Mary Worth communicates with Olive telepathically to avoid alarming the other ice skaters.
Today's full strip
Olive can conquer the/her World because she has now seen More Of It.How soon does this Travelogue wrap up? And can we submit a city for Mary to tour next? Where would all of you like to see her go?(Just keep it clean This is a FAMILY FRIENDLY blog.) Hee hee.
Mary's scarf is just crying out for a big YANK!!! Maybe Pierre Le Lumberjack in p. 2 will do it and end our misery. Of course, Olive will need to be taken down too.
Mary should visit New Orleans at Mardi Gras time. That way she can evince both sad disapproval and total misunderstanding of some of the best food, music, and culture in the country. On the other hand, nope, I don't want her anywhere near one of my favorite places. After Katrina, they don't need a Worthian visitation.
Well, it's too late for her to meddle in the Iowa caucuses, but there's still the New Hampshire primary. She'd also be a welcome visitor to any of the cities that have recently suffered weather-related disasters. Can't you just see her providing unsolicited counseling to some poor soul who's just lost all earthly possessions to a tornado?
The other people on the rink don't look like they are casually skating, they look like they are trying to get away from a avalanche or iceberg coming their way!
Sticking with my string of 20th-century references this week ("The Man Who Came to Dinner," Isadora Duncan), I'll modify one of Ralph Kramden's catch phrases to suggest Mary's next destination: "To the moon, Mary!"
"One of these days, Alice. Pow, right in the kisser."
This is maybe the most blatant and creepy of MW's insinuations of what's in store for little Olive and her powers. At last, the prophecy has been foretold. Prepare for the hour of reckoning.
It's really hard to ice skate in a long coat like Mary's. Of course, what am I saying? This is Mary Worth: she can do anything!
I'd love to see Mary visit Pyongyang. She'll clean up North Korea for good!
The lumberjack skater just behind Mary has it good...if anything happens and he should slip, he has that puffy 'And You Will' cloud to grab and fall down on. On the other hand, he may be grabbing onto Mary's scarf to start a game of 'Crack the Whip'.
Another city to visit..Hmmm..how about Baghdad???Their pants match their coats. Good Lord, how lazy can Uncle Joe be? Has anyone ever had pants that perfectly match a winter coat? Why??? Alright, maybe a snowsuit etc.Funny to read the Isadora Duncan reference, now if we can get someone to drive onto the ice in a Bugatti........................................................................
@carlnepa at 10:02 a.m., a Bugatti Zamboni would be just the ticket.The monotones may not be the result of laziness on the part of Mr. G. The colorists may have a very limited supply of colors at their disposal. (I'm picturing the kindergarten-size Crayola box with 8 fat crayons.)Mary's really defying gravity in p. 2 of Friday's strip. And, I'm REALLY SICK of Mary and Olive, the Insufferable Duo.
OMG ... HILARIOUS!!! Wanders, the panel at the top of this blog entry should be panel of the year!!! Finally, we know what Mary really thinks about every day: world conquest, absolute dominion over the entire world!Also, I LOVE the references in the comments to The Man Who Came to Dinner, one of my favorite movies! And I shuddered at the references to Isadora Duncan. All of that took place long, LONG before I was born, but some of us are interested in cultural history!Will smug Mary get her comeuppance in the next strips? ... I doubt it! Stay tuned ...
