Mary Worth 2812

She's going to need a bigger oven.

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"Mary's Muffins: Metaphors For Life".

Lie! Effort!
Work. May hit or miss!
Nothing guaranteed! Live it?

KitKat said...

The dialogue today is taken directly from one of Mary’s “Ask Wendy” answers.

For Pete’s sake, Mary, Ted might as well have “I am a con man” tattooed on his forehead. Now think back to when you smugly lectured Toby on identity theft and you might begin to get a glimmer.

Mary might lose her entire life savings in this venture, but that's a risk Ted is willing to take.

Mary's curtains are dangerously close to the gas stove, I think.

I have never, ever held a muffin the way Ted is holding his. It looks like he's ready to throw a hand grenade.

Shmoopie said...

Regina, my thoughts exactly for the last however many days we've seen these muffins now!

Note to the illustrator: You do NOT bite into a muffin like it’s an apple. You just don’t!

Step 1: (I shouldn’t have to say this, but…) Remove the paper!
Step 2: Separate the top from the stump
Step 3: Eat the stump
Step 4: East the top – because you always want to save the best for last

MUFFING - the new way to eat MUFFINS!

Vince said...

Ted seems to be eating muffins endlessly as the drama continues to unfold.

TimP said...

@Shmoopie, if I may humbly dissent, and to borrow your terminology, I like to have a more or less equal amount of stump and top in each bite.

So now we find out Mary's supposed to invest in this scheme. Remember when Toby had her identity stolen on the net and Mary lectured her about that? And Dawn was scammed by a married man who said he wasn't. And Wilbur, well we all know what happened to Wilbur. So I'm waiting for the FBI to burst out of Mary's bedroom and arrest Ted for interstate fraud.
