Woah. Horse Face. Jim panics and excuses himself from the conversation as quickly as possible. He's pretty good, but it's obvious he'll never speak to her again.
Today's Full Strip
Panel one Dawn is now morphing into Mr. Burns: "Excellent!" Next thing we know she'll be releasing the hounds on poor Wilbur.
Oh, let us reminisce about the good ol' days. Remember conniving Nola Wolverson? Drunken tirades from Jill Black? How about Liza, the stalker nurse? All we have had for months now is droopy Dawn. Please, we need someone to bring the crazy again, so Mary will have something to work with!(Yay, Quaker John. I immediately noted the Simpsonian "excellent" pose Dawn strikes in panel one.)
Yeah, the first thing I noticed today is that Dawn is really ugly.
It's another secret message from Uncle Joe. One of these days he's gonna do stick figures.
No, no, no!A full damn week of these two clowns sitting at a hospital table, swapping stories of "woe is me/don't cry for me!"I have been officially gagged. I just don't have the constitution to fathom this nonsense. (Catch that nautical reference? Huh, did ja'?)
What boggles my mind is that Karen Moy is paid money to write this. Actual money! Here is a job that I wouldn't mind being taken by a non-American
How did Moy get this gig, anyway? I picture her walking by the cartoonist's desk and noticing that it's empty. Like a crab discovering an empty shell, she moves in and makes herself at home. She writes stilted letters supposedly from the management offering her the position and starts to send Joe his copy. Joe, working in a different office, is suspicious, but doesn't want to accuse her directly. So he puts all sorts of hints into his drawings, trying to get somebody- anybody- to declare that something is wrong. Day after day he sends these SOS signals, but they are missed because nobody reads the strip, except a few people who are so busy laughing we don't recognize the seriosuness of the situation.The problem with this theory is that I don't think Moy could write a believable letter from management. But then again, maybe nobody's asked to see one. Maybe her office really is run like Wilbur's newspaper.
My wife and I got together because we had Segway accidents in common.Whoa Dawn!--that uni-brow would make Sesame Street's Bert, or NBA rookie Anthony Davis proud.Well stated Quaker John--couldn't put a finger on where I'd seen that.
You know what this story is missing? Wilbur! Dawn is boring and whiny, Wilbur is all that and a ham sandwich! When will we get an update about Wilbur's eyewitness account of the ship's sinking? Is Mary still writing his column for him, or is he writing that, and the shipwreck story as well? We need a Wilbur update, ASAP!
Is it wrong of me to hope Wilbur will still lose his leg to a flesh-eating bacteria and there will be the incredibly poignant moment walking Dawn down the church aisle where Jim is waiting to offer his hand in marriage?
@fauxprof:YES! Please, please, please bring back Nola Wolverson! She was the BEST Mary Worth character EVER!
