So sad when Mark isn’t in on the joke…

…and the joke is him…  It would seem that his obtuse-ness has survived the passing of the torch from Elrod to Allen.  For those of you new to all this, or maybe haven’t been keeping score, it’s Mark 2, really-expensive-rental-boats-paid-for-by-The Magazine zerozilch… nada.  So naturally Cherry finds this entire notion extremely funny, in a polite, tee- hee- hee way, not a rude guffaw sort of way…  but still.  Mark, perhaps you’d be better served by finding a charter or a tour that would take you there…  I have to say though, that face in panel 3 is a new one for Mark… probably because he’s never been challenged before, never had his plans actually questioned

Lets also consider Cherry.  And her neck.  Is it me, or did it get longer in panel 1?  I suppose it had to in order to fit the speech balloon underneath her chin.  But her head just seems to be perched unnaturally on top of it.  Sort of like a golf ball on a tee…

Strange too that Cherry isn’t putting up a fuss over Mark’s apparent desire to go off and “work” on their “vacation…” Perhaps that comes later…

  1. Looks like Trail neglected to shave his neck and back this morning. There’s enough hair there to weave a small blanket.

  2. I think there’s a few of us out there that remember the tv series, ‘my three sons’ from the late 60’s. Panel three could be inspired by actor Fred Macmurray. Mark seems to emulate the actor with his perplexed expression. Who is
    Mark Trails face modeled after anyway, could it be Fred??
