Wow, maybe we will get that loud, embarrassing public argument between Iris and Wilbur! Well, it's more than worth it if that heralds Iris' permanent departure. And for once, Roy's bolding makes perfect sense in the last speech balloon.
It seems the calm waters of La Rosa's pond are somehow isolated from that raucous fountain.
The menu is the size of a greeting card. Those blue lenses of Wilbur's specs are getting a workout.I hope the irate Iris grabs a tray from a passing server, dumps the dishes onto the floor, and thumps Wilbur on his head while screeching "Take that, you &##@$!!" Then she can turn on her heel and exit both La Rosa and this strip forever.
I just hope that the big fight doesn't happen before we see Wilbur being served a huge platter of sandwiches. Please, June?
It's an Italian restaurant, right? So he would be served a platter of paninis or bruschetta. I'd like to see the waiter's face when Wilbur asks for extra mustard.
@Meg - or mayonnaise - nothing improves bruschetta like a couple of big dollops of mayonnaise!
@anonymous. I've never understood mayonnaise. But I grew up in Ohio in the 1950s and thought Miracle Whip and mayonnaise were the same thing. The first time I tasted actual mayo, I thought the Miracle Whip had gone bad.
Maybe Wilbur can help Tommy get a job there - it all worked at so well at Jerry's.+
Maybe Wilbur is going to ask Iris to accompany him on his trip...as his bride...OK, probably not.
Dear fauxprof,I love your comments always, but honestly, how can you not understand olive oil and eggs?What the heck is in Miracle Whip anyway?
@Miss Scarlet: flavor! (LOL)
@fauxprof and Miss Scarlet, I grew up in Ohio in that same time (fauxprof and I are sisters under the skin, I think), and Miracle Whip, never mayonnaise, was always in our fridge. My mother used it in tuna salad and spread it on the sandwiches she packed for my Dad's lunch. Mayonnaise did not cross my lips until I had my own home in my mid-20s, and I became a convert. One day I decided to make tuna salad with Miracle Whip for old time's sake - YUCK!!! Tasted like someone had mixed in a quarter cup of sugar. I wouldn't be surprised if Mary used Miracle Whip in that casserole she palmed off on Wilbur.
@fauxprof; @KitKat--My compatriots! This Ohioan (NEO born and bred and still here) is a Miracle Whip devotee for sandwiches but makes tuna salad with Hellman's Mayonnaise. I think there is a comparable West Coast sandwich spread, but I can't recall its name.As far as Wilbur and Iris, ho hum. Our mayonnaise discussion is already far more interesting than this storyline.
What if Iris accompanies Wilbur? Whoever can be entrusted to look after Tommy and keep him on the srptraight and narrow? I can' t think of a single possibility.
Judging from the new decor La Rosa is now a part of the Trump Organization.
Hellmans Mayonaise is known as Best Foods on the left coast. Wilber should do a story on that.
Wow, what a SAD RELATIONSHIP Wilbur and Iris have! The normal thing for a couple to do after a LONG ABSENCE would be to go out to dinner and then ... well ... Instead, Ole Wilbie has to have BIG NEWS in order to get Iris to meet him for dinner. ... I am EXCITED about the prospect of lots of trouble and a big fight, though!And, @meg, of course you know how I would solve the problem of Tommy being on his own ... DAWN!!! Tommy, darling, DAWN will CURE all your problems, and even become ... YOUR NEW ADDICTION! ... You're welcome!
Wait! Shouldn't TOMMY be Wilbur's next survivor story? He's survived drug addiction, prison, and a MOMMY who LOVES him TOO much!
Oh, DWET! Somehow I knew that you would think that. I, of course was hinting at MWOB. (MaryWorthOldBag)
