"Retired?" Is that what out of work has-beens are calling it these days?
Legendary Broadway Star rescues tourist from troll in Central Park. There's no way that's staying out of the New York Post.
Today's Full Strip
Does she also remember him from that performance of "Our American Cousin" she attended in 1863?
...sorry, 1865...mixed up my dates!
In a surprise twist, maybe is guy is Ian's father. Mary can finally call it quits with Jeff, marry him, and become what she desperately wants to be....Toby's Mother-in-Law!
Ken Kensington? Where does Moy come up with these name...good grief....
He's a Broadway SINGER, mind you, not a Broadway actor. When a song needs sung, they haul him onstage, and as soon as he's done, they cart him back off again.
Hey Gang! Let's put on a holiday show for DOSC's Promise Haven. Since we're in New York, there has to be a Rockette or two who will want to be a good Samaritan too.
That is a pathetic policeman. it looks like he's got his hat down over his eyes so he doesn't have to see any crime. Actually, he looks a lot like Barney Fife. He'll probably spring into action and shoot Mary's foot right through his pocket.
@Gina at 10:08 AM, I had exactly the same thought about "Broadway singer." Actually, Ken Kensington appeared in the Princess Theatre shows back in the 1920s (coincidentally Mary's heyday). When KK says, "It's been over a decade since I was on stage," "over a decade" really means "seven decades."
Poor Ken Kensignton, kin to Kenneth O'Kensey, his hair is turning whiter with every passing moment near to Mary! Perhaps Barney Fife can track down his blond locks.
Thanks to failing short term memory, Mary and KenKen have no recollection of the recent assult and can blissfully discuss musical theater.
Ooh, maybe Ken Kensington will invite Mary to come and watch him perform in the ''Maisie's'' Thanksgiving Day Parade! They always have Broadway singers perform on the floats. I'd love to see Giella's version of a gigantic Woody Woodpecker.
THE Ken Kensington?! OOOh, how exciting!I'd heard that since he retired he simply spent his time playing Tuesday afternoon Texas Hold-em' games with Tim Conway, Martin Mull and Fred Willard. never knew he spent the rest of the week as an avenger. I smell a fundraiser/reunion show in the offing.
If only they can put the old gang back together- Lex Lexington, Mart Martinson, Mort Mortenson, Nate Nathanson, and Harry Harrison. They can bus in rich old ladies from Katonah, Larchmont, Mamaroneck, Nutley, and Hastings on Hudson. Now THAT would be a fundraiser!
I believe he used to appear with Peter Peterson, Joseph Josephs, and Robert McRoberts as part of a barbershop quartet. They opened for Fanny Brice when Mary was just a young bride seeing her first live show.
If only Chris Christie can make it to opening night.
I thought they were in New York City, not Branson.
Oh, sigh. Mary can now encourage 2K out of retirement to do the big fundraiser for DOSC and The Haven. They can have it at Central Park and drive away the undesirables.
TUESDAYIf Ken Kensington thinks the mugging troll (a.k.a. the perp) is in his late teens-early twenties, Ken has a serious vision problem. Plus, do NYC police really carry spiral-bound notebooks?I can see it now - Mary revives Ken's foundering career when he steps into the role of Kris Kringle in "Mary Worth's Miracle on 34th Street."
'Take a note in that steno pad there laddie. The perp obviously led a hard-scrable life, aged well beyond his 14 years. He was wearing his mom's jeans, and his grandmother's housecoat. He seemingly suffers from osteoperosis which gave him a stopped walk and clenched hands, as well as a lack of muscle mass that deterred him from pushing over this matronly dame. Take him to HopeHaven where he can get himself clean, he can get a good meal, he can do whatever he feels.' As Ken Kensington and Mary walk away, content in their superiority, Officer Phil N. Good turns, tears the sheet from his steno pad and crumbles it, throwing it over his shoulder as he ambles off in pursuit of serious crimes against humanity like bad writing, poor coloring, and disproportionate art.
There it is again: that smug demeanor. "My name is Mary Worth. Yes, dear... THE Mary Worth. Oh I see you have your spiral-bound autograph book out but really, I mustn't. Oh, what the hey, I'll do anything for my adoring fans."And considering she was just in an altercation (even though she defied the laws of gravity)with a 40 year old "young ruffian", not a hair is out of place now.
I'm not surprised that none of us recognized the mugger, who looks like he is at least 45. Life has been hard for young Archie Andrews since he ran away from the safety of Riverdale for the glamorous life in New York City. Living on the street, sleeping in the park, not even able to wrest a cheap shoulderbag from an old lady. It's sad. Jughead looks even worse, and you don't want to know what Betty and Veronica have been up to.
Disappointed Yet Again @11:29AM:No,no,no. Real disappointment is being a Browns fan.
@KitKat- Kris Kringle? Cute idea, but at the rate this strip moves, 2K (Love that, Nance! It would make an excellent rap name.) will be lucky to appear as the Easter Bunny, hopefully before next Memorial Day.
WEDNESDAYAs Mary takes the arm of K2, Broadway Legend (he used to babysit for little Ethel Merman when she was in grammar school), somewhere in Vietnam Dr. Jeff feels a shiver run down his back.
KK: "eating a meal always restores my hands to normal, human-like size..."MW (thought bubble): "I can't believe I'm here with the world famous Ken Kensington"Dr. Jeff (from Vietnam): "neither can I."
Dr. Jeff has nothing to worry about. Mary needs a man whom she can lead around by the nose (like Dr. Jeff), not someone of the stature of K2. He would NEVER put up with her shenanigans! Going on vacation for months on end, coming back for a boat ride and a Bum Boat dinner and then off on another vacation without any letters/phone calls/emails in between? Indeed!
