There's a word that only college students would use, "Fawning." As in, "Oh, Professor Jones, your mustache is so thick and lustrous. It reminds me of Leonardo Da Vinci. Would you like another bite of my sandwich?"
Today's full strip
Is that a different Blonde Girl, or did she change her top? Is Person of Color male or female? Does it matter? Guess not. Either way, innocent, clueless Dawn is about to become more of a pariah than she was before.
It doesn't take much to get an angry mob going at UC-Santa Royale. They probably have to call out the National Guard when the Cafeteria runs out of tater tots.
Today, the role of Blonde Girl is played by Melania Trump.
Who is that sitting directly behind HarJo? I'd know that white head anywhere!
@meg, your observation skills are sharp! I've been wondering when Mary will insinuate herself into this plot.Dawn is fawning all over Harlan while the rest of us are gagging all over.
I'm glad tiger-print-girl has switched back to Basic Female Purple. Harlan's suit, on the other hand, is burning a hole in my eyeballs!
Meanwhile, Tommy, fired from his job at Sammich Shop and now cranked up on crystal meth and working at Cafeteria, has prematurely bussed their table up a treat, leaving Fawning Dawn no plate upon which to rest her weary sammich. p.s. The correct answer to all the quiz questions will be "da Vinci."
Looks like Dawn's greatness is not attracting much tribute. If Dawn fails the quiz will Harlan dump her for the blonde?
Sheesh! I always knew that Sis was a dim bulb, but "sleazy"--or, to quote accurately, "SLEAZY"--nah, I don't really think so. Dawn, you should've just hung out with Hiking Club Jim. It would've been so much less inflammatory!Students, bring on the torches and pitchforks!
I'll bet this plot is lifted panel by panel from the story of "How Toby Met Ian" in days of yore. If we all live long enough, we'll see Dawn and HarJo separate after an angry argument about gray clay and Harlan's lack of tenure. (And, as always, Mary will be there to provide Dawn with a couch and a word of advice.)
This came as a shock to me: June Brigman Will Draw “Mary Worth” Sundays!I'm very disoriented now and need to go lie down.
SUNDAYWhat the HECK!! Wanders, where are you? I opened up the Sunday Plain Dealer comics and the universe is out of balance!
SUNDAY: Basil St. John's evil twin takes on the role of Harlan Jones. All he needs is the eye patch.
EARTHQUAKE IN SANTA ROYALE!Holy realism, Batman! June Brigman should draw "Mary Worth" every day! Dawn and Harlan actually look like people who might be attractive to one another! A sandwich really looks like a sandwich! You can actually tell what food Harlan is eating--a burger with fries and even a little paper ketchup holder!!! There are ice cubes in the soft drink and condensation on the glass! Pass me the smelling salts!On to today's strip:--It is days later (or at least 20 minutes in strip time), and Dawn has yet to take even one bite of her sandwich. Is she really Wilbur's daughter?!?--What college professor takes ONE student out for lunch and then asks this ONE student how well prepared she is for the upcoming quiz? FAVORITISM!--You know that an affair will be hinted at over and over and over for weeks, but nothing will ever happen, since, well, nothing much ever does happen, does it? (Or am I being too snarky?)--Harlan is no longer wearing his green sports jacket, and Dawn is no longer wearing her white lab coat. Does this symbolize that scientific objectivity is being jettisoned from the relationship?--Diner actually looks like a place I would go to eat lunch at.--Vocabulary alert! One of the uptight, gossipy students says, "Hmmph!" I LOVE IT!
HOLY COW, what a bombshell at 6:15 a.m.! Was Batman's framed photo this past week a sign from Joe? Will we recognize Mary on Sundays? Has the cafeteria been taken over by George Jetson?
