I can't believe I am thinking this...might the new story line be about Mary & Nola embarking on a May-December, um, "relationship"? Does Santa Royale allow same-sex marriage? Civil unions? Maybe one of the Republican candidates can make a cameo at the end and rescue Mary!
I hope that Mary gives Nola Wolv-enson the ben-ifit of the doubt, too...NOT!AAAAARRRRGGGGGHHH! I can't stand the hypenated text! I do some cartooning myself and everyone knows that you make the bubble big enough for FULL WORDS!!!!!wv: nonfust - so wrong. I am VERY fust-ated.
Mary says, "Benefit of the doubt" in boldface italics - horrors! Is she rebuking Toby, warning Nola, or doing both simultaneously? If Mary wasn't holding a kelkie, her Finger of Doom would be pointing.There's still no sign of a pool at the Pool Party, but the scenery reminds me of the hill where Wilbur frolicked with Kurt, his non-son.
i, or one, think a blurry Toby is kinda hawt!As for Mary and her Talisman of Truth (cookie? salmon square? kelkish?) well, Nola has no hope but to watch her facade of niceness crumble.
Mary is about to realize, to her horror, that Nola has out-classed her by wearing pearls to the pool party. Meanwhile, Nola is so fixated on the gentleman she is talking to, she has swallowed her little pink umbrella...
Maybe the new story will be about Toby's intolerance of anyone who isn't.....Toby! She certainly looks a bit miffed, being left behind, while Mary runs off to be the non-judgmental good Charterstone citizen.
I don't know about you, but every time I see a woman talking to a man, I conclude that she must be a slut. Although there is a chance that Toby is jealous that Nola was talking to someone she has an interest in. I mean, she must be sick of Ian by now.
@QuakerJohn--if @Meg was (rightfully so) gagging at my Ian back hair comment yesterday, I'll need to join her at the visual of your comment (not that there's anything wrong with it).
Hey Mary--I don't seem to remember you giving Wayne the kidnapper the benefit of the doubt. True, he did end up being a kidnapper, but we didn't know that.Would love to see the police (on their under-powered Segways, a'la "Paul Blart: Mall Cop") still chasing Wayne through the background of the pool party.
Armed with only one delicious kelkie, Mary quietly stalks the unsuspecting wild Wolvenson. Every day now, we'll see her move a fraction of an inch closer, spouting thought balloons of hyphenated platitudes and self-congratulations. All is as it should be.
There once was a woman named Nolawho wore a pink umbrella in her colaand smiled at Larry,a man who is married,making Toby the town Ayatollah.wv: mularrie - in SR "mulLarrie-a" leads to MarY-coli
I still don't understand what Toby is all shook up about. She must have a weird, slanted sense of "logica" (WV) to misconstrue an innocent conversation between a man and a woman as some sort of hot and heavy session of dirty talk. It's a good thing she wasn't at Diner. She would have went right up to Wayne McLargeNeck and said "Now, see here..."duckduckgoose....your limerick was AWESOME! :)
Now let me get this straight. Toby is mighty perturbed because a woman is talking - not coming on to - a man at a party, which makes that woman a hussy, who might well go after her OWN man, who is not even at the party? Her husband, in fact, being a pompous git who would bore silly any woman he happened to chat up? That's why she's looking so angry? She needs to go paint a few more clowns, and chillax. Have a kelkie.
Non-judgmental, my big toe. Full blown meddle, coming down the pike, full speed ahead. Yahoo! Can you tell I'm excited that something is finally happening again?
tuffenuf @ 8:26 AM - Not only is there hyphenated text in both panels, "Wolvenson" is a proper name and should therefore not be hyphenated at all. Including Nola's last name isn't necessary anyway (unless we have already forgotten who she is since Monday).
Mary is approaching Lone Wolvenson because she is the only person in Santa Royale who hasn't heard about Mary's heroic, single-handed rescue of Goleta Girl. Prepare for boredom.
"Something's finally happening." Huh?
Does the second panel remind anyone else of an Archie comic, with Toby as Betty, Nola as Veronica, and Mary as Archie?And, of course, Jerry Mathers as The Beaver.--Beagle Vet Behind the Giant Suspiciously-Shaped Background Leaves
@Dave in Parma, 10:09 a.m.Police on Segways chasing Wayne in the background of the pool party ... to music from The Benny Hill Show.wv: sleromo -- the secret ingredient of a kelkie.
I was going to give Nola the benefit of a doubt, but there is way too much sparkle in those eyes!
dam toby is just mad because she is way hotter then nola and only old mary talks to her . even wilber only has eyes for spamburgers instead of tobys long legs
As usual, today's comments (& duck's limmerick) are hilarious!So Toby is miffed, and Mary is about to meddle with Nola, but WHERE is Del? She was one crazy, headband-wearing chick back in the day, so I can't believe she's nowhere to be seen! (Unless she's back there in the bushes somewhere enjoying some kelkies with Charley Smith?)
Hmmm, giraffe print shirt, yellow safari leisure suit, pearls and a sassy bob - I'm pretty sure Nola is the hipster lead singer of an indy pop band with an anti-Los Angeles angle (It is NoLA afterall). She's probably just blathering on about their newest cassingle.WV - Prestin, the keyboardest for NoLA.
In the second panel all semblence of civilization disappears - no tables, fence, canapes, partygoers. Suddenly they are on a tropical island. Lost? Can't wait for the polar bear.
No matter how hard I try, I can't get Dave in Parma's image of "the police (on their under-powered Segways) still chasing Wayne through the background of the pool party." Dave, you have come up with the Worthiverse's equivalent of the Keystone Kops.
The scary thing about this panel is that Mary's mask looks like it's about to peel off. What do you think her real face looks like under there?
The Benny Hill music would be perfect @Mary...
The Benny Hill music completes the image. Great teamwork, Dave and Mary!
