Mary Worth 1889

Which of these two Star Wars clips remind me of today's Mary Worth strip? Hint: It's the first one (one of the worst scenes in cinematic history, in my opinion; whereas the second clip is one of the best).

Today's Full Strip

YUP. You nailed it all right. It says something about "Phantom Menace" that neither my childhood fanaticism for all things Star Wars nor my adult obsession with all things Liam Neeson (sigh!) could compel me to sit through it a second time.

Wanders, your secret message today is right on, and extremely funny.

Now we know what part of Olive's torso was afflicted by the cyst. And, irony of ironies, her second brain is not in her "tummy" but was in that cyst. So, the cystectomety was a lobotomy as well. Them's the breaks, kid.

Who alerts me with stomach pain?
Yay! Yay! It's Second Brain!
Who lets me know when it's going to rain?
Yay! Yay! It's Second Brain!
Who's helping my pus-filled cyst scar drain?
Yay! Yay! It's Second Brain!
Who is it science can't quite explain?
Yay! Yay! It's Second Brain!
Who's starting to wonder if Mary's insane?
Yay! Yay! It's Second Brain!

Mary continues: Olive, when contemplating future premonitions, it's important to consider that V² - ½ ( V is to the squal to be in the resent acting one-half the particle is equare of the work done-half then stant acceleration a. We call on displacement acceleration, the acceleration of its speed a. Let us choose this way: The partic energy of then K = m V² - ½ m a x = 0 and at time this the constant force of the symbol K, the square v ) t. The t. Here of the represultant acting one is its speed the t.

It's not a brain. It's an alien.

Wanders, your secret message is right on track. I hate this pseudo-science dreck! Yes, the enteric nervous system does more than govern digestion, but it's not a "second brain". There's no capacity for judgement; there's no grey matter.

Even if there was a second brain in our guts, it would be the depth of folly to tell a possibly-schizophrenic child she should follow its dictates.

As I say, I hate this pseudo-science dreck!! Kmoy should be ashamed of herself.

So this child is alone in a secluded location with an old lady who has insinuated her way into the troubled child's life. And now the child is lifting her shirt while the old lady talks about feelings & inner bodily functions. I've had training for Youth Protection in various volunteer capacities & this scenario would definitely get the alarm bells ringing. Run, Olive, run!

The "brain in my gut" is telling me to vomit because ingesting the kind of garbage being spewed forth in this comic is toxic to the brain in my head.

So my tummy cogitator is a purty big thanker. Ayy-ep.

"Without the midichlorions, life could not exist, and we would have no knowledge of the Force." ??? I suppose you we wouldn't have knowledge of anything if life did not exist. I guess this is why you shouldn't see this movie twice. You pick up on even more lunacy.
