Maybe she's invited Vince Gill and Willie Nelson to do a live concert in Wilbur's shower since his radio stopped working.
She ordered him a McMoonPie for dessert.-- Scottie McW.
"After dinner we'll drive up to Lookout Point to retrieve your car. Of course, the local teenagers have been using it as a make-out station. The fumigators should just be removing the tent as we arrive. "
I think Wilbur is actually asking "What the .... is a showcase?!!!" I mean, other than a place to display emeralds in a jewelry store. Thanks a lot for the reminder, Mary.
Wanders, I love the way you think! It's hard to top your idea. There better be extremely dense clouds of steam to totally obscure any views of Wilbur.This restaurant doesn't look like an after-dinner showcase type of place. The only time I've seen a server carry a tray like that was in a circa 1935 movie (and the food was snazzier than a burger, fries, and ketchup, and the waiter was wearing a tux). Maybe the "showcase" is karaoke, and Mary, Toby, Ian, and Wilbur will serenade a bottle of Heinz Ketchup with "Anticipation."
Salsa lessons? Or Dawn has returned from Italy thus thankfully sparing us a very boring few weeks of a Dawn's adventures in Italy story?
Entertainer Esme will be performing as she lost her job on the cruise ship and has resorted to entertaining in McDonald's as the resident Ronald McDonald. After the show her and Wilbur will go outside for a smoke.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled"Is This An Intervention Or The Price Is Right?"Surprise?Special showcase!Amazing! Is?
I had much the same thought as Anonymous at 8:19–the same 1-D troupe from “Porkchops and Acrobats”. But perhaps it’s the Santa Royale Community Players doing choral readings of selected “Ask Wendy” and “Survivor Stories” columns.
Mary's video of Wilbur drunkenly slobbering at Lookout Below Point has gone viral. He's famous!-- Scottie McW.
She arranged a showcase at a restaurant. Wow, that could really happen. A showcase implies more than one act so perhaps it's the acrobats, Esme, Fabiana, and then outside to the patio to see the hot air balloon parade.
Didn't Mary take over Ask Wendy for the entire year Wilbur was traveling to Antarctica and Columbia and maybe some other places? I think the showcase may be Mary reading Mary's favorite Wendy columns that Mary wrote while Wilbur was gone.
And not only a "showcase" but a SPECIAL showcase, as opposed to one of those ratty, run-of-the-mill showcases. Mary needs either an editor or a dictionary, and maybe she could update her vernacular to the 21st century. I'm with KitKat. The modern version of a showcase (last seen in 1955 on the Lawrence Welk Show) is karaoke.
Wow! One therapy session and the news that his column has been reinstated in the local newspaper has cured Wilbur's suicidal depression. What a neat bow for KM to wrap this goofy storyline with. Such a sad mix of incompetent and lazy.
KitKat, if I weren't so lazy and already over-worked today, your mention of "Anticipation" would have inspired me to parody "You're So Vain" as a song from everybody else to Wilbur, who is, of course, so lame. For starters, you've got the near rhyme of Bogota and Saratoga, and the rest will practically write itself. Here, I'll kick it off and somebody with more time on his/her hands can bring it home:"You walked into Rick's Sporting Goodslike you were going to buy a new pair of shoes,your hair strategically combed across bare scalp,etc"
Doesn’t Toby look like Iris in panel two?
Good idea, Yahoonski, but it will take someone alot more creative than I am to pick up where you left off. All I could come up with is:You're so lame,I'll bet you think this blog is about you, Don't you?Don't you?
All I can think of is the Showcase Showdown from the Price is Right. Does he have to compete to win fabulous prizes?I wonder if he got his car back? Where I live (mining-based city in the middle of nowhere in northern Canada), any vehicles left abandoned outside of town are stripped of their wheels, trashed, burned, and flipped over. Seeing that happen to Wilbur's car would be amazing.
"Wilbur, originally this was going to be a hybrid night out at a fancy restaurant / intervention. Then, Mr. Allora made a motion at the most recent Charterstone Board Meeting and we agreed that instead we would chip in for multiple wine of the week club subscriptions for you. On any given day, you can expect multiple bottles of wine to arrive in the mail. And, even better, Zzzerr, a young man we happen to have recently met heard about your woes and wanted to help out. He has plans tonight so couldn't make be here, but he coded up an app for your phone. All you have to do is open the app and it orders you a new shower radio complete with batteries installed via, [cough], Amazak Primo.
@Chin Napkin - is Santa Royale banning all napkins in the same way they are trying to ban plastic straws? Sunday's strip shows NO napkins of any kind on the table at the Burgers and Fries Cafe.
@Anonymous - KM banned Chin Napkin after she realized that Uncle Joe was sending secret messages to us through him.
A special showcase? What could it be? I'm so excited! And by excited, I mean bored. Bored and perplexed. A showcase?? Hey, maybe Zak and Iris have been taking salsa lessons, and they're going to perform for everyone! That would be special, all right.Speaking of Iris, I also thought that was Iris next to Ian for a minute, and was confused.I love the start of "You're So Lame," and I really hope someone picks it up and runs with it. I love the line about the combover especially.
Ooh! Goody Gumdrops! A SPECIAL SHOWCASE!!!First, there'll be little Olive Taylor with her tummy brain saying that Wilbur will only be happy from now on.Then, we'll have Agitated Aggie from Pax Wellness do a verbal smackdown of Iris and Fabiana in a hip-hop karaoke song.Then, we'll have John Dill bring out a giant pink cake for dessert with a giant pink sugar-spun statue of Mary Worth dressed as Mother Nature.Everyone will be happy. THE END... then ... POOL PARTY!... then ... new characters arrive in Charterstone, and Mary introduces herself!
