Mary Worth 753

Oh, Mary, you just can't help yourself can you. Actually, I don't have much to say about this strip; it's just that it has been so long since we've enjoyed a good meal at the Bum Boat, that I needed to post an entry for old time's sake. So many memories. Oh, and look, they've got a new menu, with a drawing of some sort of boat on it I think. Very nice. But I wish they hadn't removed the appetizers; they used to serve the very best spinach-artichoke dip.

I think we're going to witness another Jeff & Mary disagreement similar to when Mary was hanging with one of the Amalfi Brothers -- Jeff is going to tell Mary she: 1) can't fix every bloomin' person's problems, and 2) should spend more time with him. Mary will disagree. They'll fight, make up, and go sailing. It will take 3 months' time.

Lookee what I found, Wanders, a less than happy Bum Boat customer from Mary Worth ages ago, or was it months ago?

I won't order the vegetables at the Bum Boat.

Mary is psychotic.

If you owned a restaurant and your most regular customers were people like Mary and Jeff, people who frequently dine without plates or food, but order a glass of wine (I'm just guessing that's what the blood-colored liquid is) and then sit and talk for three or four days, I think you'd put the wine list up front, too. And mark those prices way up!

I love l'atmosphère française at Le bum boat, with the acute accent charmingly on the second e: Entreés.

Has Mary ever had a good, loving relationship with a man? I've only been reading for about a year, so I may have missed some mention of a former husband or a long-term secret relationship with Mick Jagger.

@ hia5 - Le Bateau de Les Fesses?
Le Bateau de Clodo?

My God, in panel one: is that a candle, or a small suitcase nuke going off?

Is this the part where Dr. Jeff fawns all over Mary, thus enabling her meddling disorder?

Bonnie? will be dressing like Mary within the week, mark my words.

Stay solid, Bonnie?! Don't let Mary's hypnotic voice sway you!

The sailboat's nice, I guess, but I miss the swordfish. Are we going to start seeing this new logo on everyone's t-shirts?

The Bum Boat, she ain't what she used to be! The atmosphere was casual, and gravity was the law.

Mary is talking about people getting into bad situations, but her gesture says, "I'm just tickled to death!" This disparity is disturbing.
