Mary Worth 755

Another thing couples argue about is who gets to wear the chin napkin. But in a remarkable display of magnanimity, Mary Worth has relinquished the privilege to Jeff.

The issue here is whether Jeff will run out of platitudes before they finish dinner. I guess, if he does, they can always switch to his latest goings-on.

The most boring date in the history of the human race.

"Money is the number one issue..." Did Mary not tell Jeff about the mountains of boxes? I guarantee that if Jeff had heard about the boxes, he won't resort to statistics to keep his part of the conversation going. He would be saying things like, "Fascinating" and "Only clothing boxes... so it doesn't smell or anything?" and "I wonder where that poor chump slept when he was home."

Mary's slick hand gesture in panel 1 so mesmerized me, I missed a guest appearance by Napkin in panel 2! Yay for the best day player since Hospital Hi-Fi!

Who is the two-headed beast hovering near the kitchen?

I've wondered for a while about Jeff and Mary's "relationship".

Is it carnal? Is it chaste - friends only?

I want to know.

@phoebes - It's two-dimensional.

You always know the fish is fresh when it orbits your head until you seize it and bite its throat out.

If that table moves any farther apart, those two will have to continue their conversation via text messages!

@ Robert: Mary gettin' DOWN with her gansta' self!

All along I thought the issue was B?BJ?'s hoarding that was the problem. Now we find out that it was the number one problem among couples, namely money issues, that came between B? and Ernie. I'm so confused.

The Remake-Bonnie-Project has so energized Mary Worth that she is literally growing larger and larger panel-by-panel. Why, her little finger is now the size of Jeff's head, and her own head is almost as large as the two people by the kitchen door. Where will it end? And how will Jeff ever get her out the door of Bum Boat?

Personally, I'm really looking forward to the panel that shows Jeff trying to stuff Mary through the door with Chin Napkin dangling from his face. That would be distracting, I imagine.

Give me that filet of fish. Give me that fish.

I think the Chin Napkin is my favorite character in Mary Worth. I, who use the immortal "I think I'll retile my kitchen tomorrow" as my profile picture in Facebook. What do you think Chin Napkin does during its down times? Or does it go from town to town wipin' chins and solvin' crime?

If whatever was beneath the napkin looked like a human hand, I could forgive or even overlook it. But I feel like we're being introduced to some stumpy invisolimb type of deal and I'm just not that comfortable with it.

I'm actually thinking that it's the floating napkin that retiles the kitchen in its down times. Makes sense to me... at least, as much sense as floating napkins and deciding, on a whim, to retile one's kitchen the very next day. As one does.
