Can we just start with the punching now? Please?

Holy Moly, we’re back in the locker room again. I, for one, think I have had more than my fill of looking at towel clad teenage boys, but if that’s your thing, Gil Thorp is really delivering for you in this storyline…

In case you missed it, or somehow forgot over the course of yesterday’s strip where we were briefly, mercifully not exposed to this, it turns out that Wynn is a bit obsessive about his sister (and her dancing – have we made it clear that she dances? – because she totally does or did before instantly transitioning into a point guard) and how she is the focus of attention of approximately 5,000 horny youtube viewers.

I know this isn’t Mark Trail, but can we at least skip over Wynn talking about protecting his sister’s chastity for the umpteenth time and move on to him hunting down anyone who’s been in contact with her over the last few weeks (including, possibly Mia)?

Is it just one town that does the themed heckling? Goshen, maybe? Whichever one it is, that’s what I think I really want to see… A big ‘dancing’ themed heckling of Wendy causing Wynn to go Ron Artest on them… (skip ahead to about the 1:45 mark if you just want the melee in the stands)

On that note, please remember that this is the season of peace and all of that other crap.

  2. In the 2nd panel, is Guy #35 looking into a magic mirror that’s going all cloudy before it reveals who the fairest of them all is?

  3. If they aren’t going to show us what Wendy did, at least tell us. Being a “good dancer” wouldn’t get the boys all excited, unless it was like a strip tease act. Maybe the Wileys don’t actually attend St. Fabian’s.

  4. On themed heckling: Goshen was the school that heckled Elmer Vargas for being Mexican, North Bend is where Ted Pearse was heckled for being homeless (with such delights as “at least I have a mailbox”).

  5. […] may have made one or two jokes about Mia’s strong interest in watching Wendy Wiley’s wardrobe whackiness. However, now […]

  6. […] It reminds me of the folded towels that can sometimes be spotted on the top of the lockers in the Milford locker room. Maybe it’s a sad cookie jar. When I was a kid, our refrigerator was out in the open like […]
