Mary Worth 1,475

Uh oh. Dawn, I'm not sure that it's a good idea for you to start speaking on behalf of Jim's dead sister. He already thinks you look just like her, and now he's confusing your support for hers.

But I suppose that in a few days, this story will conclude and you'll never see him again anyways, so it really doesn't matter.

Don't you see her? She's standing right next to me.

Jim's hair has a Steve McGarrett, wind-tossed look. Book em, Dawn-O.

Ending in a few days? Our few days or Santa Royale few days?

Rope. Check
Seagull. Check

Dawn: And now that you have two arms and keep wearing that blue shirt, I realize you remind me of Dave.

Jim: Who's Dave?

Dawn: Never mind. See ya.

While contemplating yesterday's installment of MW, it occurred to me that Dawn is turning into a younger Mary. She already dresses like Mary and has a Mary-style shoulder bag. She spouts Mary-style cliches e.g., "She lives on in you." She's battered Jim into accepting a "relationship" of being "just friends"; the poor lug even says he "respects and accepts" that. So, Dawn has turned into Mary, and Jim into Dr. Jeff. How long before the old Mary and Jeff retire and disappear into the sunset? Maybe this is Karen Moy's attempt to attract a younger demographic. Hey Karen, it's not working!

Uncle Joe is taking more artistic cues from "Mark Trail" by prominently featuring that seagull in the foreground. Next up: a real bird's-eye view of the pier from above, with Dawn and Jim as distant dark figures.

What we really need to wrap up this story quickly is a tsunami hitting that pier. The sooner, the better.

@Thorpnotized: brilliant! I yearn for that bird's eye (literally) view.

Meanwhile, Pee Wee and Fran Drescher voices are really struggling to overcome the screaming voices in my head calling this out to stop.

Hey, did I call the 17th as the start for a new story? One more week of thrashing this "plot" onto the rocks just beyond the Pier should be about right. Or wrong.

That's not Merry you feel supporting you, Jim. It's the PIER!

Jim, I don't think that's your sister's support you feel. Somebody's tied a rope to your back from the pier.

Meanwhile, we are all supposed to quietly ignore the fish that has leaped up and become caught in Dawn's helmet. We have become good at ignoring the obvious, of course, and will do so until Jim blurts out, "I like your new fish! How's it working out?"

@KitKat: Ack you're right! Soon there will be a spin-off comic! But Dawn Weston just doesn't have the same ring to it as Mary Worth. It would have to be named something else. "Purple Pantsuits" maybe.

Their hair is blowing in different directions - maybe a major weather event is forming right where they're standing.

Nance said...

@birdie--All I want for Christmas is a teeshirt emblazoned with the saying

"I LIKE YOUR NEW FISH! HOW'S IT WORKING OUT?"

Mr. Grumpy said...

Please end this boring plot. It's time for a Charterstone pool party so that we can move on. Wouldn't it be great if Nola Wolvenson showed up to the pool party and started putting the moves on Ian Cameron? We need some excitement!

he could play "whack a seagull" with his new arm and not feel a thing--how cool would that be!?
