Mary Worth 1,617

I have posted today's entire strip because panel 1 clearly proves that Elinor has become nothing more than a pod hosting Mary Worth's spawn. And panel two is one of my favorite lines of dialog of all time. I'm glad Tom has found another girl to cook for him. One heavily salted flounder, head on, coming up!

Santa Royale, California bears an eerie resemblance to Stepford, Connecticut. Instead of Stepford Wives, the android factory turns out Charterstone Hags, all indistinguishable in attitude from the prototype, Mary Worth.

Why don't they go to the Bumboat? With any luck, they can join Mary and Jeff.

They had better not be dining out. After all, Eleanor needs her rest just being out of hospital and all even if it was a fake heart attack.

Seafood sounds REALLY GREAT, too! So great it's turned my entire eye inside out from twitching at the mere thought!

Panel Two has to be in the Worthies for the goofiest, most unintentional sexual innuendo gone wrong.

Is there still time to save this plot? Can TomHarpman have an unknown deadly seafood allergy, go into anaphylactic shock, and die right there in front of Elinor and Beth?

Never mind...I know...Sigh.

To fully complete her transformation, Elinor would have requested asparagus.

Have the last encounter with heavily salted fish head, Tom has that "Mmmmmmm!Mutton!" look.

I so wish this wasn't a family friendly blog. I have so much to say about panel two.

Darn! And I was hoping for lamb and asparagus!

Further evidence that tool Tom is Aqua Man not eating seafood.

My favorite baseball pitcher of all time is 6 fingers Beth Kinsley.

How thoughtful... TomDear is showing his intention to be cooperative by sacrificing his craving for meat to placate future mother-in-law. Aww...

Fast forward to 5 years later...
Elinor: "Beth, I want seafood tonight".
Tom: "No, you old bat. It's meat tonight. No more seafood. Meat and lots of it!"
Beth: "I'm so sick of the both of you. It's going to be neither seafood NOR meat. It's going to be TOFU, darn it! Today and every day; just gosh darn tofu!"

Now I know why Mrs Harpman left Tom he prefers eating cold franks only.

Ah, the age old dilemma: Fish or Meat.

Beth's purple jacket and black shirt have now morphed into purple blouse. I'll bet Seafood morphs into Meat. Or into my wv, which is Flesh Ouishe.

I think Muhammed has the Kinslys confused with Funny Peoples, (although it's possible TomDear is a troll and maybe that's why Mrs. Harpman divorced him!) At any rate, everyone is having seafood tonite and that's that.

I was SO hoping that in the second panel Tom would open his mouth wide and say, "See? Food!"

If Beth is cooking, Tom had better rush down to Costco and pick up a ten pound bag of salt.
