I love the rays of anger radiating from this guy's head.By the way, is Nola's boyfriend cheating on her?WV: inkoz officksh <--- what Dan is calling Nola
So what is drunken Smithers doing in "one of the most expensive shopping districts in Santa Royale"? Is this a chance encounter, or did he intentionally go looking for Nola?Someone who looks as creepy as Smithers in panel one probably would have been fired eventually anyway.
So Mary Worth goes, what? Some 60 years with no profanity and then, all of a sudden (Didn't Aldo curse?... I can't remember)...Every few weeks, a new blasting of symbology/curseology.But I do enjoy making up the possible combinations of what is being said...
I think it's commendable that, despite his rapid fall into depravity, Smithers is still wearing a tie. I only wish he had followed Nola and Mary into Luna/Mr. J's and confronted them at their table. Imagine the "!" that would have emanated from Mary's forehead.BTW, the booze pocket on Smithers's jacket traveled from the back to the side between yesterday's strip and today's.
Wanders, you certainly know how to turn *&@%$^ into some family-friendly dialogue! ;-)It didn't take Smithers long to turn to drink, maybe Nola wasn't too far off in her character assassination after all. @Thorpnotized 7:55 is right!
This is, what, the third, fourth time that profanity has found its way in simple, old-fashioned -- dare I say "glacier-ish" -- Mary Worth? Tsk tsk, Karen Moy. You don't have to work blue to get the young kids to read. The only good thing that could come with this is that Dan Smithers sees the light, goes to AA and meets Jill Black, where they fall in love and get married.
Uh, wouldn't a lawsuit have worked?Will no one think of the lawyers?
Poor Nola, just as she was going to shop till she dropped at Big Sale, along comes deadbeat Smithers to dampen the fun. What's a girl gotta do to get some quality Me Time in that town? I think she should call Police then stall Smithers for several weeks with promises of Rainbow Swirl Gin.
There's an error here. It should be spelled *&@$^%.
Perhaps this will be like the finale of 'Seinfeld', where everyone Nola has ever wronged will show up to scorn and chastize her.
I'm thinking Nola doesn't look the least bit afraid or disturbed. (Perhaps she is a blackbelt in Karate.) Her only concern, it seems, is...he's blocking the view of the Big Sale Items in the window. "Be gone little man...your rant is OVER!"
Tomorrow it will be mace/stun gun action and some evil cackling.
