Mary Worth 1,529

I'm glad they've both had a chance to observe the competition and assess how they compare. The important thing is that we NOT be permitted to see the other cakes, and just take Mary Worth and John Dill at their unbiased word: Their cake is without question the best.

If that blue monstrosity that was dropped last week is representative of the competition, I fear that the DillWorth entry really may be the best. John and Mary better not gloat too much, though. The winner of the Santa Royale competition has to go on to the quarter-finals in Goleta.

Hubris, team DillWorth, hubris. There may be a smaller, less ornate, less pink cake that actually represents the Beauty of Nature.

With that kind of overweening pride, Mary,in considering this morning's news of the Pope's resignation (first time since the 15th century!), thinks she'd be a good fit for the job. Gender and religion notwithstanding, of course.

Dilly says "I" and Mary Mothernaturebutterworth says "We". It seems that there is some disagreement as to whose work this cake really is.

I'm hoping this will all end with a food fight- a gooey pink cake food fight, making a pink mess the likes of which haven't been seen since the Cat in the Hat Comes Back. They'd better have some Voom on hand.

Every so often, John Dill shows a character flaw or two. This makes me wonder if we're supposed to like him or not, root for him or not. Why so much ambiguity with this character?

Mary, of course, is perfect (as usual), so we can only surmise that once they win, John Dill will hog all the credit and suffer for it. Wanders calls it.

A Shakesperian Tragedy in Pink Sugar!

I am likewise troubled at the meta layers of consciousness inspired by this story.

I am likewise troubled that I do this to myself regularly and with glee.

John Dill's nonchalance looks a lot like megalomania!

Elaine said...

There's still a chance that John, in his gloating pride, will trip over a shoelace and knock the cake off the table. Something needs to knock that man down a peg or two, that publicity-craving hog! The fame and fortune that would follow the winning of the Cake Competition will be unbelievable!

Disqualification looms. Judges have to tast part of each layer- including the MotherMary topper- which is made of wax, clearly against the rules.

MadreMidge said...

It certainly is the best cake there. And so squeezably soft, Mr. Whipple.

Thorpnotized said...

I'm hoping the DillWorth cake doesn't win, and John goes ballistic, knocking their cake onto the floor.

Dave in Parma said...

There's no "I" in team John Dill, just a "me" as in "Mary."

I think the judges a mesmermized, mouths agape, looking at the figurine atop the cake and Chin Napkin.

So is Chin Napkin forming Mary Butternatureworth's train, or is Chin Napkin in front of her, or both? Is he now Chin Streamer?

@Anonymus Beagle Vet,

Chin Napkin, obviously, is emulating the flowing river of natural pink flowing from Mother Mary Nature's feet! It's quite a versatile textile, don't you think?

Was John Dill using the "real" Chin Napkin to wipe his sweaty brow in Sunday's 5th (yellow) panel? My local paper dropped Mary Worth a couple of years ago so I'm reduced to clicking on "today's panel." Even after employing the "zoom" feature it's still pretty darn small so I couldn't tell for sure. Couldn't be because one of Chin's fan would have mentioned it before now I guess.

My hope is that the Dill/Worth team wins. Can't you just see them - each trying to grab the trophy (think 3rd grade - Tai Kwan Do matches - 6 inches of gold plastic - every kid gets one just for showing up) away from the other one and falling into the cake. Doesn't get any better than that!

All I want to do is slap Karen Moy.

Anonymous,

That was obviously Hand Towel John Dill was using to wipe his greasy, sweaty face. Hand Towel is much less astute than Chin Napkin, Triumpher-Over-Adversity Supreme!
