Big Bad John

So my first Friday post has Gil unraveling the mystery of why John doesnt speak. Looks like he was in a similar accident that the Mudlarks were in; but obviously the police in Johns area weren’t nearly as quick to the scene as the Milford police. 3 days in the snow would make anyone speechless. Meanwhile the football season rolls on into December as usual. Playoffs, anyone?



  1. I’ve been thinking that John wasn’t in the car with his parents.
    The real issue is will the cops not file charges if Gil can get John and the Walthers to not sue for the unnecessary tazing.

  2. as a former mental health professional i can say that some electro-convulsive therapy would probably do john a world of good.

  3. Gil:”It was too late for his parents, he’d eaten both of them. Hasn’t said a word since.”
    Cop:”Because he was traumatized?”
    Gil:”No, because a wolf gnawed on his vocal cords”

  4. I think a striptease by our friend in her cardboard bikini will get the young lad talking and hollerin’.

  5. This changes everything. Young John Pascoe now has the Appropriate Patina of Grief required by all tragic heroes, and now we Know the Shape of His Tragic Flaw. The right thing to happen now is that he becomes an EMT, and comes upon car crashes routinely. He performs admirably, never speaking a word until the dramatic crisis, when he could have saved a young boy and his parents who are trapped in a car If Had Only Spoken Up. They die because of his tragic flaw–that’s straight out of Sophocles, people! He then wanders off in to the desert, where there is no one to rescue from a snow bank, and in the end his dog is killed by a snake. (Everyone hates snakes.)

  6. I have a vision of John asking “are we there yet?” for three days straight until, with his dying breath, John’s father shouts: “Will you just be quiet?!”

  7. With conference losses to Jefferson, Goshen, and Madison, the playoff/playdown ship has definitely sailed. Not that any of us were expecting a postseason appearance, right?

  8. “What’s that? Playoffs? Don’t talk about playoffs? You kidding me? Playoffs? I just hope we can win a game! Another game!”

  9. […] in the fall arc thus far. Where are Macy’s parents? Is he gonna have a similar backstory to Silent John Pascoe? Will it make Chance’s grandparents his equivalent to Aunt May and Uncle Ben? Will he get […]
