For THERE ARE NO WORDS

Could there be a more appalling end to a "For Better or For Worse" storyline than this one, even though we all saw it coming?

Blech. Barf. Aaack. Gag.

Yes, men who get married and force their unwilling wives to have children against their will and grow nasty porn mustaches are Prince Charmings beyond compare. Just nasty. I'd rather read about Grandpa Jim's struggles with speech therapy or April's "friend" Shan...non... than one more day of this.

I feel like I'm watching something so embarrassing and awkward on tv that I have to turn away. . . ugh. Not that we all didn't see it coming, but really? She has no other choices so ends up with Gross Granthony? Stupid.

...not to mention his wailing, "I have no H-O-O-O-M-E!" after Liz had been physically assaulted. If she goes for that, no wonder the folks in Mtig called her "white goose." Ick.

I KNOW. RAAAGE.

I'm saddened... FBOFW has now become predictable! I think it's safe to say the strip has jumped the shark.

Janet said...

You know, it's a good thing the strip is ending sometime soon, because I really couldn't stand to read monthly letters from Anthony over at fbofw.com.

Kristi said...

Today's strip (Friday) also creeped me out - how long has Julia been standing there watching them?

Claudia said...

I was actually waiting for you to make this post. I just don't get it at all. What does she know about Anthony that she didn't know before? Why is he suddenly so terribly perfect? It's just so re-damn-diculous. Also love how there's no mention At All of his daughter and how she's going to factor in or whether Liz has even considered that for a hot second.

Sorry folks but I love the fact that Liz and Anthony are ending up together. There. I said it and I'm GLAD I said it. :->

Ginger said...

How LONG is this wedding anyway?

Thank you for writing that, I agree completely.

Also? It doesn't even seem like Lynn Johnston's heart is in it. She just sort of slapped them together. Even crappy romantic comedies have more realistic lead-up than this.

Sean said...

Maybe it's the champagne? She's not as drunk as her "escort" but tosted enough that Anthony seems like a good idea?

Yeah...Not buying it either. It's like Liz is the Titanic and she's heading straight for a overly needy iceberg.

It's such a lovely feeling to know you're not alone in loathing the Liz-Anthony love thang. I just found your expression of disgust via another blog, also appropriately kvetching about this.

(My favorite line from the blog that led me here? "And Anthony’s mustache? That %$@%*&ing mustache has to GO. Now. It makes him look like a fluffer on the set of a Jeff Stryker film, cus god knows a foob like Granthony isn’t the star of anything." Made me laugh like an idiot.)

Where's a good helicopter pilot when you need one? Couldn't they use some tired ER plot device and drop Warren's helicopter on Anthony, a la the death of Rocket Romano?
