I'm not sure what Wilbur had in mind when he suggested Dawn turn her frown upside down, but I used cut and paste to find out. I'm not convinced this is any better.
Today's Full Strip
There's enough room in those overhead storage compartments for a steamer trunk and a set of golf clubs. Passengers must save a bundle on checked baggage fees.If that's the kind of advice Wilbur gives in "Ask Wendy", Mary should have no trouble outdoing him. "Turn that frown upside down"? I remember that one from Romper Room, circa 1953!
Somewhere, legions of stonemasons are trying to capture the subtlety of Dawn's smirk, her petulance coupled with her pantheon of passive aggressiveness, all basking in that new maternal glow.Or maybe they're just spray painting her face on stuff before they burn it.
POW POW POW POW POW! I finally caved and had to punch Dawn repeatedly in the face (hence, the face). "Yippee"? REALLY? Honestly, if she's really this down, she needs to be in the hospital. (Well, especially after my beat down.)
I envy Mary. Her computer monitor is larger than any I have ever had...
Are they going to continue to take their local paper in Italy, so Dawn can see Wendy's response to her letter?Dawn obviously needs to be hospitalized, and on a suicide watch. I only hope she doesn't take the whole plane down with her when she makes her move.
Oh my what a strip today. What haopoened to Dawns mouth? Did the flight attendant finally have enough of Dawns snotty comments and smack herone in the mouth? If I was Wilbur(glad I am not), I'd smack Dawn right outta first class and into coach. What an ungrateful little twit. And Mary sems ready for a real meddlefest! I also like how she is using her "text to speech" option in her AOL account.
So help me, if Barney the Purple Dinosaur gets quoted on this flight, I am starting a Dawn Weston Fan Club. (Motto: Life Is Brutal)
Even if I weren't a surly, immature brat like Dawn, I'd want to push Wilbur off the plane. Enough with the chirpy chatter! For Pete's sake, Wilbur, eat something.Having two plots going simultaneously might strain Ms. Moy's capabilities. Will we really see the Westons touring Italy while Mary bollixes "Ask Wendy"? Personally, I foresee a ripoff of "The Light in the Piazza," wherein Dawn is swept off her feet by an Italian hunk. Except that instead of being simple-minded because of a riding accident, Dawn's disability is being a royal pain in the tush.
There are so many words I want to call Dawn, but I'll hold my tongue. Hypothetically, if the plane were to have trouble and make a bumpy emergency landing on a deserted island, I hope Dawn gets cut in half by her open tray table (which she probably refused to close) and the group decides to eat Wilbur (which should provide years of sustenance for the survivors). Of course, I hope the rest of the passengers are OK and get rescued very soon... after eating Wilbur.
Chester, the mouth in the image on my blog is literally turned upside down at Wilbur's recommendation. It might be difficult to see the original mouth in the smaller prints.
Now that we've had "turn that frown upside down" in the strip, I'm really hoping Moy can work "hitch your wagon to a star" into the conversation.
Oh, I see what you did Wanders. I thought Dawn was having a stroke at first.Speaking of those overhead storage compartments, they remind me of the storage container on Deep Space Station K7. You could fit a lot of tribbles in there.
ok, I'm LOVING today's strip -- am totally mesmorized by those overhead bins!!! I mean...who do you have to know to get on a flight with those things? And do you have to be a certain height to be allowed to have one?
In researching the origin of "Turn that frown upside down", the earliest known ancestor may have been uttered on the HMS Balderdash during the Napoleonic wars. Ship's surgeon Horation Hornswoggle, while passing out limes to the ailing crew members, would cheerfully say "Turn that scurvy topsy-turvy!" By common consent, he was tossed overboard. They kept the limes, though.
If Dawn gets sick it won't be from air travel. It'll be from a stroke.
That's been edited somehow, it's different from the real strip.
I read an entire book on scurvy once (titled "Scurvy", of course), and somehow the author totally missed the Hornswoggle incident. BAD research on the author's part!Either Mr. Overhead Bin is very tall, or the bins are very low, or he's standing on the seat.I hope they land on the Jurassic Park island and a T. Rex eats Dawn. Geez, I'd like to slap her.--Beagle Vet
When I first looked at this strip, I thought that Mary was talking to her air conditioner.
Wilbur should put Dawn in one of those huge overhead bins.
