You open up your heart and the truth comes out.

Bravo to everyone who thought Bobby was really giving Max aspirin or something harmless and making him “Think” it was a real drug that would help him play better. You were right on the nose – the placebo effect in full display for a month here at TWIM! Love how Bobby cant wait to reveal it either – ‘ even better’ and we then have another hidden fight in front of Gil (I have a hard time believing Max has the gall to do this in front of Gil; why not wait till nobodys around in a hallway sometime later?)

Bobbys so proud for not only figuring a safe way for Max to play better, but also making Leisl believe he knows when Max is gonna play well. But when she hears about this, that one will dry up, and he’ll need his more diverse side to show up to keep her in good graces. Maybe Max has time to go after her to spite him before this storyline runs out but I doubt it.

Gil told the parents, we’ll see what difference that makes, but I think its a panel-filler at best.



  1. small town high school environment. don’t ask, don’t tell will work here… the only people who will know what a schmuck Max is will be the folks Max tells … Bobby won’t squeal or else… being small vs an angry jock will not end well…

  2. In my region, both would be in jeopardy of expulsion from school. But this is Mfnrd. I cannot wait to see Lysol’s reaction– it will be right up there with Kaz decking that guy at the concert… I see Robmize’s plot idea of having Lysol take up with Max, but it ain’t gonna happen. Max thought he was doping, and that, on top of the fact he is a knucklehead to begin with, means she would not touch him with a forked stick.

  3. Max is a first class moron. Bobby made an ass out of him and his only reaction is to resort to physical action.

  4. Well, those of us who believed that Bobby was playing the placebo effect for all it was worth can all shuffle over to the payout window to collect a share of our collective 2 cents.

    Bring on the next season and the sleeveless softball jerseys…

  5. As I don’t usually look at the colorized version of the strip, I find Gil’s orange teeth in P1 surprising. Has he been chewing aspirin, or is he a beaver?

  6. ^^ Mouthguard, maybe? Or else he’s doing that orange-peel smile schtick.

    Wait, YES. That’s it. He’s got a stash of booze-injected oranges, Errol Flynn-style.
