Such wonders await! Hadas de la flor!

Well, nothing happened with the talking horses, or the pineapples, but while we were distracted by the romance of Jamaica, I missed an exciting new development. Last year, North America Syndicate relinquished power to King Features Syndicate, resulting in protest from Susan Sarandon during the Worthy Awards. But ever since Derek kicked down the bathroom door, it appears that North America Syndicate has also done some butt kicking and taken control of the Worthiverse once again, kicking King Features Syndicate off its gilded throne. It's like we're making North America Syndicate, Inc., great again! Or at least good.

This morning, I was imagining that it was the horses talking, rather than Derek and Katie. Ha ha ha, I thought. That's funny.
But then I read yesterday's comments and Dear Reader Alice introduced me to Latawnya the Naughty Horse who likes drug smoking. Ha ha ha ha, I thought. That's really funny.
And then Dear Reader Cherie sent me an email and made yesterday's smoking horse dreams come true. Ha ha ha ha ha:
Well, we're back to our old plot extolling the various activities available on a cruise. But at least we get horses. Let's give those horses some cigarettes. I'm not sure why that strikes me as so funny. I just want to see the horses smoking.
But here's hoping Entertainer Esme locks Katie in the stable.
And panel 1 brings back our old favorite: "Enjoy"

Well, Entertainer Esme has been outsmarted by the meddling of Mary Worth, and it probably won't be the last time, either. But maybe if she can get Katie to lean on that rickety wooden rail, she'll get to smoke Pall Mall's with Derek before the day is through.
So... Toby is fleeing from Mary, but has forgotten who she's searching for? At least that's what Lord Montaigne thinks. He also said, "I quote others only in order the better to express myself," but I'm not sure it applies to today's strip.
The "sovenir" stand is right next to the bathroom?? Was Derek buying tacky caps for his assistants just four feet from Entertainer Esme as she locked up his wife? Or maybe that's some other restroom, and that's some other wife that Entertainer Esme has also locked up.
I am not certain how Nobel Laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel would feel about being quoted out of context in Mary Worth, but at least he can rest easy knowing that he received no attribution. Except that I just exposed him. Dang. Sorry, Sir Elie.
Woah, hey! What happened? How did these two end up alone together in the designated smoking area? This is bad, real bad. Derek is already lying to Katie and confiding in Esme the Entertainer. Smoking and flirting. Now if he'll just murder someone, I'm pretty sure Katie will divorce him.
What does Entertainer Esme mean by "I can have him?" Does she want to add him to her collection of top-hatted chorus boys? Does she need a "Mr. Allora" in her life to keep her from hurting her back? Or is her tummy brain suggesting something more untoward.
