This Week in Milford

December 15, 2015


Back in high school my junior class and I were taking our SAT’s on a Saturday, and after an hour or so we took a break. After we had regathered in our seats, the teacher announced that we were now halfway through the test. My friend sitting 2 seats behind me (in alphabetical order, I knew her solely due to our lockers being next to each other giving me the advantage of chatting her up between classes) intoned ‘Whoopie.’ Got a nice laugh out of everyone and eased the tension in the room for the rest of the test. She’d be flattered I’m using her deadpan remark as the title of this post.

Back to the story – yeah they should’ve done more this year but were too busy filming Dory Dingbat and the Dominos. Congrats on playing 5 games this year Gil; your player is still so excited that football is over before Christmas he’s putting his fist through the comic strip. If Gil spelled out his obstacles we’d be here til Bonfire 2016. And he’s looking forward to one more camera shot, which hopefully someone else will describe tomorrow.

Until then – whoopie.



  1. P2: I’m stumped. For what specifically is Holly thanking Gil? Thanks, Gil, for not saying, “Why Oh You Are Ess”?

    *Confused. I had intended to just haiku P2 for us; 17 syllables if you pronounce it “ev-ry”; maybe I should’ve left it at that.

    P1, however, I understand completely: Holly is still lying, and Gil is taking credit where none is due.

  2. If Holly just abandoned the whole TV show in midseason, then all I can say is she’d better brush up on her teaching skills ’cause she’ll never work in television again.

  3. Is that Ted Cruz in panel 3? Comic strip guest appearances are an interesting campaign strategy…

  4. Oh yeah, Gil for president! He’ll govern just like he coaches, laissez-faire.

  5. I’d like to think Gil’s admission in panel one is Rubin admitting he messed up the plotting on this arc.
