Ned is going to be really disappointed to discover that Dawn is taking a break from dating.

Dawn does not appear to have changed her clothes or washed her hair in days. Either Dr. Ned is desperate to seduce her, or he's getting a pre-arranged rescue text in panel two.

Wanders, that has to be one of your best secrect messages ever; no one is going to come close to that one.

Delilah said...

Two questions: (1) Is Dawn wearing Wilbur’s jacket? (2) Why does Dr. Ned have a sign pinned to his sleeve that says RING RING? Foreshadowing a proposal?

Okay, I don't get the Bunker Hill reference. Little help?

P.S. Dr. Ned is so smitten, his dreamy blue irises have leaked all over his sclera.

I wonder who is calling. Jared? Dr. Ned's wife?

Nance said...

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Meanwhile At Munster Mansion...".

Beautiful! Pick 'em!
Only beautiful...Excuse me. Take.
Of course. Be!


@Delilah--He has to use a sign because, as you can see in Panel Two, his phone is just a slab of dark grey plastic.

Apparently Dawn likes the restaurant so much that she's eaten enough to begin her morph into a latter day Orson Wells. Dr. Ned, seeing this self dials an emergency to escape.

With its 1970's era decor clearly way more modern and less nautical than that of the Bum Boat, I'm extremely curious as to the name of the restaurant. With its flowing drapery and hanging stained glass lights it could be the coffee area at Ripepi Funeral Home. Perhaps Dr. Ned took her along on a house call to visit a former patient.

Wow, Dawn sure has been shovelling in the free dinners! And I'l d like to bet that Jared is on the other end of the RING RING, calling Dr. Ned to a fake emergency.

Hilarious comments today, everyone! And I, too, am puzzled by Wanders' message...

@Scottie McW - At the Battle of Bunker Hill (American Revolutionary War) Colonel William Prescott gave this order to his troops: "Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes.

-hmm

Nance said...

Sigh.

...wondering if I should have included the fake cell phone's lines in my Boldface Haiku today.

I just came across one more reference in this week's People magazine that referred to a young woman "Adulting". The expression is exploding. Looks like KM is on the cutting edge of media jargon once again.

Perhaps Dr Ned is Fremen and has ingested too much melange.

Delilah said...

Spot-on Anonymous! Fremen! Melange! Haven’t thought about Dune in years. Very cool.

Chin Napkin Groupie said...

Wow....Freman....melange....Bunker Hill....cryptic, very cryptic. Actually, I got the Bunker Hill reference.

KitKat said...

What is Dr. Ned drinking in p. 1? It looks like a small mug with multiple handles.

@Dave in Parma, you are right on with the funeral home comparison. Unnamed restaurant looks oppressive and claustrophobic. Yes, Ned sure knows how to pick em!

Anonymous said...

@KitKat - he's drinking a Moscow Mule, and the copper has gone to his eyes!

@ hmm

Okay, thanks! That is indeed funny!

Dave in Parma...Ripepi Funeral Home...been there...love the d├ęcor. But the floral odor is a but much for me.

"I've heard cruises are also beautiful! Did you know that?"

Ned's corneas match the drapes! How enchanting.
