Just look who is desperately trying to be relevant and up-to-date… Mary Worth, the lamest, least-excusable “comic strip” in newspaper history.
Did you see her jumping the shark Sunday? I’ve meant to mention it ever since…
Mary Worth, fretting about Twitter. What next?
By the way, I don’t mean to mock ACTUAL older folks who are befuddled by new media. And indeed, younger folks getting lost in a virtual world, at a time when their brains are still forming (teens, early 20s) at the expense of their ability to function in the analog one is a legitimate concern.
But I’ve got a long-standing beef with Mary. As a newspaper editor, I have wanted so many times to replace that nothing-happens strip with something decent, perhaps something actually amusing — only to get turned back by Mary’s loyal fans, drat them.
Oh, but just to show I’m not entirely snide, and can show some human concern for a fictitious character, even one who has occupied space that I have wished for decades was better used…
Is Mary about to fall off that stool and break something? Or is the panel just badly drawn, with distorted perspective?
Look out, Mary!
