Dear God,Is this really where the story is heading?
I nominate today's second panel for Panel of the Year in the 2012 Worthy Awards! It may not be "Two Headed Doctor" good, but it's pretty darn iconic.
Yeah, Nola. We're all shedding tears here.
Woo hoo! Big tears, a double face-touch, two memory bubbles, and a thought bubble, all in one panel! What a way to wrap up an otherwise boring week!In the movie version of this storyline, the part of D-Dan Smithers should be played by Dan Lauria (Kevin's dad in "The Wonder Years").
Talk about a rush to judgment! Just because Brownie Hobo Fidel is pushing a cart of cans/bottles/motor oil containers, the omniscient narrator of the Worthiverse, Ms. Moy, brands him as a homeless man. Ms. Moy, as Mary would say to Toby in her kindly supercilious manner, "You can't judge a book by its cover, nor an e-book by its e-reader device." Tsk tsk.
I am still not sure why everyone rushes to label the eclectic Amish collector of red and blue cylindrical containers as a "hobo".Uh uh uhh....Only red or blue, please!PS - this was really hard to type through the tears welling up in my eyes from this touching story...
Are we sure this isn't a modern day reenactment of Dickens' Christmas Carol? Dan is the ghost of Nola's past, hoboman is the ghost of Nola's future, and she turns into a kind, wonderful, generous human, Dan gets his job back, Nola goes to work as Jill's assistant at the hospital, and they all live happily ever after.
That's not a homeless man. That's Elvis.
Nola's tear duct must be huge! That is the biggest tear I've ever seen. Fingers crossed that she remembered to wear her waterproof Chanel mascara today.Giella strikes again - one collar on Nola's blouse is striped, the other is plain. How much do you suppose he gets paid to do this for a living?
I just donated via PayPal - money well spent for all the laughs. Thank you for your efforts to help us make sense of the Worthiverse.
This is a shoo-in for a Worthy Award in any category ... all categories! Hats off to Giella & Moy for today's installment.
Punky is correct, this is an excellent nominee for Panel of the Year! It even has a floating shopping cart.--Beagle Vet
So Smithers and McHobo are two of the ghostly visitors, from out of nowhere? Who will be the third? Mary herself?
I just Googled Joe Giella and found that he is 83 years old! I realize that compared with Mary Worth he is a kid, but we should both applaud his work ethic and cut him some slack.
"What...just happened?" What...is going on?" Perhaps Nola is being punked by "The Joe Schmoe Show"!
So Smithers and McHobo are two ghostly visitors, from out of nowhere? Who will be the third? Mary herself? To complete the story arc?
Are we supposed to think the time/warp continuum finally caught up with Santa Royale, and those many lunches that stretched into weeks has finally fast-forwarded time, and Nola was actually sitting on that bench for 25 years, giving Smithers time to age from disgruntled middle-aged failure to elderly homeless man?
Whew! Good thing Smithers' hand was not so darn big when he was berating Nola. That thing looks dangerous.
The Hobo got through to Nola while Mary Wo could not. Maybe the Hobo is being groomed to take Mary's place? Bum Magic!!
I don't know where Brownie Fidel "found" that shopping cart, but those things aren't cheap! He may not be so noble after all.
