Just a timely reminder that we are a family friendly blog. No matter how lewd and coarse this strip becomes, we will always maintain a higher standard. Prurient and salacious innuendo will not be tolerated.
The Condo Board
Today's Full Strip
Just to emphasize that MW is family-friendly, Giella has drawn John Dill to resemble an older Walt Disney. Albeit a somewhat sinister Walt. But clearly more family-friendly than Gary Glitter!
Best dialogue since "Reminds me of Dave". Guess Dr. Jeff has something to worry about after all.(My robot word is "urenot", as in "urenot serious, Karen Moy, are you?"
That woman in the video is certainly constructing a beautiful pink cake, the perfect base for unicorn decorations. Maybe Pink Cake should be up for a Worthy Award next year. So versatile!
Oh, this is going to be good!
As for panel 1, I've always said you can never go wrong with a little 'chalk talk'/film review before a cake competition.As for panel 2, with all the things that could have been posted as comments, all I can add to this panel of the decade candidate is that it was wise to get ahead of it.p.s. That's what she said.
It's better than cocoa, Mary.
! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !!!!!But, beyond that:1. What, exactly, is the amazing "technique" being displayed in the DVD? Looks like basic old frosting of a basic old cake to me. Duh.2. Is the "technique" the fact that the contestant is barely holding the "knife" and looks like she is flipping it?3. What are the odds, really, that John Dill IS actually being salacious?
If Mary loses part of her arm in a cake making accident this is what would happen:http://comicbooth.com/blogengine.net/post/Captain-Cook.aspx
When frosting a cake, good technique demands that you work on the side of the cake facing away from you and that you smile at all times.
I'm with @Nance at 9:03 AM. If this is an example of a prize-worthy entry, the Santa Royale Cake Design Extravaganza is going to be a snoozer.John's comment coupled with his exposed chest hair is certainly off-putting! There are no photos of the dearly (or not) departed Eleanor in sight. I'd like the scoop on the Dill marriage.
OK, innuendos aside... do people actually demonstrate their cake decorating techniques at these contests? I was under the impression that people simply showed up with their cake entries already decorated. Or are Mary and John watching a DVD of a reality TV show that I somehow missed: Jersey Bakers?
I hope Mary has brought her trusty wooden spoon with her, in case Dill gets grabby while showing her his technique. A few good whacks should keep him in line.
Yes, the technique is to position yourself on the opposite side of the side you are frosting, so that it is impossible to see what you are doing. You get some very interesting results that way. And speaking of impossibilities, try holding your left hand out like Mary is doing in panel 2.
Next, John and Mary watch a video of paint drying.
I'm not touching panel two. I think Moy is toying with us and I have half a mind to complain that such nonsense should not be on the comics page.The unique cake decorating technique seem to be to frost the cake in a dark room, with the available light streaming directly from your head. I'm not sure if the dvd gives instructions on how to accomplish that.
My next DVD I'm ordering from Amazon:http://www.amazon.com/Wilton-Cake-Decorating-Basics-DVD/dp/B000OSFIN2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358353808&sr=8-1&keywords=cake+decorating+dvd
That's the way you do it,You get your frosting for nothing and your cakes for free
Must... resist... urge... to... make... naughty... joke... about... creamy... filling!Part of my verification was ''bletterl''- which sounds like something that can be found in the dairy aisle, from the friendly folks at Kelk, now there's Bletterl! It spreads, it blends, it's better than... Oops, make that Bletter than butter! It's Bletterl!
Too. Dumb. For. Words.
"....as the vicar said to the actress..."
Let's not be too quick to blame John Dill; Mary is clearly leading him on.
the woman on the dvd is that a grown up version of the girl kidnapped from goletta ?
Is it o.k. if the innuendo is in a cake frosting video? (I honestly found this while searching for something else and found it amusing!)
I'm confused...I thought John already knew how to decorate a cake and now he's watching a basic video on how to slap on frosting? I don't see a blue ribbon in his future.
