Today's Full Strip
When I first glanced at today's panel 2, I thought Mary was flashing the peace sign!
Please stop reading now if you don't want to know how the Nola story comes out. Karen Moy has been sending me information through the fillings in my back teeth, and I am ready to share it with you all.Okay.Nola's new job- sales rep for an ecclesiastical supply house- requires international travel. In the process of getting a passport, Nola obtains a copy of her birth certificate and learns why she looks nothing like anyone in her family. Her birth mother is ...Mary Worth...and she was adopted by the Wolvensons, a wretched couple who live in a Dickensenian hovel (but that last part was irrelevant).And in the ultimate soap spin, Nola goes to be a volunteer at Hospital,and meets Dr Drew. ( By this time, Mary has married Dr. Jeff.) Nola and Drew fall in love, plan to marry and have blue haired babies. In a cruel twist of fate, they discover that since Drew's dad is married to Nola's mum, Nola and Drew are considered to be brother and sister, and therefore, under Santa Royalean law they are not allowed to marry. Drew goes back to his lonely and clueless existence, Nola relapses into adulterous liardom.But when Mary divorces Jeff and avoids lighting up the sky, Nola and Drew are able to marry. They then go out to be the ultimate do-gooders at Peace Village. Brad and Angelina visit to observe their fellow do gooders do gooding and doing good. Nola and Brad pair up, Drew and Angelina and the kids go for a three hour cruise and never return. The other two continue to run the Village, and the legend of Branola is born.No, wait, Moy is coming in loud and clear now. What will actually happen is that Nola and Mary go into the meddling business together. They wind up in court over whose name goes first in the ads. Worth and Wolvenson---or Wolvenson and Worth?
Does anyone else think Toby looks a lot like Ann Romney in the strip today?
i guess sundays strip will be a pool party and meanwhile
Did anyone else notice yesterday that Mary's right shirt sleeve is detached in the first panel?Tomorrow will be another "Recap Sunday". I'm hoping a new storyline will start on Monday, instead of having to endure another week of Mary telling Dr. Jeff what's been going on with Nola.
Mary looks like a candy striper in the coroner's office. Who goes for a walk dressed like that?As best I can remember (this story has taken a few years to develop) Mary had Nola over once for the green glop lunch then met her once at Luna/Mr Js. And then no contact until the epiphany was complete. So how is that not giving up on her? She really is reaching awfully hard for the credit here.
Mary has the world's longest thumb, and a long skinny first finger too. Those fingers pointing upward, is that some kind of secret signal? Like, her meddling inspiration comes from above??
@meg I've placed your name on both the Nobel and Pulitzer Prize nomination lists.
Sorry, Meg, I can't go with you on that. You lost me at "By this time, Mary has married Dr. Jeff." Just remember: Charlie Brown never got to kick Lucy's football, either.Nomination for the Charterstone Jukebox, based on today's featured panel: the Talking Heads' "Road to Nowhere." "We're on a road to nowhere..."wv: heribil nossize = horrible nose size.
Whatever happened to Nola's boyfriend? Way back in the beginning of February, Nola asked Mary for advice because she suspected that her boyfriend was cheating on her because she had cheated on him first. The story went downhill from there and we never heard about the boyfriend again. I need resolution!
How come Toby is never invited to watch TV with Mary and Jeff? That would make things move along a little faster where Mary would boast about her meddling exploits (even if the happy hobo and a drunken, ranting ex-coworker were responsible for Nola's epiphany) to both of them at the same time. Did Nola have one epiphany or multiple epiphanies?
Thank god for those Sunday recaps or I would never have been able to follow the plot intricacies. Seriously, isn't critiquing MW starting to seem like kicking a puppy?
