Mary Worth 162

Family counseling and bereavement? Forget the book cart! This sounds like a job for Superman!

Mibbitmaker at Comics Curmudgeon ran Donna Amalfi through the anagram machine and made a startling discovery. If the link doesn't land you on the right comment, it is #57.

Bereavement? Family? Counselling? Why, saying that to Mary is like waving a red reag at a bull.

Mary will be able to help the grief-stricken family; after all she has known hardship in her past and overcome it, leaving her feeling compelled to help others.

"Hush now, little orphan children - it is extremely selfish of you to go on and on about your dead parents when Mary is trying to tell you about her childhood."

Or could it be a trap? Is Mary going to be lured into an ambush, taking advantage of her compassion just as Sonny Corleone was lured to his death by his wild temper?

shandyowl: LOL! It would be more interesting if Mary had Toby as her sidekick to aid/lecture this poor, unsuspecting family, now that Toby has been inducted into the "Mary Worth School of Positive Meddling".

Yup, that's what I like when I'm grieving. A shopping cart full of gray dreary books from a gray dreary library. @@

Probably delivered with a long nonsensical monolog full of wonderful platitudes which are only half relevant to the situation.

The poor woman should be warned.

spike: yes - Mary and Toby could put on the old Good-Counsellor Bad-Counsellor routine.

One of them slaps the bereaved and tells them to buck up their ideas and the other lends a sympathetic ear trhen they both go on about Mary's deprived childhood.

birdie: You're right! Forget about the Dewey Decimal or Library of Congress systems--this "special" librarian simply arranges books by color of the cover. "Don't you see it? It's right next to the grey one..."

shandyowl: I think I'm gonna have nightmares...or email Stephan Pastis to do a PBS-MW crossover!
