Maybe you could spend the week walking in the park or standing on a cliff. That always helps to change your perspective.
OH NOOOO, we're in an endless Moping Wilbur loop! How much more of this can we take? If Mary shows up at his door with muffins, we'll all be ready for a cliff jump. (Is Baren Koy on vacation? In Italy perhaps?)
Moy, make it stop! Please, just make it stop!Meanwhile in Beautiful Italy, Dawn is delighted to run into a local banker on the street who offers to exchange her American dollars for Italianos at no charge.-- Scottie McW.
The Sick Sense by Moy Night Shyamalan Plot twist: After learning Bogota is landlocked, Wilbur realizes he has beaten his tummy brain into submission with TV dinners. Once exposed to actual food, his tummy brain reached all the way from Bogota to Santa Clara and sensed he was losing Iris. Tummy brain prepared him for the loss by giving him a dream about betrayal by a salsa dancer. That's why there was a beach in Bogota, why Wilbur's finances seem unaffected by the expensive ring, why he never told Mary about the salsa dancer... none of it happened.Mary plays the Bruce Willis part and teaches Wilbur to use his tummy brain to help people. Wilbur leaves Santa Clara for good, hoping for a spinoff strip.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled"Wilbur, As We Now Learn, Has A Certificate In Wallowing, With A Special Emphasis On Overshare".Are?Blues. Hank Williams, Willie Nelson!Cathartic, temporary.Healing nature. Outdoors!
Wilbur just spent A YEAR (we were told) traveling the 4 corners of the world, including Antarctica, researching stories for the Survivor Stories column in the Santa Royale Gazette or whatever. He was happy to be home (for a few days) until home sucked - Iris moved on, Dawn went on a cool trip to Italy, Santa Royale is boring he says, he apparently has no friends besides Mary, and plenty more. And now we are in Groundhog Day watching Wilbur whine in a hole of self-pity that he keeps digging deeper. How does the time loop stop? It may take years to find out . . .
Wilbur Wallows and Wails to Hank Williams While Wasting Water.Say it three times quickly. Or don’t. I Wouldn’t.
Uh-oh! Mary wants to take Wilbur back to Lookout Point! She's sorry she didn't push him over the brink!
I normally don't talk to my female friends about what I'm doing in the shower.
Did Wilbur actually tell Mary he sought solace by singing in the shower?That's, I don't what's the word? Stupid, stupid is the word. This is a stupid plot turn. Doesn't Wilbur have any actual friends he can go to the bar with? Or hiking? Or to the gym? I know he doesn't go to church because Mary is his goddess but really. It seems Maren Koy has not clue one as to what the real world is like.
(Posted this in yesterday's comments, not sure how to delete it there...)Try holding your phone the way Wilbur is holding in in p2. It just does not work.I was wondering who the guy with the pencil mustache and goatee was in the picture above Wilbur's desk, then I realized that it's (I think) Dawn. And I wonder where he got those books with the colorful covers? I guess not from the library, since all of their books are grey.And is Mary trying to lure Wilbur back to Lookout Point again? Seems a little ominous. (I see anonymous at 10:08 had the same thought.) Oh well, at least she has eyeballs. Or maybe the disappearing eyeball problem has resolved itself? It was a big problem back in 2016 (I'm a little behind the times.)
How about "I Ain't Got Nobody" for the jukebox.Louis Armstrong version is my favorite
That picture of Dawn is hideous. It looks like her driver's license photo or a mug shot. You could have chose a better picture of her Wilbore. (Well, then again, maybe not.) I am beyond sick of Wilbur. If I was Mary, If I saw his number on caller ID, I'd let it go to voicemail. But then, Mary can't resist a good meddle and Wilbur's giving her fuel for the fire. Like someone said (I think Meg) Maren Koy must be in beautiful Italy and she has the strip on autopilot while she's away. I can't think of any other reason why we have to have a story line about the most unlikable character in the strip. And Maren, if you can pull yourself away from the floating villas in Beautiful Italy, make the autopilot never show us Wilbur singing country tunes in the prison shower again. There was a total "ick" factor about the last few days.Anonymous @10:11. I don't talk to ANY of my friends about what I'm doing in the shower. Not only is Wilbur a crashing bore, but he's inappropriate as well.
One more thing I forgot to mention: I see that Wilbur's proudly displaying his diploma from Trump University on the wall.
Photo of Dawn on wall...woof woof!!
