Wait a minute. That doesn't look like a bologna sandwich to me. That looks like the sandwiches my wife's grandmother used to make... what was that stuff called? Oh yeah, that's it...

Today's Full Strip
Wilbur's taking back "Ask Wendy"; Mary's going to take back his sandwich. I'm surprised at Mary's tepid "Oh." I would have expected "!" or even "!!"Wilbur strikes me as the kind of guy who would be delighted to have a column that writes itself. This frees up more sandwich time.
Wilbur is pretty hairy for a guy with Lady Hands.
Are they already working on their second sandwiches? Yesterday's bite marks are gone.
...and a finger point @ Kit Kat.Wow Wanders--I haven't seen the Underwood stuff in years. That's a real blast back from my childhood.
@Yahooski: The restorative powers of the beauty of nature that Mary absorbed while at Pax and now radiate from her, have caused the sandwiches to spontaneously regenerate and become whole again. It's a Worthiverse miracle!
Wait, so where's the bad news?
Wait, wait, a "survivor" column? How long does Moy possibly believe Wilbur of Sandwich could milk that crapola? And is she aware that the Costa Concordia has been uprighted to ready it for scrapping? Perhaps Wilbur wants to glom on those "sseing it again takes me back" story lines.
Maybe someone wrote a complaint letter about Mary's crappy advice to the newspaper, and Shannon will have to come from Pax to plead Mary's case to the administration?
The most milquetoast of utterances are constantly followed by exclamation marks in the Worthyverse. It's akin to a disease, and so I think it is most significant that Mary's speech bubble today simply ends with a period. The "Oh." drops from above like a lead balloon, shattering Mary's world. Let's watch her fight for "her" column in the days to come!
I don't think it's deviled ham. I think it's something even more sinister called Potted Meat Food Product. That's a real product, with a name that seems to assume even the manufacturers don't know what's in it. Probably kelk.
@birdie at 11:39 AM, it might be Vegemite.
What will Mary do with her drive- in sized monitor and 650 button keyboard?
Mary may start her own competing column in an attempt to bury Ask Wendy.
Oh, Wilbur--I mean, Dad, you can't be serious! There's no way you can compete in the meddling--I mean, advice business with Mary Worth! For her, the "Ask Wendy" column writes itself. The platitudes flow like water from the fount of knowledge, the smugness oozes from the page like sap from a tree. Give Mary a break. She should write the column.
I'd gladly pay you Tuesday for a sandwich today.
Oh birdie, we used to eat Potted Meat Food Product in college. Underwood Deviled Ham was too expensive.Wikipedia suggests that it's similar to pate, but look at the ingredients. Ewww.Still, it's got to be tastier than Salmon Squares.Here's the Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potted_meat_food_product
