Did You Know Hamburgers Can Talk?

And read too!

I could spend hours weaving this tale of teenage flirtation to its logical conclusion but I don’t have time for it today – gotta hit the road by sunup. Let’s just say it involves Boo, True, several kids, a trailer park basement apartment, and a whole lot of regret. The girl in P1 is getting douche chills just thinking of it.

Subplot: Is True a secret Canadian? Talk amongst yourselves.

Inspiration for today’s post title:



  1. Subdivisions…

  2. True is a Cliff’s Note critic for the school newspaper. Where does he find the time?

  3. Hey, watch your back! That looks like Leisl in C1 toting that tray of a burger and a side of cheese curds.

  4. True a secret Canadian? well in panel 1 he says “eh” instead of “huh”…. Definitely a sign of Canada in his breeding…. It takes a long time after immigrating to USA to break saying “holidays” for “vacation”, and even longer to pick up “huh”….

  5. “You’re the mushiest people I ever did see. You know, I kinda lost my taste for mush.” Yep, Stymie’s right on message about this entire TrueBoo plot.

  6. I have to put myself in the minority again and say I think this plot has legs. If True can socialize Jarrod, who was not only aggressive and mouthy but slow witted and inflexible, he may be able to do the same with Boo, who is merely sarcastic and defensive. And who does not think a pisser like Boo would not be more fun that the more typically retiring Mfnrd girl we usually see? If she teaches him to control the baseball a little better, all to the good.

  7. Just like Bobby Howry, he talks with a full bite of food in his mouth.

  8. Vaganova’s got a good point. Boo’s the first female character in a while who might get some actual character rounding. Leisl was unfortunately wasted as a mere plot blip and Amy Lange’s salient point was that she’d dump drinks on you if you weren’t careful.

  9. Agree completely with FoolyRain. Amy was wasted as a foil for the blowhard ballplayer, and Leisl on Bobby Howry. But while both could resurface this season, my money’s on Boo.

  10. At first I wondered why True was shoving a hamburger up his nose when I realized… THOSE ARE NOT HIS HANDS!!! He’s about to get a burger stuffed into his cranium the hard way by a pair of oversized alien claw-appendages.

    And then I realized… the girl in panel 1 — those are HER hands! Who is this mystery girl, and why does she want to kill our star quarterback?

  11. Is she his sister? Hey it worked for Hardy, Shakespeare & Lucas.

  12. […] still eyerolling on the idea that naming a charcater after a famous literary one and giving her one panel in which she suggests someone read a book turns her into a book lover. Retcon away, […]
