Mary Worth 1,470

Jim. Jim. I think you mean, "Of all the piers in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine."

Today's Full Strip

I'm going to say that Jim's suddenly unpinned sleeve and seemingly whole arm here means his absence of "several weeks" was to get fitted for and receive therapy with a prosthetic.

But doesn't he look different facially, too?

What a hokey storyline with hokey dialog in today's strip. The plot is full of holes as well. Urk.

(thanks for the info re: Kelk)

I've been away from the blog for a couple of days, so I just caught up on everyone's comments from Friday and Saturday. What a talented, hilarious group you are, from Wanders on down! Thanks to all of you.

On to Sunday's strip - what a treasure-trove of unique MW moments, beginning with Jim's head in a bubble, the Seagulls of Love, pointing fingers, etc. Dawn's daisy looks like one of those novelties that spray water into the face of an unwitting person. Too bad she threw it so forcefully over the side of the pier before Jim's entrance.

Anyone else wondering at the significance of Jim's sleeve not being pinned? Is this a metaphor for his emotional healing, or did his arm grow back?

Word verification: "xceedna" = What Jim took to make his arm grow back

I guess Mountview Hospital's Emotional Hurdles physical therapy program worked!

I'm disappointed we probably won't see Wilbur's newspaper's "One-Armed Man Takes Coed Hostage" headline, though.

I'm sure you're right Nance. Dawn's reaction will convince him that it was all about the arm afterall.

He's better, stronger, faster than he was...OK, it's just a bionic arm, and not both legs and an eye as well, like Steve Austin. But, adjusting for inflation, it's still $6,000,000.

(This popular culture stuff is why I'm faux. Gets no respect.)

As Mike from Mystery Science Theater 3000 once said, "Never quote a good movie in the middle of your crappy movie." Or crappy comic!

"Jim, what are you doing here? And how do you have 2 arms now??"

"Well Dawn, don't I have a right to BEAR ARMS? Hahaha... but seriously I'm here to kill you with my newly attached arm cannon."
