Tonight, when I get home from work, I'll try again.
"Leave me alone, you jerk!"Once again, I'm reminded of "Thank you, Ma'am" by Langston HughesWill Mary deliver some tough love to this wayward youth, like Mrs. Luella Bates Washington Jones, or will still deliver some swift kicks to this jerk? Will there be tasing?
Wanders, you are loved and appreciated for your tireless efforts. Thanks for keeping us entertained!
Mary and Danny Partridge have been wrestlig now for three days straight. Shouldn't someone need a bathroom break? There are no "Depends" on the market that work that well!
Okay, now we see that Madame Smug has been walking around Central Park in shoes with a bit of a heel. And even so, she STILL didn't fall when Danny Partridge shoved her?? On the upside, at least we're getting treated to some pretty 'unsmug' facial expressions on her mug for a change.
This is not a very good Mary Worth PSA. As any police officer will tell you, let the mugger have the purse! Fighting back is likely to lead to serious injury or worse.On another note, I'll bet Uncle Joe hasn't had this much fun since his DC comics days. The troll even resembles The Joker sans makeup. Maybe that IS The Joker, fallen on hard times, and seeing Mary's purse as a sure fire source of Max Factor Extra Pale Pancake and bright red lipstick. He'll have to mug someone else for the green wig, though.
I think she looks remarkably like James Coburn in p2.
Catching up after being away, however briefly, is only precious and hilarious. The plot development (such as it is) is only of epic proportions.I feel like I turned away only to miss history passing by...But..Sensible shoes, Mary!Mugging: you're not doing it right, Troll!
I'm pretty sure Giella is being held hostage in some dank basement, while Ms. Moy and/or the syndicate produce these stories and use up every scrap of art Giella has ever created during his long drawing career. It is only when a story requires some totally new action (i.e., mugging in progress), that they let Giella out into the sunlight and lead him to his drawing desk for a few hours or days.The insanity we see on the mugger's face and the viciousness of the attack on Mary is proof to me that we are witnessing a desperate cry, nay, roar, for help.FREE GIELLA!!!
What a face - is Mary morphing into the Incredible Meddler? Tomorrow she'll have the handbag strap and maybe her scarf wrapped around the throat of the mugging troll.
cooool..."leave me alone you jerk!" would come across even more Aldo-ish, though, if she were packin' heat!
Mary's outburst must have made Mr. Muggles soil his blue pants, because now they are gray.
@Anonymous-12:14 PM; His pants were already grey in the second panel yesterday.
I'm seeing more Martin Scorcese, sans glasses...http://www.beyondhollywood.com/martin-scorsese-on-the-case-of-the-snowman/martin-scorsese-2/
I wonder if she is so ready for fight for that purse, because she has DOSC' plaque in it, and she was on her way to the engravers to get that, less than perfect woman's name off of it and replaced with her own!
Just to amplify what fauxprof said regarding Mary's inadequate PSA. .. How does Mary know her assailant doesn't have a gun??? Is she overcome with pique just because she is in the nervy big city?? The longer she stays in New York, the mouthier she gets?? Mary living dangerously. . .I like it.
Dear Wendy,When confronted by a mugger what should one do? "Afraid in New York"Dear Afraid,Be confident and ward him off by saying something like "Leave me alone you jerk! It has always worked for me.
