Mary Worth 2805

Don't dismiss it too quickly. Muffin World is a magical place, where everyone is happy all the time, flower fairies roam freely, and everybody's head is shaped like a muffin. You'd be very happy there, Mary.

A "star in the Muffin World” Does such a thing really exist? Oh, wait, it’s the Worthiverse...

Mary says she's not looking for fortune, but she could use pillow cases that fit her pillows, so some extra cash might come in handy. Don't dismiss Muffin World stardom too quickly, Mary! Maybe Ted can get you on Shark Tank.

On the subject of Ted, we never did see why he's a "character," unless pitching get-rich-schemes on credulous people is his "character" mojo. This makes me wonder how much Jeff has lost on Ted's "ideas."

Mary will find herself on reality TV all right, but not Shark Tank. She'll be one of those pathetic elderly victims from American Greed, lamenting the loss of her life savings to a plausible conman.

"You may not need the extra money, but think of all the people who'd enjoy your muffins."

That's all you got, Jeff? Muffin altruism? You're clearly no salesman. That doesn't sound like a very good reason to turn your life upside down and launch a start-up.

However, Moy wouldn't be doing this if it isn't going to lead somewhere that involves Mary signing on to this, so now we patiently wait until the plot slowly crawls along to Mary's first sale and the subsequent inevitable collapse of Mary Muffins, the Official Muffin of Meddling Matrons, Inc.

@KitKat, the pillowcases were the first thing I noticed. Perhaps they shrunk in the laundry. Or the weight of that concrete book is pushing the stuffing right out of the side!

Hey man, I'm not going to read about muffins for the next three months! It's off to Judge Parker I go!!

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"Mahatma Mary: Bake The Change You Wish To See In The World".

Keen star!
Dismiss quickly!
Won't, or!
Need, enjoy!

I have to admit, I didn't make out Mary's phone at first thought Dr. Jeff was talking to her from the bathroom. As in Mary and Dr. Jeff were getting ready for bed together. Alas, it was not so.

Uh, Jeff...I think Mary was being sarcastic with that "star of the muffin world" crack. If so, sarcasm would be surprising for her, although the sight of her waiting book propped against those invivting pillows says, "Leave me in peace, Muffin Predator and your minion, so I can get back to Danielle Steele's latest.."

+1 for Scottie McW's comment. Muffin altruism! Couldn't have said it better myself.

LouiseF said...

Love everyone's comments today! And special thanks to Karen Moy and June Brigman for giving us all such great material to work with!

Do you know the muffin man
The muffin man, the muffin man
Do you know the muffin man
Who lives on down the lane?

Hello, I'm the muffin man
The muffin man, the muffin man
Hello, I'm the muffin man
Who lives on down the lane.

Do you want to have a taste
Have a taste, have a taste
Do you want to have a taste
From the muffin man.

They're the best in all the land
All the land, all the land
They're the best in all the land
From the muffin man.

Thank you mister muffin man
Muffin man, muffin man
Thank you mister muffin man
Who lives on down the lane
Who lives on down the lane
Who lives on down the lane

Just FYI - National Muffin Day is Feb. 20. National Blueberry Muffin Day is July 11.

@Tim - a muffin shortage! Thanks for that; I've been giggling all afternoon.

DWET said...

Whoa! Panel 2! Dr. Jeff found my cell phone! I lost it in 1998!

I'm sure this plotline began in anticipation of those two holidays, and we can expect Mary Muffins' first foray into blueberries in July.

Sandi Ego said...

Oh my goodness, my birthday is on Muffin Day! I will forego cupcakes and request kelk chip muffins for my special day. Or splak & zucchini, haven't decided which is my favorite.

They want me to believe MARY WORTH doesn't use a bookmark?

It would improve her NET WORTH too!
