I read Mary Worth and I VOTE!

Thank you, Wanders! It wouldn't be the new year without the Worthy Awards. A blessed 2019 to all in the Worthiverse.

Cleveland chapter of the Worthiverse denied right to vote in the Worthies unless they have a paid subscription to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Missing ballots in 2018 Worthies found in basement of the Comics Curmudgeon.

Third recount in Panel of the Year proves inconclusive.

Ted Miller arrested for harassing The Cupcake Lady of Coronado; he is disqualified from consideration in the guest character category.

Former character Chin Napkin questions eligibility of Mary’s Muffins due to inconsistent size, shape, and appearance.

Fresno Pennysaver cancels Mary Worth; replaces with Henry, cites ‘more interesting dialogue’.

Wanders said...

Meg, scandal is always good for readership. Thank you.

Regina Wolfe-Parks said...

Great choices, Wanders. The only category missing is Nance's Haiku. Hopefully we won't need an investigation for Russian meddling in the voting process!

Michael Beaumier said...

The ballot was confusing — and I think I voted for Pat Buchanan instead of Wilbur. An easy mistake, and probably a common one.

Nance said...

I'm impressed, Wanders! In a year of Turmoil, you still managed to get the Worthies off the ground. You're a man with his Priorities in order.

Martin said...

When do I get my "I Voted" sticker? I want to feel superior to all who don't vote.

fauxprof said...

I think Muffin Hat qualifies for panel of the decade. Is saying that considered campaigning within fifty feet of the polling place?

KitKat said...

Another stellar production, Wanders! With all you've been doing, you must be the Emperor of Organization and Multi-Tasking! It's too bad Hugh Bonneville decided to take that New Year's Eve gig in Vienna for PBS instead of hosting the Worthy Awards, but he'll be sorry some day.

I know you've been a little busier than usual this past year, Wanders, but hey - no opening number? I am bummed! I was so hoping to see a compilation of karaoke clips sent in by the Worthiverse folks.

Wanders, the old couple gets my vote for Inconsequential Character solely on the basis of your brilliant "Santa Royale Gothic" label. But I fear that recency bias will propel Brony to victory, which would be akin to Adam Sandler winning an Oscar. It will likely be the only thing Brony ever wins.

As much as I like Ted the Character as Guest Character, I gotta go with the ubiquitous Muffins, who did Herculean work this year.

Third, for Recurring Character, I go with Mr. Allora because all the other characters are so unlikable.

Finally, there is no doubt as to the Panel of the Year.

Everything's upside down in the post-Joe era. The panel nominees are intentionally funny, and the stories worse than ever.

Mikey said...

2019 Predictions: Wilbur fails at something again and Dawn ends up fighting her evil twin over their Amish farmer boyfriend, Doctor Jeff discovers he's allergic to Mary and Mr. Allora begins smothering condo residents in their sleep.

Laura Huxley said...

"I read Mary Worth, and I VOTE."

This should be a thing in the world. That is not the bumper sticker America needs right now, but it is the one we deserve!

Richardf8 said...

Dang, I can’t believe Obama the psychologist wasn’t there.

Robert said...

Anything Wilbur gets my vote. That sandwich inhaling machine!

AhClem said...

Where is my MAGA (Mary's Always Giving Advice) hat?

Cassandra Cat's Lawyer said...

"Iris Head In Coffee Steam" from December 22, 2017, missed the eligibility window last year. Nevertheless, even with stiff competition -- especially from the awesome "The Quadrumvirate of Abandonment" -- "Iris Head In Coffee Steam" is still in my estimation the "worthiest" selection for 2018's "Outstanding Floating Head". So this is my write-in vote!

Matt said...

I think Libby is going to clean up at this year's Worthy Awards!

Unknown said...

Muffins & Wilbur by a landslide from this reader! Libby annoying Mary could have been milked another month or three. Feel like we got gypped there. Yet I understand. Mary losing power status to a feline for such a prolonged period would understandably taint Mary's omnipotence in the long run.

I voted. Where do I pick up my I voted muffin?
