Mary Worth 1,356

Judging by the voltage radiating from the passengers, it's obvious that there's no problem with electricity.

Today's Full Strip

I don't recall the VF investigation mentioning anything about a rare spontaneous Hora breaking out.

That's not radiation, those are just more apostrophes, indicating that they aren't "people", just characters.

Well Dawn, since all the lights went out one could probably surmise that there is an electrical problem. But since the ship is listing, it's probably more than an electrical problem. What college is Dawn attending again?

Thanks to that Vanity Fair article, we now know what "*&^%$" means. But I'm disappointed we didn't get to see Giella's depiction of the eggplant-and-feta appetizers.

Today we have a glaring punctuation error - too many double quotes. "ELECTRICAL" PROBLEM" should have been caught by a proofreader somewhere along the way.

@Barbara Hanson & Nance: Thank you both for the smiles you've given me this morning. Takes my mind of this distressing storyline...

Obviously, the ship has become aligned with the magnetic poles and the passengers will all head int he same direction.

Are we really going to follow "reality" here? I would love to see Mary commandeer the hovercraft of goodliness in to save the day.

[I should have written "takes my mind off", not "takes my mind of". I guess I need a proofreader as well.]

By the way, I don't remember who mentioned it earlier, but in case anyone missed it, you don't need to include the numerical image to prove you're not a robot. It works with just the word.

We've been waiting since Friday to find out what Captain Crunch DIDN'T see. Hey Karen Moy, are you ever going to show us what prompted his "*&^96$!"? Left to my own devices, I think "it" was the bullet Mary dodged last year, when she first patronized Diner. (There was never any details about that, either!)

Gosh, I hope Joseph Mantegna is able to get off Ship safely.

We are using this blog to discuss a Vanity Fair article about a real-life tragedy to help decipher a comic strip with fake characters reenacting a real-life tragedy with fake elements. My head is crackling with electricity.

Ever since the first "BAM", the reaction of the background passengers has been to dance. It may indeed be the Hora, or perhaps a country line dance. I think I hear Big Blonde Lady singing "Achy Breaky Heart".

(It appears my robot word has a Cyrillic character in it. This may take two tries.)

You actually think there is a proofreader of this strip? They can't catch the huge drawing errors - why would they catch a second quote mark?

If graduated college with an English degree and got a job proof reading MW, I'd think life was brutal.

Hey - maybe that's the problem.

And would they please decide whether Dawn is wearing a necklace or not. Maybe it's a magic necklace that only appears when Dawn is thinking about Dave. Sigh!
