Let's see how University Director Hilton Berkes feels about your truth, Dawn. After Harlan is fired, do you think your friend could get a job at the paper writing "Ask Da Vinci?"
Today's full strip
Mary's smile evokes The Joker. I wonder if that was the effect Joe was going for? We may have to fear weekday Mary.
"Let them misunderstand you" -?? Let Mary explain THIS meshuggeneh concept."I learn a lot from him. He's a GOOD GUY. Now eat this rose, Mary."
The everso perceptive @fauxprof broke into my head and stole my comment. Mary = Joker.This NonStory is limping badly to its finish line, which could have/should have been weeks ago. Using a professional basketball player's quote on Sunday shows just how far it's reaching.LET IT DIE.
I have misunderstood Dawn from the beginning.
Let's see what lessons we can take away from the last couple of strips:1. "If you're being bullied, ignore the taunts (and perhaps slaps) and the problem will go away." Mary: When you stop caring about what others think, they tend to bother you less.2. "If you are being bullied, it's happening because you are reacting the way you do." Dawn: Maybe their bullying was just to get a reaction out of me." E.G. Your reaction just fuels the bully because he/she is only bullying to get your reaction. After years working in the schools, I can tell you that these are poisonous assumptions that point directly away from how kids could even begin to successfully deal with bullying. If M&G are trying to be funny or light on this subject, I'm missing it. Blaming the victim is just wrong. (OK, done with my rant. Back to being light and funny. I usually try to think of something amusing, but these lines of thinking really pressed my buttons.
Are Dawn and Mary about to kiss?
KitKat - thank you for my word of the day - meshuggeneh. Who says Mary Worth isn't informative?
