Mary Worth 3397

Well, now we know why Madi was able to only pack one small carry-on for her three month stay with Saul. She packed it so tight that it spontaneously exploded when she plopped it on the couch.

Looking at the size of her feet, Madi must be typing her application to Clown College.

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"Saul Is Mindful Of The PG Rating Of This Blog".

Madi...
Oh my!

Nance said...

Every time I read this girl's name, I pronounce it Maid-y. The spelling of it irritates me to no end. I cannot help it; if it were to be pronounced Maddy, then put the other D in there: Maddi.

I have to go chase some kids off my lawn now.

Groan, I hate this story line already because Karen and June have already gone way over the top with it. You know they're going to exaggerate Madi's behavior well beyond the limits of likely and make the whole thing unbelievable, and not in an amusing way, but in an annoying way.

[sigh]

Oh well, there must be something I can find to laugh about. Let's see. Wanders has covered the clothes angle, and Peggy has the feet. . . . . . . . . . . . . Nope, that's about it.

[sigh again]

At least Madi doesn't have a nose or cheek piercing.

Yet.

NO BOOTS ON THE COUCH!

Madi certainly has aged, she looks about 24.

Madi not only looks older, she's also doubled in size! Must be a "Hulk Angry" thing.

This gets my vote for the most ridiculously contrived Mary Worth storyline ever. So I'm stuck between following it for the sake of the snark or ignoring it entirely for year it will run.

I wonder if Lyle will continue to pay Madi's cell phone bill. I think she has an unlimited-data plan, which could be pricey.

I'm with Scottie McW and Tim on this one. Since Lyle and Saul have been out of touch for at least 10 years, did Lyle even ask Saul if he had a spare bedroom? Does this panel imply that Madi is going to be sleeping on the couch for 3 months? Dumb...

That girl's got some powerful legs. Sign her up for the summer travel softball team, Saul. You and Greta can go to the games and cheer. "Nice hit, Madi!" "Woof!"

Sorry to keep harping on the color scheme in the worthiverse, but I can't help notice that Madi's clothes all conform to the approved hues, with the exception of the ochre thingies draped over the back of the couch. They are almost glaringly defiant of convention and perhaps the real reason for Saul's "Oh my!" And I can't help but wonder if this story will offer further parallels to another famous story featuring an old man and a tough, independent young woman with a similar name, namely Mattie Ross in Charles Portis's classic, "True Grit." Instead of a dachshund, of course, Rooster Cogburn had a pet cat named General Sterling Price, but still...

Clothing and underwear and feet on the couch..Oh my! (A shout out to the Wizard of Oz.)

Madi sure didn't take long to make herself comfortable. Why would you open your tiny suitcase and throw every blessed thing on the couch is beyond me unless she was looking for her phone and then realized that she had it in her hand. (I try to overthink KM, which is next to impossible.)

I think Myster Wynter will at first try to kill her with kindness until Madi tells him "Beat it, old man. Now go out and get me some butts." He'll then be cowering in a corner with Greta.

KitKat said...

Wanders and all of you, you brought your Snark A Game today - LOL.

Madi’s small suitcase must be like Strega Nona’s pasta pot, which generated an endless supply of spaghetti. Maybe another pair of giant boots will shoot out next.

Nance, you read my mind regarding the spelling and pronunciation of that kid’s name. Let’s all think of her as Maid-y.

MissScarlet said...

Say what you will, this story line is infinitely more interesting than anything with Dawn or Wilbur.

MissScarlet said...

Yes....sigh....it is a low bar.

LouiseF said...

Given the mess she's already created, I doubt this young lady will put up with being called anything resembling the word "Maid", unless she's calling one (maid) and billing the services to Saul's credit card, which she will have stolen from his wallet as he sleeps uncomfortably in Greta's bed. Ditto on KitKat's comment regarding everyone's snark today! And Nance scores another goal along with yesterday's BFH.

Since when did Saul become so passive? Wasn't he originally a cranky old dude? Anyway, all I can hear is Archie Bunker: "Now wait just a minute here, little goil!"
