Now that we have the mandatory baseball roster announcement out of the way, we can turn back to the centerpiece of the spring plot, Boo Radley and her further manipulation of her parents. Fuel costs of the 2008 Jeep Compass (guilted out of Dad) have now been underwritten by guilty Mom. Well played, Boo.

Next up, Boo’s Compass needs an oil change. What will happen?



  1. Bitch on a (empty) tank move .

  2. You had one job, Whigham. One job. Readership (nedryerson) even provided a gentle reminder.

    Here’s a quick quiz: How many slots does the iconic Jeep grille have? Hint: Not an even number.

  3. A talking Jeep Compass?. This is better than Mark Trail…

  4. I do like the talking Jeep. But mostly I can’t wait to see who Boo is going to take to the cleaners in the softball plot. Wait a minute– is it a coincidence that she is alternating strips with the most dynamic character of the fall plot, True Standish? Someone Will Learn Something, of that we can be sure….

  5. Very insightful, vaganova. I’m always up for lessons learned in Gil Thorp as they always somehow manage to transform a ‘serious issue’ facing ‘kids today’ and make it absolutely ludicrous.

    Anyone else catch that dramatic removal of the eye glasses on the part of Boo’s mom? (I’ve already forgotten her name. Why oh why won’t the strip constantly remind us of everyone’s names?) Anyway, I wear eyeglasses and I wish I could remember to make dramatic gestures with them on a more regular basis.

  6. Agree, timbuys. Trying to work out some connection between eyeglass removal and cardboard bikinis. Sense this plot make may more sense than that one, which as I remember had to do with the viral risk of a photo. Kids today indeed….
