"Reminds me of Dave."
Today's full strip
It's heartening to see that the modest curators of Santa Royale Museum decided to enrobe that filthy statue David, on loan from Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze.Dawn is still too fragile to relive that viewing experience.
Touche! Great harkening back to that winceable line she gave at the museum in Florence.
Dang Wanders! You beat me to it!
Stone cold, Wanders.
I've been wondering why Dawn hasn't told Harlan about Wilbur dragging her to various cultural landmarks in Italy, and their harrowing experience on the Unita del Mare. As @smooth remarked, perhaps Dawn is still too fragile, but I think it's because she's so dense she forgot all about that stuff.Note that Harlan and Dawn are wearing their best monochromatic blah ensembles to coordinate with the gray statuary.
Many minds with but a single thought! Nailed it, Wanders!
...also, today Harlan will be played by Mr. Banks from Mary Poppins.
Does Dawn have a part time job at the Clinique counter at Maisy's? Follow up question: Does Maisy's have a Clinique counter or something like a Estelle Loder counter?
MW Psychoanalysis Moment: Almost exclusively, Giella and Moy show their statuary, background characters, books and sometimes even food as gray. According to a number of online "meaning of color" and dream analysis sites, in reference to the color gray: "It can mean indecision, uncertainty, or confusion. It may mean isolation or detachment. It may also mean lifeless or dull." In reference to the latest plot line, I couldn't have nailed it more accurately myself! As the guys on the sports networks say, "C'mon, Man...! Let's move this plot, "The Professor and Mary Ann, oops, Dawn" along...out the door.
I had hoped they would see paintings at the painting exhibit- perhaps some by Buonarroti, or van Rijn, or Bardi, or Urbino, or some of the other Ninja Turtles. Just sign me "Disappointed Painting Lover."
@fauxprof, be sure to read today's secret message.
Why is Dawn yelling about not going to the museum in a while? Is she trying to impress somebody, or is she full of shame?
"it's never to late to learn something new"...I see we don't need Mary Worth to appear any more. Virtually every character becomes afflicted with Platituditis eventually. Harlan, new as he is, has definitely come down with a major case of it. I hear the only cure is for Mary Worth to come on the scene and suck back what has been declared by her fellow characters in preparation for her own major bromide eruption.... It's sort of like the Death Eaters in Harry Potter.
Are you sure you want to shout out that admission so that everybody in the museum can hear it, Dawn? Meanwhile, Bob Goulet looks like he's about to burst into "If ever I would leave you, it wouldn't be in museum..." (2nd verse substitute "yoga" for "autumn" and so on)
Wow! This strip is roaring ahead at a breakneck pace! Yesterday, Dr. Harlan Jones said that "tomorrow" he would be visiting the art museum, and here we are, one day later in real time AND in strip time! Is this a first in the Worthiverse?On another note, I love how Dawn wore a lab coat to the museum, all the better to observe the artwork with detached objectivity!
@tkraft: Shall we psychoanalyze Dawn's gaze in panel 2?
In examining her gaze, Dawn's drives might be influenced by the following "vicissitudes": reversal into its opposite; turning around upon the subject; repression; sublimation; and anxiety. The operation of the first two vicissitudes depends on the narcissistic organization of the ego. All these vicissitudes amount to the drive subjugated to the three great polarities that regulate psychic life: activity/passivity, ego/external world, pleasure/pain. In layman's terms: This Dawn/Harlan episode is seriously messed up.
The Museum's custodial staff has been hard at work polishing those floors!
I wasn't actually thinking it, but thanks for the reminder...and the link!
