If Bobby Howry hasn’t landed himself into the Milford Pantheon of Pretentious Douchebags already, these two strips should seal the deal. On Friday, lumpy straight man Theo gets the brush-off at lunch as Bobby dazzles Lysol with his post-game analysis (I guess; we don’t see what he’s sayin’) then gets an earful of Knox Foley-speak at the lockers.

Bobby’s attitude in today’s strip could theoretically (see what I did there?) be an example of the “save it for marriage” trope that’s an underlying tenet of the strip Luann, but the raw egotism behind his rationale launches him into the douchebag stratosphere. Mixed messages in the thought balloon, however (which run counter to any ideas that his character is modeled on Ted Allen). He would be well served to watch a movie in his downtime.

No time for that now: Bobby’s got to fend off Max Bacon, who’s still itching for a hit of Adderall.

metapost: I didn’t see a 2/6 post so I’ve posted two days’ strips for sake of continuity. I’ll be on the road next Saturday so I’ve asked one of my fellow bloggers to step into my place in the rotation.


  1. uber-douche! B-How is now U-Dou in my book.

    Waiting to see how he will get his comeuppance. I still think some duct tape and a locker room will be involved.

  2. Booby be nuts, but he’s clearly redeemable.
    Max Bacon, tho, ehh. I’ve only read this strip for about 2 years – Do they have total loosers?
