Mary is mesmerized, as are we all, by Ken's yellow toupee and its remarkable tenacity for staying adhered to his scalp in this biting wind.
Don't forget, just a few more days to vote for the 2013 Worthy Awards!
Today's Full Strip
Since Mary's eyes are pinkish, with stripes, the scarf matches perfectly. Now, how about a pair of mittens for those frost bitten hands?
The scarf guy in the background looks like a bad Asian stereotype.Mary should consider staying in NY...think of the millions of people she can meddle with.
Is there a "$10 Gloves" stand around the corner? Is that green get-up what street vendors wear in NYC, or have Mary and K2 been spirited into North Korea?
KK gives only the finest knockoffs to his leading ladies. That fetching scarf must be a Herpes or Goochi. I bet it would look fabulous with Shelly's L&T handbag.
In the second panel, Ken has Mary right where he wants her. If he convinces her to stay in New York, he can pull her towards him for a kiss. If she refuses, he can pull that scarf a little tighter, and tighter, and tighter...
Her (blue) lips are saying yes, but her cocked fist is saying "Careful, buster."
If Mary doesn't return to Santa Royale soon, she had better find a local doctor who can get her back on her regular Botox regimen. She's looking worse every day.
Since when has Mary ever been without her requisite neckerchief? Ken has sadly overlooked the blue scarf that Green Vendor has for sale. This accounts for Mary's terse and lackluster reply which sounds more like a response to a doorman than a love interest.Doorman: Hi, Mrs. Worth. Can I help you with those packages?Mary Worth: Sure. Thank you Ken.
My Dear Sir, may I inquire as to how much those $10 scarves are?
Meanwhile, Dr. Jeff has yet another exotic beverage served up to him in the warm evening sun by a barely clad girl of the tropics...
With all of the women available to a Broadway legend in a city like New York, K2 falls for Mary. There is something very wrong with this picture, besides the toupee, of course. I hope someone checks out his basement for shallow graves.
Already looks like he's choking her by the way her eyes seem to be bugging out in panel 2.
Ken is totally oblivious. Can't he read Mary's body language? Today's clenched fist, yesterday's raised fist to ward him off, the torso shrinking away from him. Mary is a committment-o-phobe. Get a clue, Ken Kensington! (Will he go the way of Aldo Kelrast?)
Is it just me, or does it look like Ken and Mary both have horns?
Yes, they do appear to have horns. Mary looks like some kind of elf/troll/hobbit hybrid. The troll of central park? And what's going on with that tree? It seems to be growing out of some kind of magnifying box.
Sunday's strip:Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't today the first time that Mary has even thought of Dr. Jeff Cory since she's been in NY? And, of course, that suave commitment-o-phobe Mary Worth doesn't bother to tell Ken Kensington that she's "dating" someone already. All the better for when it's time to break his heart. Sigh!
Let's be honest here, Mary; he's better looking than Ken but he's no John Wayne.
Let's be honest here. Jeff is better looking than Ken, markedly better on a windy day, but he's no John Wayne.
Wow, apparently the wind makes Mary and KK age about 15 years. Was Giella drunk when he drew this?
Please, please, let Jeff tell Mary he's coming to join her in New York.
I hope Jeff texted Mary to tell her he met the love of his life in Vietnam, and that they tied the knot and are flying to Santa Royale for a champagne wedding reception.
