This Week in Milford

Hustling Back to Sit Some More

Filed under: baseball, Boredom in Milford, Coach Kaz, freak hands, Gil Thorp — jasbeattie @ 10:31 pm




Two days of nothing much happening in Milford, plus plenty else to do in real life equals three comics to post at once! Besides Chump Dumbo finding Bill’s phone in the crapper, there’s a whole lot of nothing here anyway. So with this new found potential, what do you think El Chumpo will do? And will it drag out into July? Discuss.



  1. Mmmm, cell phone on a bathroom floor. Lick it, Shep!

    I do have to give Neal Rubin a bit of credit for actually tying together the boys’ and girls’ storylines. He doesn’t usually bother trying; he just lets them fizzle out. Of course, I’m probably speaking too soon… a fizzle remains our most likely fate.

  2. Panel one: we’re treated to a visit by Gil’s Freak hand, showing the guys that if this happens again, a prostate exam will be next. Also in panel one: why is there a girl on the boy’s baseball team?

    Penel three: What is the purpose of Shemp Dumbo posing like this as he finds the cell phone?

    Now that he sees Molly in her cardboard bikini,I suspect more youtube hijinks. Molly will be shamed, Bill Hawkins will be the bejesus out of Shemp and we can finally start the summer ‘o crazy. (I hope.)

  3. In 6-11 panel #2 why are Kaz and Robb Laurie playing patty-cake? In panel #3 Kaz tells Shemp to hurry back so he can get his turn playing patty-cake! Sheep-boy Shemp is such a dumbass thinking Kaz will let him sit on the bench without playing patty-cake. (Is Milford in Montana, where the men are men, women are scarce and the sheep run very fast? Run Sheep-Boy Shemp, Run!)

    DAMMIT THERE IS NO PATTY-CAKE IN BASEBALL KAZ! Damn Kaz, you go from the glory of punching out creepy guys who prey on women to b eing a creep who plays patty-cake with teen-age boys? Is Kaz also on shower patrol? Kind of creepy Kaz, you need to get your ass in church and get those pedophile demons exercised from you!

  4. I meant to say “beat” the bejesus out of Shemp. Too early, folks.

  5. Rump Gumbo will do ABSPLUTELY NOTHING…. As he prepares to upload the Diet Coke Bikini on the internet… he remembers the Immortal Words of the Great Gil Thorp at the Chicken and Lemonade Run Party.. “THE NEXT PLAYER ON MY TEAM WHO PUBLICLY HUMILIATES SOMEONE, WILL NOT BE A PLAYER ON MY TEAM! …. and this to shall pass uneventfully into this great night!

  6. So apparently Bill Hawkins is deaf, and all this time I thought it made you go blind. Can you imagine the noise that phone made hitting that tile floor in the echo chamber of a locker room? And the first thing ol’ Shep thinks of upon spotting the phone is “That’s got potential”. What kind of sick f&^$ are we dealing with here?

  7. 6/11, panel 3 – Who’s head is he going to hit? Gil’s head has already been hit, and it’s probably not Kaz’s. Dang it, I’m all in suspense here. Who’s going to be the victim of the next video head hitting prank?

    Comment by another Josh — June 12, 2009 @ 9:23 am

  8. He’s hitting a “had” all right, but not the head on his shoulders, if ya know what I mean.

    Comment by Regina — June 12, 2009 @ 9:51 am

  9. I mean head…damn, today’s not my day! I think I need to get some of Gil’s “lemonade”.

    Comment by Regina — June 12, 2009 @ 9:52 am

  10. After posting the cardboard bikini on Facebook or MySpace or whatever, Molly gets humiliated.

    … BUT the girls all band together and they all don cardboard bikinis in support, starting the a new — admittedly redneck — fashion craze!

    Which is actually less moronic than when they all decided to have their heads shaved in unison.

  11. Gee Regina… its just something about the way you say “HEAD”! :0

    Comment by el lumpbo — June 12, 2009 @ 10:24 am

  12. so bill had his phone in the crapper…with the pic of molly wearing a cardboard bikini displayed. hope shep wiped the spooge off the phone before picking it up

  13. 6/11- panel 2- the gayest “high ten” in the history of life.

    Comment by gwilo — June 12, 2009 @ 2:40 pm

  14. Patty cake, patty cake, baker man! Make me a Nut Boy as fast as you can!

    Regina! See you at PUB!

    Comment by Don, the Rebel without a Blog — June 12, 2009 @ 3:48 pm

  15. Nutboys — they’re shitty!

    Comment by Gil'sBarber — June 12, 2009 @ 4:52 pm

  16. Sexting…child pornography charges…Gil Thorp actually referring to a current news topic?


    Comment by Bryan — June 12, 2009 @ 5:21 pm

  17. 6/11 panel one: I realize this is a visual comic with freak hands and cardboard swimsuits, but “I’ll be reeking soon” is the line of the month IMO.

    Comment by lawrence — June 12, 2009 @ 5:37 pm

  18. #9 Regina: You mean Gil’s “Kool-Aid.”

    Hustle back, people, I’ll start reeking again soon.

  19. Boy, looks like Shep is ready to unzip and relieve himself right on the phone. He’s sure standing a ways from the urinal. Was wondering what “the head” meant. Now I know – odd slang for the bathroom. Why does Bill need his phone at the game anyway?? Another of the many signs of a distracted team that Gil coaches.

    Comment by Rob — June 12, 2009 @ 7:07 pm

  20. Rob — “The head” is a decidedly old-fashioned slang term for the bathroom. Nautical in origin. Roughly contemporaneous with “Gents,” as a matter of fact. Nothing likely to come out of a 21st Century teenager’s mouth, for sure.

    Comment by johnw — June 13, 2009 @ 12:01 am

  21. Or a 20th-Century for that matter. I never used it.

    Comment by Rob — June 13, 2009 @ 10:06 am

  22. Well in the 6/13 strip the fun begins. That prankster Shemp Dumbo forwarded the stupid cardboard bikini pictures from Bill’s phone to all of Western civilization. Straight Arrow Bill will no doubt will become more of a social outcast after being set up. It will probable take as long as the infamous Nut Boy case to figure out the real culprit is Shemp, a “professional” a**hole.

  23. “The head” is the only way to refer to the bathroom in the Marine Corps, especially on Parris Island………but I’m thinkin’ that Shep wasn’t in the Corps…….

    Comment by knoxy — June 13, 2009 @ 3:42 pm

  24. sigh – is there any way the character of Shep can die a horrible death? This is getting old. Maybe he can stalk Mary Worth and then drive off a cliff drunk.

    Comment by Rembrandt36 — June 14, 2009 @ 7:53 am

  25. Oh please– Shep in the Marines?? He wouldnt last a day. The only head he’d see is his rolling after his release.
