husband brings in the big bucks. You think she'd have gone on the internet once and twice and learned a bit about fraud. I went to enourmousshop.com, I saw the fraud alert.

I'm with Toby on this one. If The Bank of Santa Royale had any sense about them, they would be able to tell that Toby is clearly speaking American and not Canadian.

Don't banks normally ask you if you've been traveling in a foreign country and not just assume that you've up and MOVED there? And really, is there any more boring way for Toby to find out about the fraud than by talking on the phone to her bank? And we get to watch it. Woo hoo!

Haven't moved to Canada yet, but I might after this next election!!
