Time to shoot these people out of a cannon

Today brings more analysis of True by True and according to True, and we even have a misspelled word thrown in for good measure. Apparently he’s discovered if he doesnt care about something that means he should care. A fraud in baseball? Thats an understatement. The best idea anyones had on this is teenchy yesterday – just throw him in right field and be done with it. Why go through all the trouble of pretending he’s really a pitcher? And Boo really is the last person to tell him how to behave, with her side life of late-night carousing. But he figured it out himself, and in this strip thats all that matters. Time to celebrate with the Mystic Pranks.



  1. Yes, these latest developments aren’t promising but I suppose we’ll have to wait and see. As of now, though, I’m inclined to be superficial and say that people with haircuts that terrible deserve each other.

  3. And once again, a potentially interesting female character is reduced to playing the foil for some dopey boy. This season would have been so much more fun if we’d followed the softball team. Will Boo lead the Mudlarks to a championship, or will she get herself suspended in time for the Big Game?

  4. How is True a goof-off? Juggling baseballs? I haven’t seen any other goofing off. What, he threw a few balls in the dirt? Then Mitch Williams is the biggest goof-off of all time. True is not bad enough to be on the Bad News Bears.

  5. John S, yes. I would be happier if Gil had put True in right (“And Standish throws him out by five feet!”) and concentrated on Boo and the softball team. Fascinating character we know next to nothing about. We have football for True Two.

    And Jive Turkey, agree. Baseball is ABOUT screwing around– bubble gum balloons on a teammate’s hat, hotfoots, and that all time knee-slapper, hot balm in the umpire’s jock. It can be overdone, but I didn’t see True overdoing even if Max (“Cotton Mather”) Ortiz did. The culture of baseball is simply different than football: the fact players don’t act like they’re in the battle of Stalingrad does not mean they’re not focused and bearing down.
