Mary Worth 1805

Suddenly Wilbur has an idea, "Hire extra help? Here's an idea. Why don't you just switch your sandwich shop from table service to counter service. You could cut half your staff and make twice as much money. Problem solved."

Today's Full Strip

Tommy (In great distress and indignation): "Bussing tables? Washing dishes? Making sandwiches? Ma, that's NOT FOR ME!!!"

Wanders, the secret message is hilarious.

Hey, a big-time ethical problem has emerged. It appears that in addition to his "I'm Alive!" column and the on again-off again "Ask Wendy," Wilbur is involved with a "Best Eats" column and has been getting special treatment from Jerry in exchange for favorable reviews. Wilbur should be investigated immediately - call the Journalism Police! (Okay, I realize that calling what Wilbur does "journalism" is quite a stretch.)

What sandwich shop has white table cloths? Oh, wait - I forgot that reality is mostly suspended in this strip. My bad!

Watch out, Jerry! Sharing may lead to unintended consequences! After Tommy ruins your shop's reputation by spreading horseradish instead of mayo on the sandwiches, you'll regret this casual aside.

What kind of help?! Really Iris? Try to keep up please.

We all know Jerry needs help coordinating his clothes. Is it really that hard to see?

Yeah, I can just see Tommy in a hair net working there making sandwiches...

I predict he'll have the reaction @fauxprof suggested. Then Iris will have to decide whether she wants to continue to be a doormat or reverse her disdain of the concept of "tough love" she recently sneered at.

Or not. That would be too interesting of a plot.

The help he needs is some cleanup in the kitchen after the food fight that destroyed his shirt.

It looks like Team Ketchup scored a major victory over Team Chocolate Sauce, and poor Jerry barely escaped with his life. The expression on his face tells the whole story.

He doesn't require much from his employees. He only asks that they be reliable and have neat, short haircuts.
