"Dave" is the screen name Bobby Black uses to pick up chicks on the Internet. He's doing a lot of dumping today.
Today's Full Strip
Dawn is a loser in more than love. She's been an undergraduate for, what, six years? She lives with Daddy Wilbur and apparently spends all her time online in her bedroom. (Is she a distance learner?) Not only that, two people have written their names on her bedroom door - what nerve! I can just hear Mary's advice: "Dear, Diner is looking to hire a waitress. You should apply. It worked wonders for my old friend Gina!"Speaking of doors, does Dawn's bedroom open directly onto the hall between apartments? The first panel shows a door labeled "310" in the background. By the second panel, Wilbur's sandwich aura has made the 310 door disappear.
Dawn, Dawn. Didn't you learn this the last time we saw you? STEP AWAY FROM THE INTERNET. I bet she didn't even get a dumping email - "Dave" probably just changed his Facebook profile to "single." Sounds like a case for Meddlin' Mary!
@KitKat - Dawn is a loser in even more ways. How old is she, and she still has Barby pink walls and sheets? And a teddy bear the size of her upper body on her bed? Still in her jammies, and what time is it? Mary, you can't get there soon enough!
Sigh. No smoke monster. No zombies. Just Dawn in her pink and purple (Gack!) bedroom, setting up a classic Marymeddle opportunity. Perhaps she can effect an introduction to Dan Smithers. It's not that age-inappropriate, when you consider Dawn has been a full-time student long enough to attain "non-traditional" status.Who is Dave?
I'm a loser in love yet again!Oh, God, NO... don't tell Mary!
Dawn is quite a loser. Big time. Even her white teddy bear agrees, who, by the way, has more Facebook friends than she does.Dave is the smartest character in MW, not wanting to get involved with anyone in the strip.
Love all the comments so far. I noticed that "320" door, too. I don't think anyone can figure out how Charterstone is constructed.
I think Wilbur has numbered all the doors in his apartment, following some archaic numerology that exists in his mind. "310" is the vortex of sandwich related thoughts, while the "kitchen" is actually "311," the logical sequence from thought to action.I am so very proud that another Dave dumped Dawn, if by dumping you mean stop pointless online chatting with a girl-woman who can't hide her issues, even anonymously.
I am so loving the teddy bear's buzzed face as he slyly reaches his wandering right paw over...This is supposed to be a FAMILY FRIENDLY comic strip!!!
Maybe Dave dumped Dawn because of her unsightly cankles and elongated feet. Am I wrong, or shouldn't her hair be blue/black?Wilbur put numbers on the doors so Dawn can pretend she's living in a college dorm.
The doors are numbered so Wilbur can keep better track of his victims I mean houseguests.Is his shirt so tight that his belly button is showing?--Beagle Vet
Wilbur and Dawn may live in 310, but that teddy definitely lives in 420.
Oh No! ... Is what a broken heart will crywhen the tides of love through facebook ebbAlas, the fated romances of webHe must have been a winner of a guyto date a girl who's still in junior highWith hues of pink and purple comes the dawnThe start of a new story and I'm pumped!(These stories have a way of dragging on.)Reliably, our Wilber is still plumpedHis being, dismal and his posture slumpedThis is the face of Wilbur whereuponagain we get to watch this dawn get dumped
The teddy bear looks just like Wilbur. Disturbing. Dawn has manatee feet and will undoubtedly always be a loser in love - yet again. @duckduckgoose - :)
@duckduckgoose: Best! Post! Ever!
@duckduckgoose: that's awesome! I have nothing to add other than Wilbur needs to round up some kites quick!
Yes! I finally made the strip!And Dawn, the fact that you tell your father "I'm a loser in love yet again" may be a symptom of your problem.The fact that I post comments to characters in a comic strip headlined by a 120 year old lady may be a symptom of my problems.
@duckduckgoose: Bravo!!@Dave in Parma: As my namesake's story comes to a close (again), I hand the baton to you. Carry it proudly.
I just hope this isn't going to be all about Dawn. I crave some Wilbur action! Perhaps his response will be;''I'm sorry, dear. I would take you out to fly a kite, but I have a date!''And, am I crazy, or didn't Wilbur used to have a girlfriend? Ada, Ida, something like that? Whatever happened to her?
Whoever said recently that a Wilbur plotline gets the best comments was so right - today is filled with gems, and we can't even gotten started! Meg, Chester, Dave, Duck - loved them all. Am still laughing at Thorp's "cankles" comment.
Dawn never even met Dave. He's just a guy she contacted in a chatroom. After a week if IM's he finally had enough of her after she asked him if he wears boxers or briefs.
Oh god, NO. Now I have listen to her whine for six months.
@Maude Findlay, Wilbur's lady love (probably too strong a term) is/was Iris Beedie. See MW&Me #970; the bonus is a classic pose of Wilbur about to shove a sandwich into his mouth: http://maryworthandme.blogspot.com/search/label/Iris%20Beedie@duckduckgoose, we are not worthy of such brilliance!
Dave is actually the son of Nigerian royalty who knows how to make millions at home.
The Teddy Bear is an albino, made out of the same fabric as her pillowcase. Or did Moy forget to color something?
The internet was bad before because of fraud. Then it was good because of facebook - Bobina. Now it will be bad again because of internet dating/dumping or something. Moy can't seem to make up her mind whether intertoobs are good or bad in her mind and we keep being punished with techno-centered story lines as she struggles endlessly with the subject.
Isn't Dawn about 35 years old? I think there is some arrested development here.
