Mary Worth 1957

My wife and I met as graduate students at the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati. Trust me. Musicians talk like this all the time.

Today's Full Strip

Welcome to the latest episode of Double Entendre Theatre. Can a simple kind of gal from Charterstone find happiness and gain the courage to play a duet with a slick piano man from Somerset? Tune in tomorrow to find out.

On second thought, don't bother: tomorrow's episode will feature a smug Mary Worth presenting a grotesque turkey to a table of her freeloading friends. This is your announcer speaking.

meg, it's not so much the turkey that bothers me at Mary's holiday feasts, it's the side dishes and garnishes. On Thanksgiving, the bird was surrounded by either:

1. New potatoes
2. Dumplings
3 Gluten balls
4 Unidentifiable internal organs

I'd go on, but it gets more nightmarish as I speculate.

So musicians talk like this all the time? I roared.

Is it just me or does Sean sound a little arrogant about his musical ability versus Hanna's? We'll "meet in the middle" sounds like he thinks he will have to tone his talent down a few notches.

Hanna seems a bit outraged that Sean would dare suggest they do a duet. Her head is shaking with indignation and she's ready to drop her sandwich.

Hanna has got to get a grip. Her whole face is discombobulated. I'm holding out hope for a pig with an apple in its mouth for Mary's Christmas feast. And an awesome quote.

Hey, what kind of diner serves sandwiches with 3 halves!

Seeing as Wilbur isn't in any background shot. I call foul.

Where to start today? How about Sean in P1 holding what appears to be a set of those novelty chattering teeth instead of a sandwich? Or the grotesque wrinkles on the arm of the person in the right foreground? And speaking of sandwiches, the half in Hanna's hand has one more layer of whatever (mean tuna?) than the one on her plate. But wait. That appears to be a WHOLE sandwich on her plate. Is she eating half of Sean's before she starts on her own? And what's that green thing in the painting on the wall? Another sandwich? A container for taking home sandwich leftovers? Perhaps Wilbur could answer all these sandwich questions.

I don't get it. What does that panel even MEAN? "I have to practice before we "MEET UP"?

Haven't they already met (up)? Is "meet up" really another term for "Playing together"?

Why does Hanna look like a really scary sci-fi insect?

Merry Christmas/Happy Holiday everyone!
