This Week in Milford

Big Disappointment. I Thought It Was Going To Be About High School Athletics.

Much like the Thorp kids, the memory of Actual Action slowly recedes into the past. I suppose I should count myself as lucky as the last time we saw anyone in uniform or indeed saw some Actual Action occurred on my days to post. Since then? Well… sorry, but Rubin name checking Pete De Windt just ain’t doing it for me. Perhaps Neal will take up some of the more, um, interesting suggestions put forth by the TWIM commentariat.



  1. Thank you interwebs!

    In the Comedy of Errors, Adriana uses the water drop metaphor to express her view that husband and wife are indivisible, that married love is possessive and demands the obliteration of all individual identity.

    I hope hope hope that Holly fundamentally disagrees with Adriana on this point. Otherwise we’re left with Holly and Marty and that’s just yucky.

  2. Panels 2 & 3 seem out of order. Or did Dory say something funny that was not revealed? Probably not. I don’t see any Ha Ha Ha Ha’s.

  3. “Hamlet? I thought you said omelet, and now I’m all hungry.”

    “Henry the Eighth? I thought it was Henry the Ape, the Shakespeare play that’s absolutely bananas!”

    “As you like it? Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce.”

    “Othello? Hey, I love that game!”

  4. At least she’s bonking something.

  5. Y’know what would be just as side-splitting hilarious as Dory? The State Department of Environmental Conservation report on Hydrologic Management of the Milford Creek Watershed.
    Seriously, someone is signing Rubin’s checks. Have they pointed out to him that the funny character is not funny?

  6. Wondering what happened to Gil’s kids, I found…nothing.
    Other than a 7 year old list of comics that needed to die.
    All of of which are still around, although Cathy appears to be a zombie.

  7. Is Howdy Doody there supposed to be J-Rod “I only regret that I have but one starting job to lose for my team” Hale? Dor(k)y is working hard on becoming Clarabelle.

    Tomorrow’s post may come late in the day. I’ve been trying to get myself up to do a metapost comparing this fall’s arc to Teach: Tony Danza for adherence to reality but it’s required a lot more research than I’ve cared to do up ’til now.

  8. G2design, I like Veronica, but only when she demeans me in front of Betty.
    Is Boo doing a stint at juvie or something?

  10. […] ability to sow the seeds of dissent among the Milford football team. I’m guessing this is Pete De Windt confronting True in P3? And, by “spending a lot of time with,” he means “seen […]
