This Week in Milford

March Comes In Like A Magic Peacock

Filed under: Coach Kaz, Gil Thorp, Milford Idiots, What the hell is going on here? — nedryerson @ 4:31 am



We have no choice but to watch Rubin and Whigham play out the string on the magical peacock. Gil will be Gil, which means that weak, last minute gestures will always trump planning, attentiveness and timely interventions.

We’re sorry for the lack of comedy bits, we’re taking a page out of the Gil Thorp Guide To Effective Leadership:

“When life gives you lemons, slice ’em up and get out the tequila.”



  1. Gil, Steve Irwin’s estate called and they want his shirt back.

  2. Looks like “gents” – Andrew Gregory’s favorite form of address – has become part of the Milford dialect.

    Also, why does Gil need to wear his whistle around while sitting in his office drinking coffee?

    Finally, nice work Gil on not even bothering to check in on your team 10 feet away, but just sending Kaz to do it for you. That handle of Banker’s Club gin doesn’t drink itself!

  3. This strip is a remarkable sinkhole of stupidity. Lame story? Check. Diminishing reader interest? Check. Syndicate residuals for Rubin and Whigham. Oh-ho, double-check!

  4. True. Scott never said the peacock was special magic. He thought it was his dead brother. Just because some stranger claims it’s his, doesn’t mean it isn’t Jay-bird.
    If the peacock shows up, what’s Scott supposed to do – prove it isn’t his brother? Killing and eating it might convince some of these fools.

  5. I can’t blame Gil for not drinking the water in Milford in favor of anything distilled and high proof. The deleterious effects on these morons from whatever has tainted it would have me heading straight for the hooch too.

  6. Vultures circling this dying plot in p3 3/1.

  7. Vultures for sure – looking to eat Peacocks. Yikes, Gil and Kaz are drinking more than usual.
    But hey, they get paid anyway.

  8. and #5 Tim, you got that right about drinking the “water” in Milford.

    but at least you keep your job

  9. There’s only one way to salvage this preposterous plot — Coach Shaw in a peacock costume! Who’s with me?

  10. Coach Shaw in a peacock costume? I’m in. Peacock, pissant, who knows…
