I hope that Mary and John plan to work in John's kitchen. The way that Mary's walls, windows, and appliances move around, John could wind up dead if they work in hers.
Today's Full Strip
Mary's spoon, like this "plot," drips with excitement. Or something.
With the level of seriousness these two are approaching the contest, you'd think they were working towards the Nobel Prize or something... Geez, lighten up already! It's only CAKE!
Panel two is truly disturbing today. The perspective change between the counter top and cabinets is peculiar. And that refrigerator seems to be sneaking up on Mary, who appears to be lactating while she multitasks in her snazzy monogrammed apron.
Like Thorp, I noticed the frilly monogrammed apron. Actually, I found myself fixating on it. With the kitchen morphing around Mary so rapidly, I found it better to stare at a fixed point. Doesn't that look more like a logo than a monogram? Perhaps she is planning to incorporate herself?
The logo looks familiar. I think she swiped the apron from a covenience store.
Wanders - your comment gives a different perspective to Mary's statement, "I know my way around a kitchen." She must have figured out when/how things move around to keep from getting maimed.
Talk about snazzy - what's up with those Barbie pink curtains that suddenly made an appearance? I love this contest - Mary is about to come into her own. When she says, 'We'll work hard...' she really means 'Step aside, cake minion, and see how this really works!' Bwah hahahahahaha...
I'm getting vertigo looking at Mary's kitchen. I wish it would finish its transformation back into a salmon-colored Camaro.
As we all know, Cake is Serious Business. Witness all the bellicose cake-centred shows on the various networks: Cupcake Wars, Cake Boss, Ultimate Cake-Off, Wedding Cake Wars, The Challenge (which isn't always cake-themed, but often is). There is a lot of drama and angst about cake.Now the Cake Tension is heightened to a frightening pinnacle of dizziness in "Mary Worth," where food has always been a bit of a contest for readers anyway. As in, "What the heck is that stuff?"It was time for cakes to get theirs. I was already saddened beyond belief by what this strip has done to PIE.
I am so excited over this storyline that I'm falling asl...zzzzzzzz.
I have to wonder if we will get to see any of the competitors' cakes. If so, they will probably be white and/or grey, and only John Dill's will be in color.
In Santa Royale, cake design is a rigorous sport, that requires the mental and physical toughness of a triathelete. Proper preparation and conditioning are necessary to compete at this such a high level.
Looks like John Dill entered into more than a cake contest. Seems that he has also signed-up for Mary Worth's Cake Making Bootcamp. That spoon isn't for cooking - it's for administering severe punishment any time John steps out of line. Prepare for your canings Mr. Dill.
Is anyone else worried about the giant fingerprint on Mary's fridge in panel 1?
MissScarlet, I wondered about that, too. What about those asbestos ceiling tiles? I didn't know Charterstone was that old.
That's not a fingerprint; it is the shading, usually done in blue, reserved for male hair in the Worthiverse.Fast forward to May, as Mary and John bitterly accept the 3rd place "thanks for participating in the 3rd Annual Santa Royale Cake-off, brought to you by Betty Crocker" award, as Mary exclaims "Let them eat cake!"
Maybe Ms. Moy is going to combine a couple of unreality show genres, the cake genre and the finding Bigfoot genre. I bet that Bigfoot fingerprint would cause the "Finding Bigfoot" twits' heads to explode.Someone with a lot of free time has put together floor plans of some homes from famous TV shows, like the Brady house. I wonder if someone could do the same for the Worthiverse? Or would that make THEIR head explode?--Beagle Vet
I think Mary is a sith lord and is trying to convert John to the dark side via cake baking.
