Mary Worth 3117

Don't sound so desperate, Arthur Z. It's not very attractive.

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"Let's Hope Selfish Is Queen Estelle's Trigger Word".

Pays. Then funds!
Of course do! Amazing!
My Queen...means now!

"Estelle, I have a confession to make. I haven't been completely honest with you."

"What do you mean, Arther?"

"There's been some sort of bureaucratic tax foul-up here, and if I don't leave Malaysia right away, they're going to put me in prison. I didn't tell you because I didn't want you to worry."

"Oh, Arther, my brave king, you SHOULD have told me. Just hold tight and I'll send you the money right away."

"Estelle, my beautiful love, you've just saved my life. I owe you so much."

-- Scottie McW.

If Arthur/er continues to smoke in bed, this situation may resolve itself in a different way than either he or Estelle expect.

Why doesn't Estelle suggest that she can get on airplane and go visit him?
That probably makes too much sense.
I'd like to see Estelle bump into green glow at the grocery store.

I gave a donation to Wanders and he said he would meet with me soon! (although he said he would be delayed a few weeks) Can't wait!

I think this is the first comic that I can almost smell the stink coming off of Green Meanie Arther/ur.

Arther/us is an amatuer compared to Ted Confey. He got fifty grand off of Adrian Corey by saying his (imagiary) sister was in desperate trouble. Doesn't Arther/ur have any relatives that he can use to play on Estelle's heartstrings? Even Fabiana and "cousin' Pedro got 30K out of Wilbur. Arther/ur needs to step up his grifting game. Start by calling her "Queenie".

I've come to the conclusion that every person in Santa Royale with any kind of money is an idiot. Mary is the only one that seems to be able to hang onto her dough.

It's telling how Arthu(e)r can't be bothered to wait until after their call to smoke a cigarette. Between that, the typos, the easily discoverable proxy photo and the absurdly minimalist cover story, his investment in this grift is embarrassingly minimal. Which is to say, as noted several times previously, that KM might have done a bit more research on the topic beyond the first link from a search for elderly fraud.

I'm pretty sure those are bedbugs on Arthu/er's pillow...

If "selfish" doesn't make Estelle come to her meager senses then nothing will. Does the woman not have a functional tummy brain?

Carlye said...

Calling HER selfish? That should be the final straw for any woman, no matter how stupid. Who is sending the money here?

Bill the Butcher said...

Arther angry! Arther begin his transformation into the Incredible Bulk! Green radiation glow explained at last! You no like Arther when he angry! Pay Arther or Arther smash!

"Selfish" two days in a row, and Estelle does not hang up on this guy?
