I Don’t Have Time For This Today

Sorry folks. There’s too much comedy gold in panel two for me to mine, much less refine, into the smooth adult contemporary comics snark that is all the rage these days to really do the job properly tonight.

Apropos of nothing whatsoever, I’ve had this song in my head the last few days so, in a moment of self indulgence, I will post it to the blog.



  1. Panel 2: Are we going to start calling Gil “Lefty”?

  2. Well, when you’re an elbow bender like Gil eventually it has to get amputated. He’s really digging the handicapped parking placard.

  3. So we spend a couple days establishing a female character, and now it’s back to DA BOYZ.

  4. And while this is going on, Radley steals Gil’s car, right? I have no idea where this is going.

    Gil with serious Steve Garvey hair in Panel 2, which makes it all the more hilarious.

  5. Well, if Mr. & Mrs. Guardian are anything like their ward, it promises to be a one-sided conversation. Maybe Gil will simply make articulatory gestures with his elbow.

  6. Am I imagining things, or does the thought bubble over Gil’s head in P-3 read “Oh, SHIT, not Costello!”

    Not remembering that name, for some reason. Billy?

    That same Panel 3 may be a candidate for “mysterious objects.” A door-like glassed panel with a placard marked WAP 131…

  7. I’m drawing a blank: Do we know Troy Costello beyond being a football lineman? Maybe Milford baseball will forfeit every game; with Gil forcing his multi-sport athletes to prepare to defend their title, only the Luck(e)y few will turn out for baseball anyway.

    My guess: John Pascoe has been invited to try out for the role of The Chief in the Milford Little Theatre’s production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

  8. My first instinct was that John Pascoe might have been offered financial aid to play football for Gallaudet, but he is not deaf or hard of hearing but instead functionally mute. So I guess we wait to find out.

  9. This seems to be a disjointed story line. What is the connection with the last two days of the strip?

  10. Looking forward to Marjie Ducey and Boo Radley in the same strip. That pair beats a royal flush.
