Smugness? Check!Silly action? Check!MW&M? Check!
Run Wayne!And what a well written panel 2. I know when people ask me "are you Dave", I usually answer "yes, from Parma".
Emily rubs her sore shoulder that Mary crushed in her over-exuberance yesterday in panel two.And Dave @ 8:05:Yes, I noticed that as well. But, on the bright side, we at MW&Me are never disappointed with a lack of clumsily worded panels for our amusement and derision.
I am just STUNNED to see how chubby Wayne can outrun these two policemen who were directly in his path and who seem to be in prime physical condition. But, no doubt there's method to Moy's madness. Since we've been deprived of a shootout (may still happen in some dark alley) or a hostage situation, I'm sure the next few weeks will bring us a MANHUNT!!! Tomorrow Wayne might climb to the top of a building and jump from roof to roof while our well-muscled coppers run around the ground flailing their arms.
"...and I'm ten years old and have blonde hair, blue eyes."WV: hypterea. 1. An exaggerated premise building to excessive emotion, ultimately giving way to a dry and dull storyline.
I'm glad that we cleared up that this is Emily Smith from Goleta and not Emily Smith from somewhere else because then Mary would have to admit she made a mistake and return the girl to the kidnapper
I have a question...is the lady with the broken arm that Mary shoved a casserole at, is she Emilys mother? It was so long ago...I forgot....
It hope the cops throw the book at him - not only for kidnapping Emily Smith of Goleta, but also for stealing Diner's parking lot.
Oh, and for making me type "It hope" instead of "I hope". Wayne's a dangerous guy.
Ever cut out a picture of your friend's head and Scotch tape it to some random photo of someone else's body? You know, like putting your roommates's head on Mittr Romney's body and then sticking in on your refrigerator. And you know how the head never quite matches up in size, orientation, or position, and that's part of the joke? That's Mary's head in panel 1 today, only it's not funny. It's terrifying.
unDespite all the warnings she has been given, Mary seems to have let someone steal her purse again. Notice that she has it slung over her shoulder in panel 1 and it's gone by panel 2. Maybe the "Case of the Girl from Goleta" will be immediately followed by the "Case of the Purloined Purse."
@Hia5 - her purse, her missing sweater...is there no end to the madness hitting Santa Royale?
I wish the police force in my city dressed in uniforms that matched the color of their patrol cars."LET'S GET OUT OF THE WAY!" So Mary turns the lights off and moves Emily a foot or two closer to the potted plant, which has grown more leaves in panel two. And since Wayne and the policemen are running AWAY from them, how are they "in the way" to begin with?
As there are five Emily Smiths living in Goleta, confusion is certain to ensue.
Chester the Dog at 9:17 AM, I was hoping that Amy, the sling-wearing woman on whom Mary forced a casserole, is Wayne's mother.As others have pointed out, how odd that Emily says what town she's from. Wouldn't a kidnapped child ask for her parents? [head slap] Doh! How could I forget that different rules operate in the Worthiverse?!
Nice dance moves by the cops. No wonder Thuggy is getting away.--Beagle Vet
If Mary was so certain that the girl was Emily Smith when she called for the police, why is she asking her to confirm who she is now? Emily should have answered, "YES... NOW WHERE'S MY *&^%$#@ ICE CREAM!"
Mary's purse is missing in panel 2!The sly little "Emily" from "Goleta" is the real thief, or else those hipsters in the mirrored shades are back!
heydave @ 2:09 PM, it would be fab if the hipster thieves were Emily's parents, and Emily was a 21st- century Artful Dodger! Alas, too literary for Moy I fear.
No relief at being "rescued" yet on the face of Emily Smith from Goleta!! Perhaps Mary can shake some gratitude out of her like she manhandled poor Bree. Say, where IS Bree by the way?
I saw a commercial featuring Chris Christie, and I was almost tempted to call the police. "That kidnapper is on my TV right now! He's sitting there with Oprah! Do something!!!!"Now with this storyline at a conclusion -- I hope! -- Mary Worth will be free to "meldst" (WV) away! I'm guessing meldst is kind of like meddling and melting.
James in North Dakota: "Meldst" is the King James Bible version of "Meddle." As in "Thou shouldst not meldst with thy neighbors."
I can't believe how you guys can get me to enjoy something as gawd awful as MW. Every time I start to seethe that anyone would pay someone money to write/draw such drivel, I remember I get to read your keen insights about it. Thank you.p.s. If Wayne gets away, you know he's gonna show up at the Bum Boat and Mary will have him in a half nelson before he knows what hit him. Or she'll save him from choking with the Heimlich maneuver while she spouts some crazy line about helping your fellow human being.
The Diner is right next to the hospital right? Maybe Wayne can run in there and hold Dr. Jeff hostage. The Diner manager must have hidden himself in a cupboard in the kitchen or something. Where did he go?
I sure hope the next story line is about The Shame of Being From Goleta! Look how poor Emily Smith covered her face when she admitted she was from there...clearly, Goleta is a place that NEEDS Mary Worth to fix what's wrong.
Am I Emily Smith? No I'm not. I'm Emily Smith from Goleta.
1-11-12: How many other people are going to ask Emily if she is Emily Smith? Do they want autographs or something?And BTW: nice mom jeans on the lady cop!
Can Emily, Emily Smith...yes, THE Emily Smith from GOLETA...Puuleeeze finally have some of that free rainbow swirl ice cream??
