“True, Boo. Boo, True.”

So Rubin finally gets around to making the joke TWIM readers (and, probably, everyone else who reads this strip) made about ten months ago when Art Standish was introduced. This time, we can assume that it’s the bespectacled girl to Addison Radley’s right being referred to as “False.”

That Rubin’s getting around to making the True/False joke only now requires less suspension of disbelief than the notion that Boo doesn’t know who True is. After all, just yesterday we were expected to believe that her first pitching appearance in the strip was “typical.” More likely she knows who he is but has never been introduced to him – which begs the question: Just how big is Milford High anyway?

Is the girl sitting across from Miss Radley Amy Lange? She must’ve forgotten to apply her freckles today. She does that sometimes, y’know. Kinda like how Boo forgot to apply her tooth gap this morning. Wonder if Amy’s still Luck(e)y Haskins’ girl? Me, I’m just waiting for Amy to make the introduction in today’s post title, not unlike a certain soon-to-be-retired person did twenty years ago.



  1. Boo’s on first, True’s on second, I don’t know’s on third…

  4. That girl sitting next to Boo looks like she was made up by a mortician.

  5. I note the wry smile on Boo. It almost makes up for her rudeness in mocking True’s name. (Warming up for the onslaught– True, Boo, phoo, ooh…)

  6. I see from Panel 1 that Boo suffers from a condition known as EHBC (Extra High Butt Crack).
