This Week in Milford

Quick Take

September 22, 2015


Panel One: More wacky fonts and chunky bracelets…

Panel Two: I formally invite our commenters to describe what drill Gil is performing.

Panel Three: Man, there is something off about both Gil and Doctor Pearl here. Who knows what is going on with her lapel?



  1. Looks like Gil is practicing the face blurred out drill.

  2. 7Z is an uncommon number in football.

    Panel 3 is either a triumph of perspective, or Dr. Pearl is a lot shorter than I remember…

  3. Thorp wants his face blurred because there are arrest warrants out for him in several other states.

  4. So, Janice does not want to be video’ed or photographed. Hmmm. I wonder if that’s the same Janice that did that thing that one time. She puts the nice in Janice, nowadimsayin? Yeah, me neither.

  5. Dr. Pearl looks like that artist’s rendition of Tom Brady in the courtroom a couple of months ago.

  6. Sounds like typical administrative SOP. Make decisions & plans without discussing them with the personnel who will be affected…

  7. Not just the personnel, but also the parents. If this happened in real life, there’d be an open revolt.

    And while Gil wants his face blurred out, I suspect that Kaz will be showing up to work shirtless and flexing.

  8. You can blur Gil’s face, but those finely chiseled pecs and guns are instantly recognizable. Along with the “Gil” coffee mug and baseball participation trophy.

  9. “Janice” appears purely to show us there is student/parental resistance to this idiocy. Few schools I have known would agree to change a kid’s teacher purely on a parental request, nor certainly any which would allow these “reality” vultures onto the campus. GT often stretches the bounds of realism, but here we have entered some parallel dimension. I am usually happy to follow even the most asinine developments in Mfnrd, but this one is losing me.

  10. There’s willing suspension of disbelief, and then there’s what’s going on in Our Little Tank Town.
    I’ve also got this feeling that Whigrub’s a couple years behind the times. It just seems there’s less pertinence in this arc’s plot than if it had happened a few years ago when this sort of show was exploding into production like mushrooms after the rain. Oh, well. Nothing to do now but ride the wave and mercilessly mock Marty in due time.

  11. Well said, FoolyRain.

  12. Why would the counselors’ reading glasses (they may be for farsightetness but I doubt it) be on her head as she’s writing something down? When she would need them?

  13. Man! Some of you guys (any gals?) are great at spotting the most minute details! My hats off to you!

  14. Looks like the drill in P2 is the classic “stumble forward while a drunk stander-by glares at you” drill.
    Number 7Z seems to be succeeding — barely.
