Mary Worth 321

Sheesh... the paper is completely blank! If you're going to write a three-month-long public service announcement, don't leave out the most critical piece of information. As I said, sheesh. Well, as my own little act of public service, I'll pick up where Mary Worth has dropped the ball. Click here to report phishing.

Oh, and by the way, Toby's gotten at least one credit card statement since she was scammed, so if Enormoushop hasn't figured it out yet, they aren't worth doing business with. Always use a reputable online company to process your transactions. That's why I like PayPal; they act swiftly to put an end to this sort of thing. If only they could act swiftly to put an end to this story! Maybe if you make a donation to this blog using PayPal, it would help.

Today's Full Strip

I feel totally cheated, where's the "you mean ... you mean ... it's ALL MY FAULT???" Toby's moment of self-realization was the payoff I was waiting for!!

Let's not forget that Ian STILL doesn't know and his finding out will add roughly 2 more months to this plot. And, "It's a dangerous world out there?" You want danger? Today's Apt. 3-G is chock full of danger. If Toby's world can't bear the danger of one internet transaction gone awry, I can't even think of what might happen should Ian develop a "dope" habit a la Margo's boyfriend.

I can't wait until the next exciting storyline, where Ian accidentally puts expired milk in his coffee. Judging by the pace of the current storyline, I think we can look forward to a pretty nasty bit of tummy trouble for Ian, come the holidays!

That sounds exactly on target, maude, and it could make for a very educational (yet riveting, as always) 4 month PSA. Everyone knows that we all must penny-pinch these days, but there is danger to being too thrifty, such as purchasing expired dairy products for $.30. Wait - does Toby know what the word "economy" means?

Wanders, where's the alternate text!

At least we can move on to Toby's subsequent divorce and can get into a storyline where she moves into a women's shelter or a cheap motel.

Give credit to the Bank of Santa Royale. They send their credit card statements DAILY, as soon as the fraud occurred, they hand type their statements and wisk them to the cardholder. Perhaps they hired Vera to be their quick as a whistle typist?

Toby looks bored, Is she trying to search for other SCOTLAND dvd's, without raising the attention of the fraud expert? Toby, will you ever learn? Or is she on WWW.PLACEBOOK.COM, leaving nasty feedback on Marys page?

"It's a dangerous world out there," Terry remarked ironically as her face began to melt, revealing... what? If Terry is a drone from the future programmed to prevent Toby from ever reproducing... well, I would be delighted. Did someone say payoff?
