Mary Worth 2200

Olive, people are going to hate you because of your special powers. The time is now. Seek vengeance while you can. Levitate yourself and lead these inanimate objects to reign horror on the torpid bourgeoisie of Manhattan!

Today's full strip

I have a theory about this story line. I think this is Karen Moy's Christmas gift to Joe Giella. The poor guy had to draw endless kitchen cabinets, park benches, hideous blazers and pedestrian mounted fish all year. For this story, he gets to draw wondrous and amazing things.

There's nothing more amazing than the sheer wonder of amazing things. You can quote me on that!

I had to do detective work on the free secret message, but it was well Worth it!

An intriguing secret message, Wanders, and another reference to Angela Lansbury. At some point, we may even see Mary channeling Mama Rose.

@Toots McGee, great suggestion regarding the story line. Drawing prehistoric fish levitating with no visible means of support has to be way more fun than drawing a dopey framed fish at the Bum Boat. I've never visited the American Museum of Natural History, so perhaps one of you can confirm that yellow is the predominant color in the displays.

Looks to me like the legs and feet at left in the second panel can't get away from Mary and Olive fast enough.

@Toots McGee: Or you could just listen to the first song on the Charterstone Jukebox.

Remember, we still have those thrilling botanical garden exhibits to get to. I wonder what the Manhattan flower fairies are like. Olive also mentioned Broadway, and we can only hope that Ed and Evy are paying the freight. Mary will find the ticket prices a bit steeper than her Senior Season pass at the Santa Royale Community Playhouse.

Thanks for the "Bedknobs and Broomsticks"-related earworm, Wanders. I haven't had one of those in quite a while. :-)

I love Bedknobs and Broomsticks! Especially the ghost army.

Olive gets more badly-drawn every day. And more annoying.

Is that a Riverdance going on on the left of the second panel?
