Mary Worth 2091

Those seagulls are looking at that mugger carcass and hoping for a little late night carrion.

Today's strip

This week has been such fun for Uncle Joe!

Why is Terry carrying a gun? Doesn't she work in cybersecurity? Does she need to virtually protect herself from hackers?

Who the heck wears brown suits these days? Nothing like physical violence and gunshots to put the spark back into a relationship. I know it works for me.

Brown suit, brown socks, and brown shoes on Adam; purple dress and shoes on Terry. The Matchy-Matchy Duo.

The Marina Royale and the boardwalk must not be a popular venue. Other than our aging lovebirds and the mugger, there's been no one in sight the entire time. The parking lot at Food Team would have been more lucrative for this incompetent crook.

We all know where this is heading:
Adam: "Just like old times!"
Terry: "Yes!"
Adam and Terry: "Let's get married right now!" [And we'll never see them again.]

I'm stunned that Terry didn't need more of Mary's cliches to help her make up her mind. Mary's been peripheral to this whole plot other than her random "observations." How will she take credit for this?

And so ended the sad demise and downfall of Mr. Clean

Adam is using that old Secret Service technique of improvised handcuffing using a Member's Only jacket.

Don't worry Mr. injured mugger. Our good friend Dr. Kapuht will nurse your wounds when you get to jail.

Is Terry Bryson looking around for Natty Mugger's accomplice, or is she just trying to appear nonchalant as she points the gun in a random direction and looks the other way?

@Peggy Olson: Terry took the gun from the mugger after it fell out of his hand in yesterday's strip.

Why tie Mr. Clean up with his member's only jacket?
He's already paralyzed by a broken neck, thanks to slugger Adam.
I smell a lawsuit coming and Adam loosing his fraudulent disability
payments.

Oh man, this panel hurts my eyes.
Adam with his K-mart suit and plastic shoes,
and Terry looking pie faced, with her legs
totally out of proportion. Least of all,
Mr. Mugger appears to have taken his last breath,
but still being abused by Adam....

@ Peggy Olsen: It's 'MURICA where everyone carries a gun at all times because... I have no idea.

Well, you could make a point that everyone carries a gun at all times to defend against mugger actions just like this one. On the other hand, Adam would be secure with his constitutional right to bear cane.

He whacked that mugger over the head with his cane, and the cane is still straight and useable? Any cane I have ever seen made out of ANYTHING (they're made to be strong but light) would have been broken in half.

"PIECE OF WORK!"

If we outlaw canes, only outlaws will have canes…..

KitKat said...

Adam's cane appears to be only an accessory - his injury hasn't impeded him in any way, from carnival games to capturing muggers. I bet he never "took a bullet for Congressman McDougal." That was just a tale he concocted.

Let's hope the fashion police show up with the regular police. Adam should be arrested for his "totally brown" ensemble - yuck.

Saturday
Happy Independence Day, everyone!

Terry brandishes the mugger's gun and exclaims "Yes, Adam...NOW!" This tell us a lot about Terry, and it isn't family friendly. Hoo boy....
