Shelby, Don’t Let Me See You Without A Cruller!

Filed under: basketball, exposition comics, freak hands, Mimi Thorp — nedryerson @ 2:29 pm


Here it is, the moment we’ve all been waiting for, the revelation of the trouble that haunts Scott Fowler. Ugh, Jay-Bird?! What happened to Jay-Bird? Was he sent to the camp with the Thorp kids? Mauled by Jaxon the chimp boy at day care? It was Pennywise the Clown, wasn’t it?!

Also, nice pointing.


Aw shit, a dead kid. That’s just fucking great. The timing is bad, but ultimately not the fault of Rubin and Whigham. They will however be fully responsible for whatever acts they are about to perpetrate to teach us all about grief in a sensitive and respectful manner. (And not the leukemia? And not the leukemia. Really?! Help us.)

Please, give us a b-plot that we can do something with.


This is perfect. Bulk up, Shelby. Until then, we’ll use other options to set screens. Maybe we can recruit Bathsheba Butt (of the famous Butt Sisters). I hear she sets a mean screen.



  1. What? No commentary about the apparent head explosion that Scott and Jay-Bird seem to share? I’d like to imagine that Jay-Bird died on Halloween, while trick or treating as JFK (immediately after the third shot), and Scott wears his hair the same way, as a memorial.

  2. Waitasec, did we just meet Mia Meeks?

  3. Oh yeah, Mia Meeks. I didn’t make the connection. Doyle Dane was said to have the hots for Mia Meeks. Is this a clue that Doyle be involved in this story? Would that be a good thing?

  4. Jay-Bird, he loved to hear the Rubin go “tweet, tweet, tweet”…

  5. Well, here’s to the beginning of a new, completely unsatisfactory plotline. Hronk!

  6. 5. Dood: In accord; it won’t be just the winter winds that will blow this season.

    12/18 P2: It appears that all that ‘exercising’ with the pool boy has Mimi looking ripped!

  7. In one strip Mimi has done more coaching than Gil over the last three years.

  8. 12/15 p1: “using two hands is fine, Mom, but I swear we need a table to arm wrestle.”

  10. Hey – its a recycled panel!! Never saw that before. At least Marjie never gets recycled.

  11. Well! It’s regional shout-out time once again as the Mfnrd Mudlarks come to Syracuse! In the 12/24 strip, the boys play Corcoran and the girls Nottingham. Henninger, Bishop Ludden, and Christian Brothers are probably not far behind, but I’m betting we will still not see any hyphenated central schools. Tough luck for Jamesville-DeWitt and Fayetteville-Manlius.
