Like a giant Weeble, Mary refuses to hit the ground!
Today's Full Strip
And in panel two, it's John Dill to the rescue! Or maybe not.
Maybe it's that life changing hobo from the Nola Wolvenson story. He hopped on a boxcar from Santa Royale just for the opportunity to make another cameo appearance in Mary Worth.
I don't know who Mary's rescuer is but his raccoon coat is holding up nicely.
Is there a New York law that everyone, including muggers, must wear a long coat?The scariest thing today is Mary's hand in the second panel.
Why is she yelling for help? He's just trying to tango with her!
I hope the guy running towards them turns out to be a flasher.
It's not nice to mug Mother Nature.
Is it just me or does Mr. Mugger look a little like a crazy George Harrison in panel 2??
He *does* have something je-ne-sais-Harrison about him!This strip is honestly one of the funniest things I have seen in ages. The way she hovers, the guy running toward them like he's gonna be a G and save the day, the claw, the look on her face in panel 2...I feel bad because it's a strip about an old lady getting mugged but it is really humorous.
My aunt used to stand at the bus stop, clutching her huge handbag to her chest as if she'd die before letting anyone snatch it. Of course, my aunt was slightly crazy and carried large wads of cash in that bag.The way that Mary's holding on to her purse, you'd think she was carrying hundreds of dollars - just like my aunt.Let go of the purse, Mary!
And while the rat king CONTINUES to attempt some nefarious ndeed, although we're not sure just what, Mary sets a leaning record that shames the tower in Pisa.
That's no rescuer, it's another mugger who wants to cut in on the action!
Have to agree with Peggy. Don't police usually advise not resisting in a situation like this? Is Mary going to be a hero because she risked her life for a small amount of money wrapped in cowskin?
I can't improve on @TeacherPatti's comments, so all I have to say is (besides Yay TeacherPatti) is I think that it's John Dill for the rescue also. His coat--mink, of course--is a symbol of his newfound wealth and success due to his Designs By Dill Cakerie. (Please pronounce the last word Frenchly.)Hmm...I guess I had more to say than I thought.
I once had an inflatable Bozo The Clown punching bop bag that also wouldn't go down...Maybe more appropo than cute little Weebles.
Mary's sharp dressing robber dude has a rather Liberace-esque profile in panel 2. You just know if Mary had seen him in Times Square instead, she'd have been smitten and asked him for his autograph!
