I keep thinking Myster Wynter is some sort of stage name for a professional wrestler. I definitely want to see him in a cage match with His Own Demons.
I am less enamored of the muffin induced soporific Toby who doesn't reflexively object to having anything further to do with old man Wynter.In other news, Mary's slacks are awful.
@TimP, Mary’s ensemble is awful.Fighting demons would make anyone grumpy, if not downright exhausted and more. The old fellow may be perfectly happy with only his dog, but now he’ll have to fight a crazed meddler determined to break him. OMG, it’s the Mary Demon! Run for your life, Wynter! And your little dog too!
"Everyone has their own demons. For example, I absolutely cannot mind my own business. And I am obsessed with lacing my muffins with an undetectable carcinogen that has claimed many lives over the past decade. I also lace them with a low-dose opioid to keep my victims coming back for more. But of course, I don't fight these demons, I embrace them. Muffin?"-- Scottie McW.
Since KM is generally devoid of original thoughts, she may be going for a skewed version of “Up”, with Mary playing the helpful little scout. Or perhaps it’s going to be “A Christmas Carol”, Mary taking the role of all three ghosts. Given the usual glacial pace of a plot, Wynter’s redemption could easily finish up on December 25th, with him hoisting Tiny Tom Beedie up on his shoulder. God Bless Us, every one.
Mary's enjoying a victory tour without first having a victory. I generally aim to be gracious with people but Mary would turn me vicious.
How profound Mary! One has to fight one's own demons? WHO ELSE COULD? YOU SHRIVELED UP MUFFIN PUSHING, ADVICE GIVING, POOL PARTY GOING, NOSYPANTS!BTW, why would the anti social old grump attend the pool party in the first place? Wouldn't is be more likely that he's sitting in his semi-basement level apartment complaining about the music?
Never mind this being kind baloney. Two words to fix Mr. Wynter: "Karaoke Night !" Works every time.
@ tim shanahan, my theory is that Mr. Wynter was putting on a performative display of contempt for his neighbors. I can think of few more effective ways of doing so than perching his aggressive yappy dog on a table and then demonstratively feeding it the food they prepared for the party.
@ tim shanahan - I will admit to being an old grump but also a dog lover. I expect Old Man Wynter showed up at the pool party simply because he knows how much Bella loves salmon squares. And, believe me, one would have to be a true dog lover to allow her that indulgence. I can't even imagine cleaning up her ... well, let's just say, I can't even imagine the outcome of Bella eating salmon squares that have been sitting out in the sun all afternoon.
This reminds me of a movie from back in the day: “Arsenic and Old Muffins”, in which a pair of dotty old ladies aim to help miserable old men by poisoning them and concealing their bodies in the window seat. Congratulations on your keen instincts, Myster Wiynter. Aha! Have you noticed there are characters who exit Charterstone and are never ever seen or mentioned again? Does Bloody Mary have a window seat?
"Mary Worth" has gotten pretty interesting! Not quite as interesting as "Judge Parker" is these days, but pretty interesting.The lilies in the foreground of panel one have me worried. I think that they are symbolic foreshadowing of Mary getting her comeuppance for bothering poor old Mr. Wynter! (You can see that I've been paying attention in my English class at Milford High!)I think Toby has given up. She knows she can't win.
If it turns out that his own demon is Bella, this storyline will get a LOT more interesting. Fingers crossed!
On the official "Mary Worth" website, there's a blog post called "Positively Mary!" (if you scroll down beneath the comic). It has a link to an interview with Karen Moy. I thought the most interesting comment was when Moy said that Mary isn't perfect. (GASP!)
So old man Wynter's dog died. Maybe choked on a salmon square.
Monday: Old man Wynter’s dog died. It was salmon treats poisoning. Expect a lawsuit soon.
