You can, Olive! Mary has lots of money. Ask her for more to give to that homeless man, whatever his name is.
Today's full strip
A three figure donation? What an odd construction. Wouldn't most of us say "a few hundred dollars"? Between Olive's grim, downscale visions and Mary's odd way with the English language, no one in New York is safe.
A three figure donation? Is that $1.00, or will Mary be really generous and give $9.99?Yes, Olive, Bum Bunsington feels considerably better since a weird purple-garbed kid and a smirking woman tossed a platitude his way.
Is that the New York School Book Depository behind them?
So much for Not Talking To Strangers.
Olive should take advantage of the "five-finger discount" and grab a few bucks out of the beggar's cup while Mary distracts him with dull platitudes. That would be a real life lesson for everyone.
I hope the next person they happen upon in the deserted streets of New York City is Shovey Shovington. That will give Olive a whole new perspective on giving money to bums.
So the solution to homelessness is faith! That's so simple! Mary should be testifying before the Senate, not wandering the streets with Olive.
Mary's favorite frame of mind for her "victims" ... er, "friends" is "receptive, enthusiastic, grateful" ... That's when they're most vulnerable and can best be meddled into submission!
This would be a little but easier to take if Moy at least had the courage to say what the bum...er, down-on-his-luck-person... has faith in. Does he have faith in God? In the kindness of purple-clad strangers? In flower fairies? Santa Claus? Just saying he hasn't lost his faith is utterly meaningless.
