This Week in Milford

All Our Basketballs Are Missing

Filed under: basketball, Kenzie Hanley, Milford Idiots — nedryerson @ 4:13 am


How about Menzie Kanley? Or how about calling her Dexter, as in Dexter Manley. (Remember him? I saw him beat up a sideline cooling fan when he briefly played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers…yeah, I got nothing much to say about this strip.)

How about you, Ken Brown? What do you think? Do you like sappy Facebook posts and plastering your laptop with stickers?



  1. Panel 3, foreshadowing the Mutt-and-Jeff pairing of tiny PG Max Bacon and bruising C Kenzie Hanley. She can literally wrap him around her little finger.

    Idle thought: Did Neal Rubin name her character “Kenzie Hanley” just to set up these stupid puns?

  2. I don’t think I’d be making fun of anyone else’s appearance if I looked like a tonsured Topo Gigo or a blond Crispin Glover, but that may just be me.

  3. As a pencil-necked youth, I played the role of Hiram Abernathy in our high school production of Curse of the Aching Heart. My wife, Sarah, was played by the starting center of the State Champion girls basketball team, all 6′-2″ and 220lbs of her. I recall the “hug” scene got plenty of laughs.

    So, yeah, Baco’s and K-Z for sure.

  4. Panel 3 shows Milford is accepting of all races,even crash test dummies. Oh yeah, Dexter Manley. Da Coach once said he had an IQ of a grapefruit . It wasn’t much after that it was revealed Dexter couldn’t read. If he could play basketball he would be an ideal recruit for Jimmy V.

  5. You know, when I wrote this post this a.m., I wasn’t aware that Dexter Manley was a trending topic due to something dumb he said on television over the weekend. No need to repeat it, suffice to say, the guy is a clown. I recently saw a listing on the NFL Network for Dexter Manley: A Football Life and couldn’t stop laughing.
    It is fitting that the Buccaneers, in the depths of their putridness in the eighties/early nineties took a chance with him. He couldn’t stay clean and he was terrible.

  6. Am I really bad at context clues, or are we to infer from p3 that the Baconator is defending Kenzie on the grounds that “everyone” wants to be bigger and stronger? In any case the odds are high that there will be observations about Maxwell needing to strap a board to his ass.

  7. This plot is about 15 years late, so in comics terms, timely.

  8. Plate of Shrimp, Ned.

  9. Lattice of coincidence

  10. You ever feel as if your mind had started to erode?
