In prison, a scrunchie is worth at least two packs of cigarettes

Mary Worth, 9/27/04

There are so many things to talk about in the current drug-fueled Mary Worth storyline that I’ve neglected one of the funniest: Mr. “My very own meth lab”‘s hairstyle. Subdivided We Stand has noted Tommy’s hair’s waxing and waning, but the little ponytail brings everything to a whole new level of hilarity.

Incidentally, it’s nice to know that Tommy actually speaks his internal monologue aloud while he’s alone. All that thought-ballooning must get tiring.

    Clearly Mary Worth is a David Beckham fan. That’s just about the right year for the ridiculous hairstyle that obviously inspired this.

    My theory is that it’s impossible to have a silent internal thought balloon when you’re tweaked out on meth. Everything Tommy wants to quietly think to himself is getting vocalized at normal speaking levels, and everything he plans to speak out loud is going to get blasted at wall-rattling volume, Mark Trail style.

    Which come to think of it raises a lot of questions about Mark Trail, but also explains his superhuman endurance and punching ability.
