This Week in Milford

September 30, 2012

Another Week, Another Eh

9/24/12

Not sure, but it looks like Terry Gallagher is calling Chip Visci a huge pussy.

9/25/12

Not sure, but it looks like Stefan Harvey is offering Terry Gallagher some crack.

9/26/12

Not sure, but it looks like Terry Gallagher’s gonna text his Dad and tell him not to wait up.

9/27/12

Not sure, but Doyle Dane might just be the stupidest new character in a long time. To what end does one high school student “market” another high school student? It doesn’t matter. This “plot point” need not make sense as it has zero potential for any payoff, except maybe some jokey thing where Doyle Dane gets stuck with a bunch of Irish Dude t-shirts with ridiculous puns on them.

9/28/12

Not sure, but it looks like that psychotic kid brought his inflatable sex doll to the Ballard game (and Jamarr Gaddis is in attendance again).

9/29/12

Not sure, but  I think Coach Shaw is getting shortchanged on again! Maybe he needs some marketing help from Doyle Dane to increase his visibility in the ultra competitive face time landscape.

 

In interesting comments to old posts news, a comment was left on the post featuring Molly Kinsella and her cardboard underwear by Mkins, who states that she is the real Molly Kinsella and the inspiration for Milford’s Molly Kinsella:

Coming across this strip is too funny. I actually am the Molly Kinsella that this character was based off of and, while I haven’t followed where the strip went, Rubin did actually spot a picture of me in a carboard box outfit (not a swimsuit tho…) on facebook! I had posted it because it was funny. I WAS being “silly” with some college friends for a dorm event and we had to construct silly outfits from cardboard for an event. Nothing creepy, nothing weird, no alcohol (or caffeine even as I recall), just a funny and fun time with friends. It wasn’t even too racy, but eventually I did take the picture down because of pressure that it would interfere if employers saw it (which I’m sure it would have!). Thanks for the fun reads on this page though, too funny that a real, random event from my life became a strip in Gil Thorp! loved all the strips growing up!!! And I did play basketball in high school! :)

Thanks for stopping by mkins. Feel free to share your picture and let us decide if it’s weird or creepy. C’mon, no employer is gonna find it here!

  1. Wait until Doyle’s imaginary girlfriend and Irish Spring start getting it on – the negative publicity will start — yawn.

    9/28 p1: more completely recycled artwork! I am just too lazy to look up the original publication date. That’s what Ned and Jason were probably busy doing this past week – zing! lol

    Damn, Gil, the handi-abled, army vet, volunteer coach is showing more stones than you when it comes to coaching (just like you planned, I know).

    Hey, Kaz has his own mug (9/29 p2)! Mugs are good – then they can’t see what you are drinking!

    Oh, I forgot: is the brunette on the right side of 9/26 p1 staring directly at Irish Spring’s Shillelagh? A little discretion, please, ladies!

  2. 9/27 panel 3: Is that a boom box on a picnic table or the left rear of a ’63 Ford Falcon? In either case, it’s hopelessly out of date.

    Hey, Doyle Dane, J. Walter Thompson called. He wants his Bernbach back. Says you’re Young and Rubin can.

  3. Ballard Bruins–right here in the river city, Louisville KY. Perfect night for football… I sat behind that danged “mangle milford” sign….

  4. 9/28 p1: It’s Pat! Again! Welcome back, Pat!

  5. “G’wan now, I hardly played”. Not sure, but is he Australian or Irish?

  6. I don’t know if my Irish half should be angry about the way Gallagher is being portrayed, if my Danish half should be angry about the way Doyle Dane is being portrayed, or if my American whole should be angry about this entire story line.

  7. 9/25 P2 Wonder how many $’s NR got for his product placement… Hey Neil, Massengill’s calling!
    9/28 P1 The psychotic kid should be playing for the Bruins; those huge hands could catch a lot of passes.
    9/29 P3 Gil “Don’t be grumpy, stumpy! I’m paying you what you’re worth!”

  8. Milfordian,

    Good catch on the recycling job. Believe it or not, I did try and locate the first use of that crowd image. I thought it had been in the last year or so, but I only looked at strips during football season. It turns out that that was originally basketball crowd.

    Jason named the psychotic guy Androgynous Collared-Shirt and Puffy Hair Easily Excitable Person (ACSAPHEEP).

  9. Can we get some more details about Marty’s surroundings? I want to see if he redecorated his crate.
