TV People Are The Worst

Filed under: freak hands, Pissy faced True — nedryerson @ 4:41 am


So, our suspicions are confirmed. Gil Thorp’s moral outrage has been sub-contracted out to True. It’s all coming down to a Pissy Face-Off between Dory and True. True’s gonna show Dory how awful those TV people really are! (So that means minimal football, I guess.)



  1. I really hope True’s “proof” is a collection of Funky Winkerbean strips from the Les goes to Hollywood story arc.

  2. Billy – A unholy cross-over it there ever was one. The recent Phantom-Mary Worth worlds collide was almost too much to stomach. If the Funky-verse bleeds into Milford, I’m moving to Canada. < /rant >

    Love the ownership in P2; Dorky: “Sorry *we* lost…”

  3. “Serious money? I thought it was funny money!” Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

  4. What serious money is Dorky looking to score off a soon to be canceled reality show. I’m sure he could get a guest spot on America’s Funniest Home Videos. That should set him up for life.

  5. Help me out here. Panel 3: am I counting five fingers plus one thumb on True’s hand? Assuming the underripe plantain looking thing is a finger. Even by Whigham standards, that is one odd looking hand. Does polydactyly help to grip a football?

  6. What I notice is the return of the character thread we have seen the past few years in boy admen, boy attorneys, boy coaching geniuses, but boy assholes, all of them. Dorky is off the rails in the same way. The uppance is coming, especially with basketball practice having already begun everywhere but Mfnrd. Look for this TV claptrap to go away within a week or so when the school (duh!) realizes what sleaze they have given free rein, and for order to be restored. That’s what act 5 is for. Then, maybe, we can forget this episode of temporary insanity on Whigrub’s part and (I hope) turn to something else.

  7. This summer, True subverted the entire college recruiting system. Now he’s going to put one over on the Hollywood sharpies. True Standish is becoming the Wesley Crusher of this comic strip: annoyingly super-competent at everything he does, and far smarter than the adults around him.

  8. Great point, John S, but Wesley Crusher without the smarm.

  9. […] Coach Gil Thorp during football season? Yeah, me neither. Then again, with that monster finger on that polydactyl throwing hand, word gets […]
