Chin Napkin! Just when you thought this story couldn't get any better, look who shows up! Chin Napkin!
Today's Full Strip
Well, if this really the end of this particular story arc (and I have my doubts), at least we go out knowing that while it remains wall-colored, the dresser behind Dawn does not appear to be a built-in. But what what sort of books do you suppose the Westons keep in their dining room?
Wilbur's not suggesting the meal was heavy, but we saw it prepared. Flour kinda dominated, along with starchy vegetables, potato chips, and a little bacon. The burnt-orange colored goo may not have been heavy, but it was almost certainly toxic.Yeah, go for a run, guys. Don't clear the table or do the dishes first. My midwestern soul is affronted.
This could get really awesome if they walk down by THE PIER!(Cue ominous music)Maybe Jim is down there, doing a little desensitization exercise assigned by his real therapist. He sees Dawn/Merry. Suddenly, reality becomes skewed. He is back on the ferry. He lunges to save her.But DAVE, working part-time as a stevedore, has just gotten off work. He witnesses the scene. He intervenes and flings Jim aside like so much cargo. Dawn, breathless with excitement, saysDawn: Oh, Dave! You were wonderful! Thank you!Dave: It was nothing. Are you okay?Dawn: Yes, fine. Thank goodness you were here at THE PIER!Dave: Well, I have to go. Paula is waiting at our apartment.Dawn: Life is brutal.Wilbur: Isn't there an ice cream place near here?
In panel one, Dawn will be played by Mandy Marmoset.
Nance, AWESOME! And thanks to season 2 of The Wire, I know exactly how stevedores operate #amirite?
The appearance of chin napkin is the most interesting development in months.
TeacherPatti, great Wire reference. Dawn better be careful at THE PIER. The Greek Mafia may abduct her and force her into a life of dishonor. (Life would be brutal, but at least she'd be doing something constructive!)
@fauxprof at 9:13 AM, maybe the lemon wedge that Mary tossed into the concoction negated the calories, carbs, and fat. And, I also am aghast that Wilbur and Dawn are leaving those dirty dishes on the table. Perhaps the new maid, JOY, will clean up.
Mark my words, Wilbur is about to have a mild coronary. He will end up in Hospital, giving Dawn another reason to stick to her volunteer work.
Take him to the pier, Dawn! THE PIER... THE PIER... THE PIER...
Joolz, um don't you mean Joy my words? Or Dave my words. But of course, not Jim my words.
I,too, am glad to see chin napkin's return! But to wipe that chin clearly takes two hands. Or no social graces.
Wilbur, it's not the meal that was heavy... IT'S YOU!
He aint heavy; that's my Wilbur.
Joolz, if Wilbur has a heart attack, maybe they'll hook him up to the hi-fi like they did officer Whats-his-name after the shoot out at the Santa Royale Mart.
re: Dawn on Sunday: "If I help him, I'm really helping myself."And that is what it's all about Dawn, isn't it?: Helping yourself.(speaking of helping yourself, why do I find it necessary to respond to a cartoon's comment?)
Sheesh, now Karen Moy is doing product placement. http://www.drysoda.com/flavor-wild-lime.phpWho says MW plots are slow? We went from Wilbur and Dawn strolling to Jim and Dawn drinking from sippy cups (or CFL lightbulbs?), leaving a movie theater! "Skyfall" must have been a sellout, so they went to "Casablanca" instead. And, who knew that Ingrid Bergman was a blonde?
Didn't we all riff on "Casablanca" before with regard to some dialogue in the strip? No way Moy was setting up a motif.In any case, looks like Wanders and a few of us were wrong about this plot coming to an end. More's the pity. It has see-sawed so incomprehensibly so many times that it's psychotic. She IS interested in pursuing Jim as a relationship/friendship, then she's not. She wants to selflessly help others, then she sees it as a portal to helping herself. What a load of senseless baloney.And is Dawn wearing her MountainView Uniform to the movies?(Monday's strip)
I wonder how far ahead Karen Moy works? If she reads this blog, she may have been a bit ticked off by our snarky Casablanca references and song parodies a few weeks ago. "See, I am too familiar with classic movies, so there!"Hey, Jim, way to be a big spender! A retro movie and a soft drink. I admit to never having heard of dry lime soda, and had to look it up. Besides, in NE Ohio, we say "pop".
While I love Chin Napkin as much as anyone, I can't help but ponder the odd perversions of puppetry that Wilbur is going to force it thru.Is that so wrong?
I think Wilbur is doing a magic trick....maybe making food disappear.
It's still the same old story(that's all I've got)

Why is Jim using a baby bottle?--Beagle Vet
