This Week in Milford

Edit-Yer-Own Comix Fun!

Carl Peake Neal Rubin sabotaged Kemper’s opponents another summer? Why?”
“Half a dozen reasons tee times, all of them ridiculous early…”
“He has twice the potential blood alcohol level of these other kids cartoonists. He just needs to break through quit writing this strip so that someone who has the potential to make it less crappy can take over.”
“How would you know about potential?”
“You clearly have no idea what golf  is supposed to be never read Marmaduke!”

(For more edit-yer-own comix, check out this summer o’ 2008 edition!)


Hey look: Carl Peake has just completed the first-ever one-day full-body genital exchange: He’s gone from total dick to complete pussy in just 24 hours!


  1. I get the feeling that if Peake moves, the grid on his shirt stays where it is. The shirt is a kind of dimensional window revealing the grid that underlies three-dimensional reality such that wherever Peake is, his shirt reveals that particular sector of the Grid. As he moves, the shirt flows along the Grid.

  2. Hear this, too. Wow! While not in the same level as Ease Up, Friend. Hear This, Too will not be forgotten.

    Hear this, too. Football starts Monday.

    Lame way to wrap up a lame plot.

  3. Carl’s sunglasses are like the opposite of Clark Kent’s glasses. With his sunglasses he’s mr. take no prisoners toughguy. Without them he’s a fifty year old Steve Luhm.

    Hear this too, I’m pregnant, but I’m not sure if the baby belongs to Chris Stiles or Kemper.

  4. The basic issue has nothing to do with golf. The real problem is Carl’s inability to cover up cheating. How does he survive in the financial world?

  5. OMG, Jason, yer right: another potential summer o’ crazy ruined. Carl Freake went from Robert Duvall in The Great Santini to Elmer Fudd in one fell swoop. What a douche.

    The jumping into the flashback in the first panel confused me. I thought Major Dad butted into Gil’s and Wilford’s conversation. And anyway, what would Gil know about potential? He’s a lazy dick.

    Also, when did Carl Peake turn into Abbott and Costello’s landlord, Mr. Fields in panel two of the second strip?

  6. And wasn’t Gil suppose to be teaching golf? What the hell happened to that plot?

  7. Gil: You have no idea what golf is supposed to be! It’s about strikes, spares and beer frames!

  8. Inquiring minds want to know:

    1) What happens to Kaz during the summer? Does Milford HS pay him enough as an (intentional wrong abbreviation) to spend his summers elsewhere?

    2) How can I apply for a job there?

    3) Yes Regina, what DID happen to that plot? Gil is so damn lucky that when he “teaches” something, the students already know it.

    4) Repeat No. 2.

  9. Crapster the hobo baseball-player from last summer had better show up as a freshman at Milford this year!

    What is more boring than playing golf? Watching golf on TV. (And I repeat this as a golfer)
    But what is more boring than watching golf on TV? Reading a comic strip about teenaged country club golfers!

    I’m sure that Gil will be running the MCC tennis camp next summer, or maybe coaching the swim team. Hey Rubin: you clearly have no idea what a Gil Thorp comic is supposed to be! Have you heard that a lot lately?!?

  10. And with that, Neal Rubin wipes the dust from his hands, merrily walking away from the ruins of yet another imploded plotline, saying to himself, “There, I fixed it!”

  12. Great snarkin’ Jason! Hear this too – the golf ‘story’ defied gravity. It sucked.
