This Week in Milford

July 1, 2013

Smackdown Aftermath


Now we see the extent of the damage that Pop caused in the process of kicking the crap out of the punks. Wow! Did he actually manage to flip over a table that was bolted into the floor? (See mysterious object sticking up in the air in the upper right hand corner of panel 2.)

Wait just a minute! We’re cutting back to Gil and Mimi?? The Pop and Harry situation cannot be allowed to just sit there for weeks without a tie in to whatever Gil’s about to get up to. The amount of detail and panel space (and sheer violent awesomeness) demands that Pop remain front and center. Whoever is calling the Thorps better be telling them to just stay on the porch and sip their lemonade, because they will not be the prime movers of whatever plot is about to unfold.



  1. Holy Mimi-in-a-bikini, Pops! There’s a stat for Milford Mudlark Record Book.xlsx.

    Speaking of fanservice, is it too much to ask for some sweet Marjie Ducey summer B&B (bikini and a beret) action?

  2. For me, the only questions that remain are will we see the inevitable Pops-Kaz showdown before August begins and whether or not the ensuing battle will destroy all or just most of the eastern seaboard.

  3. Did faux-Kiwi Ransom Hale flee Milford because of Gil or a visit from Pops? Did Pops box up Mr. Bakst and Fedex him to Charleston? Was Pops the chief roadie on Gail Martin’s 30 Years of One-Night Stands concert tour?

  4. Looks like a lot of gratuitous damage unless the punks didn’t have funtioning nervous systems going in.

    Milford law: If a person is under 23, has athletic potential, and gets in trouble; Gil Thorp must be notified.

  5. Judging by the sheepish grin on ol’ Pop, I’d say this ain’t the first time he’s trashed a joint. Probably been banned from all the dive bars, coffee shops, and (ahem) banks in Milford. “BOLO for ‘Pop,’ mayhem artiste extraordinaire.”

  6. “Pop, what happened?”
    “Nothing I couldn’t handle, Harry.”
    “But, we just left our rageaholics anonymous meeting five minutes ago and you’re my sponsor! WTF, Pop?”

  7. Pops (a/k/a Larry David a/k/a surf guitar legend Paul Johnson) is quite the shape shifter. He dropped 30 pounds before the beatdown and put them back on once it was over.

    I’m calling Pops has a military background not unlike Gil. Maybe they can bond over Parris Island training tales while knocking back “lemonade” at a MMA match. Oorah!
