Okay - what the heck is Mary drinking? She looks insanely pleased with herself.Looks like we're in for an entire week of Mary recapping Gina's love story. Geez, it sounds even stupider when Mary describes it. Why the hell didn't Gina try to find Bobby before? We had such high hopes for that mob hit morphing into something interesting, but it only got mentioned once.
Thank you, Karen with a K. It all makes sense to me now. When we realize that Mary's coffee cup is always spiked, her homilies and ramblings make sense! Sitting for hours in a diner, patiently listening to a whiny waitress, and then answering with a trite sentence or two -- how could anyone stand that except under the influence of some *coffee creamer* ??
Mary is drinking GatorAde, to give her an energy boost while she runs her victory lap.
Wanders, once again your searching skills are admirable!Karen with a K, your observation is right on. Maybe Mary has a flask in her handbag (easy access to it, it's hanging from the back of her chair). She is insufferable!First panel: Is the couple in the background token Hispanics? Is this Moy's tepid response to readers who have pointed out the overwhelming WASP-ness of this strip?
Just a quick thanks to all the folks who post here and keep the comments family friendly.Some days I am a cranky old fuddy-duddy who needs good laugh. Thankful that I can always find it here.
Mary is demented. I swear...
Panel 1: Female drapery watcher hard at work; great piece of wall art - probably a Vermeer? An additional blue hair joined the patrons since yesterday. Panel 2: The evesdropping blue haired gentleman directly behind Mary is part of that mob KWAK mentioned, having learned Mary's whereabouts in a newspaper comic section, of all places. Note how he changes collars (not shirts) in going from Panel 1 to Panel 2.Thank you Anon for family content comment.
Mary sure as heck isn't going to risk getting married to Jeff.
Mary is worried that others will not risk seeing how damn wunnerful she really is!
Any day now, we should see a ''Meanwhile... '' Any day now. I hope it's a Wilbur story. That'll mean we're good till at least Easter.
Is Toby just filler or will the next story involve her vapid little brain again? I remember Toby and Mary power walking together. I could totally see the two of them picking that up again and maybe stumble upon an adventure. Or a corpse. But sitting in Restaurant drinking more beverages is pretty exciting too!
I wonder what room Toby is tiling now? While I appreciate a good Wilbur story as much as the next Worthiversian, I would like to see more of Toby and Professor Chinbeard. Unless she's tiled him into the wall or something.I would like to see Adrian and her helmet hair neglecting more patients, just so we can catch up with Hospital Hi-Fi.--Beagle VetP.S. I bet that Mary also has Metamucil in her beverage.
Meanwhile, Bonnie? Bonnie Johnson? is regressing, sitting in front of the Home Shopping Network, maxing out her credit cards and eating Kelk right out of the box.
@heydave- For Bonnie's sake, I hope it's New & Improved Diet Kelk, now with fiber.
I think Mary is channelling a little Yoda as well ("Do or do not--there is no try").On a side note, I'm really disappointed my kids got no Kelk or salmon squares while trick or treating. I was really looking forward to sneaking a few into my lunch today.
We have seen those Mary Worth eyes before. When I first saw Josh's entry four years ago, I laughed so hard I couldn't breathe. His commentary on this strip just hit my funny bone for some reason. Behold...MW coming back from Vietnam. Compare the crazed look on her face to the one from today:http://joshreads.com/?p=965
I'm betting the next story is Adrian and her cop husband (forgot his name)announcing the impending birth of their first child. Actually, has there ever been a child, muchless a baby, in the Worthiverse?
Sixty years or so ago, Mary was raising her grandchildren. They haven't been seen for quite a while.
What on earth is the pink thing on the side of the blond girl's head? Whatever it's meant to be, it doesn't look like a hair accessory.No secret message today?
looks like its four days to new story so guess you gotta hear the same thing over and over . it would be cool if mary said some other diner hag wanted my help but thats enough waitress saving for this year.
Bonnie? Bonnie Johnson? I say Yes! Mary must have a blouse to return. Maybe the one that Gina spilled coffee all over.My WV is "slityri" which I wanted to do with my own wrists during this dumb story.Question, will the wedding cake at Ginas reception be shaped like a skakeboard?
Anonymous: the only children in MW are the ones manning the front desk at Mountview. And coloring the strip.
Oh man, this story is going to be a treat! St. Worth has been pickpocketed, LOL! Just the sight of those hippies walking by was enough, but when I realized he was lifting her wallet, I almost peed my pants.She'll be at the Bum Boat crying her eyes out to Dr. Jeff, no doubt.
At first, I was thinking "What are those hippies doing?" Then, I looked back and noticed that Sonny (I'm going to call them "Sonny and Cher," just for funsies) was stealing Mary Worth's wallet! And I know I'll probably burn for this, but I laughed out loud!!!PS: I came out to my mother and told her I read Mary Worth. "Didn't they retire that?" she asked. Oh, Karen Moy!
Finally! A story about something other than young love.This is going to be great! He'll steal Mary's identity until he realizes NOBODY wants to be Mary Worth.Then we'll have to endure lectures about identity theft until the Fourth of July.
James, I'll burn too because that is the first time in a long while that I've laughed so hard at a Mary Worth comic.Oh well, they're not real, right? ;)
The beatnik thieves also appeared in the 10/31 strip, eating peacefully at a table in Mary's blind spot. I'm sure the waitstaff got a good look at them.
