Or Maybe It’s Just That The Crotch Of His Pants Is Really Tight?


As the cameraman secretly thinks about how, maybe if he hadn’t partied quite so hard at Southern Illinois while he was getting his degree in radio and television, he could have avoided this career path that has him filming a D-list celebrity in a tank town for the most poorly planned reality TV show ever, Holly sets her trap.

True, again deftly displaying that the one thing Gil is good at coaching is blowing off reporters when the camera’s are rolling and the mics are hot, deflects her question and then curiously (coquettishly?) plays with his shaggy locks of blonde hair.

This all leads to a truly enjoyable final panel where Holly goes full Romulan and tries to prong True’s manhood upon the horns of a nasty dilemma. True, in mute astonishment, secretly thinks to himself that if he was going to end up a has been on a crappy reality show it would’ve at least been after a brief, star-crossed pro career.


  1. ” if he was going to end up a has been on a crappy reality show it would’ve at least been after a brief star crossed pro career and not after. ”

    I believe there is one too many ‘after’…..

  2. Fixed. Thank you! I usually try to read these at least once or twice before I publish them, but obviously mistakes have a way of slipping through when you’re your own proofreader.

  3. We’re really overdue for some mean 800, not the tamed version from her last few days.

  5. Um… isn’t this guy in a stable relationship with a girl who clearly likes him for himself? I realize we haven’t seen boo of Boo in months, but I don’t think she’s gone anywhere. Except maybe to the Shitti-Mart to pick up some Nut-Boys.

  6. Boo likes True. Knowing a little about Boo, she’d like the band Titus Andronicus. Who did a song called, Still Life with Hot Deuce and Silver Platter. Hot Ducey, indeed; where the hell is she? Only Marjie can save us now.

    And yes, Carl, lusting after cartoon back cleavage is 5 kinds of wrong. To a nunnery, go, and quickly too.

  7. Kebecub, does SIU still do those raucous Halloween parties? I went there once — I believe it was 1979 — and have never seen anything like that before or since.

  8. Ah, Carbondale. I’ve never been but knew several people who had. My last understanding was that they actually had a Halloween ‘break’ so the students were less likely to participate in the riots.

  11. Hey Moon, unfortunately SIU had its last “official” Halloween in 1988, my first year there after the service. We still had a couple of unofficial Halloweens when the administration thought it was a good idea to give a “fall break’ and clear out the dorms. This in turn made it difficult for the foreign students with no where to go and promoted underage drinking by having the misplaced underage students stay with the overage students with their own housing. Real bright huh?
