Mary Worth 2985

Myster Wynter has been slamming doors in peoples faces for so long that he forgot how to close the door when he's with a friend and feeling sad.

I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say, THANK YOU, SAUL!

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"Is That Graffiti, Or Is Mary Getting Shut Out?".

(Alone...help!)
Reminders was...!
Talk...listen!
Can't!
--SLAM!--

I disagree, Wanders. He's not with a friend and feeling sad. He's with a pest and feeling angry.

Mary's pretty tone deaf. They've been talking about this for days, and then he says he doesn't want to talk about it anymore, so Mary wants to know if he wants to talk about it. What he wants, Mary, is for you to go away and leave him alone. Why is that so hard to grasp?

A dead dog named Bella. Freshly dug earth by cat tombstones. And now a quote from Batman. It's a vampire dog, all right.

Delilah said...

Aww, I was pulling for Saul to slam into Toby in the hall and cause her to do a face plant. Dang! Well, one can only hope.

I predict that Mary will force him to adopt a new dog (which will creepily be named Mia) and they will then eat salmon muffins and all will be right with the world.

Cue Toby for tomorrow's strip...

Generations of her victims have wanted to slam a door in Mary’s meddling face. Saul Wynter has finally done it. Way to go, Saul!

That panel of Mary standing in front of the slammed door is among my all time favourite Worthverse panels--up there with muffin on the head and Wilbur's aaaugh! That hallway seems a little unimpressive. I would have thought Charterstone would have been a medium high end condo.

Sandi Ego said...

Can we get to the animal shelter scene already? Or perhaps a lovable stray mutt will show up at Charterstone, shivering in an unexpected rain storm. Maybe Ian will muster the pity that Toby can't and give Saul a Highland coo.

It is about time someone finally slammed their door on that meddling biddy! Finally something real-worldly happens in Mary Worth! I think the next thing on Saul's agenda is to get revenge on Toby for dissing him and Bella. Anyway, I hope it is.

Tomorrow: Mary carefully inches across Saul Wynter’s window ledge, presses her kisser against the glass, and mouths “I’m still available to listen if you want to talk about it.”

Saul writes a new song, "50 ways to Snub Your Neighbor" KitKat, Hilarious!!

Tomorrow: Toby does the “I told you old Man Wynter was a crab” speech.

The last panel is a shoo in for “panel of the year” nomination.

......aaaannnddd, we are back to muffins!

The Ted Miller muffin hat or the door slam? Man, that is one tough choice. I'm leaning toward the door slam, but let's see if it holds up and becomes iconic.

Toby has a lock on ennui. Mary should leave Saul to grieve in peace and divert her energies to the bored, listless muffin-scarfing creature getting in her way in her kitchen. Alas, we all know that Mary will ignore the obvious and instead lay in wait for Old Man Wynter, muffins at hand.

It's possible that Saul has been coming and going via the fire escape. Can't blame the poor guy.

RobC said...

He's really on the floor with a broken hip and can't get up. His feeble sounds to Mary are a cry for help as he suffers from dehydration. Where is his LifeCall badge?? It's up on the mantle clipped to Bella's collar with her rabies tag. The whole plan was that Bella was to be his service dog.
