Fry Like Bacon!

January 10, 2015


Well whaddaya know. Bobby Howry’s antics did not cross the line into technical foul territory.  Bit of a letdown, innit?

A hirsute Referee Major Tony Nelson makes the call that will send Max Bacon to the line once he regains consciousness. Then again, maybe Maxwell is a freshman and is submitting to a hazing.*

Bacon can not only score and dish; he can cause a total solar eclipse. The resulting chaos in the Lewistown gym leads to a Milford victory.









*What, another Dazed and Confused reference from teenchy? Guy needs to get out more often.



  1. Worst free throw ever! Doesn’t look like the ball even brushed the outside of the net. Combined with the bizarre depiction of the basketball as solid black makes panel 3 a contender for the TWIM Hall of Fame.

  2. That “bizarre depiction” of the basketball is actually the masterstroke of craftmanship! Let us all mark the day that Whigham joined the pantheon of perfect-circle-drawing legends, alongside such storied artists as Giotto and Overwijk.

  3. Maxwell looks unconscious in P1. How did he so quickly jump up and shoot a foul shot?

  4. Maybe he wasn’t physically able to shoot free throw. Depending on rules In a given state, maybe the team manager has to come out and shoot. Which is why panel 3 depicts an air ball. We’ll probably never know . It’s left to the imagination.

  5. Looks to me like that bacon is pretty floppy…. Amirite? Uh, hello? Is this thing on?

    Dang it, I’m gonna have to go back to the woodshed and keep on working on these terrible bacon jokes…

  6. What if…Marjie Ducey is actually…Jeannie!

  7. Since when do you shoot free throws on a charging call? It’s simply a change of possession, unless you’re playing by Milford Rules!

  8. Excellent point. Maybe they went over the allowable fouls per have so it’s a penalty shot or maybe just Milford rules. More likely.

  9. Very floppy.

  10. David is right. Even in a bonus situation there are no free throws on an offensive foul.

  11. That’s no basketball in panel 3 — it’s a rare Total Eclipse of the Jack Elrod Circle.

  12. Y’know what’s crazy weird? On the main page, the video is for Bacon Pancakes, which has nothing to do with hazing or Dazed and Confused. So I clicked to add a comment, and on this page, the video is magically Dazed and Confused!
    Crazy weird.

  13. David & Rick–are y’all sure that no free throws on an offensive foul??? Is that at HS or all levels or what???

  14. g2design, well done. Believe it or not I am a member of the perfect circle club too. I have often thought Giotto would be pissed if he knew that 700 years later, more people know that story than know his paintings.

  15. I don’t know Giotto’s paintings or even the circle thingy, but I loved his work in “Pinocchio.”

  16. […] seven little blobs over the number 32 on his dark jersey.  Next panel Maxwell Bacon (who’s already been established as wearing number 1) is wearing a white uniform and is being guarded by a player in dark with seven […]
