Thoroughly Obnoxious Knox

Filed under: Milford Idiots, Pantheon of Mysterious Objects — nedryerson @ 9:48 am


Welcome to the Foley Law Group, a law firm occupying a 1100 square foot bungalow which was the former residence of Grandma Foley (who retired to Charleston rather hastily a few years back).  The Foley Law Group employs temporary, part time (when it’s raining)  help in the person of jerkwad shortstop, Knox Foley. If you fell on your ass in a parking lot, the Foley Law Group is singularly suited to handle your claim for damages.

Hiya Dad, what are we working on?
Well, son, I’m working on the Foley Law Group Website. It’s missing something and I can’t quite put my finger on it.
Oh man, the boss’ kid is “helping out” today.
Yeah, he’s a joy to have around, so now I guess we’ll have to work out here in the foyer. We have to talk to the old man about getting some more space, and maybe doing something about the grandma smell in here.
Tell me about it. I’m sharing office space with a bunch of Mason jars filled with unidentifiable vegetables.


  1. “He’s obnoxious, but he’s thorough!” What better slogan for a law firm?

    The thick plottens. I look forward to the case of Victim v. SpeedCo in which the outcome turns on an arcane common-law decision found by Knox during an obnoxious yet thorough LexisNexis search between halves of a Milford-New Thayer doubleheader.

  2. Correction: Knox Foley is the the jerkwad second baseman.

  3. Knox Foley is going to redefine class action.

  4. Every little early detail counts. Note that an attractive partner or paralegal or staffer– with an appealingly slit skirt– notes from the edge that Knox is an asshole. This is not promising, at least for Knox. And perhaps not for the gas purchaser who took the Speedy wipeout.

  5. Here’s the connection to the guy falling at the gas station. I’m sure he will wind up at Milford in some capacity.

  6. Panel 3 is on the side of the house where it isn’t raining. In fact, very bright sunshine is causing the shading effect.
    It’s like the frequently seen dueling scars.

  7. Yes, Rob. Will “The Foley Group” be bringing suit against SpeedyCo or defending them? My guess is that Ka-nocks Foley will not bring distinction to the firm in either case, and that this will be part of some major disruption to the baseball season. Perhaps the blimp who took the fall will turn out to be Fowler’s Uncle Julius, for example.

  8. Fingers crossed for a “player sues Gil” storyline.

  10. […] He just wanted baby girl to come home and join/take over his practice. I mean, why should the Foley Law Group beat him to the punch? With that, Ed V. Baxendale joins the pantheon of Milford parents living […]
