Mary Worth Adventures #452

There's a reason for that Adrian: It's because only slime-balls talk that way. After 12 years of medical school, and an intense career in cardiology, you haven't had much time to hang out with slime balls. But after spending 22 minutes on the wicked, wicked Interwebs, you've fallen head over heals in love with one.

I have to say I'm enjoying this story. I notice that Ted and Adrian have already appeared in this blog more times than Terry Bryson did, and yet, Terry Bryson's 14 appearances were enough to kill a stronger man than me.

So, the karma chain is, Mary abuses Jeff, Jeff abuses Adrian, and Adrian abuses Adrian using Ted as proxy?

I am confused as to the particulars.

STILL with the face touching!?! That's gotta be one of the first signs of complete creepy-ness. That and calling somebody "Queenie"
Do I feel sick from spinning around and around the table at diner or is it because of the way these two act together?

More black haired people (relatives) with blue highlights in panel one. AND, how is it that Adrien never questioned the origin of her cute nickname until now?

How odd that Moy is so down on the Internet. The Internet is practically the only place anyone reads "Mary Worth" anymore, and actual fandom has arisen on this site and the Comics Curmudgeon. She bites the hand that feeds her.

Ted has the cheesiest lines ever! What's he going to say next?

A) ''Are your feet tired? Cause you've been running through my mind all night!''

B) ''Did it hurt, when you fell from heaven?''

C) If I could rearrange the alphabet, I would put U and I together.

Darn! I was wrong. I was convinced that in panel 2 Ted was going to explain "Because I'm a pompous ass transported through time from the 1950s"

Of course no one has ever said those things to you before, Adrian, with your over conditioned hair, orange raincoat and kicky scarf. People are afraid to go near you.

I have to agree with
Maconmemad, this story is getting pretty gross, with the face touching and the sappy "Queenie" stuff.

These two have the grossest relationship I have ever seen in a comic strip.

Please bring back Terry Bryson of the starship Enterprise!

I looked up the word "sophomoric" in the dictionary and sure enough, there was a picture of Moy.

The last time I heard of anyone called "Queenie" was in a drag bar at 4AM. That's why Ted doesn't want to get married!

Vicki said...

Uh oh. They're in front of a JEWELRY store and Toby Cameron's stolen credit card #'s are right there in Ted's pocket!!!

Also, in real life I have an adult daughter named Adrianne (which is one of the FEMALE spellings of the name, btw. "Adrian" is the masculine spelling.) Anyway, when she was FOUR YEARS OLD I cut her hair exactly like Ted's Adrian. And it was real cute at four, but doctor "Queenie"...you need to grow up!!

Perhaps they are both time travellers; in the second panel, Adrian looks very much as my mother did in 1956.

BaHa said...

In the first panel, is Ted's leg dangling from Queenie's purse strap?

I have a feeling that we are not reading a comic strip, but the storyboards for an upcomning Lifetime movie. Starring the girl from Punky Brewster in her first dramatic role.

I looked up the word 'soporific', and there again, a picture of Moy!


"soporific (adj.): Causing or tending to cause sleep..."

Ahh, so Moy is a sophomoric, soporific writer. I can think of another word beginning with "S" that applies to her work.
