Let’s Eat Carrots Together?

Oh! My! God! this storyline is so crap. I hate Parker Bowen. The insanity (or inanity?) of the tattoo/bootleg DVD joint is not paying off. So in lieu of trying to come up with more dumb jokes, here are some video selections “inspired by” these insipid strips.


It’s Madison time!:


Who cares. I don’t care. A horse’s ass is better than yours.


Circus boy. Happy nightmares, everybody!



  1. I’d like to see how Ransom’s finances work.
    Assume all his clients/customers come from Milford HS (3000 sound too large?).
    If 1/4 of them spend $30 each, he grosses $22,500.

    $30 was the cost of a minimal tattoo. I suppose it would cover several DVD’s.
    Where do kids get $30? Working back to when I was in high school, it would have been $7-8 which I definitely didn’t have.

    Ransom needs to keep the tattoo business legit because it’s the cover for the DVD business. He could sell DVD’s to younger kids, but they’re more likely to squeal if they get caught.

  2. 3000 is way too high… doesn’t matter. How many are over 18? Sure, Parker is 34, but he’s the exception. From what we’ve seen, about 6 people have gone down under. That’s counting Parkers’ return trip. From the look on Linburgers’ face this new tat is off the scope. 1.) Where do they get all this disposable income? 2.) Do they ALL have a high pain threshold? As far as the DVDs go, if this was 10 years ago this plot might fly, but with $5 bins in most stores, why not buy the real deal? The big question is, where are the Gildo kids, and is Mr. Baskt ever coming back?

  3. So maybe we’re switching from an Afterschool Special about DVD piracy to an Afterschool Special about manic-depression. Hella mood swing there, Parker. One little confrontation about tattoos and you go into a week-long tailspin.

    Speakin’ of which, if Parker has been this distracted all week, wouldn’t Gil have maybe noticed it in practice and done something about it before it cost Milford a game? Oh, I forgot: that would require Gil to (a) attend practice and (b) care.

  4. Is the guy in the first panel of the first strip doing a Dracula imperosonation?

    In panel two of the first strip: Did Cully Vale join the Madison team? It wouldn’t shock me that he’s 24 years old and still in High School. And the arrow that says “Loc” pointing at Mr. Dreadlock’s head. Is he Tone Loc in disguise? Funky Cold Medina!

    Gil: “Don’t just say it! Let me see it!”

    “Parker Lewis Is a Loser” Bowen: “Just say it Coach, don’t spray it! And geez, ever hear of mouth wash?”

    BTW, what’s going on with “shadow boy” in the first panel of the second strip? Is he doing the YMCA dance while trying to catch the ball? He better not be dancing on a table while tat slapping. That’s reserved for me, Jules and Vaganova!

    What the hell is going on with Ranson in that second panel of the third strip…is he gving some poor “Shelia” a gynocological exam?

    I’m hoping that Parker got one of those old timey tattoos of a battleship on his chest. But then, I bet he got something unimaginative like a huge M or a huge basketball.

    Good lord, look at the expression of Lips Magee standing behind Leenee.

  6. “Coach wants to see how much I care about basketball? Fine! I’m getting Coach Thorp’s face tattooed on one cheek, and a basketball on the other! He can try to bench me, but I won’t be able to sit down for a week – so there!”

  7. “You’ve been sleepwalking for a week, Parker. It’s like you suddenly don’t care!”

    So Parker not only looks like Gil, he’s beginning to act like him as well.

  8. Cant count on this site anymore for daily updates, so always go to other site first.

    Comment by Rob — February 6, 2012 @ 7:20 pm

  9. Ease up, Rob! The last guy to complain about the frequency of updates got outed as a member of Congress!

    Now I’d have to consult with Regina and Jules on this, but would you feel better if we included you in the upcoming topless drunken coffee table dance? As far as I know I’ve never seen your work in the studio, but you have to be better than that dork Regina pointed out in 2/3 panel 1.

    Comment by vaganova — February 6, 2012 @ 8:13 pm

  10. Yeah, ease up. Rob! And if vaganova’s invitation isn’t enough to make you feel better, I’ll offer you a case of Nut Boys! They’re shitty! Check it! Count it! Bonk! HRONK! FOOZLE!

  11. Or maybe you’d rather have a copy of “20th Century Masters: The Millenium Collection – The Best of Gail Martin!” She’s the rock and roll Carole King!

    Comment by Don, the Rebel without a Blog — February 7, 2012 @ 12:38 am

  12. I was right! Douchey Parker got a douchey basketball tattoo! Maybe Jules is right about the Gil tat lol

    Comment by Regina — February 7, 2012 @ 5:09 am

  13. If Ransom was selling bootleg Buick parts, Hobart would’ve shut him down by now.

  14. Dadgummit Regina, you’re freakin’ psychic!!! Bravissimo! OK, so what’s a share of Apple gonna do tomorrow?
    On the downstroke, maybe the day you can actually predict a Rubin plot is the day your hubby needs to take you for treatment…

  15. SemperFi, I know you are a jarhead, which means you are first of all a rifleman, but you’re also deeply perceptive, thus I am shocked you have only now realized Regina is psychic. Jules suggested the other day that Cully Vale might be a good bouncer for our dance party, but a Marine who can deter anything with a deft move (and no tree limb) would be far more effective. A great time and no need to get a tattoo by the skanks at Milford Ink– what do you say?

    Comment by vaganova — February 7, 2012 @ 6:15 pm

  16. Ok, you can include me – I wont drink too much, however..

    So today we have Mudlark Pride as a tattoo; guess he aint going to college either. Lotta good that would do at Harvard. And Thorp approved it – but when? Before or after?

    Comment by Rob — February 7, 2012 @ 7:16 pm

  17. Count me in vaganova, thanks for the invite. Boring digression: while serving my company actually got pulled for riot duty in Washington DC once. Jarred awake at 1AM on a Friday night and sent up in trucks. Luckily we were for backup if needed and we spent the weekend outside the beltway. You guyz’s ‘artistic expression’ will get the crowd pretty fired up, I’m sure. I’m still a bit concerned somebody will slip me something and I’ll wake up behind Marty Moon’s shack with ‘M’ tattoos in unspeakable places.

  18. SemperFi, I can speak only for myself but suspect Jules and Regina share my partier’s instincts (“What’s that vehicle doing inside our perimeter?”) and encourage you to feel safe that your Mudlark buddies will cover your six and not allow you to come to harm.

    Comment by vaganova — February 7, 2012 @ 8:29 pm

  19. […] mind all that – it’s not just the weekend, it’s Madison […]
