Mary Worth 736

I'm so glad you called. I've missed Ernie's sombrero.

What the heck? This is literally the fourth time we've seen this exact picture, although this time a little White-Out has removed the Mexican statues. I am DYING with curiosity. What is in that apartment that is so horrifying even the Great Joe Giella refuses to draw it?

Today's Full Strip

Hoarder! Hoarder! It may take weeks to render a drawing of the stacks of stuff B?BJ! has piled all over the apartment.

Boots, many dresses for "someones" wedding, and a ton of enpty QVC boxes. I will also bet there are more than a few dirty take out containers from Three Trees and The Bum Boat. No wonder Mary looks up when she slices her bannanas, as she is wondering where the stench is coming from.

So! Is this story over yet?

Maude Findlay said...

I wonder when the big reveal of the Johnson's condo will be? I'm trembling with anticipation, just thinking about it. I wonder if perhaps Ernie had an uneasy, restless feeling, and is now staying with some guy he met on Facebook?

This is really turning out to be a treat. It's just oozing with possibilities, and I have a feeling when BJ's? apartment is revealed, it will be well worth the wait. Nothing like fresh peach pie to cancel out the stink of rotting McDonald's food left under a pile of Maisey's boxes.

I just hope this storyline doesn't fall flat on its face like the recent Apartment 3G Bobbie one.

Compulsion to help vs. compulsion to hoard: WHO WILL LEAVE THE STEEL CAGE ALIVE??

PS - I am not exaggerating when I say that new banner is dangerous. I was drinking water when I first saw it and felt it going down the wrong way fast. Especially when my eyes spotted Mary and The Napkin.

There should be a warning on it!

Maggie, I think you just gave TLC an idea for a new show! Just think of it as an ''Odd Couple'' for the new millennium. Just stick a real life Felix Unger/Mary Worth in a sloppy hovel with a real life Oscar Madison/B?BJ! and watch the fireworks.

Oh I thought that Bonnie would be Oscar and Mary,Felix. lol
So today's panel confirms that Ernie has left Bonnie because of her problem. He is not away on a work trip. I do think that Bonnie is in extreme denial about her addictions. I can't wait to see what happens. But this is Worthiverse so I am sure I will be waiting a very long time. lol.

Mary better bring her own forks with the peach pie.I have a feeling that B?B?J?'s cutlery isn't too clean.

The 4/23 strip is "a few days later" but Mary is still in her kitchen wearing the same get up she had on when she was slicing that tube of cookie dough. I think Mary's been on some sort of speed-fueled baking binge in her apartment for this "few days". She bakes, makes phone calls to all her neighbors to feel them out as to any crises they may be having that may be solved by baked goods and prying. (Not that she needs the baked goods as a pretense for prying...this is just a particular behavior she exhibits when she's on one of these streaks...incessant baking, snorting lines of cream of tartar off of that curious stool and wandering glassy-eyed around Charterstone at 3 a.m. with pies.)

Story over? What story?

Vicki (loves custard pie) said...

Is that really a peach pie? It doesn't look anything like a pie. It looks rather like a...sombrero! And it has bananas in it. So, yeah.

@Maggie: LoL!!! :)

From the very odd aerial perspective, I'm fairly sure we're seeing this through Ernie's eyes. In other words, he's dead.

Robert said...

Can't wait to see strips featuring Bonnie? barring Mary from entering her apartment, as Mary tries peering over shoulder into the abyss. I have a feeling, though, we're going to be terribly disappointed when the apartment's hoarded status is finally revealed. This, after all, is a strip that declared children would be scarred forever by viewing a poster of a babe in a modest one-piece bathing suit.

Maude Findlay said...

Don't forget, this strip also has pretty high standards of neatness- remember how Wilbur's beds looked like tablecloths spread on a table? Forget about bouncing quarters off the bed, you could probably bowl on them! Bonnie's ''hoarding'' will probably be seen as a few stray boxes, some mail on the kitchen table, and maybe a jacket draped over a chair. In the immortal words of Bette Davis...What a dump!

4/23: While the windows have been blabbermouths, apparently the Johnson's? door can only stand there mutely, thinking bitter, bitter thoughts about marriage. At least it has a tumbleweed rolling by in the hallway, for entertainment value two orders of magnitude greater than the actual plot itself.

And oh! Peachy pie! Is there no meddling excursion you cannot make easier..?
