Today's Full Strip
Mary needs one of those big foam fingers, since she seems to be indicating "we're Number One!".
Why is Mary asking for John's recipe before she's even tasted the cake? You don't need a recipe to design or decorate a cake. The cake might taste as bad as Mary's ghost pie.
I don't know why, but the deliberate way Mary says this makes me think she's being flirty.
Wanders, did your daughter apply to Santa Royale Local University?
Wanders, I suggested that to both my daughters when they went off to college. Attending class together, frat parties, chillaxing in the dorm... sadly, neither thought it was a great idea. Because who wants someone butting in uninvited, right, Mary? That woman is amazing at pivoting from sympathy to opportunity in mere moments.
The thing I like best about Mary Worth is the bizarre depiction of food items. What's on top of that cake? Salt and Pepper shakers? Old Avon perfume bottles? Game of Thrones action figures? Add to that the relative size of the layers. Each layer must be about four inches thick. An enormous wedge has been cut out in the last panel, yet the guests only have tint smidgins on their plates. (Orange shirt blonde lady seems to be brushing her teeth with her portion.)So far, I'm loving this storyline.
One piece of that cake will serve eleventy people. It's insane. John Dill should market his cakes as desserts that can also serve as temporary low cost housing for the poor.He can feed and house the homeless at the same time. Win Win.
I'm rooting for the decorating team of Dr. Jeff Corey and his soon-to-be new girlfriend, Nola Wolverson. Nola always gets what she wants!
I don't see how this experience could be uplifting to Mr. Dill in any way. I see no outcome other than a soul-crushing, demoralizing experince for our friend John. Mary's micromanaging, nitpicking, and constant criticism (in the disguise as platitudes) should drive Mr. Dill into complete disappointment and dispair. And when Mary runs around the winner's circle waving the trophy over her head without a word of acknowledgement for Mr. Dill the utter destruction of Mr. Dill's will to go on shall be complete. And Mary will move on to her next victim. This storyline is fun so far!Question: What if Mr. Dill only knows how to make ginormous pink unicorn cakes and nothing else?
I'm perplexed. Exactly what will Mary's contribution be as half of this team, besides offer moral support?
Oh, thank you, Toby! If you hadn't asked that question, we would have all been left wondering.
