Thank you, Mary Worth, for taking the initiative to make a speech, full of delightful repartee and bantering interaction with your congregants, and veiled references in praise of your Creator... Karen Moy.
Today's Full Strip
Oh Wanders, we're of the same mind. The first thing I thought was, "Is Fate another name for Moy?"
First Mary starts quoting the Bible to Nola. Then in a transition plot, she & Dr. Do-gooder were watching a disgraced televangelist. Now grim faced Mary is beginning to beguile her captive audience with a sermon about a "higher power". Is Mary Worth about to launch her own ministry of meddling?
In case you're wondering, Mary is NOT standing on a dais, she has ascended to a higher plane of being. We'll call it Meddlemoia.That wedding reception is even duller than Adrian and Scott's.
Props to Anonymous 7:23 last night, who totally called Mary's speech! Maybe this new couple that has shown up to adulate Mary ("tell it, sister!") will need some wedding-reception meddling. (Also really enjoyed the derfy guy between them. He kind of looks like a grown-up Dondi.)
Let's see...Mary is pontificating to three wedding guests. Does this make her the Ancient Mariner? (Finally, a justification for being forced to read that damn thing fifty years ago in high school.) Actually, I was hoping that Gina would stop this ponderous reception cold by giving Bobby her rendition of "Zou Bisou, Bisou".
fauxprof@8:50 AM, I love your suggestion about Gina singing "Zou Bisou, Bisou"! She could do it while skateboarding around the room.
Wasn't the "higher power" Facebook?
If the Blazes is really the NY Red Bulls then Gina just married a loser. From Wikipedia: "They [NY Red Bulls] are the only original MLS franchise to have not won any significant trophy (be it regular season, playoffs, or knockout competition) since inception."
The comments from those other guests are rather dismissive and snarky, considering they have never met Mary before.I wonder if Mary will be sitting with Gina and Bobby at the bridal table, considering how (self)-important she is.
I sure hope they do karaoke. Mary can sing "That's What Friends Are For".
Mary looks really condescending, preachy, and snarky in today's last panel. "It was Fate!" You can almost see the unspoken "Idiot! (or worse) left hanging there.I also feel like this is the perfect moment for a Mary Worth PSA. What can it be? She's instructed us against identity theft, showed us how to help missing children, and now...?
I forgot to comment on the background guy in the second panel. Who took a bite out of his shoulder?
That's not a bite out of that guy's shoulder! It's the indentation from a bra strap. Which means "he" is really a woman in disguise. I bet it's Nasa, come to try to steal Bobby away from Angina.Or, perhaps Nasa has mistaken the guy in the houndstooth sportcoat for Drew and is stalking the wrong guy.Doesn't matter, I guess, because Mary is about to smite them all.--Beagle Vet
Is there a category of worst daily strip in the Worthies?If so, I would like to nominate MW1,297 for the honor.Boring, pious, fresh youngsters spouting trite catch phrases...I rest my case.
Um... did Gina just change her entire outfit and lose her ponytail. In mid-sentence!?
[SATURDAY] Today, we are fortunate to catch the mid-metamorphosis of the neckline of Mary's dress. Notice how the left is squared off, and the right is rounded. I almost didn't notice it, because I was transfixed by Mary wringing her disturbingly manly hands.
From April 22:Anonymous said... they better not be discussing nola tomm thats all im saying April 22, 2012 11:41 AMWhat Anonymous said! Only substitute Bobbygin for Nola.
"higher forces"-- so, is she referring to God? For the love o' Pete, can she not just SAY "God", as in "maybe it was God's will these two be together?" or, "Yay, clap clap, praise God these two got married at last! Woo Hoo, way to go Bobbina!"my robot words today: tistspos ackside
Every time I look at Mary, I can't help but to think she's like the female counterpart to President Snow from the Hunger Games. These simpletons sitting around her are automatons that she programs to grin and nod their heads in agreement.
I step away from this blog for a week and when I come back I see Barbara Bush talking to Dick Clark and Victoria Beckham....what the heck? Who was wishing that Bobby's coach -- Stumpy McNoNeck -- would stand up and disrupt the wedding a la Jill Black?
