This Week in Milford

Skinny Legs And All

Filed under: Gil Thorp, Mimi Thorp, What the hell is going on here? — nedryerson @ 5:33 am


Alright! Lame midnight basketball at the Mfnrd Rec! Let’s practice the move where I bounce pass the ball right up into your face.

Enough about that, somebody call the fire department, the Thorps are so toasted on Two Buck Chuck that they don’t even notice the raging inferno in the living room. There’s something so soothing about bargain wine, his and hers tiny clipboards and vintage legwarmers that even the most dire emergency takes a back seat to relaxing time.

What about Shelby Hunter? Last we saw she was bulking up down at the endless potato bar at the Golden Corral.


“Blah blah 6 foot Shelby. Do you smell something burning?”

Here’s some coaching to tide you over for a while.

We’re not sure what happened over at GoComics today where these images are stolen from, but the Gil Thorp feed is stuck on 1/17. So the update will be delayed until they fix that. Oh yeah, we forgot to mention that the ol’ Nedster needs a break and will be away from the comic blogosphere for a spell so TWIM readers can contemplate this post for awhile. Keep feeding your hilariousness into the comments and blogging will resume sometime around 1/29.



  1. Hope the detox goes well, Ned. Say “hi” to Gil for us!

  2. “All I heard was 6 feet tall,” said Gil, a dreamy leer spreading across his face.

  3. so we’re down to the 3rd string? I raised my hand a long time ago to do this, but like Marc Trestman, never got the call.

  4. 1/18 is up – I’ve noticed the players are too worried about their stats again – ‘1 for 6 shooting? Thats a disaster!’

    Never gonna win thinking like that, sister!

  6. 1/20: “I need to meet the peacock!” OK, how many days away are we from Marjie asking questions about the peacock & Marty Moon making comments about the peacock & fans in the stands (including Pat & the most interesting couple in Milford) waving signs about the peacock? I give it two weeks max. HRAAK!

  7. I want to see fans of teams playing Milford dressing like peacocks. If they can dress like hobos, they can do this for me!

  8. So the New Year begins with Gil & Mimi finally being damned to the inferno’s of Hell for their many transgressions.

  9. So whats gonna happen first – the next blog post or a peacock sighting? I vote blog post.

  10. 1/24: they’ve seen the peacock! Will fowl boy and his sidekick, the bricklayer (so named due to her inability to make a basket) have good shooting nights tonight? Will the rest of the teams become peacock-obsessed? Will that peacock get hit by a car (drunk Gil behind the wheel?) and almost cost the teams their post-season chances? Will Ned actually return to blogging, or has he moved to Charlotte with Mr. Baskt?

  12. Since the admin of this website is working, no question very quickly it will be
    famous, due to its feature contents.
