Mary Worth Adventures #430

It just wouldn't be an interesting story if a dysfunctional elderly rage-aholic didn't make a move on Mary Worth. Let's face it, when Toby had her identity stolen, no one picked up on Mary Worth, and that story wasn't interesting at all. It's a formula I'll never get tired of and hope to see it many more times.

And thank you, Mary, for reiterating the FREEDOM of ice skating once again. It's the greatest freedom of all. It's better than the freedom of walking, or the freedom of biking, or even the freedom of retiling the kitchen floor.

So is Frank some geriatic dad like Tony Randall?

Mary has spent the past 4 months with Frank and hasn't mentioned Jeff?

Your word verification is making me laugh -- ohole.

Anon, it has only been three days in the Worthiverse, which travels through time at a different pace than we do.

Carol, that is such an excellent point. The last thing Mary needs is a daughter the age of her great grand-children.

I have to say that I am totally blown away by the turn of events in the storyline these last couple of days. Senior citizens strapping on the ice skates "for old times sake" ??? Frank putting the move on Mary??? I didn't see it coming! I love it!!

Goodness, Wanders, watch what you say; the thought of Mary reproducing is nightmare-inducing for some (read: all) of us.

Also, reading today's comic really improves if you play that Ice Castles song while reading. Or maybe "Wind Beneath My Wings."

Frank, may I be frank with you? You have been SPURNED!!! And I would caution you--do not send ROSES to Mary! Her last abusive, would-be suitor ended up at the bottom of a very deep canyon amidst a pile of twisted metal and broken glass. Trust us, it wasn't pretty. I'm just sayin'.

Meanwhile, Jeff just waits and waits and waits, without one word from Mary!

I liked Mary's shout-out to Protopopovo! "Hey, Proto, who's 'ice, ice, baby' now, huh?"

"You know, Frank, after spending an indeterminate amount of time helping your daughter deal with the damaged wrought to her by your years of abuse and neglect, I'm going to have to say no to spending the rest of my life with you.
No, really...it's not you. It's me."

"Mary Worth Adventures #430"

Aren't you stretching the definition of the word 'adventures' to the breaking point? "Mary Worth's Aimless Shamblings Across the Face of the Earth" might be slightly more accurate.

Nothing is better than the freedom of retiling the kitchen floor. Nothing. Nor more important - check out the Bill of Rights if you doubt me.

And I understand that Frank is being sought for crimes against humanity, with the world's ugliest sweater paired with those Homer Simpson-blue slacks. I can't wait to see him in the docket in the International Criminal Court.
