Correction, Estelle: You don't have that money anymore.
Correction, Mary: You're judging everyone.
Boy, Estelle's taking a rather snippy attitude with Mary. I can't wait for Mary to say "I told you so", when Estelle finds out that Stinky McStinkton took her for a very expensive ride.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled"Things Sound Different When You Explain Them To Your Cat".Bank money.A lot?Ten grand. Have!Judging! Known?
Today’s Invisible Panel 3: Mary pulls the purple bottle out of her grocery bag and bops Estelle on her head while exclaiming, “Estelle, you’re a bigger ding-dong than Hanna Dingdon, and that’s saying A LOT!!”
"How long have I known him? What are you getting at, Mary? Do you think I'm some kind of idiot?""Umm . . ."Estelle storms back to her apartment, yells at Libby to leave her alone, and finds a message on her answering machine."Estelle, darling, it's me, Arther. You're not going to believe this, but we've had another accident. . . ."-- Scottie McW.
P.S. Hilarious BFH title, Nance!-- S. McW.
What a stupid thing for Estelle to say. "It's not like I don't have the money." And Mary, Estelle said nothing about judging.
Did the "ten grand" from Estelle jar anybody else's ear? She seems like the kind who would say "thousand dollars" rather than grand, or large, or Clevelands. In any case, as some body (Wanders?) recently pointed out, these ladies are looking foxier every day.
They are looking foxier, Yahooski, but I so miss Mary's matronly face. Thank goodness it still appears at the top of Wanders' blog.
Nance, brilliant!And not only do things sound different when you explain them to your cat, but if you ignore the subtleties of your cat's meow as you go out the door, you can end up being grilled about your decision making by Mary Worth.
What woman of that age and social class would say "Ten grand?" She might as well have gone all the way and said "Ten large."
Since Estelle has the money, and is so stupid, I have a few acres for sale near the Everglades....
Estelle is so dumb, I have a bridge in Brooklyn, I need to unload.I'm in agreement with everyone-what so called educated woman says ten grand, unless she's in a Damon Runyon story. "Luck be a smelly guy tonight!"
Estelle's "ten grand" fell with a clunk on my ears, too. Maybe she has a rougher past than we assumed, though she certainly never developed any street smarts. She could have thrown one of these at Mary:"Ten thousand clams""One hundred Benjamins""Ten thousand dead presidents""Five hundred Jacksons"
Yes Estelle, it's exactly like that; you don't have the money.
Mary may or may not be judging you, Estelle (she is), but all of us here are judging you. A lot. And badly.Re: the "ten grand" comment, maybe Estelle's next line will be, "Hey, it's what a dame should do for her fella. What are you, a copper?" Then she'll pull out a cigarette and smoke it, Jannie-style.
Imjb1964: Shouldn't that be, "It's what a doll should do for her guy"? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ffhoq8ovntwAlthough the song focuses on guys shelling out big bucks for their dolls, in modern times the financial outlays can run in either direction. Ah, equality!
I think Jimmy was a mobster and Estelle was his moll. I can hear her talking like a female good fella.
Arther better start quoting more poetry soon or the money well is going to dry up quickly.
@Jana C.H. "Guys and Dolls" definitely crossed my mind. :) Somehow dame sounded more gangsta, in the 1940's version of that word.Forgot to say to Nance: That title was hilarious.Captcha has been getting very particular lately! Does seem to have cut down on the spam, though.
Mary, it’s only ten large, doll. And this is the life I have chosen.
Green glow Arthur will wind up feeding the fishes.
Oh brother...a few lousy poems and she knows him well enough. Wait'll she tries to call Arthur/Arther and the number has been disconnected. Can we get Libby away from this nut.
Rather than take her groceries for a walk while tsk'ing at her neighbor, Mary could actually give Estelle some timely advice. The Consumer Financial and Protection Bureau (CFPB) is hosting a webinar on issues and trends in elder financial exploitation on April 9 (a real thing). Since by then Estelle will have realized she's been scammed, I think she should watch. On an unrelated note, I have been reading a book with the first year of Brenda Starr by Dale Messick. "The Redheaded Bombshell". Some of you may remember Brenda from your childhood. Jeez, the comics have become tame since then! Kidnapping, blatant sexism, treachery, and more. Plus Brenda has an amazing wardrobe. Now we're reduced to fretting over financial crimes and curing heartache with karaoke..
Louise, I was thinking the same thing -- how nice it is of Mary to take her groceries out for a walk. They probably haven't had much fresh air lately.Unfortunately, Mary's secret vice -- a 16-pack of frozen White Castle sliders -- is beginning to thaw in the bag.-- S. McW.
ThursdayI'm surprised and disappointed that Mary does not use her own reusable grocery bags. Another climate-change denier?Comics Kingdom would not load this morning. I figured the site crashed in response to Estelle's idiocy, but the interface has been updated, plus it's now "Hearst Comics Kingdom."Wanders, is it too obvious to request Happy Together by the Turtles for the Charterstone Jukebox? I wonder if Estelle is including Libby when she asserts that "we're going to be happy together."
This would be a convenient time for crime-fighter Terry Bryson to stroll by.
Poor deluded Estelle. Poor, deluded, stupid Estelle. Can't wait for Mary to tell her "I wish we had talked BEFORE you went to the bank!"
