Kübler-Ross for dummies (and drunks)

You know what one of the problems of working for the Man is? You can’t tell the Man, “Oh, I’m sorry, I know I said I’d be available to write a bunch of Webcast scripts on short notice, but I don’t think you understand just how wacky Mary Worth is right now.”

Stupid Man.

Anyway, without further ado, I present to you: Mary Worth’s five stages of grief.

1. Startlement

2. Weepiness

(Wait a minute, he gave them to her … on their wedding night? Ew! I mean … ew! Must … not … visualize … Mary Worth’s … wedding night…)

3. “If I can’t see it, maybe it won’t be true”

4. Rage

(John Voight is Mary Worth!)

5. Blank-eyed numbness

And of course, there’s the corollary: Rita’s five stages of keeping her drunk ass from being thrown out on the street.

1. Drunkeness

2. Drunken slack-jawed incomprehension

3. Drunken self-justification

(Whew! Thank God you’re all right. We were worried there for a minute.)

4. Drunken begging for forgiveness

5. Drunken eagerness to please

Where’s denial in all this, you may ask? Well, over in Mark Trail, we’re learning that denial ain’t just a river in the Lost Forest:

Boy, I can’t see anything going wrong in this scenario. You know, there’s an awful lot of Mark Trail-ian sins I’ll be able to forgive if this storyline ends with El Presidente here gone completely mad, foaming at the mouth and lashing out insanely with inhuman strength at anyone with the misfortune to cross his path. It’ll be just like the end of Their Eyes Were Watching God — though there won’t be any black people, this being Mark Trail and all. Actually, I suppose his lackey’s scheming wife might beat the doomed lunatic to death with an oar or something, saving everybody and clearing the way to that suburban split-level ranch for the evil couple. It would be the perfect crime! Except for all the biting.

    I must say, I had confused MW’s blank eyed numbness as asking for a sign from above that it would be o.k. to snuff this alcoholic leech, thereby relieving MW of any guilt. It was a Sign From Above, after all.

    Your “five stages” were great, Josh!

    I’m wondering about Mary’s expression in that last panel – what is she thinking? “My GOD, I had no idea one person could give off so many fumes!” “Get this lush OFF of me!” “I’ve just realized I’m strangely attracted to this poor, driven soul…”

    He gave them to her on their wedding NIGHT…

    Perhaps the swans were actually some bizarre Asian marital aid that Mary gave to her to help “relieve the tension” of being a stinkin’ drunk. And now – now! – with the swans gone, all that Mary can give her friend is an excellently manicured hand. Notice in panel 5 her look of “Oh, let’s just get this over with” like I’ve had with countless sexual partners.

    Roy Marcus Cohn (February 20, 1927 – August 2, 1986) was an American lawyer who came to prominence during the investigations by Senator Joseph McCarthy into Communism in the government and especially during the Army-McCarthy Hearings. While widely unpopular during his lifetime, he nonetheless wielded tremendous political power at times.

Those stiff, pained expressions may have looked out of place on 1965 Batman comics but they perfectly suit the post-modern weirdness that is Mary Worth. You go, Joe!)

    Josh – GREAT analysis of the Five Stages…and MW does look scarily like Jon Voight.

    Has anyone noticed that Mary is wearing a special chemically-treated nightie that changes color based on her mental state (think “mood ring”)?

    At the startlement phase, it’s pink.

    For “I can’t see it” and “rage”, it’s become a more intense fuchsia.

    And, finally, at “blank-eyed numbness”, it’s a calming shade of terra-cotta.

    What color will it be when MW goes postal on Rita?

    Hey Sassy, thanks for joining the anti-Gord crusade. It bugs me that no one in Pattersonville (technically, “Millborough”) will say a negative word about this scheming greasemonkey – even though he’s buying up the WHOLE DAMN TOWN! WalMart has nothing on t his guy…where’s his competition? Why are the townspeople allowing this unsightly sprawl? What’s next, “Gordo’s Mall of Ontario”? I’m sorry, Lynn, but there’s always been something creepy about this paunchy manchild who considers all automobiles to be FE MALE (“She’s a great set o’ wheels, Dr. P! Take ‘er for a spin!” “Well I’m sorry, Gord, but I had my heart set on a BOY car.” And what about Gord’s poor wife? We always wondered what she saw in him – she was kind of a hottie once, but now after 5 years of relentless breeding and garage food – beef jerky and pork rinds – she looks as bad as he does. No good can come of this burgeoning empire…it’s bound to end like Jett Rink in “Giant”, pathetic and drunk Gordo tipping over the table in his deserted “Gord on Mayes Day” banquet hall after a clumsy attempt at seducing April – when all along we knew it was “Mrs. P” he really wanted.

    Dan, re your comment (#11) – “What’s ‘drunkeness’?” Good eyes again on your part. (s/b “drunkenness”) Is a drunkeness a female drunk, like a baroness is the wife of a baron?

    On a different note, I see that Anthony (of Anthony and Therese) is popping back into the spotlight. He’s shown in panel five of today’s FBorFW carrying his little one, Francoise, in one of those baby slings. Where’s Therese, you might ask? Presumably she’s out partying it up while her unappreciated (and probably verbally abused) hubby does the domestic thing.

    It’s just that Gordon seems unworthy to have morphed into such a big player in the strip. I suppose it’s conceivable – even a little sweet – that the townspeople would throw their support and business his way, after his troubled upbringing, but he’s been pretty well off for a while now. Maybe it’s time to help out some other members of the town’s underclass – you know, Becky’s mom, the Kelpfroths, Mrs. Dingle… Plus, Gordon is just too dull of a character to be demanding such attention from us – Johnsto n could at least throw a little scandal his way… or give him a really cool hobby, like model trains – oops, that one’s taken. (Wait, I just realized something – Gordon’s dull, Mr. P is dull, Ellie, Mike, Deanna – they’re ALL dull! Either that or colorful and somewhat shady, like Kortney, or Liz’s punk galpal…Even WEED became dull, once he adopted – gad! – that ponytail!!)

    Thanks for helping me realize that hating Gordon is a good thing. By sucking up to Pattersons, even used car dealers get a saintly patina by association. Contrarywise, Anthony, by spurning Lizzy, is now cursed to be the most hen-packed emasculated wuss on the comics page. Until Gordon “fixes” Therese’s brakes and she dies in an unfortunate car crash (probably on her way to an assignation with Eric the Cheating Scumbag), Lizzie will never be able to redeem poor Tony.

And wasn’t it mentioned somewhere that she didn’t want to have a baby, but he did? To me that came off as him pushing/forcing her into having a baby. And after you’ve made a woman lug a thing in her abdomen for 9 months and then be in labor, you know what, don’t expect her to stay home with it as well. You’re gonna get a little retaliation.

    Glad I’m not the only one who thinks Mina is a twit. Admittedly, I came into this storyline about the time of the Bandar medicine incident, so I don’t know how she acted before Phanty-baby separated her from her compadres. But ever since she saw the first bad-guy statue in that catacomb, she has acted like a spoiled child. You know, the ones who expect everthing to go their way and whine when it doesn’t. “Oh, boo hoo, I was going to find a race of super men, and instead I found a bunch of lowlifes.” I thought she looked old enough to know that you don’t always get what you ask for, but the longer this one spins out, the younger she acts.

    Sure Rita is a clumsy lush, but who brought out the sacred swans to begin with? If they are/were that derned important, wouldn’t ya think Mary would have a good place to store them? She is always having lushes over for coq au vin, meth heads running through the house, even Dr. Jeff probably has thought about smashing the dime store trinket so Mary should have kept them locked in the china closet where you could see and not touch.

    Therese didn’t want to marry Anthony or have his child. But she had to cover up the fact that she was carrying Gord’s bun in her oven by marrying somebody. Gord knows this, so he’s overly concerned with how good a “father” Anthony is. I’m not sure what Liz’s role is going to be here, but I have a pretty strong feeling that she’s going to get knocked up by Gord too, and she’ll have no one to marry to cover it up. Mike will find out that one of his buddies — sure wasn’t Lawrence — impregrated his little sis, and he’ll be forced to murder both Gordon and Weed. That should really spice things up in Whatever-the-hell-that-place-is-called (I don’t want to scroll up and find it).
