"Everyone has something wrong with them. For instance, Dawn, you have a snaggle tooth and wooden hair."
Today's Full Strip
Oh dear, Dawn's upper plate is slipping. She needs to borrow some of Mary's Fixodent. In panel two, Jim whips his head around to find that the phantom arm has evaporated again! Darn, don't you just hate it when that happens?
JIm and his invisible arm pledge allegiance to our new green-suited, blue-haired overlords.Thorp: many thanks for keeping up the Sandwich Watch. Here's my Valuable Lesson from Mary Worth this week: never get on a boat.
This dude makes manic depressive types look like real slackers with his mood changes!
"Oh yeah? Well, I'm sorry about your face!"Dawn goes back to the couch.
(Alternate dialog for panel 1)Dawn: "I'M SORRY ABOUT YOUR ARM!"Jim: "DON'T BE! I STILL HAVE THIS ONE!"No sign of any sandwiches today...
OMG. If Dawn and Jim marry, let's just hope they never have offspring. People as dopey as they should be prevented from reproducing.Joe Giella must be recycling drawings of men from his circa 1950 sketches. Jim bears absolutely no resemblance to any adult male in the United States today.
Hey Mr. Wanders..you should consider a "Person of Color" tag.
Can Moy write a cliffhanger or what?
@ KitKat - Jim changes every day. I can't figure out how old or beefy he is. Maybe a 30-something Tab Hunter? Then again, in today's second panel, he could be Rolfe, Liesl's boyfriend in Sound of Music.
Oh boy. This comic strip's "plot" is as schizo as Jim appears to be. Jim: It's just with me...it's visible.Didn't he just say previously that he has "a lot going on that the doctors can't see"? Dawn suddenly jumps into a two-month timewarp; her lunch keeps morphing; Jim's pseudo-disability is physical/psychological and may or may not involve half an arm; no one knows if Mary is still Dear Wendy; Mountainview Hospital is an equal opportunity employer; the Italian Cruise Incident/Tragedy/Disaster/Accident is now simply a vehicle for Dawn to relate to some Aryan dude; and M&G are very anti-boat, despite the name of Mary and Dr. Jeff's fave hangout.Wow.
I will do my bestto do my dutyto my countryand to obey the Scout Law.....
Does Dawn get extra credit for talking to a one-armed man?
There once was a man who was harmed,Who really didn't give a darn,But after lunch with our Dawn,he ws much less withdrawn, I guess you could say he was disarmed.
Dawn's hair looks like a helmet.
Jim looks pretty Aryan to me...lucky he was distracted by his missing arm before his arm could go any higher!--Beagle Vet
