Mary Worth 3120

I feel like that dog is up to something. Maybe pulling some sort of con on Libby the One-Eyed Cat because, you know, she only has one eye.

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"It's All About The Benjamens For Arther".

Just send me the money!
Tomorrow!
No. This.
Finally, apart
Even better!
Several months!
Wait!

@Nance, I spotted that artful misspelling in your BFH title. Well and subtly done.

Oh, that poor, sad dog. Somebody please call the local SPCA animal cops. With veterinary care, he might yet be saved from the toxic green mold disease permeating Arthu(e)r’s...um...abode.

Our time apart? They have never been together...

Nance said...

@fauxprof--Thanks! ;-)

@Nance, you've hit another home run with today's BFH title, and I love your sly, witty social commentary.

There's been speculation that the dog outside Beautiful Man's hovel is a statue because no one believes Arthur/er would take even marginal care of any creature. Today an unfortunate dog is actually indoors. Another statue, or a real dog that lost its acting job as a Bumpus hound in a production of A Christmas Story and was unfortunate enough to end up with Arthur/er?

That poor dog has such a haunted look on his/her face as if to say "I've seen things...terrible things." The poor animal probably has to survive on whatever scraps fall out of Arthur/er's mouth and wifebeater and onto the floor. He/she is probably hoping that Arthur/er gets the 5K so he/she can get a decent meal. Let's hope someone raids this hovel and someone like Mr. Wynter can adopt him/her.

"It may be several months. I can't wait that long. I'm down to my last clean wifebeater and need to get a new one."

Okay, Moy, you've clearly established that she's not sending him any more money, so let's move it along. No reason we should see the same conversation every day of the week. Again.

I see Artie's extra finger has disappeared. He must have some kind of mutant lizard DNA where his digits spontaneously grow and fall off in random patterns.

Great additions to the jukebox, Wanders. The only thing missing is "It's Not Easy Bein' Green"

Give Artheur credit. Not many men would have the self confidence to wear that belly shirt. And it seems his manager told him to back off on the belligerent screaming that Estelle is selfish.

RobC said...

It's 1pm. The dog wants his 4pm supper WAAAAY more than Arthur/er wants Estelle's life savings. This grift is taking FOREVER! [insert high pitch whine]

RobC said...

Whoa! I just saw this news report:
"Gravy-Covered Laptop Leads To ***** **** Bust
Iowan, 54, collared after seeking aid from "Geek Squad" members."

Could this crawling story arc be "ripped from the headlines?"

Arthur/er DOES have food stains. Has Estelle texted some image we'd rather not know about? Cougar P**n?

I can't touch the hilarious comments here, everyone! Stellar! My contribution today is a link to the FBI's cyber crime reporting web site. Estelle needs this stat. They cited romance scams as a particular scenario they want to know about... www.ic3.gov

I think Estelle should have read this article before jumping into her affair:

https://www.scamwatch.gov.au/types-of-scams/dating-romance

I'm starting to wonder if that nasty, plate licking homeless guy Estelle dated is any relation to Arthur/er-perhaps father/son? They seem to have the same personal hygiene.

Arther needs the money for his anger management classes. Send Arther money for his anger management classes. Thank you.
