The Winkerbean-ization Proceeds Apace

First Lucky and now Amy is falling into the seemingly bottomless pit of depression. I have to imagine that Shelby and Nisha and Janni and Paul and Wendy and Jack and Knox and John Pascoe and just about every other character in this strip is working through so many layers of emotional trauma that it’s a miracle they even get onto the field.

So, kudos – I guess – to the Coaches Thorp who have demonstrated few redeeming qualities as coaches other than an apparent ability to motivate all of these sad sacks to go out for varsity. On that bleak note, I think I’ll go enjoy the rest of this potentially very rainy weekend.

Here’s hoping the sun is shining whereever you might be spending the day today!

Update: Procedes != Proceeds Also, probably no post from me on Monday… still settling into this weekly travel to Milford deal…



  1. Between our collective thoughts re conservation of karma in the Thorpiverse and that sweet clip of my favorite Beatle and his friends (thanks for that!), I’m left tempted to ponder the tenets of Hinduism. However, since the sun is shining here I’d best do that while mowing the lawn.

    A W’s a W so don’t overthink it. Enjoy your Saturday!

  2. I don’t know– I keep hearing “Wally and Bitsy” echoes. Lucky has been the big dope all this time, laughing off misfortune and finding the silver lining, until suddenly his misplay ruins a major achievement for a teammate. Different story, suddenly– it’s not about him. And Amy has been preoccupied with the simple notion of getting to play: now she finds that what she thought she wanted most– to contribute to winning games– does not begin to dispel her concern over Lucky.

    GT is not always stupid plots about geeky teenagers who want to play lawyer, or wrestling legends who entertain us for a summer. Sometimes it’s about kids learning it can be hard to grow up.
