    Oh, yeah, right, it was the PURSE she was looking at and not its contents (the rolls and crackers). Yeah, she was really gonna steal it.

    Go to an all you can eat place and take crackers and rolls? Stupid. Take good stuff. meat items and such. Be sure to eat the items with bones there, so they’ll see the bones on your plates.

    God forbid that the little girl is a Joy-in-training! If so, she’s observing the Mistress of the Universe in action and her tools.
    Or she will have the scariest story of all to tell her grandchildren.
    Simpson, just how do you know all these intricate details? Just asking.

    My mother used to put tin foil in her purse. I guess I’m not much unlike the Pennys. That’s why I loved this strip.

    Oh, I don’t want to think she’s a young Joy-in-training…
    let’s hope she’s just fascinated by the incomprehensible sight of a large, loud woman with big blonde hair, a sky-high plate of potatoes and sweets, and a purse right on the table, stuffed with even more starchy filler.

    Her mother has always taught her to take polite portions, eat her vegetables, and leave dessert for after dinner.

    When she sees a couple blatantly breaking every rule….
    well… her innocent eyes were glued in horror on the sideshow freaks, till she suddenly remembered her manners….
    something that never happens to Joy.

    BTW Marg is off…um…. decompressing again…

    Yesterday’s strip was too much for her, the poor dear…
    and I’m afraid it led to a bit of overindulgence in our own product….

    or perhaps in ..

    No, please, forget I said anything…
    but we ARE all friends here…. right?

    That reminds me… still plenty of Brain Bleach Chews in yesterdays forum, if you need a couple…

    Just walk one block back in that direction
    and go in and help yourself.

    My husband puts crackers, rolls and paper napkins in his coat pocket. I have to worry about the stuff getting crushed. lol

    “Little Girl” did not grab JOY’s purse…. because she can get all that stuff from the Buffet…. ! ! !

    Kind of coinicidental that Mardi Gras is over and Lent has started and Marg is “off” on another adventure?

    I see the Penny’s whenever I go to a Buffet (which is rarely). That’s also one reason I rarely go to a lot of Buffets.

    We go to certain buffets One you have to pay extra for the crab legs ( though still auce) because some people Penny’s maybe ? take a lot more than they can eat and throw the rest away. Can’t take it with you and can’t be put back in the buffet either. Maybe the help gets them?

    Bonus! I found three piggies in this one. Not too hard of course….

    Noone mentioned Joy’s “Prada” bag. I must admit to having one of those phonies that my daughter brought me from a trip to China (I think – One of those tourist traps, anyway). At least she remembered that I like red. The leather and construction are so obviously not quality, but name is stamped in it. As a leather worker myself (among everything else) I know good construction. I made a pair of red kidskin shoes with my heraldry in them.

    Isn’t it?
    I mean, kind of….um…. coincidental.

    It’s also coincidental that so many coincidences seem to occur….
    you know…

    But Marg is my business partner, and I trust her.
    If she says she’s just taking a little “break” … well, gosh darn it…. she’s taking a little “break!”

    (Hmmm…. I seem to be having a slight punctuation problem on my keyboard…
    just be a dear, please, and ignore any errant…uh…. apostrophes and … oh, say, quotation marks, would you? Thanks.)
