Boo! First we missed Gina telling Mary about finding Bobby Black, and then we get to see their wedding. We were denied more of Jill Black and left out of Adrian's trip to Bora Bora. NOW we're kept from witnessing Nola's tear-jerking confession. Think of the face touching! The punctuation (?!?!!)What's the deal? Moy's writing software only generates scenes at dinner tables or on couches?
Doesn't every woman keep a framed photo of her boyfriend in the china cabinet?Per Thorpnotized yesterday, I googled my anti-robot words "ratiouth ommentep" and got six pages of L-moment ratio results and probability distributions straight out of the Mary Worth world of physics.
Is Nola contemplating auditioning for the part of Lady Macbeth? "Out, damned spot!"You mean we're not going to see the two gossiping lackeys from Nola's company gloating over her downfall? Will we be denied Nola's tearful apology to Dan Smithers as well? "Dan, I'm so sorry that your wife left you, I will take her place!"
Oh please, Moy, now we're not going to see any of the machinations of Nola's big confession and subsequent downfall. We want DETAILS!
Well, this news from Nola has certainly upset Mary - her left eye is about to pop out of its socket!
Dang! Look at Mary's face (particularly her eyes) in the second panel. I think Nola's news caused Mary to have a stroke!I'm sure Mary will try to take credit for Nola turning her own life around. But we all know it was the encounters with a maniacal former co-worker and a hapless compassionate hobo that triggered her epiphany.Sorry, but I have to comment on something Mary said on Saturday. "I've seen unlikely people turn their attitudes and their lives around!" What the heck are unlikely people?(Today, my anti-robot words "sgroo lsocrome" resulted in Google asking me if I had meant to search for "google chrome".)
What is Mary serving? Lard? Too bad we can't see the box it came from.Maybe it's Lart or Lird.
I've been reading the posts for some weeks now, so delighted to find that there are other people out there obsessing about the mind-boggling ineptitude of both the writing and the "artwork" of this strip. My personal favorite is the depiction of food. Mary seems to serve nothing but mush (yellow, brown and green) as well as fried mushballs, mush squares and mush cookies, or just a fine heaping bowl of mush. I love it!
Thank goodness for this blog! I thought I was the only one out there obsessing over Mary Worth. The inept writing! The non-stories! The unintentionallly surreal artwork! What's not to love?
Mary better put that box of matches away or Nola might self-immolate.Like KitKat, I am disappointed that we will not get to see Colleen Colleague and Victor von Underling leaping about with glee as Nola departs. Maybe we will...this is only the first day of the story...plenty of time for thought bubbles to appear before Ms. Moy bores us to death. Again.--Beagle Vet
Shouldn't Smithers at least sue Nola for slander? And as something had to have gone missing for there to have been a plausable accusation of theft, it is likely that Nola was the thief? I say this must be investigated and Nola must be brought to justice.Do you suppose that Mr. Burns is their CEO?
Wait until Mary hears that it was the Happy Hobo and not herself that is responsible for Nola's turnaround. Wouldn't surprise me if Mary quickly starts up a "Clean Up Santa Royale" campaign and has the Happy Hobo bused off to another city far, far away. I don't believe Mary will put up with any competition, even if was accidental.
Will D-Dan get his job back even though he is now a homeless, raving, wife-less, alcoholic?
"Here Nola, have a brick of cream cheese!"@ Beagle Vet: That is not a box of matches; that's the little plastic container that holds the sweetener packets that Mary stole from the Good Eats Diner.
Great posts today! I'd post myself, but the word verification thing is too complicated. Wait, that made as much sense as this storyline.
Nola, that looks like a bar of Ivory Soap that Mary is urging on you. She wants to wash out your mouth with soap,girl, don't fall for it!
I too, avoided this strip like a plague. Yet, somehow, my eye kept wandering down to the bottom of the comics page to gaze upon this relic from another age. I finally realized one day that it was the only strip I did not read on a daily basis. (Yes, I read Prickly City and Judge Parker.) My wife kept prodding me to peruse it so we could have something to discuss. I gave in to temptation. Now it is my "guilty pleasure". I'm just amazed at how long the writer/artist can drag out one scene. (OK, I get it. people can change!) In regards to the current story-line, we all knew Nola would have a moral awakening sooner or later. I'm really surprised they didn't stretch it out even longer!
So Mary looks positively gobsmacked; HORRIFIED really, that Nola has come clean! This verifies my belief that secretly Mary admired Nola's chicanery and dreamed of becoming just like her...if only she had the nerve. She, too, longed for some fancy apartments (yes,plural) and a title like "Vice President of Sales" and the "sharp" clothes that didn't come from a Blair catalog! Now everything's changed, dang it all!!!
No no, Mary is gobsmacked because this storyline seems to be wrapping up in record time. "What do you mean Nola's changing her ways in a matter of weeks?"
They couldn't show that scene because that would mean a panel without Mary. Blasphemy!! She must be seen in every panel at all times, we wouldn't want anyone hogging the spotlight...
