This Week in Milford

Where Did The Weekend Go?

Filed under: Boredom in Milford, Coach Kaz, Gil Thorp — nedryerson @ 7:56 pm



Sorry everyone, the weekend totally got away from me. I already went full on with the  lesbo theme last week so I’ll leave the first strip alone. That brings us to the latest illustration of Gil and Kaz not giving a shit, which…is pretty much not new ground. Oh well, I give up. Wake me up when the stupid benefit concert starts.



  1. Ned, you’re oblivious! Bonk! HRONK! Ping!

  2. Now that the Bottom Dollar has closed , Cortez will have some new recruits.

  3. Cortez looks like he’s about 50 in frame 3 of the 6/4/11 strip. WTF?

    On another note, oddly enough, this is one of the few times that Gil Thorp is less ham handed than the real life situation they are portraying…

  4. I probably missed it before but is Coach Gloryhole is using her Elon varsity stickball broom handle, or is that supposed to be a really long fungo bat?

  5. Cortez looks like a very tall Larry “Bud” Melman.

    Love the giant shoe in panel 2! It missed Kaz and Gil by that much, darnit.

  6. Looks like Alpaca’s hitting Fushigi balls with her fungo bat.

  7. “Boys are oblivious” says Gil, as he and Kaz relax in their office while their pensions are savaged and their colleagues get laid off. Oblivious indeed. Pot, meet kettle.

    Hey, look: Al-Jo’s shirt is an homage to another of her feminist heroes — Cathy!

  8. Looks to me the coach is blind. Hers eyes are closed. She is using her cane to hit fly ball practice.

  9. Gil has been “oblivious” for years.

    I’m waiting for Al Jolson to say like the old Blues Guy in “In Living Color” I wrote a song about layoffs…like to hear it? Okay, here it goes.”

  10. […] stop caring about the welfare of others, like the so-called protagonist of the strip does! Since  boys are so oblivious they don’t need any guidance, and girls, well that’s Mimi’s problem to ignore, […]
