Hey, remember the other day in the comments when I couldn’t be bothered to remember Tipp’s name? You do? Good, because if there’s one area where this strip has you covered, it is making sure you know the names of all the goofy characters. Why, we even get somewhat reacquainted with that lovable mute, John Pascoe. Not letting his PSTD induced silence keep him down, it turns out that he and Tipp aren’t just about punking bullies, but now have some sort of workout/bodybuilding thing going on now. I guess that makes about as much sense as anything. I wonder if dedicated gymnast/occasional cheerleader and even less occasional vaulting tailback Tipp has seen the light and is now full time on the football team… Regardless, I’ll be interested to see where they go with this plot about Saad’s rapid muscle gain combined with his inability to grow proper facial hair.

Sorry for the paucity of links but, as I mentioned, I got very little time for this today.



  1. So John Pascoe and Tipp Nunn are dealing steroids and HGH? Is that the plot we’re getting this year?

  2. Looks like Saad has plans of playing football at Miami. Miami – Dade Community College.

  3. I don’t think Saad had the facial hair until after Boone complimented him so maybe that’s his response to praise. He’s still looking kinda like Adam Sandler in The Waterboy to me.

  4. i know I’m literal-minded and need to just accept the story, but while the John Pascoe-Tipp Nunn friendship always made sense, I am having trouble imagining how Pascoe can coach Saad without talking. No matter. On to the question of whether they are injecting performance-enhancing drugs. (That is a ripe area for GT, since the last drug plot involved the football captain dealing a performance-IMPAIRING substance, weed. [Hee hee hee… Oh, I’m sorry, the snap was on three? Hee hee…. This shoelace is sooo amazing…])

  5. I’ll place my wager on the “Pascoe-Nunn Roid Ring” plotline for this season.
    Just waiting until Saad launches the bench into Marty Moon’s booth in a fit of anabolic fury.

  6. Here’s a fun game – what will be the date of the annual “bonfire” strip that starts the football season?

    I’ll go with Friday, September 5th.

  7. Milfordian, I hope you are right: bring on the flying saucer field lights, the front-lit treeline, and the shadow people!

  8. […] I almost missed that True’s interlocutor in panels one and two is Saad Shamoun. You remember him, right? Who could ever forget that pulse pounding dramatic arc? Anyway, yeah, I guess Saad is back but for […]

  9. […] But where is Max going with his plea for help? Does he think Bobby’s gonna become his S&C coach too? Or just lead him to a Milford pop-up business specializing in bad tattoos pirated DVDs dietary supplements? Max needs a taste of what Silent John Pascoe and Tip Nunn were cookin’ for Saad Shamoun. […]
