Well, now we know why the cake is pink. They're using pink cake tins. That makes sense.
Today's Full Strip
Odds are, this ends up on the floor. Bada-bing!WV:kersing
Maybe Team Dillworth should consider making an angel food cake so it can use it's wings to fly over to the judging table. ;-)
Urgent Notice to all Santa Royale Cakeheads:The theme for the upcoming Cake Design Extravaganza is The Beauty of MATURE, not the beauty of nature as originally announced. Please excuse our error, and keep on designin'! You guys are the best.The CommitteeJohn Dill smiled as he read his email. This was the break he was looking for. And he resolved to grab hold of the golden pan and ride it all the way to the top, mixing cakes and metaphors as he went. John Dill KNOWS mature.
Oof. Cake is brutal.
JustSayin', I'm betting they'll stick with pound cake, all the way.
The odds and ends at our house are mugs, address labels, and extra pens. John must accumulate extremely heavy odds and ends. Too bad he didn't top things off with the urn with Eleanor's ashes, right there in the background.
Oof for Heaven's Cake.(See what I did there?)JUST CARRY THE FREAKING CAKE ALREADY!Creepiness Factor of John Dill in Panel One--9. That face. Yikes.
Surely this will be in the running for panel of the year. Then again, Joe keeps outdoing himself, so by the time the competition is over, we may look back on this panel as one of his more mundane efforts.
You would think that all the time Mary spent at the hospital picking up and moving old encyclopedia's around would have given her plenty of muscle strenght in her arms and back.
Considering all the burdens Mary has lifted for others, I would have thought she was in better shape.
This is ridiculous! Why don't they just rehearse this maneuver with one of the many practice cakes they have been making? And why does John have so many cake pans anyway? Are they using a new set each time they make a practice cake?John claimed to be "pretty strong" a few days ago, but he seems to be struggling as much as Mary. Maybe he should have chosen Ian as his assistant. I'll bet he could move that cake with one hand.
Thorp, we know that Jim could move that cake with one hand. (Okay, I'm slapping myself for this one.)
Maybe Katy Perry inspired John - is this the size of the pink cake the DillWorth team is planning to make which could be so hard to move?http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2008-10/17/content_10211496.htm
Are those cake pans or cookie tins? One does accumulate a few cookie tins over the years, but that many? And all pink? Maybe they were a Valentine's Day promotional idea for the hotel John managed, and he just brought them home.Actually, it's one of the most comical panels Uncle Joe has ever given us--Mary straining to keep hold of a leaning tower of pink cookie tins, filled, no doubt, with John Dill's depleted uranium collection.
Hilarious comments today folks. Now if only one of them would throw out their back 'practicing', we could move on to the next story line.
Thorpnotized, I think Ian would eat the cake before he got anywhere near the table. Or trip over Toby, on her knees tiling the floor.--Beagle Vet
SATURDAYSO MUCH TOUCHING IN PANEL TWO!And Panel Two contains recycled dialogue. Ugh. Have we really been discussing CAKE: designing it, icing it, the technique of it, a contest about it, and transporting it for over a MONTH now? YES. Since December 17th.I absolutely prefer pie.
Lovecraft's "At the Mountains of Madness" has nothing on this cake "plot" we're following.
Yes, the cake motif of this plot has gotten stale (hehehe) but look at it this way... at least it has nothing to do with Dawn and her narcissistic adventures.
Mary's rigid posture carrying the tins is exactly the same as when Dr Jeff tries to get frisky. Not to mention the worried look on her face.
Aside from the fact that we all hate/fear John Dill (and the bodies likely walled up in the decrepit, yet lovely, hotel he used to manage), this story is going to evolve along the lines "I had a dream/it was silly/it killed my wife/it was co-opted by an old busy body/I got jazzed/we hurt our backs/we lost/my cake was ridiculed/now the busy body is pontificating about it being better to have loved a cake than never loved a cake/now I feel dirty." Isn't it?
SUNDAY EDITION!How nice. They wrapped up 2 months of the plot in one Sunday comic. And yet, it was still boring.
Wanders, you just have to cover Saturday's unprecedented strip... it has some of Mary's hair out of place!!!!!!Plus, Sunday's training montage is pretty funny.
