Mary Worth 3627

I certainly hope Bella Hadid is not a hand model, because YUK.

Maybe Ashlee’s phone is so smart that it can be propped up six feet away and take a photo when Ashlee moistens her lips and does her “I’m sultry” pose.

Thanks to Karen Moy and the Interwebs, I learned that Bella Hadid (who is mot a hand model) was voted “Model of the Year” in 2016 by industry professionals for Models.com (when she was nineteen — eesh), and that BuzzFeed reports that she was “snapped removing Zayn Malik’s hand from Gigi Hadid’s butt” a few days ago. (Gigi, also a model, is Bella’s sister.)

“Not,” not “mot” — all this breaking news before 8 a.m. is tough on my bleary eyes.

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"Car Shopping With Eve And Saul".


(So futile for KM to name-check a Gen Z B-lister in this strip. Does she think she's going to attract a new generation of readers, or, even more ludicrous, lend some kind of credibility to her "abilities"?)

I wonder how old Ashlee is. I know Drew is "not yet 40," but that seems kind of ancient for someone still aspiring to be a model. I'm thinking maybe she's 14?

"Do you take photos too, Ashlee?"

[Reader thought balloon: "Uh, everybody takes photos, dimwit."]

"I take selfies."

[RTB: "Self-absorbed much?"]

"I'll show you my Instagram page. I wish I had more followers."

[RTB: "Maybe you should post pictures of birds."]

"The plan is I'm gonna be a model."

[RTB: "So the plan is to sling hash here at Good Grub in the Boonies Diner until a talent scout happens to pop in? Or does the plan involve marrying a doctor so you can afford a professional portfolio and a house in Beverly Hills?"]

"You certainly have the looks to be one!"

[RTB: "Hubba hubba, she's the bomb!"]

I thought the same thing, Wanders. Up until today, I'd thought Ashlee was supposed to be around 30. And aren't young, aspiring models typically shaped more like this Bella Hadid person than Jayne Mansfield? Of course, June is drawing Drew to look more like 20 than 40. Confusing.

I have to say that I'm a little disappointed at June's lack of imagination. Wouldn't it have been much more fun to have Ashlee discretely showing her phone to Drew in Panel 1 and then a close-up of his eyes bugging out of his head in Panel 2? Sort of like Bill the Cat?

I notice from Wikipedia that Bella Hadid started modeling when she was 16, so it's possible Ashlee is still in high school. Yikes, Drew! This story could actually get more interesting, in a child-bride sort of way. Perhaps Mary will show up at GoodGrub Diner with her Alpine walking stick, toting gear for rapelling up Half Dome at Yosemite and save Drew's reputation. OK, that last bit about Mary rapelling probably won't happen, but she could put in an unscheduled appearance...

Well, if Ashlee is really only 16 or 17, I'm not gonna blame Jeff for having a conniption fit. "Jail bait" Ashlee would be a legitimate concern, after all. Oh, no one cares about Drew's medical license, of course. But think of The Clinic!

She might be getting a very early start on being a mature model.

She wasn’t caught this morning, if you know what I mean.
