Your COTW, without further ado!
“Is Ruby trying to kill Lu Ann with her mind? Does she not realize that it only works on folks with working brains?” –Spotts1701
And the runners up! Also very funny!
“That Mary Worth panel is fantastic out of context. ‘You’d better call the police! Because I’m high as a goddamn kite and I think I need to crush your eyeball with my thumb now.'” –Roto13
“If Reeky were packing heat, this would change the balance of power in the Slylockverse completely. What can Slylock do against an armed rat? Reprimand him to death? As it is, the only one with a weapon in that panel is Max, which should make him the more likely suspect. ‘Hand over the purse, lady, or I’ll butter knife you.’ I’m not saying it’s a winning scheme.” –stinkfoot
“Correction: Reeky Rat is the ALLEGED perpetrator of an ALMOST-robbery. He is likely the same guy who tipped Slylock off in the first place, and is now just having some fun prank calling and watching Sly. ‘There will be an attempted robbery at 5:00 at The Restaurant.’ ‘No, wait, there’s a robbery at The Other Restaurant.’ ‘Hey, Sly! At the park, there’s an anthropomorphic animal who stole an ice cream cone and is blaming a different anthropomorphic being! Come at once!’ ‘Back at The Restaurant, we have a report of a bowler-wearing yellow mouse holding his eating utensils in a most ungentlemanly manner!’ Meanwhile, Count Weirdly and Cassandra Cat are drilling into the safe at Megopolis Bank.” –hogenmogen
“Doesn’t it bother you that she’s trying to buy this boy? I mean, there’s no need to flash money about to get a handsome, well-toned young man to notice you. All you have to do is strike a nonchalant pose while munching a vaguely phallic food item in a seductive manner. They’ll come flocking to you, in their tight little Abercrombie T-shirts and snug-fitting jeans! How do I know? Uh … well … just a guess, really.” –Perky Bird
“Worst wedding dress montage scene ever! I even tried reading it while playing the Sex and The City theme music, still no good.” –Chareth Cutestory
“Yup, Derek knows a good thing when he sees it. And by ‘thing’, I mean my daughter. Also, when I say ‘it’, I still mean my daughter. My daughter is an object, is what I’m getting at here.” –bunivasal
“‘Sophie and Derek make a cute BOOBS don’t they?’ ‘Sophie says he’s BOOBS too!’ ‘You BOOBS he is!’ I have no freaking idea what the current plot in Judge Parker is.” –Bud
“You know, when you make a remark so disagreeably smug that it offends the sensibilities of Abbey Spencer, you’ve really accomplished something.” –jvwalt
“I don’t want to knock Canada, because I love the country, but I can’t even get any of my friends here in New England to go to Montréal; there is no way any of them are going to Northern Ontario to gawk at some valley where Lyndon Johnson is living in drag.” –twg
“I like how pointless it is to have anything bad ever happen to Mary Worth. She is always prepared, always knows just what to do, never needs some meddling biddy to spout platitudes at her in reassurance … all she needs is a slow-witted blond sidekick so she can tell us how wise and prepared she is without resorting to speaking out loud to herself.” –Reepicheep-chan
“Yep, Lu Ann, gotta be as tasteful as possible for Bishop Uncle-Dad.” –Lily Sincere
“As everyone in town knows Mary never gives anything but advice and the occasional ‘I told you so’ card, how did the thieves pull it off? Obviously Mary has pissed off a store clerk somewhere. I’m guessing it’s someone she drunk-dialed on 9/11.” –Spiff Bereft
