Time is getting away from the team here at TWIM, so here is as much random crap as we can throw at you 25 loyal readers:
Are those bootleg DVDs back there behind Terry Gallagher’s?
In case you’re wondering about the license plate, this isn’t the first MST 3K shoutout in Gil Thorp. The previous appearance of the license plate was on a totally different car, but to be fair, we couldn’t see the whole plate last time, so…oh my what a boring line of blogging. suffice to say, we are seeing Terry Gallagher getting drawn into football in some way.
Let’s recap: how can Terry get involved in football? What skills might he possess that will get him out onto the gridiron. We’ll put that on hold and focus on some odd language. What’s odder, the exotic foreign expression of Terry Gallagher: “Grand” or the home grown weirdness of Milford speak: “Buckos”?
Check out panel 3. Here’s one of the pitfalls of coloring this strip: Is that supposed to be Stefan Harvey’s hand or Chip Visci’s?
Is there another word to describe the Gallaghers’ accent other than “adorable”? Who are these two girls anyway? Just random Bucketheads who are a Milford Greek chorus singing the praises of Terry, announcing his hotness as perceived by Milford girls in general. Perhaps he has no sports skills, but will be taking ‘em to the Bucket with regularity.
His first victim just might be his new pal Chip’s girlfriend Cyndy Canty, brand new Grandma and world’s biggest Roger Daltry fan. She’s eying that adorable Irishman like a plate of peanut butter cookies!
