Hi, Giant Snowman!

Filed under: Central City Cretins, freak hands, Gil Thorp, Kenzie Hanley, Mimi Thorp — timbuys @ 8:21 am


Let’s jump past panel one where, between the guy who was trying to rough somebody up is complaining about someone being roughed up and having to wonder where they found that proportionately large carrot for the snowman’s nose, there is too much to ponder.*

No, for me today’s strip gets back to what it’s all about: Gil and Mimi are terrible high school coaches. Gil is barely able to register what Max is talking about as he stuporously sorts through his novelty oversized OTB betting slips looking for a winner while Mimi yuks it up as Kenzie relates her tale of Assault and Counter Battery.

* Does that guy go to Jeff Cory’s med school?



  1. I wonder if Gil is taking Hampton and the 23pts? UNC Wilmington and the 10? He’s so wasted he’s probably taking the Fighting Illini.

  2. I still don’t think there’s going to be any further police involvement. Unless an officer sees the event and becomes, in effect, the complainant, the punks will have to make a complaint (“press charges”) and I think that’s unlikely. Probably the CC cops called Chief Lind, who said “Send them home and I’ll call their coaches.” I do like Mimi’s smile in panel 3– she’s reacting to this the way I have… Now I’m having fun picturing how this will affect the rest of the basketball season.

  3. Lots of palm positions in today’s panels 2&3. I wish I knew ASL because I’m sure there’s some secret Masonic message in today’s strip.

    And the juxtaposition of the looming snowman in P1; well, when you see that – we’ve all seen that – it’s looming and scary as hell if you ask me.

  4. g2 makes a strong point. I first mistook the snowman for the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. And there really is an unusual amount of palmistry today. It’s almost as if the Chief has read our snarks about “freak hands.”

  5. Hey, say what you will about the University of Illinois Men’s Basketball team, but they didn’t lose today unlike some other Big Ten schools I could name.

  6. JT, UNCW and the 10 would’ve been a good pick.

    Am I crazy or does look like Mimi’s ready to grab Kenzie’s boobs?

  7. […] style to know whether this approach is SOP for her. We know she’s all cool with her bigs breaking jaws off the court, so why such the big deal now? Get Paloma back in the game now and get the W […]
