Help Dawn, eat a ham sandwich. Help Dawn, eat a ham sandwich. So many choices, but which do I choose?
Today's Full Strip
Well,obviously Dawn was much more invested in their relationship than Dave was.
I find myself wondering where the sandwich comes into the equation, when this strip is created.Does Moy write "Wilbur in kitchen, munching sandwich" as direction for Uncle Joe? Does she write "Wilbur is standing in kitchen when Dawn comes home with groceries" and does Joe then say "aha! a perfect opportunity to draw Wilbur eating a sandwich!"? Or is it a standing joke between them, to create as many scenes as possible where Wilbur can be munching a sandwich, a la Gail Collins and Mitt Romney's dog in the New York Times?I know I'm way overthinking this. Sad, really.
The sandwich must represent that obelisk in 2001 Space odyssey. The sandwich is Wilbur's totem, his touchstone. The sandwich must be obeyed.
I think Wilbur is quite up to "putting those groceries away".Shopping for him is probably a full time job.Dawn, Dave is a twerp. You're lucky to be rid of a guy who is that obtuse.
I *have* to add "SOB!" to my vocabulary.WV: ousrior ceensuc (I won't even pretend to address that...this IS a family friendly blog.)--wheelhead
Oops! There go the oranges and the dangerously pointy bananas. Sure hope the eggs weren't in the bottom of the bag.Wilber kan haz sanwidge. lol.
Why did Dawn buy bananas, where she CLEARLY still has bananas at home (see bowl of fruit)?
I once heard (but may not entirely believe) that Frank Sinatra required that his dressing rooms have a pack of cigarettes on every flat surface in the room. One might think that Wilbur has a similar requirement with sandwiches. Or not. Wilbur doesn't have that kind of ego, but I think I just like the image of sandwiches all over the apartment, on the kitchen counter, by the computer, on the nightstand on the bathroom vanity (ewww), etc. This could either be because Wilbur just likes to be within arms reach of a sandwich at all times or because he's scatterbrained and compulsively makes sandwiches. I'm surpised he didn't call Dawn on her cell while she was at the supermarket. "Dawn, be a dear and pick up another jar of mayo. We're almost out and there's a long weekend coming up!"In all honesty, I was overjoyed to see Wilbur with a sandwich, but I take Wanders' point. It is a bit much. My mind may also have strayed into the same area as Punky: who takes the initiative to place the sandwich in the strip? Is it just part of Joe Giella's style sheet on Wilbur (like Homer Simpson with one of those doughnuts with the pink frosting and sprinkles). It's a bit demeaning to the character.Yes, I can overthink the sandwich issue.
@Chester the Dog, I think those bananas jumped from the bag into the bowl on their own. They fear for their own safety in this highly dramatic scene. The oranges are trying it, too, but obviously they lack the grace of the bananas.
Now was that a sound that Dawn was making, or did she call Dave a S.O.B.?And by the way, Nothing says "cutting edge" in the kitchen decorating world like black walls with peach colored countertops.SNAZZY!!!
I wonder when Wilbur ever puts in time writing his advice column. He always seems to be lolling around the apartment, with a sandwich always at hand. One would think Dawn would be glad to have an in-house professional advice-giver, but we all know that amateur meddler Mary will horn in on l'affair Dave.
Here is Dave's take on the situation:Oh, there's Dawn next to the Bananas. She's one of my 200 friends on Facebook. She "liked" my plans for a picnic at Mom and Dad's. I don't think she "liked" my status that I was back with the girl of my dreams, but that doesn't mean anything - does it?Why is she being so rude to me and my girlfriend near the Corn?
Goodness sakes, today Dawn looks like she's thirteen years old!! And why do her tears flow down the OUTSIDES of her eyes? That's seriously messed up. She might have a horrible eye disease called, "ormiteds stomell"!! (actually my wv words, but it SOUNDS like awful.
why is it all I can think about when looking at panel 2 is "baby's got back"?
So is Dawn (or maybe Wilbur) going to get drunk and assault Dave a la D-Dan Smithers?
