Well, Dale was right in the comments yesterday. As unlikely as I had thought it would be that kids born just before the turn of the century would be making callouts to Our Gang, that’s apparently exactly what just happened yesterday. I’m not sure that this really counts as ‘learning something new every day’ but I’ll file it under that category for now.

Oh hey, 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 what purposes, we can only guess. (My guess: this is probably the last we see of Saad for another two months…)

Finally, somewhat upending the old phrase ‘takes one to know one’, we see that Knox and company have mis-underestimated True’s character. But who could blame them? If I lived in Milford (as opposed to commuting there weekly), I’d probably just go into every personal interaction ready for them to be jerks.

Bonus points:

Gotta love those tiny cans everyone has. Are they Red Bull as suggested by Teenchy or tiny Perrier cans?

If True’s hair gets any more voluminous, I may have to nominate him for the pantheon. Let’s keep a close eye on this going forward.



  1. Looks to me like everyone is holding unopened canisters of Pillsbury crescent rolls.

    Nice Popeye shirt Tip. I think that’s Tip.

  2. Is that Tip, or Knox Foley? Either way, he’s heir (hair?) apparent to the old Coack Kaz Heat Miser ‘do. He’s your Pantheon nominee.

    Saad, meanwhile, is channeling Better Off Dead-era John Cusack.

  3. I think they’re all holding those fake “mixed nut” cans with the springy snakes inside. Fun times!

    As for Saad, I was thinking mid-career Sean Penn.

  4. Cinnamon rolls, man. Cinnamon rolls.
    And as Saad rides off into the sunset, having fulfilled his plot advancing duty like Don Stebbins, I’m reminded of Ari Folman in Waltz With Bashir.

  5. Time for you to roll out? I thought you were a pocket passer.
    Well, that didnt work.

    And whats he mean by Not yet, I shouldnt.? Is he not ready to be Jarrods, or anyones, quarterback yet? Is he not yet ready to be here with Jarrod? So he can be his quarterback but not party/bond with him? WHEN?? Yeesh. And its October 22 for gods sake. My world is in WEEK 9 of the season. Hey gang, the playoffs start in 9 days! Wake up out there Milford! Anyone hear me!?

  6. Same thing we’ve all been saying all along– this is a slow plot! I think it’s because Whigrub chose to stretch it over two seasons, but the pace is now such that we really DO wonder how much longer it can take for True to take the wheel and for Jethro to fall into line. Is True giving him some slack by not being at the party at the same time, or is this a snub? Inquiring minds want to know. But football season runs until St Tibb’s Eve anyway, so we have time.
