Mary Worth 2901

Jeff's statement is the most awkward phrase ever to emerge from the friendzone. Yikes. In other words, "Why didn't you invite me? Not as a date of course, but just to join all of you as a friend."

Maybe Mary didn't invite Jeff because she hasn't forgiven him about the Ted incident--the guy who was going to make Mary rich selling muffins.

I was wondering why she didn't invite Dr. Jeff. It seems he's only around when it's convenient for her. (Like stroking her already inflated ego.)

Well, today's strip is just fascinating.

Coming tomorrow: Jeff's shoelace comes undone and he reties it, as Mary helpfully tells him how unsafe loose laces can be.

Is this how they induce comas at this hospital?

I think Jeff has discovered that you can eat lunch for free at the hospital cafeteria every day if you show up wearing a doctor's white jacket. A stethoscope around the neck would help too. Today he's decided to invite Mary to join him for the free lunch.

That tossed salad is more interesting than this story...

Even more interesting than the tossed salad is the generous portion of thumbs in the thumb sandwich.

What are these "bowls" for salad? All we have are cardboard to-go containers at the hospital I work at.

Sandi Ego said...

Yahoonski, that is exactly what I saw first! Mmmm, finger foods.

That looks a wiener on white bread sandwich, loaded up with mayo. Is Wilbur working at the hospital now? That looks like his belly.

Mary's cruel plan to socially isolate Dr. Jeff such that he is completely dependent upon her for nothing so much as only the most blandly exchanged pleasantries is plainly displayed today.

Poor sap.

In panel 2, Mary is thinking, "Hmmm ... my next karaoke victim has presented himself! I can get him to the karaoke bar, coax him into 'performing,' surreptitiously record him on my smartphone and upload the video to my snark-filled blog dedicated to mocking Santa Royale and its residents! SCORE!"

The rest of the week will be devoted to Mary’s traditional victory lap, culminating in Sunday’s summary of said victory lap. I predict that the quotation will be something like “People who need people are the luckiest people in the world”.

It occurred to me that once you have successfully completed jury duty, you are absolved from further service for a two-year period. Now that we’ve suffered through a prolonged Wilbur storyline, shouldn’t he be retired offstage for a similar period of time?

Are we ever going to get a pool party again? I need to have a beer with the Charterstone dwellers after all of this! And some chicken salad appetizers! And some of Mary's muffins!

Wasn't she going to "get her muffins out there" after the Ted Miller incident? What ever happened with her muffin business? So many loose ends ...

MissScarlet said...

I think Mary's reference to "another time" is foreboding. Is Dr. Jeff going to die in the cafeteria? Never mind, that would be way too exciting.

Is it too much to hope for a hiatus from the Westons for a long time? Say forever? Is that too much to ask, Baren Koy?
