As of this moment, I am officially on Dawn's side. This vacation sucks.
Today's Full Strip
You know, I think Dawn's great "romance" was totally one-sided, totally in her mind, and hidden from everyone else in her life, too. I mean, if Wilbur didn't even know Dave, I really don't think Dawn ever saw Dave's, uh, "David". (Can't put it more explicitly than that in this family-read blog!)
Translation of "groan": "I should have brought Iris instead of my mopey, sullen daughter."
It's a rule on the Amalfi Coast that the men must wear blue swimwear and the women must wear black two-piece.
Amalfi... Ron Amalfi wore a blue suit. Blue...
Doesn't the Amalfi coast have lots of cliffs? I'm just sayin'.I'm really, REALLY hoping the next couple who walks by is Dave and what's-her-name, on their honeymoon.--Beagle Vet
Beagle Vet, I think that Dave's speechless Barbie Doll clone was named Paula--it's been a long time since we've seen and never heard her. I've never been to Amalfi, but Giella's scene looks to me like Cabo San Lucas at best.
I, for one, vote for Wilbur to put his shirt back on.
YES!!!!!!! PUT THE SHIRT BACK ON!!
I loved my dad dearly, but no WAY would I want to have hung out with him solely on vacation, ESPECIALLY on a beach in our swimsuits!!! And at that age...ICK! I'm with Wanders....this vacation officially sucks! Let's go home!
@Beagle Vet and fauxprof: Paula Smith, to be exact. Possibly related to recent kidnap victim Emily Smith of Goleta - they both have blond hair.
Ifear that this vacation will send Dawn into a catatonic state from which she will never recover.
With Dawn's attitude not improving Wilbur may have to take Dawn on a year-long, around-the-world tour. Once Mary gets a taste of being Wendy she will be all to happy to continue to fill in indefinitely.
Beagle Vet is correct about the geography of the Amalfi Coast. http://www.amalficoast.com/Looks like Mr. Giella consulted the wrong guide book.
Wilbur, please leave Dawn on the beach and let the seagulls pick the flesh from her ungrateful bones!
At least we didn't have a Big Dave Head superimposed on the sun or looming over Dawn's thought bubble. OR--had M&G the geographic savvy of Beagle Vet--chiseled into the cliffs, a la Mt. Rushmore.(Actually, that may have been sort of entertaining in its own way...!)
At least we didn't have to watch Wilbur and Dawn rub tanning lotion onto each other's backs. Eew, eew, eew.
I have no problem with Giella's depiction of the beach scene on the Amalfi Coast, unless you are referring to panel two. If you're on the beach facing the water, the cliffs are behind you.
Does Wilbur say the word "Groan" in panel 2? The next time someone tells me a good joke, I'll say, "Laugh."
Life is brutal.
Did Dawn have to shave off Wilburs back hair too? The Westons are an odd bunch.I would have thought that Dawn would have stayed back in the hotel room, or condo or wherever they are staying, watching her now scratched, warped, skipping copy of "Game of Thrones".Where is Iris????
I hesitated to click on "Today's Full Strip" while looking at those two in their "semi-strip" bathing suits. Ick!
Doesn't Wilber show tremendous insensitivity by wearing blue trunks and taking Dawn to a beach where the water is blue, the sky is blue, and all the beach umbrellas are blue with blue people sitting under them? At least Dave could have been considerate enough to narrow down his favorite color, say to aqua, powder blue, navy blue, turquoise, teal, or cobalt. Then the number of hues that would remind Dawn that life is brutal would be at least somewhat limited.
