  1. It’s been a banner year, and god willing, 2008 will be even more insane and coked-up.

  2. Awwww… good times !

  3. This is tougher to vote on than Presidential elections! Looking back at all those, it’s amazing how Rubin & McLaughlin could be so consistently insane.

  4. This is going to be a real bitch. What a mother lode of horror.

  5. I won’t be sleeping tonite. I’m going to be haunted by all these images…

  6. Hear that Mooch.

    But ya gotta love it — no where but here!!!

  7. By the way, I’m kinda disappointed that Elf Boy Boyd didn’t make the Style of Milford Division. The remaining candidates are strong contenders, but the disheveled hair and ripped up t-shirt will always live on on my heart.

  8. Oh god, looking at this page tonight made me suddenly realize something. Milford is in the same world that Thunderbirds is. That is to say that everyone in this strip are clearly marionettes. It explains everything. Everything.

  9. *0 votes so far. Didn’t realize this place was that popular. You’re a success, Jason!

    Comment by Ennui Willie Keeler — January 8, 2008 @ 6:18 am

  10. *0=80

    I guess that I was trying to capitalize the 8. That’s what I get for posting before coffee.

    Comment by Ennui Willie Keeler — January 8, 2008 @ 6:19 am

  11. That’s OK, Ennui, because in MilfordWorld it makes perfect sense that 0=80.

  12. I cannot in good conscious support “Kaz punches drunken lout” in the Ridiculous Violence Catagory because, if anyhing, is the most un-diculous thing I saw in the Thorpeverse this year.

    Comment by ry — January 8, 2008 @ 9:03 am

  13. Wow, if people are horrified now, just wait until “Worst Panel” voting begins…Though I suppose when I put all this craziness in the same post it starts to melt people’s brains a bit. I guess that’s why they normally spread it all out over an entire year.

    Comment by jasbeattie — January 8, 2008 @ 11:33 am

  14. Wait, this was BEST? Dear God, I got it all wrong… NOOOOOOO!

  15. The Wacky-Ass Quotes Division is really a tough call. Each of these panels is uniquely fantastic:

    “Lock your eyes on one hole, get set, and swing. And keep doing it.” – Classic Gil Thorp. Confusing, meaningless, and yet supposed to be significant to the character development of Clambake as a great coach.

    “Ease up friend” – most quotable.

    “I want you to kill Marty Moon.” – the first time Gil Thorp ever made me actually laugh.

  16. It is really a hard choice for me to make, but I gotta vote for baldie Brynna, ostensibly the most beautiful humanoid McLaughlin has ever portrayed.

    Comment by Red Greenback — January 8, 2008 @ 7:02 pm

  17. I love your blog. Especially this week, when it has especially made no sense. Thanks for letting us vote. Nice to see we all pretty much agree.

    Comment by Rainbird — January 9, 2008 @ 7:20 pm

  18. The best part of the vote was seeing Gail Martin twice! It’s like I was holding up a lighter or something. Or maybe the drugs are kicking in…

    Comment by rodent — January 9, 2008 @ 7:24 pm

  19. Well, I’m a Gailiac thru and thru, and do truly believe that Kaz impaling someone on his forearm is truly the wackiest violence presented, but I have to admit, its hard to argue with a motherf*cker clubbing his elvis ass self in the back of the head with a stick. I mean, on PAPER, it is the most insane. On PAPER.

    Comment by Joel — January 10, 2008 @ 2:25 am

  20. One vote for Kaz’s massive, hairy forearms coming in front of him from who knows where. And apparently taking a few heads off on the way
