"I'm not talking about you or Wilbur. I'm talking about a magical genie."
Today's Full Strip
Wanders is on to something - a genie is about to materialize from the vapors emanating from Mary's cup. I'm hoping for Shaquille O'Neal in "Kazaam." Or, how about Mr. Clean? He could provide that extra help.If Iris is this distressed over her breakup with Wilbur, her standards must be at rock bottom. A pudgy schlub with a comb-over who can't even handle a dopey advice column? Not exactly George Clooney, is he?
Mary has exquisite taste in artwork.
How about stationing him in front of Diner or Jerry's, holding a sign that says "will work for food". That's all the extra help a go-getter like Tommy should need.
This strip is so devoid of reality that it is nothing short of comic genius. Wilbur has asked Mary to take over his column so he could concentrate on helping Tommy find a job and—hopefully—make some headway in the romance department with Iris. A couple of days ago we learned that “a few weeks” had gone by since the ill-fated diner incident. My question: What has Wilbur been up to in the meantime? We know Tommy is comfortably ensconced on his mom’s couch fiddling with Wilbur’s laptop, Iris is forever walking through the front door returning from University and Mary keeps on baking muffins and boiling beverages. But what about Wilbur? Is he moping around his apartment in his underpants gorging himself on mayo and Cheetos sandwiches? Is he unshaven and unwashed since “the incident?” Is he at least able to publish his survivor column? Enough already with Tommy, I need some intel on Wilbur!
"Messed up? Messed up?! You've been able to avoid Wilbur! You've won! Maybe Iris is Tommy's biggest customer..."Wilbur helped too. He gave Tommy his laptop to hock." (sigh)
What more can Tommy possibly do? The Post Office just wasn't for him.
