This Week in Milford

January 2, 2016

Ladies and Gentleken, your 2016 Lady Mudlarks!


Well here we go. Developing and maintaining strong female characters hasn’t been one of Rubin’s strengths (at least not since Darby Kiser, anyway), so now he’s gonna give it a try by creating a… physically strong female character? Obviously this is something Milford High boys aren’t prepared to handle, as evidenced by Tonsure Boy’s crack about Miss Hanley’s physique and/or playing style.

Why doesn’t the sign on Mimi’s door read “Mrs. Coach Thorp” or “Coach M. Thorp”? That could be Gil’s boys roster they’re reading. Oh well, details, details…


  1. Max Bacon is talking to a pig in a Yarmulke. Oy!
    Knowing that Whigrub’s drawing of Kenzie was plot relevant is actually fairly impressive.

  2. Another high schooler with male pattern baldness in panel 3. Must be something in the water in Milford.

  3. Ah, there’s nothing like someone delivering a hoaky “more like” pun as if it is the funniest thing in the world.
    This is already more interesting than the football season plot, too.

  4. Billy’s right– it’s already better than the football season plot. At least this one involves things that could actually happen.

  5. No love for the reserve point guard cut from the squad to make room for Kenzie? Oh well. I can only hope that Tonsure Boy will find himself, ahem, “posted up” by the object of his scorn.

  6. With the show of solidarity in P1&2, and the juvenile (what?) attitude in P3, here’s hoping the Girls of Milford say, “No more!” and stage a sex strike. Good luck with that Gil.

  7. See? Definitely better than that godawful football season plot, and we’re barely underway.

  8. Maybe Charlie Brown’s teacher can read that roster list. I can’t. Looks like an all Muslim team. Who knew Milford was so progressive?

  9. Jive Turkey’s right — that roster looks ISIS-ish to me. Sorry Mimi, it’s off to Gitmo with you.

  10. Are we ready for a “trans” plot? Is that the “Menzie” reference’s intent?

  11. They know it’s the girls roster on the door of the “Coach Thorp” office because the only time Gil’s in his office is to drink, and by the time he finishes he can’t remember his own name, let alone his roster.
