Mary Worth 3189

Gurrrrrrl! Ha ha ha ha ha!

Everything in France is so much better than in the U.S., how can you even think this?

I like the fact that in the panel shown in the post, I can't even tell which of them is which because their hair is so similar! I would have guessed that Dawn was the one on the right, but given that her thought bubble is coming from the person on the left, I guess I'm wrong.

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"Dumb Dawn, Apparently Deaf, Wonders If Hugo Will Settle For The Rest Of His Pretentious Life".

Love.
Always...
Could, give up
Me?

Just another day on Three Mile Island beach. The plot these past few days is so dreadfully dull. I am rooting for Hugo to go back to gay Paree and Dawn to go moping on the "Thinkin' and drinkin'" cliff.

Pool Party!

Are they on a beach or an island with that palm tree? If it's a beach, where the heck is everyone else? Did Dawn and Hugo scare them away with their blandness?

KitKat said...

@Nance, another incisive and hilarious BFH title! Brava, brava!

If all of us concentrate REALLY, REALLY hard, can we use our collective powers to move Dorian far west and hit the deserted beach these two knuckleheads are on? (Well, I can dream, can’t I?)

I find this whole storyline more bearable by imagining Hugo’s voice as vintage Pepe Le Pew. Would that Dawn were as resistant as the unfortunate little black cats who ran away from Pepe. Would that Mary Worth could be as interesting as a Looney Tunes cartoon series I’ve seen approximately 5,000 times.

Is that the moon or the sun? If that's the moon, you guys on the west coast are so lucky. We only have sunsets here on Cape Cod; no moonsets.

Now I know what Dawn is majoring in college. Insipidness.

Wonderful comments again today, everyone, and the secret message made me chuckle out loud!

Maybe Dawn could give up her country and move to France. Bahnjurrr, mahnsewer, oo ay el community college? Practice-voo le yoga?

Downpuppy said...

If that's a setting full moon, they've been on the beach all night. If it's rising, they're in Morocco.
I think it's the least colorful sunset ever.

Actually Hugo can't stay. We have a family member in the same situation and his French sweetie cannot outstay is student visa. How timely this could be, if Moy would bring in the current immigration political situation/issues.

KitKat said...

@HeavenlyJane, Moy and reality never intersect.

@Sandi Ego, you cracked me up bigly.

Dawn, you know everything is better in France — he’s been telling you this all summer long. You’re only proving his point, encouraging him and embarrassing us nationally.

Steve G said...

Unlike Dawn - Hugo may be going to college to learn some skills and get a job (gasp!)

He will have to go where the jobs are.
Doubtful any Santa Royale company will want to go through the legal effort and expense to secure a visa for an entry level position (even though he has studied English Lit under Professor Cameron).

Unless, or course, Hugo marries Dawn and becomes the new "Ask Wendy"!

Joolz said...

Will Hugo ever finish his sentence from the 29th? "I love the U.S., and I love -- " what? Paris even more? Gross makeout scenes? Myself?

KitKat said...

SATURDAY
Dawn’s trying to communicate by mental telepathy, but Hugo either refuses to cooperate or can’t get a word in sideways.

KitKat said...

SUNDAY
Hey, where is everyone? Spending the holiday weekend on a deserted beach, just like the Simpletons?

Today’s strip explains why Dawn has been in college for about 17 years. Mentally and emotionally, she’s 12.

Questions for scholars of D.H. Lawrence, such as Prof. Cameron:

1. Weeds are living things. Do they desire love?

2. Amoebae are living things. Do they desire love?

3. Mary Worth is a living thing. Does she desire love?

Sorry, that's all I got. Being exposed to the inner workings of Dawn's mind has damaged my own.

In this latest episode of "From Here to Mediocrity", I find myself wondering if Dawn and Hugo are going to pick up that discarded cup and plate, or are they going to leave them here on the beach? Bet they're both made of styrofoam (the picnic items, not Dawn and Hugo, although that COULD be a possibility). I see it all washing out to sea when the Distracteds walk away, adding to the giant island of trash in the Pacific. Good going, you two environmentalists...

Put a fork in it. It's overdone! ( Holy Worth! I had to do about 15 gotchas to post this!!!)

Rules for Charterstone Private Beach

1. The first rule of Charterstone Private Beach: There is no Charterstone Private Beach.

2. If Wilbur Weston shows up in his Speedo, avert your eyes.

3. If Old Man Wynter shows up with his little dog, watch where you walk.

4. If Tommy Beedie shows up, watch your wallet. (He’s an ex-con, you know.)

5. If Zak shows up, don’t let Hugo get into a ‘cooler than thou’ throw down with him. (e.g., ‘In Paree, the video games are tres cool.’) Then Zakkicks sand in the Frenchman’s smug face.

6. If Professor Cameron shows up in his tartan mankini, avert your eyes, and whatever you do, don’t mention Bobby Burns or Sir Walter Scott. Or the Bay City Rollers.

7. If Mr. Allora shows up, make sure there are no cigarette butts or beer bottles or other debris around. You don’t want to anger the mighty Alora. And don’t ask him how many’s l’s are in his name.

8. If Dr. Harlan Jones shows up, pretend you don’t notice when he pretentiously practices yoga, or
Parkours ostentatiously, or pompously praises da Vinci.

9. And if Mary Worth approaches with a plate of kumquat muffins, CODE RED! Abandon Beach!
Ahhh-oogah! Ahhh-oogah!
