This Week in Milford

Wait. What?

November 11, 2014


Guys, I think Whigrub is employing some strategery here as there is simply too much weirdness going on in today’s strip for me to focus on any single aspect of it properly. That said, here goes:

Panel one: So, Jarrod isn’t burning True, but is instead whining about getting more playing time. Which, doesn’t make any sense? Isn’t Jarrod now playing wide receiver in addition to being the backup QB? Whatever, it is interesting that Gil has an XKCD cast poster framed on his office wall.

Panel two: OK, this came up in comments but seriously, what the heck do these guys teach? Perhaps, Kaz’s scribblings on the whiteboard can illuminate this for us. Here are my best guesses:


Hmmm, nope. I am afraid I can’t crack The Kazinski Code here no matter how I try to parse that daunting cryptological conundrum up there on the board.

Panel three? Wait. What? OK. I’m done here.



  1. The narrative leaps and bounds do threaten to leave us behind (as usual). But I think what’s going on is that Jarrod has to choose between starting at wide receiver and being the backup QB. And he’s choosing the former, having been reformed by the love of a good man. So now the coaches need to find a new backup QB. Too bad they never actually said so.

    Apparently Kaz teaches geography, or “joggerfee” as he might put it. Which makes me fear for the future of Milford’s schoolchildren, since he seems to think that the countries in Patagonia include Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and “Pereguay.” (Forgot Uruguay, champ.)

    Which is a shame, since the real Patagonia is entirely located within Argentina and Chile.

  3. JSW has it, Kaz, originally an in-house substitute, later became a thoroughly terrible geography teacher.

    Kaz, as a matter of fact, minored in geography at the University of Northern Colorado.

  4. Man, my brother spent a semester in Greeley. Then he decided that life should have meaning and ought to be enjoyed and transferred somewhere else. Not commenting on Northern Colorado so much, but geeze the one time I visited him out there left me in no rush to return to that city. So many cows…

  5. Thinking that either the mystery name on the whiteboard is “Peru” and that Kaz teaches either geography or Latin American history, or else he is venting by writing down descriptions of Jarrod– brash, petulant, argumentative, childish…

    In any case, we are being set up by Kaz’s ticking down the depth chart. Is he saying that if Jethro does not want to be the backup, there are two other players who could probably step in tomorrow?

  6. Woop– Billy already settled the question of what Kaz teaches. But I’ll stick with either “Peru” or “pissed.”
