Mary Worth 1835

I have to admit, I was expecting baking with Mary this morning. An angelic visitation is a little disappointing when your heart is set on chocolate chip cookies and girl talk.

Ohhhh, that's a wonderful secret message Wanders.

It's the Angel Mary! Nice to see her let her hair down.

Is she telling Olive to get ready to get baked?

This week, on a very special Mary Worth: The Apparitions of Olive Taylor.

KitKat said...

Are the Flower Fairies in cahoots with this angel? What's the bow thingamabob around Olive's neck? Is Karen Moy spiking her tea with an unusual substance, and/or did she think up this story while vacationing in Colorado?

I recall the classic Mel Brooks-Carl Reiner "Two-Thousand- Year-Old Man" routine: "The scientific way you die is the Angel of Death taps you on the shoulder..."

Elle S. Dee said...

Its official. The kid is psychotic. Mary should hide the knives when it comes to baking time.

Yahoonski said...

That's not an angel; that's a rose fairy on steroids, which Mr. Allora has been spraying on the roses of late. In any event, Moy has officially jumped the shark now.

LouiseF said...

I suppose this is what we get for carping about the predictability of Mary Worth. I find this change of plot direction bracing if a little unsettling.

fauxprof said...

I fear that Moy's moral (and she always has one) will be Imagination is a Bad Thing, and must be suppressed or eradicated when it occurs. Poor little Olive. Medication is probably in her future.

Thorpnotized said...

Olive is going to have a hard time convincing everyone that the angel she saw was real - considering her overactive imagination.

I Am Not A Robot said...

The angel's message to Olive: "Kill Mary Worth! She is an agent of the devil!"

But seriously, I think fauxprof has it right. Moy lives the principle 'imagination is a bad thing'.

Hark! Is that a lid I hear flipping?

Let's just be kind and say that Moy is no Ernst & Saunders.

Sandi Ego said...

Even with the fairies, I never saw this coming.
An anagram for Olive is O evil!
I, for one, am nervous.

Uncle Joe should be thrilled with this development. Want to bet he would be excellent at drawing a head spinning around? And perhaps a little projectile vomiting? This would be an fine time for the reappearance of the adulterous televangelist Johnny Thomas (Mary Worth 1264) who could perform an exorcism. Or maybe a dunking stool (a la Salem) could be installed in the Charterstone pool to test if yon wench Olive is a witch.

PS If you zoom in on the cereal box, you'll see that Olive is eating KOW CHIPS!

Sandi Ego said...

And the angel said unto them, Fear not, for I bring you tidings of great Moy, which shall be for all the people! Or at least the ones who believe in fairies and the power of the Worthiverse. Can I get an amen?!

I Am Not A Robot said...

The angel was a male?!? That blew right past me. But, now upon looking again... there is a certain 'Tommy-esque' quality about it.

But now...oh no... did I figure out the impending plot twist?!? Is Olive going to see Tommy around the complex and believe he IS the angel who visits her in her dreams? This opens the potential for a whole new career opportunity for the T-man: Cult Leader!

Imogene said...

Thursday's strip was quite enlightening: first, that angel is a boy, not a girl, and second, KOW CHIPS definitely get soggy in milk.

Also, Ed is quite good-looking; no wonder Evy wants to re-connect with him!

fauxprof said...

I don't know if Ed is meant to be a bad guy, but Uncle Joe is sure drawing him that way. (A nod there to "Roger Rabbit".)

I thought the box was labeled Wow Chips, but Kow Chips is a much better joke.

heydave said...

This thing has taken a turn beyond surreal.

meg said...

I had the Classic Comics 'Uncle Tom's Cabin'. The scene where Little Eva dies is just like the one where Angel Tommy is appearing to Olive.

meg said...

(Sorry about all the double posts)

Is this a premonition of Olive's? Is she indeed going to fall into the pool and be saved by (angel)Tommy?
And if I recall correctly, Tommy got very enthusiastic about the Bible while he was in prison. I hope there is no heart-warming inspiration in this strip's future.

birdie said...

So the child says an angel told her to stay away from the pool, and Mommy immediately says she should learn to swim.

I guess poor little Olive really must be in the way of their catching up.

Nance said...

Dude looks like a lady.

KitKat said...

Evy is awfully blase' regarding her daughter reporting that an angel gave her a message. Even more troubling, Ed hasn't even put down his reading matter. This is one weird family.

fauxprof said...

The pool is Chekhov's gun. This storyline will end (months hence) with Olive's near drowning and her indifferent parents' redemption. Sit back, this will take a while.
