Maybe Tommy can teach Iris's new boyfriend to shave.
Wilbur's plane is barely in the air, and already Iris is flirting. I think their relationship is done for despite his ruminating over Iris' floating head all the way to Hong Kong.
An age-appropriate, hunky guy shows up, and does he meet Dawn? No, of course not. He encounters age-inappropriate Iris. So, Iris in a cougar storyline. That should be just the kind of stressor to derail Tommy's recovery process. We will never be rid of the Tweedlebeedies, friends. (Just as an exercise in imagination: can anyone visualize that hat being worn and looking anything but stupid?)
I'm with @fauxprof on that hat - dumbest ever, and likely wouldn't even fit over Iris's swoopy 'do. Just picture her trying to cram it onto her head and it popping off - boing! Plus we have never seen Iris even carry a hat, much less wear one.People in the Worthiverse meet so easily. Hanna Dingdon met Sean Hastings right after she almost crashed into Professor Chinbeard, and now Iris has found a boy toy. Charmed, I'm sure!
Young Indiana Jones usually finds more valuable items.
Oh, oh, oh! I call dibs on hot, hairy dude for DAWN! ... Hey, if Dawn ever runs for political office, wouldn't that be a great name for a group of supporters? "Hot, Hairy Dudes for Dawn" ... HHDD!
Maybe Robin Hood will walk Iris to their Archery class.
For the first time in a Mary Worth strip I see a look of "romantic" yearning. Iris and Wilbur clearly never so much as kissed. Iris is about to pounce. That boy better button up his shirt and run.
Wow - green eyes? Nice; very nice. Thanks Roy!
@Anonymous at 4:16 PM: Green eyes in one panel, NO eyes in the next!
What the heck are those other two staring at? The hat seems to be inspiring awe in them.
Um, that's not chivalry, Iris, that's just common courtesy. Ten bucks says that guy's going to be going on and on about what an old-fashioned romantic he is over the next few weeks. It's going to get really trite, my friends.
I love the super hip college kids (sideways cap, yo!) watching so sweetly as this train wreck unfolds. No. Just no. Hand over the hat and move on, Young Brad Pitt. You do not want to get involved with the Tommy mommy.
Iris should bring her new young friend to Thanksgiving dinner. He could meet Tommy and see what he is getting himself into. Tommy - "Hi, I'm Tommy and I'm a recovering addict. I like to read passages from this book Mommy gave me. Did I mention I was in prison. Are you going to be my Dad?"Cuesta College is just north. Drive young man, drive!My guess on Iris hat is that it is a fishing hat. It's for her fish art history / fishing class taught by Professor Jones. I bet he has a picture of the Incredible Mister Limpet on the board. It must be the first day because she hasn't been taught how to put the hooks and lures in it yet.Who is the slacker to criticize Iris dress. Hey punk, you look like Poochie in that Simpsons episode. Remember what happened to Poochie.Seriously, did you lose a bet? No college kid anywhere dresses like that. And guys that can't grow a full moustache shouldn't even try. You are an embarrassment to Movember. Final observation. Did the Girl change from Asian to Caucasian?
What is Iris doing with Gilligan's hat?
I think June is doing what Joe did--drawing to amuse the commentators to this blog.
Isn't it astonishing that Iris's break up with Wilbur has made her irresistible to college boys? She must be radiating...something.Note that June has adopted Joe's hand-on-hip gesture for oddly garbed people in the background.
Oh no! Hoodlams and hooligans! Sideways baseball caps and purple hair....
Thanksgiving Day - memo to June: You're fired. We ALWAYS have a turkey dinner scene on Thanksgiving, June. Re-read your contract; this was not an option.
"What do you mean by DOPE, young man? Let me tell you about my personal tragedy, at excruciating length, because that's how we do things around here. Then you'll learn not to throw around words like dope as hipster jargon. Now come along with me and I'll introduce you to My son Tommy, who's about seven years older than you..."Sigh....have a good Thanksgivin, friends.
Iris, like the flower. Not like part of my eye, which seems to have disappeared again.Does anybody do small talk better than Moy?I am thankful for Wanders for giving us this forum and for all my brilliant and witty cyberpals who post here. Blessings be upon y'all.
