Mary Worth 1,604

Elinor is recuperating in the Doctors' Lounge? A blue cloud of cigarette smoke, a white hot spotlight, and a red hot gown, as Elinor drapes herself across a baby grand and sings,"Cry Me a River."

Today's Full Strip

Wanders, your post and the secret message are hilarious. If only we could see Elinor that way.

Well, I thought Tom was wearing a blue blazer yesterday. Turns out that he's sporting a Members Only jacket, a la his fashion fave, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:,28804,1915593_1915596_1915635,00.html

"Whatever you decide, I'll follow" is what Tom told Mahmoud, too.

How many weeks until Mary sets things straight for the Kinley family? This is getting monotonous.

Wow! Giella was in full M. C. Escher mode for the first panel, wasn't he? I can't look at it for very long without getting dizzy. The disembodied legs and head are wonderfully bizarre.

My money's on the bet BethDear will weasel out of telling MommyDearest about her beloved TomDear.

Oh no! Does that mean TomDear will get a DearJohn letter?

Whatever, can we please move this snoozefest along already?? I have a tortoise in the backyard that's moving faster than this plot.(Though not as fast as this romance...)

Nance said...

So, let me get this straight--

1. Mother is in the hospital after a life-threatening episode.

2. Her doctor says stress is a killer.

3. She hates and distrusts men after being jilted at the altar.

4. Her daughter's new boyfriend says NOW is the perfect time to tell her about their secret relationship.

5. Despite the fact that stress "may push her over the edge!", her daughter agrees that NOW is the time because love will see them through.

6. She is staying in the Doctors' Lounge rather than a standard hospital room.

7. BethDear and TomHarpman are way uglier in profile than they are face-front.

Am I up to speed?

Elinor has been housed in the Doctors' Lounge because of the severe overcrowding at Mountview. There has been an epidemic of salmon/kelk food poisoning, from Diner, the Bum Boat and Charterstone, along with EMT-administered drug reactions. Add to that a rash of people suffering from catatonia after either reading too much "Ask Wendy", or worse, talking to Mary Worth directly.

That's why simple cases of hypochondria/malingering end up in the Doctors' Lounge.

These two are morphing - I don't know into what, but something is quite definitely shifting. TomDear's delicate digits on BethDear's arm are creeping me out, and BethDear's chin is developing Lenoesque qualities. Is there perhaps a radiation leak at Mountview Hospital?

NonnyMus said...

Shmoopie, I'd agree with you except those two's heads, faces, bodies and limbs have been morphing every single panel fro the pats 3 months or so.

It's just Uncle Joe's special way with a pen, that's all.

Tom is holding Beth's right arm but her left hand is coming out of the sleeve. Weird.

Sandi Ego said...

Tom has a girly hand. Beth has a man chin. TomBeth is more than just a couple starting to look like each other. Elinor has every right to worry.

kill off the mother. give her a coronary, and let the couple live in peace without an evil manipulating witch lurking in the wings.

Thank you, Wanders, for the funniest mental image I've had all week!

Wanders, you're brilliant ... why are you focusing all this "good" on Mary Worth and not on promoting the development of Thorium as an alternative fuel?

fauxprof - your post made me laugh too hard and the dog had to leave the room. (EMT-administered drug reactions. haha!)
