Mary Worth Adventures #439

This is excellent! We'll get to hear the Vietnam story all over again. Plus Adrian will appreciate her father hitting up Ted for donations before the waiter has even brought their drinks.

Today's Full Strip.

the look on Mary's face in panel one is pure indulgence: "Oh, Jeff, we understand your monomania. Tell us that story -AGAIN!"

Mary seems more interested in the choice of salad dressings on her menu than Jeff's blabbering about Vietnam

Mary has beaten Dr. Jeff down so low that he doesn't have enough self esteem to make eye contact with anybody. He's just staring into is drink that he is holding with both hands. And Mary approves!

Today I'm caught up in two items: First is that strange picture behind Mary. Is it a desert scene, a photo from Mars, or what? And second, do you see that Mary has a plain menu without "Golden (whatever) Corridor" written on it? Perhaps it's a special menu for people who don't follow the dress code?
That look on Mary's face surely speaks volumes!

Maybe Mary gets the special "Meddlers Menu",, with the prices blacked out. She hasn't paid for a meal in years anyway!

And one more thing, regarding Santa Royale, the economy must be preety bad there, as Waiter McSnooty has to work at four different restaurants just to make ends meet.

Jeff is looking quite youthful. I'm wondering if he hasn't had some work done.

How about this?
"Why Jeff, I'd love to help in that fund raising effort. I'm a bit of a"money man" and I could create a special account the funds could be deposited in...then I could watch over them and be sure they are invested wiseley."
Then he could twist the right end of his moustache and
cackle "yaa haa on!" (Dishonest John...PandaGrama will get it)

Sorry, PandaG. It's late and been a long day. I spelled your name wrong and I meant that you would "get" the referrence to the character Dishonest John.

I agree with Anon it looks like Dr. Jeff has had some work done to look youthful! At the very least--Botox, and "Just For Men" to cover the gray. I dunno, though, holding that cup with two hands... shaky nerves are betraying him!
Waiter McSnooty seems to like this gig the most out of his four jobs. He apparently enjoys interjecting himself into the diners' conversations, i.e. his question, "have you ever been to Vietnam?"
