That makes sense because Wilbur has spent all of your tuition on this trip.
Today's Full Strip
What astonishes me about this completely unrealistic plotline is that it's been weeks and not once has Wilbur gotten annoyed at Dawn and said "snap out of it already, you're being a real pill." Look at her holding her cheek in today's comic, as though she can just barely go on. Look how cheerfully he's been pointing out the scenery, to no avail. Oh, the irony that he writes an advice column for a living. Most advice columnists would give him a stern lashing with a wet noodle for his coddling of this over-indulged brat. The real question is: why do I care so much?And PS: it's true, that you don't have to type the number, to prove you're not a robot!
Even if we didn't suspect a Costa Concordia ripoff, I'd be worried about the structural integrity of this ship. I've never seen a cruise ship with such flimsy deck support poles or such inadequate outside railings. Pontoon boats are constructed better than this. It looks like they're on the balcony of a cheap motel.
Are we really watching out-takes from Inception?
Wilbur's shirt is making all the difference for me with this horrid story line. A variation on his amoeba-themed shirt.Wait, don't tell me, the ship reminds Dawn of Dave. The shore reminds Dawn of Dave.Don't portholes, if they open, open inwards, not outwards? No wonder Dawn wasn't overly excited about this cruise.
I notice that the sad-looking fellow on Wilbur's left has about the same dour appearance as Dawn, to say nothing of his penchant for solid colors. . . The two of them, in contrast to the Happy, Clueless Tourist (Wilbur),appear to be made for each other. Either that or this comic strip is about to turn into "Zombies on a Boat" where they chase and eat Wilbur (minus that shirt, of course). . .
oh my gosh!!!! shove her overboard and get this story going !!!!
The best thing about this strip is watching Dawn's ombre hairdo. Now, I'm embracing the geological age pacing of this comic as well. I hope G&M go for a record on this one. After all, we know there's no hope for any speed, so let's go in the other extreme. Who wants to bet that Dawn and Wilbur celebrate Christmas aboardship?Wilbur: Merry Christmas, Dawn! And here's to a great new year!Dawn: Dave celebrates Christmas. This year was brutal, and I don't see the next one being any better.
Dawn's over 18. Wilbur just needs to ditch the sulking whiner and have a nice trip on his own. Let her find her own way home. Or not.--Beagle Vet
Beagle@10.33a - NOT!
Do Moy/Gillela think that people actually dress this way?
I'm fascinated by the creepy fingers on Dawn's left arm. They can't be attached to her right arm because that is clearly extended downward under the bars.I hope they are from some kind of monster that snatchers whiners off of boats and brings them down to an underwater cave. Wouldn't that be brutal?
Has anyone else noticed the heart pendant that Dawn ALWAYS wears? I'm guessing that it's engraved "Dawn and Dave," and that she bought it herself.Not to excuse Dawn's bratty behavior, but Wilbur's nonstop, upbeat chirping would wear me out, too. Maybe they will throw each other overboard.
With the absence of any interaction or perspective other than Wilbur, Dawn's trip does indeed appear to be an extension of her education, minus the teddy bear of course.
In panel 2 the bars on the railing have widened dangerously- a small child could slip through there and plunge into the sea. Why, even a sulky college coed could slide through if she were pushed in just the right way.
It would be really sad and bad if say, one (or more) of those birds were to POOP on Dawn or Wilbur's head! I mean I would sure hate for that to happen.And yes, Dawn, ever the intellectual, has always been SO concerned about her "educational experiences". This cruise is just the ticket, and Giorgio is a genius!
In todays (Friday the 13th) strip, I'm sure we're supposed to be wondering what that big BAM was. But I'm too busy wondering how Mary and Ian got on the boat.
