Toby, does this always have to be about you??? And what is happening to your face in the 2nd panel - it's melting!Fine time to think about prevention, Mary, maybe YOU need a meddler.
Happens every time: I get to thinking that a certain woman is hot and she turns into a preying mantis on me, eager not so much to mate as to bite my head off.
Elaine: exactly! It's almost as if Mary needs to berate someone... I mean, give advice..... after the fact, as if she's not the dummy who needed to think about prevention first. "When carrying pale blue handbag that looks like a dead ringer for one the Queen might carry, always store it primly on your lap." That's for you, Mary, for next time.I didn't think anything could be duller than watching Gina agonize for weeks over Bobby, but once again, this strip is full of surprises!
Hey Toby, the strip isn't called "Mrs. Chinbeard," so back off!
"Although, with things like this, PREVENTION is the best cure! So, Toby, why didn't you say, 'Mary, don't put your handbag there'? Haven't you learned ANYTHING from me? Some aspiring meddler you are!"
Is Mary going to burn the Lemon Wedge down to prevent any more crimes from happening there in the name of prevention?
Down Toby! Didn't you have an errand to run? Was it to the drugstore to get more...um..."medication"?
And the pretzels are making me thirsty Toby.Why is Mary carrying her saucer around the house?
Toby doesn't seem so angry in panel 2, as she shrinks into that old office chair. And how does she talk with her mouth closed?
The pacSAFE travel purse with Smart zipper security. Just say'n.Well, at least my word verification is about Toby: comorin
I can't believe this insipid piece of writing and art has already inspired 10 or so comments.Moy, I'm bored...
Elaine, never fear. I think Our Mary was just talking about "Prevention" magazine.Happy Friday everyone! Make sure that if you go out this weekend, don't leave your purse hanging on the back of your chair. Or, you could leave your purse at home. Better yet, just stay home. (You could do what I do and read the backlogged "Mary Worth and Me"'s. I swear, it's better than candy!)
Yes! The Hulk! Just what I was thinking when I saw today's strip earlier!
My God, citizens of Santa Royale, can't you see what is happening? Your fair city is turning into a denizen of thieves and ne'er-do-wells. First Toby's credit, then Gina bringing in who knows how many mobsters hot on her trail, and now Mary whose purse has been viscously yanked from a heretofore safe Lemon Wedge chair. People, LEAVE TOWN before you are the next victim!!!!Maybe the next character should be a tough on crime police chief who will clean the streets clear of the scum that is becoming all too familiar these days in Santa Royale.
Did anyone read Family Circus and Marmaduke today. After reading Mary this morning I found them very entertaining.
I wonder if the crooks will take out a subscription to Kickin' Git with her credit cards and send it to Mary for spite.
Who just put those books on the desk?
Mary mangles another quote . . . but which one?"Prevention is better than cure."Desiderius Erasmus "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."Ben Franklin"Prevention is the best medicine"
a giella trademark is always to have books seen the day after a computer scene . old joe bought a set of encylopedias for 400 dollars back in 1965 and hes pretty ticked there now worth zero
Just a reminder. With Toby and Mary, this is what "so deep in conversation" looks like:Mary: "Gina found love and is happy. What's happening with you?"Toby: "Me? Same old grind."
..."deep in a trance..." is more like it.
Mary prolly thinks by now every cop car in Santa Royale has a xeroxed copy of her "List" taped to the dash.
