Mary Worth 1,622

I think this story was really all about saving Mary Worth's reputation for giving good advice. After last year's advice that Dawn go to Europe with her father and then their ship sinking... well, we needed a little reassurance.

Today's Full Strip

Ugh, the Mary Worth lovefest continues. Anyone else out there wanting to grab that white thing and pull it really, really tight? I sure would like to.

Is the love of Beth's life ever going to spill the beans on the first Mrs. Harpman? And the six little Harpmans for whom he's paying child support?

Now that we have segued back to Mary and her wonderfulness, expect another weeks worth of strips wherein Mary recaps the whole mishegosh to Toby.

Please tell me we don't have to have the wedding, too. Tombeth should just go down to city hall and find a nice judge, with Elinor, Mary, and perhaps Marie (aka Tony Bennett in a Bad Wig) for witnesses. Then they can disappear. After all, how can we miss them if they won't go away?

Like some of you, I too had an ominous feeling a week ago Monday when TomDear said goodbye at the door to go to his "job" (whatever that is). Once again, so many possibilities were open for a Mepic (a Moy epic). But, alas, like countless times before, it appears our hopes were raised only to knock us down again. I am now resigned to another two days and a Sunday recap of "Lives of the saints." I'm sorry, I meant to say "Life of Mary."
Of course, the NEXT story will probably be really good.........

Still no engagement ring? That girl is so naive.

Sometimes, I wish Charterstone would be hit by a meteor.

@Anonymous9:29,

While the meteor sounds like a great (and well-deserved) idea, I'm sure Moy would turn even that into a snoozefest.

Nance said...

@fauxprof--Exactly.

@Shmoopie--Even now, there are countless twists that can save this yawner. But none of them will happen. Even Elinor is back to looking gaunt and horrid.

@Wanders--Today's secret message is one of your best. Beth is such a guileless idiot that I'm sure she has never even thought of this.

In panel one, Mary is rubbing her hands together, hissing, "Excellent, excellent", just like Mr. Burns.

And to follow up on that note, won't anyone just release the hounds on this group and have away with them?

I hope Beth gets her eyeglasses adjusted before the wedding day. Crooked frames will not go with her veil!

@KitKat 8:24 - ["Anyone else out there wanting to grab that white thing and pull it really, really tight?"] I'm hoping for more of a Isadora Duncan scenario; Dr. Jeff picks Mary up to take her to dinner in his new convertible and, well, you know the rest...

TomDear will dump BethDear the minute he learns that her cheesy romance novel is ranked #6,679,068 on Enormoushop.com.

Beth had better improve her cooking skills. I understand that Paula Deen has some great recipes.

KitKat said...

@Thorpnotized at 12:50 PM, yes, on the way to dinner at the Bumboat! Mary's last words could be, "Ahhhh! Oooof! Arghhh! *$^@*%!! ."

Carlye said...

Now it's time for Mary to give some truly helpful advice: "Beth, dear, let me give you the name of a really good hairstylist".

Dawn Weston's Evil Twin said...

Mary worship! YES! We all love you, Mary!

Will Jill Black be invited to the wedding? I can't wait for that!

I can't wait for the pool party! It's about time. I'm excited.

birdie said...

I'm very disappointed. I expected the proposal to feature ukuleles and a walk on the beach. Instead, he proposed to her mother. The romance has already gone out of the relationship.

KitKat said...

Friday -

"I'm pleased that Mr. Harpman is willing to step up and take this nebbish of a daughter off my hands!"

I agree with @birdie at 8:37 AM - romance author Beth is settling for crumbs. What low standards!

Dave in Parma said...

Friday: I think the futons they apparently have scattered through the parks in Santa Royale are pretty cool. Very innovative!

Brick said...

What Elinor says today spells trouble, poor Tom.

Trouble with a capital "T"
And that rhymes with "P" and that stands for pool party.

Thorpnotized said...

Moy, if you read this, PLEASE pull the plug on this story and get us to the next pool party!

The 1st successful face transplant in comics history Skelinor has the same face as Mary.
