Mary Worth 539

Just think how Lawrence's career as a World Famous Lecturer would be destroyed if the thousands of people who pack his Venues had any idea he was married to a complete psychotic who skips town everytime she feels internal conflict about having children. I sure hope she doesn't show up while he's at the lecturn wowing the crowd with tips on making their downline grow!

Today's Full Strip

Lawrence looks different everytime I see him?

He sounds like a motivational speaker. His mantra is "I am good enough,I am smart enough, and doggone it people LIKE me!"

Fabulous--now we can expect Lawrence to run for Congress.

Is that finally a minority character in the front row of Lawrence's audience? Looks like an African-American man or woman with an edgy haircut... or is is just another boring, bald, white guy in a suit?

With everyone in the audience washed in tones of new shirt cardboard, it is hard to tell.

When I saw the strip today it took a split second to recognize that it was Lawrence and not a Ken doll.

...with gray hair, of course.

I'm not surprised that Lawrence's world-famous lectures are composed entirely of platitudes.

Either Moy's in the bathroom or there is some very heavy forshadowing going on here.

Del continuing to be on the plane has got to mean something is going to happen on the plane. Could it be turbulance just like in her marriage? A movie, just like at Charlie's? Dinner, just like at Mary's (though there is no dinner "just like at Mary's). I'm still betting on a plane crash.

And finally we get to see Lawrence at work. I'm not sure what world Mr. World Famous Lecturer is from, but it's got to be one of the minor ones..maybe like Pluto.

The poor slob can't even get a teleprompter and he's speaking to a cast of 10's. Is that his whole speach on the lecturn? Did they have to move additional chairs from the classrooms into the cafeteria for the overflow crowd? Does the blond in the front row have "I love you" written on her eyelids. Why are those 2 in the middle grabbing their crotches?

This ones jammed packed if you just read between the lines. Ooops time for my meds!

(waiting for my pills) Oh!! And isn't that Clark Kent on the far left side?..yes...right there...3 seats down from the lesbian.

In one week, Lawrence will still be giving a lecture in one panel, while Mary Worth has the same look of worry on her face she has exuded for most strips during the entire five-year length of the current storyline.

We musn't wish for a plane crash b/c Chester is in seat 4B, remember!

Del needs to take that headband out once in awhile, or her hair will get thin from the constant tension. Maybe it has even embedded itself into her skull which explains her being so psycho!

Chester(reading the skymall catalog) said...

Lawrence is a pretty dull motivational speaker. The poor audience can barely stay awake! Maybe its the sleep inducing grey lighting.

Lawrence must have pretty good eyesight, standing so far away form the podium and his ONE PAGE script.

Let's hope that D arrive at the lecture hall, slips into her yellow halter top and liven things up with a few numbers from "South Pacific!

And Vicki, thanks for watching out for me. This is one bumpy flight.

ok. I was confused and went back to June 10 to check this fact. Lawrence is described there as (at the time he hooked up with Del) a brilliant young professor of philosophy. I'm not sure what he's talking about to his hip young crowd of 60's advertising execs, but it sure doesn't sound like any regular philosophy. At least Charley has his priorities straight. I'm also unsure as to what we are to suppose Deliah has found of value in visiting charley's sordid den of booze'n'chips'n'porn'n'rogers'n'hammerstein. Does one rotten apple mean that all non-Lawrence men are worthless scum? In the U-moy-verse annything is possible.

1 800 Chester said...

Does Lawrence charge for these lectures? Do people pay to see him speak? Does he serve snacks? Give away door prizes? Hyptnotize them? Does he have an 800 number with operators standing by? Com'on Moy! We need details!!!

I think the plane is going to crash- and Delilah will be the sole survivor. When Lawrence rushes to her side, some badly drawn doctor that looks eerily like Aldo Kelrast will inform him that Delilah is in the family way. Meanwhile, back at Charterstone, Mary is shocked to find Charley in full Gypsy Rose Lee drag, reenacting the ''Let Me Entertain You'' scene from ''Gypsy''. After the initial shock, Charley informs Mary that it's all for the annual Charterstone talent show. The two share a good laugh, and head upstairs for some salmon squares and to fit Toby and Ian for their stripper costumes.
