What Will Boo Do?

Another Monday, another conversation about Boo Radley by members of the anonymous Milford Greek chorus*.

True won’t go with Boo. It’s past his curfew, which he doesn’t have? C’mon True, just tell her that you have no interest in the Mystic Pranks.

After twenty seconds of vigorous research, I’ve determined that the Mystic Pranks are not a real band, not like the famous band Backyard Tire Fire. I wonder if Rubin used the Band Name Generator. Instead of Mystic Pranks, we could have had:
Warehouse Sinners
Grenade Justification
Random Liposuction Democracy
Slime Police

*Maybe I’m supposed to know who these two are?? Freckleless Amy and Hockeysticklegs McGee?



  1. Possible Identity of the Blonde (also works as a band name):

    Kasey Flanders
    Janni Paschal
    Probably not Andrea Lis
    Definitely not Nisha Vulaj

    None of these have been named yet this season.

  2. So, no one wants to ride with Boo ‘Chitwood‘ Rad-ical-ly to the Puffin’ Dumpster Fire late show? Damn – I was hoping we’d revisit the storied car crash plotline. Or at least get a KABOOM! out of the deal.

    Oh well, here’s today’s embedded haiku:

    I appreciate
    The invitation, but that’s
    After my curfew.

  3. The other embedded haiku is left as an exercise for the reader. (Hint – P1!)

  4. Is True Standish actually a high school-age boy? Hard to imagine any hormone-infused teen rejecting a girl’s invitation to a late-night rock concert. Unless he suspects that Boo will just end up going home with the band.

    Also, nice form-fitting book bag in panel 1. Those two books fit perfectly with no room to spare.

  5. Most bands don’t even start that late on a weekend, let alone on a week night. I forget, is this show in Raliegh or Central City? Boo may just be trying to see who is hardcore enough to hang with her after midnight on a school night. Mystic Pranks are actually touring Europe with Segregated Arm Pits. These Milford dames are so lame!

  6. OK, so once again we see that True is Mature and Responsible, and that Boo is deeply into provocation. I know the strip is written and drawn weeks in advance, but I still think it’s a nice coincidence that a federal court recently ruled that a high school cannot add unsolicited disciplinary records to a student’s college application. Who thinks True will somehow end up agreeing to go to Central City, that some outrage will be perpetrated, and that Chief Lind will bring them back?

  7. Have to say the brunette’s got a gorgeous head of hair – almost better then Margie’s. A shame to waste it on being a secondary nameless character.
