Mary Worth 1,215

Yes, Emily, and try not to get kidnapped again. Because, of course, you realize it was your own fault.

And so, the endless PSA's begin!

"I"d like to go back to Wayne," says Emily. "He didn't surround me and lecture me with platitudes. He just used salty language and grew facial hair while I colored."

wv: vomet - no commentary needed.

KitKat said...

Emily: "Okay, I see something wrong. Dad's jacket clashes with his hair, and this kelkie doesn't have enough flak chips in it!"

So, will next week's adventures feature Mary describing for Toby her warm and fuzzy meeting with the Smith Family?

I see something wrong every morning when I read Mary Worth. What small action can I take to make a difference?

Paul said...

"Just remember, if you see something wrong... say something!"

Isn't that why "Mary Worth & Me" exists?

As Emily raises her cookie in solidarity with Mary's words. In Santa Royale, all pledges/oaths are taken with a Toll House in hand.

I would have thrown that cookie at her. The last thing Emily needs after being kidnapped is to be lectured by some aging busybody and relive the crime.

Anonymous-Hilarious! What can we do?

Everyone here wants to move on to another story. Problem is we haven't even begun with Wayne's trial. There could be several weeks of Mary on the witness stand. Prepare yourselves.

With as many cookies that emily keeps jamming into her mouth, the modeling career that Mary promised her will no longer be an option.

Sandi Ego said...

I doubt if the message will sink in for Emily because none of Mary's words were in BOLD type.

After carefully examining panel 2, I believe this may be a national security matter. It is plain that the person in panel 2 is actually the "late" Kim Jong Il, wearing an "Emily" mask. That most certainly is not a child's hand holding onto the Kelkie. She's a man, baby!

wv:bersh. Excuse me.

KitKat said...

meg @ 11:49 AM, you have really hit on something. Great observation! And, when closely examining the second panel as directed, I was even more horrified by the specter of Mary's neck-less head and Pointy Finger of Doom - aaaaahhhhhh!!

wv: "incouart," which I think describes Mr. Giella's work

birdie said...

Good point Paul! We're doing our best to say something, but Moy doesn't seem to be listening. Perhaps we should call the police.

meg said...

KitKat- I think what "Mary" is actually doing is reaching to remove her own mask. OMG! What if she's actually Osama Bin Laden?
"The Worth Identity" meets "The Manchurian Candidate"...

birdie-please don't call the Santa Royale Police. I want to live to see this thing resolved.

Emily, Pass me a flakolate chip kelkie, will ya!

Elaine said...

Is Mary hoping to make Emily her protegee? Perhaps if she surrounds her with enough platitudes and kelk cookies, it will be a smooth transition.

Thorpnotized said...

So does anyone think we will move on to a new storyline next week?

Limber Joe said...

"Fedledup" I kid you not!

Karen with a K said...

It's a pretty sorry state of affairs when I start wishing for a Wilbur story line to get started. Even the ridiculous "addicted to the Internet" story was better than this strange combination of Mary Worth worship and public service announcement!

one question why did wayne kidnap her ? he didnt abuse her and didnt ask for money so what was his reason to watch her color snowmen.p.s mary the more cookies she eats the uglyier she gets shes no model

Nancy said...

What if Wayne is actually Emily's long-lost brother and the couple pretending to be her parents are the actual kidnappers? Nah -- that would make the plot too interesting.
