Those who know me, know that I would never encourage reckless drinking... But if I did want to invent a drinking game, it would be one shot for each time the word "good" appears in this strip. By the end of the month, you'd be so wasted.
Here we go. It's Ned Dreamy and his legendary bedroom manner.-- Scottie McW.
Now hold on -- Ginger Doc is kind of cute!
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Another Inappropriate Relationship* Awaits Dawn".Impressed diagnosis.Before. Rare...good! Should.Brilliant!*Ned's character is based upon "Shark Tank"'s Robert Herjavec. Or Rick Springfield. Or some other much older, yet handsome, man.
Meet number I've Lost Count in the Dawn Weston parade of disastrous relationships. She's gone the medical route before, having had a crush on Dr. Jeff's son Dr. Drew the Twit. Why doesn't KM just have her hook up with Tommy and be done with it? Then Mary would have a mess of apocalyptic proportions to deal with. A super-meddle, if you will.
It's a rare condition, but Dr. Ned has seen it before? Was this on Grey's Anatomy? Meanwhile, Dawn is ready to leap over the counter and join in the gushing. Does anyone else think that apart from somewhat shorter hair, Dr. Ned bears a strong resemblance to Iris Beedie's college boy toy, Zak?
June B seems to think desirable young men have hair parted in the middle. The brilliant doc with the impressive diagnosis looks just like Iris' recent fling, Zak, except that he is clean shaven. I have to say this is a hairstyle that I haven't seen on a man since about 1978...Jackson Browne, anyone?
OK, here it comes, another journey into the Moylight Zone. Being an experienced adulter, I doubt that Dr. Ned would be attracted to a teenaged novice. I don't see this turning out well for Dawn. Unless, of course, she comes down with a mystery disease that requires his diagnostic skills.
I agree with KitKat and LouiseF - maybe Dr. Ned is Zak's twin brother. It appears that the only variety we will get in June's handsome young men will be their eyes because Roy can't remember, from day to day, what color he started them out with.Anyway, my prediction for this next Dawn almost-romance is a tragic love triangle. I'm guessing she fall for Dr. Ned while Dr. BittyBeard will fall for her. Of course, she won't realize her mistake until it's too late.
Can't Dawn discover some nefarious plot to illegally harvest organs or even good old fashioned medicare fraud? Why must it always be an excuse for romance? If we're going down this well-trodden path, however, I vote for Ginger Doc. He has a dash of Bolshevik charm. Of course, Dawn will pick Dr. Ned Brilliant, who is at least more age appropriate.
Is "Ned" really Neddy from Judge Parker in a crossover role? I can't wait for Dawn to get locked in the bathroom by Dr. Beard.
...and it nice to see that Mrs Jones 4th grade art class is decorating the Medical Center.
Josh Fruhlinger (The Comics Curmudgeon) thinks that he might be the 'model' for the ginger-beard doctor. It would be best then if Dawn decided to moon after young Ned then, because beardy-bespeckled is actually married.
June turned up at ComicsKingdom Sunday to tease "Jared"If Dr. Ginger is Jared, then he's Josh.
@Chin Napkin Groupie at 11:35 AM: I thought you said you were an experienced "adulterer." That would be quite a confession for a chin napkin.
In fairness, Dr.Ned does have better hair than Aldo Kelrast
@Wanders--Thank you. The English teacher/writer/editor in me was dying re: that wonderfully misplaced modifier. But, on the off chance @Chin Napkin Groupie was making a Full Disclosure, I restrained my Red Pen. ;-)
@officemanager, ease up on the red lipstick!
Chin Napkin has expressed his disappointment in me for my poor grammar and has requested that I assure everyone that he remains as innocent as his pure white attire would suggest. He thanks Wanders and Nance for their attention to detail as he himself holds a postgraduate degree in English. By the way, should there be commas before and after "himself"?
@ CNGNo. In this context, "himself" is superfluous, if not redundant. Throw them overboard or lock them in a bathroom. You do not need them.-- S. McW.
Wednesday: Dawn's unnamed supervisor/coworker/not sure what will be played today by Isabel Sanford (a/k/a "Weezy" Jefferson.)
Dawn thinks: Dr. Ned is GOOD- looking. I would ENJOY being in LOVE with him. It would be NICE. (What? Too soon?)
I don't see the Josh Fruhlinger connection at all, but he does look to me like one of the incarnations of Breaking Bad's Walter White.I'm still chuckling over "The Moylight Zone." Brilliant (and good and nice, too)
Who is Avery, and why did he/she have a meltdown? Son, daughter, husband, dog, cat...?
"Why doesn't KM just have her hook up with Tommy and be done with it?"What's the main difference between Dawn Weston and Tommy Beedie? Dawn's pushing a pencil and Tommy's pushing a mop. Dawn does a good job while Tommy is squeamish about cleaning up projectile diarrhea off the wall. Are there other Judge Parker readers on this blog? The American flag is drawn wrong in today's episode. The stripes seem to be the wrong color.
