Panel one--Toby--"I've heard that pockets are easily picked at crowded places like restaurants and airports"What Mary's thought bubbles should say--"Especially when a person's 'friend' shuts her eyes while aging hippies fumble through my purse".Or "How mind-numbingly boring can you be as a conversationalist, Toby? Thank God my 6 cups of coffee were all heavily spiked..."Or "Professor Chinbeard needs to return you to the trophy store and exchange you for a slightly more intellectual model"
"Cocktail Party Icebreakers" the new book by Toby Cameron--includes the following surefire conversation starters..."I've heard that falling in a lake will make you wet.""I've heard that most cases of frostbite occur on cold winter days!""I've heard that you shouldn't give your credit card numbers to strangers."You want to hear more...buy the book!
You don't spell "than" with an "e" either, but I never expected Toby to start channeling George Harrison.
Material world? Did Toby just finish up her Recital o' Platitudes by quoting Madonna?I . . . I need to go and lie down now.
"It's the price to pay for living in this material world!" Yes, back in the olden, not-material days, there was no theft. Notice that Mary is doing the closed-eyes manuever as she lifts a spoonful of cake to her mouth. And, I'm stunned by Toby's purple jumpsuit, with palazzo-pant bottoms no less. Paris - Milan - New York - London - Santa Royale....
Get from behind those shades, that back lighting of a tease. I want to see Toby in the Material Girl's metallic brassiere! And Mary in Madonna's big cowboy hat!! Talk about your Black Friday!!!1!
BTW, I just saw that many places are now marketing Holy Mary ornaments, as seen in yesterday's strip.Talk about Dark Black Fridays!
I can only imagine how much petty theft has been prevented today. Thanks for looking out for us Karen Moy. You are a national treasure.
Again with the vigilance? At least today they're finally having some cake. What the heck was Mary serving for Thanksgiving yesterday, anyway? Something with dipping sauce, it looks like. Or she carries that cup of coffee around with her everywhere she goes...
Does anyone else remember the song "Silhouettes on the Shade"?
i bet you could talk to toby about paint drying and she would be interested.toby should be a politian she could do a great filabuster.
Oh, Wanders, me too -- I was SO hoping Toby would say "we have to be vigilantes" and then Mary would say, "Yes, we do".
Thorpnotized at 11:33- oh, what a lovely couple they made.
I fear for Toby's marriage. She spends sooo much time with Mary, and she will listen to ANYTHING, no matter how lackluster the topic, no matter how pointless the points being made, no matter how smug and self-congratulatory the theme of Mary's monologue.I can only conclude that Ian's convo is even less interesting. Ian(In a thick Scottish brogue): Well, Toby, will ye be serving up the haggis soon? The footie is coming on the telly in about a mo, can't be missing the annual Dundee v Peterhead match. An' while yer at it, gel, I'll be having some blood pudding with a glass of Auld Spit. And please grade those papers for my freshman English class. Ta'.
And may I belatedly offer my apologies for stereotyping the many fine Scots who read here and do not speak with a brogue and do not like haggis, footie or whiskey.
"We have to be VIGILANT!" Such a tease. I think Karen Moy deliberately said that to tease us. She knows that with another identity theft storyline, we all are hoping for another vigilante storyline as well. Justice must be meted out!
So it appears that Toby went somewhere else for Thanksgiving. But now Mary and Toby are together again wearing the same outfits as before, having the same conversations as before.Also, I think Mary made Hard Tack for Thanksgiving dinner, picture and recipe below:http://woodsrunnersdiary.blogspot.com/2010/07/hard-tack-or-ships-biscuit-recipe.html
Can anyone shed a light on identifying Mary's guests for Thanksgiving??And I'm pretty sure that Mary deep-fried that coffee cup.
