Based on the Elbert Hubbard quote and Dear Old Shelly Cohen's thought balloon, it is clear that Shelly now thinks of Mary in the same patronizing and pitiful way she thinks of all the Promise Haven hobos.
Today's Full Strip
Shelly passes up the elegant rhinestone evening clutch and goes for the big, leather saddlebag. Guess she's planning on sneaking out of the Waldorf with doggie bags for herself and Mary. And some silverware too. And she' ll carry her award home in it.
If DOSC is going to be part of the MW family of characters, she has to carry the requisite brown square shoulder bag.
Mary's story of her life as a street urchin is so impressive that Shelly Cohen has taken on the role of remembering it, polishing it like fine silver.Is this story going to be told, either by Mary, or subcontracted out to Shelly? Maybe Dr. Smith can tell Mary's story. He was exposed to the majesty of Mary and must have absorbed the importance of her story. He probably even abandoned his story (which, let's admit it, wasn't all that memorable) and taken up the mantle of carrying the story to the people.We did hear the story before though. Mary was blowing on a dandelion because she was poor and didn't have toys. The plaster was cracked and Mary was sad. Sad Mary keep on burnin'
Shelly's got a brand new bag!
Dear Old Shelly Cohen Mary is very well off so I say take her for everything she is worth. In one else wondering what kind of trouble Mary might of gotten if she had gone to Vietnam with Jeff?
...and here I was thinking that the colorist was celebrating Halloween three days late by making everyone a ghost!
L. Bert Hubbard?
Shelly- step away from your plastic surgeon. Your nose is starting to look like Michael Jackson's in the last panel.
Shelly had to look really hard for the bargain bag that was 80% off. And isn't it going to look elegant with her evening gown? Too bad that Mary didn't tell her about all the money she has to go to expensive spas in the desert!
Just to be fair, Chester here shops at L&T, and it is a very nice store. The sales people are great, and, with coupons, you can get a deal! My mother took me there for school clothes back in the Sixties!
