Yay! We will eat the Bum Boat once more! Thank you Mary Worth, oh thank you!
Today's Full Strip
Why does James Lipton look so angry? I would assume that Mary didn't tip, or maybe he's upset that Frannie and weepy Mom will now be back to grift another meal from do-gooders and men who looks like Dr. Zaius.
There's something so familiar about the dialog in panel one...something from way back in my childhood....Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear..."Who was that masked man? I wanted to thank him.""I don't know, but he left something for you. This silver bullet.""Hi-yo Silver! Away!""Get-um up, Scout. We go to pool party."
What pasta strand headed Servy McServerton meant to say was, "Mary Worth asked to remain anonymous...
What the server didn't say was "this gift certificate for $15." No scallop special next time, Frannie.Tomorrow, will weepy Mommy say say that she's always depended on the kindness of strangers?
KitKat- that was STELLAR! STELLAR!
I'm betting that weeping Mommy and the adorable-well mannered freckled Frannie will be moving into the vacant unit at Charterstone. She'll meet Mary and tell her about how being on the receiving end of a random act of kindness turned her world around, how she's overcome the dastardly deeds of her ex-husband, etc. etc. ad nauseam. Mary will prattle on about being nice to the nice is nice, etc. etc. Weeping Mommy will then "pay it forward" somehow and we'll move on to the next heart stirring adventure.
Indeed, when my entire life is falling apart and I'm about to be utterly impoverished, the knowledge that I could have one more Bum Boat meal would make all the difference. All of it.And as for your brilliant secret maessage, Wanders, well, I think now we know the secret ingredient in Mary's trademark salmon squares.
Forgot to mention...perhaps love is in the air once weeping Mommy meets the lovelorn Wilbur? Then Mary can go for the rare and risky triple-meddle by consoling a regretful Iris.
McSnooty brothers with comb-overs can ONLY get jobs at the Bum Boat, and that's a fact. You have to grow a beard to get any tips. It's a tough gig.
Sunday.Paying for their meal? Nice. Gift certificate for two free meals? Maybe a little pushy. But the note? WAY over the top, Mary.(First prize, a free dinner at the Bum Boat. Second prize, TWO free dinners at the Bum Boat.)
Is Mary giving herself a thumbs up in Friday's strip?
SUNDAYThe End. And another thrilling Plot Line meets its denouement. Meddle complete. Mary rides off into the sunset. NEXT!
I appreciate the free dinners at this spectacular seafood establishment, but I must admit that I'm a bit skeeved out by the creepy note! Amirite?
This can be a true story.This is life, it happens all thetime. Love to see someone happy.It made Mary feel good about herself.
