Spare Us the Cutter

We’ve been to Ricozzi’s before – just once. Nice to see Whigham remember some of the architectural details of the place. The pizza tray stand is a nice little touch, too. Rubin thinks we haven’t remembered these characters’ names, or have forgotten them out of sheer boredom.

Speaking of sheer boredom, how about this date? Did you know a lot of the time coaches don’t worry about teaching proper cutting to their players? That’d come as no surprise in Milford, where the coaches don’t show up during the season, much less worry about teaching their players anything. By evening’s end, Bobby will have molded another unpaid coach for the Thorps.


  1. Beware of high school students who willingly wear ties…

  2. Saturday has come early this week! Is it possible that Lyson is as bored as us? Likely. Well, girl, lesson learned?

    But hey! We get a profile shot of the Bobbinator, now we can obsess about the size of his nose! Poor kid, ADHD and Rhinophyma too.

  3. Ricozzi’s. For when the Bucket or the Coffee Cantina just won’t do.

  4. Or the Speedco out by the highway.

  5. Is it just me, or is Bobby looking older and older by the day? I’d put his age at 42 in panel 3.

  6. Yes, Bobby sure doesn’t look like a high school student. Still looks like a Clark Kent knock off with the glasses.

  7. With his haircut and obsessiveness, is Bobby the love child of Marty Moon and Peaches McClure?

  8. I’m still hearing Paul Farrell from A Clockwork Orange: “Could ye spare me some cutter, o my brothers?”

  9. Paul Farrell: He suffered from Rhinophyma too. Small world.

  10. True, g2design. Maybe that’s what me think of him… “In Dublin’s fair city…”

  11. I thought the same Bobby Jo. but it was nice to see his eyes instead of slits…

  12. Dood, breaking out the Peaches McClure reference… Much respect.

  13. What kind of table are they sitting at? I see a corner to Bobbys right, and what looks like half a table in front of him. Then we see darkness between him and Leisl, so where does the pizza go? To the right, or on the bitty table?
