See Tom. See Tom wash carrots. Wash, Tom, Wash. See carrots. Wait. Wha...? What happened to the carrots? And what happened to that sink? Can we start over?
Today's Full Strip
Listen, if chicken soup can be white, then carrots can turn white and plate shaped without warning, right??On the other hand, that chest-high faucet is just silly. And Tom's not even wearing an apron!!
This plot hurts my head.
I do like carrots! Oh, I do, I do, I do![Tom is washing his dog dish in panel two... the one he uses himself while eating at home.]
Beth's teaching methods remind of being a little kid helping my Dad: he'd give me a scrap of wood, a hammer and few nails and set me aside to pound them into the board. Later, I'd proudly tell Mom how I had "helped" Dad finish off the attic. Like me as a 6 year old, Tom's never going to learn anything if Beth has him doing busywork like rinsing carrots while she does the heavy lifting of preparing the chops.
So many exclamation points! So exciting! And fun!Did Beth pull the pork chops and carrots out of her shoulder bag? Bleah. What about dessert - is there room for Jello in that purse?Dialogue I'd rather have had:Beth: "I'll prepare the pork chops!"Tom: "Pork chops?! Beth, I'm Jewish!"
@Thorpnotized is right. All I could see was a white dog dish. No carrots. Actually, the carrots have nothing to do with whatever is being prepared. If he ever does get around to rinsing them, they'll be laid aside and never heard from again.(Keep repeating "carrots", and it becomes one of those nonsense words.)
Today's strip is such a Trainwreck and in so many ways.I'm with @heydave and @QuakerJohn.And, just for the record, allow me to channel Elinor for just a moment when I say that I hate pork chops.
Upon further examination of today's strip, I have an alternate explanation for the second panel. Tom is rinsing the bottom of the plastic tray the carrots were packed in. After all, Beth did not tell him to remove them from the package. Just another way for him to prove to her just how inept he is in the kitchen.
And Seinfeld was supposed to be about nothing.
Who would have thought that Elinor would turn out to be the most atractive character in this "story"?
This story is the only thing worse than plain dull: so dull that there's nothing sarcastic to add.
Who in the world washes carrots, anyway? You're going to peel them. Next up, a nice scrub for the potatoes that we are going to mash.
That must be Tom's Portable Vegetable Washing Sink he had overnighted from Williams-Sonoma. I hope Beth isn't touching her face after handling the pork. @ Chin Napkin Groupie, lol
Oh man, the new wv that just appeared is "Tamerio blood", hopefully not on the list of ingredients!
@Chin Napkin Groupie--BEST COMMENT OF THE DAY
Is a pork chop more difficult to cook than a hot dog?
Are they really talking about dinner, or does today's dialogue reek of innuendo? Carrots, quick and easy. The double entendre makes the strip more interesting - and more disturbing at the same time!
Is Tom's hand just about the same length as his forearm in Panel 2? Is that his thumb on the dog dish or is that the only carrot he managed to save when he accidently turned on the garbage disposal in the sink? And, most distressingly, is that Chin Napkin doing double duty as a dishrag?
Anonymous- some of us would be glad to see Chin Napkin do an honest panel's work.
In panel 1, are Beth & Tom talking to a LiveCam mounted in the ceiling?
