Dawn's familiarity with anatomy is as confused as Mr. Giella's.
Today's Full Strip
Is Wilbur's injured shin leading into a major plot point, or is this ripping off every detail of the Vanity Fair article?
Just saying...maybe it was Dawn's unfamiliarity with anatomy that had something to do with Dave moving on.
A skinned knee? What about all those scared, drowning passengers in the sea? How gracious of Wilbur to be unconcerned about his torn trousers. (Of course, if his algae jacket was damaged, the Robocop rescuers would be in big trouble!)
@Quaker John, remember that Michaelangelo's David reminded Dawn of Dave -- so there was obviously some familiarity.
Oh, please. I sincerely hope that Moy isn't going to rip off the story of that young woman from Georgia who had the flesh-eating disease. If she does, then this woman seriously needs to be fired pronto.
I'm with Robb@A7:44 AM. "Just a MINOR wound!" Then why do I hear ominous music in the background - da da DAAAAA! On the bright side, Wilbur's pants have retained sharp creases, and his shoes are unscuffed.Whenever I've had a scrape, scratch, or cut, I have never referred to it as a "wound." When I hear "wound," I think "gunshot."
@QuakerJohn--LOL!Shin, knee...who cares? The point is, I feel some here may be placing too much importance on a minor flesh wound. KM is obviously dragging this plotline out now in order for us to marvel about how, with all the Potential For Tragedy, Dawn and Wilbur escape with their LIVES and only a SKINNED KNEE-SHIN! HOLY CRAP! LIFE IS NOT BRUTAL AFTER ALL!...unless you are a reader of MW, in which case it's getting downright Tragically Brutal. Sigh.
@Robb,7:44. I swear, my first thought when I read this morning's strip was "cue the flesh-eating bacteria".Maybe that IS Wilbur's knee. He may have very long thigh bones which are connected to very short shin bones. Luckily, Dawn inherited her mother's great legs (see Monday's strip with the "Seven Year Itch" skirt).
Kick her in the face Wilbur!
I keep asking myself why I read this insipid comic but then I check in here for the hilarious comments and it all comes back to me."kick her in the face, Wilbur" had me almost rolling on the floor...
Glad to see that Dawn has again taken possession of the traveling necklace.
I went to Italy...and I went on a cruise...and the ship sunk...and I was rescued...and I skinned my knee...and....
OMG! Look closely at Wilbur's "knee". That is actually a child's bloody hand. What did you do to the little AIUTO! girl, Wilbur? She must have been clutching your leg while you were being raised into the chopper. This story has just taken a very dark turn- at least in my feverish imagination.
It's not a "minor wound." It's a wounded minor.
i can just see that little girl clinging to his leg as he was lifted to safety
Continuing limestone lenny's scenario: and Wilbur shaking her off ("Beat it, kid!").
maybe that little girls parents will consult "ask wendy" on how to deal with the pain of losing a child
Forget about Wilbur's knee/shin; what's going on with Dawn's left eye? There's a hand coming out of it!
Maybe Wilbur will slowly bleed to death as Dawn tries to make out with one of the robot men because they remind her of Dave.Wilbur has a vision of Saint Mary of Santa Royale waiting to take him to the Eternal Pool Party.
The incredibly spacious Barbie helicopter has a lovely inlaid wood floor.http://www.craftsman-style.info/decorating/flooring.htm
No way are those Wilbur's hooves in stylish Italian loafers.
For some reason my first thought was of Rocky Raccoon (from the Beatles) after he was shot..."it's only a scratch doc, and I'll be better just as soon as I am able..." Oh the irony if Wilbur survives the shipwreck only to be done in by the flesh-eating bacteria!
