This Week in Milford

My Brother The Phasianid

We can deal with Scott Fowler later. Lets look at Marjie Ducie’s funky accessories: wrestling shoes, ankle socks and a big funky ass handbag that looks like the one Ruth Buzzi used to slap Arte Johnson with on Laugh-in (or the Milford Star couldn’t spring for a digital recorder and makes her haul around an old fashion reel to reel tape recorder with a shoulder strap.)


“Your leading scored – Scott Fowler. Will you autograph my toilet paper square, leading scorer Scott Fowler?”

“I know I’ve told you about the peacock and I told you ’bout the swans, that they live in the park.”
“What’s that, Boo?”
“Oh, nothing. Hey watch out! You might step in some fresh peacock news.”
“What the hell are you talking about?”
“Sorry, I just think that the peacock is my brother Jay-bird, who used to HRAAK a lot, climb trees and shit on parked cars.”


So, Fowler genuinely feels this way? Okaaaay. Let’s enjoy the weird lighting and inside the car perspective reminiscent of Mary Worth and Dr. Jeff driving home from the Bum Boat.



  1. I called it!

  2. In real life, I’m not sure what people with the last name “Fowler” avoid more… bird puns or basketball. Actually, I’m surprised Rubin has gone this long without making a Fowler/fouler pun.

    The 1/5 strip was titled “Rawlings Present’s Rubin and Whigham’s Gil Thorp Powered By Adidas” in my newspaper.

  5. How many 60s reference can you put into one post? And dang, now you’ve got that song running through my head! “Then I told you ’bout our kid: now he’s married to Mabel….”

  6. 1/5 P2: MH #3 just hollered to Marjie D that MH #54 wants her to shout into HIS microphone. Fight, fight!
    Margie can’t watch the Mufnrd Mudlarks sober. The big funky ass handbag is a mini cooler.

  7. So, the story has gone exactly where I feared it would. See you in the spring.

  9. Maybe that’s not weird lighting in the car. It could be someone in the back seat doing shadow puppets on their faces or they could be driving home from the same tattoo parlor where Mike Tyson got his face done.

  10. I’m not digging this new Marjie look. At all. Bring back hot Marjie! With the raspberry beret!

  11. Yes, I’m out for now. But not before saying I agree that Marjie suddenly looks like a total frump. Is she auditioning for the initial Adrienne role in a remake of “Rocky?” Mufnrd needs someone who looks like they’re from the present decade.

  12. This could be entertaining if Rubin takes it to the limit: Scott Fowler becomes more and more obsessed with the peacock, eventually moving it into his room and calling it “Jay-Bird”… holding long, whispered conversations with “Jay-Bird”…demanding that his parents set a place at the table for “Jay-Bird”… and all the while, Gil saying “Eh, who cares if he’s going nuts, he’s our leading scorer.”

    Good thing Scott’s dead brother wasn’t nicknamed “Wolverine” or “Bengal Tiger.”
