Who Fist Bumps Through A Chain Link Fence?


The Bader’s are rocketing up the charts of terrible Gil Thorp father-son lead characters today.  I suppose the lesson to learn is that jerks have a proportionately higher chance of raising jerky kids? I dunno… Perhaps it’s too early to seek out a moral here.



  1. You can’t make yourself big, but you can get yourself kicked off the team for mouthing off to the coaches. It happened to Adam Mundy about 10-11 years ago, who actually was big… and good at baseball.

  2. Sure people fist bump through chain link fencing. It’s an often used training device for the novice fist bumper. To paraphrase Clambake, just lock in on one hole and DAP!

  3. Ah yes, Adam Mundy. Probably my all time favorite character.
    Is that some foreshadowing in panel 3? Will they soon be fist bumping through a prison yard fence?
    What happened to pops mullet from panel 1 to panel 2?

  4. Young Master Bader is this season’s designated Douche bag. Looks like he is destined to be hated be all his teammates like Knox Foley.

  5. Man, did Barry roll snake-eyes with the genetic dice or what? Nasty attitude, predisposition to alcohol abuse, lumpy nose… and in his future, a double chin and a receding hairline.

  6. Barry: “Coach Kaz chewed me out pretty good for going off on him.”
    Del: “I don’t care, son. Of course, there’s a lot of things I don’t care about … traffic laws, public safety, my future at work …”
    Barry: “Yeah, mom says if you lose your license and can’t drive to visit customers, you’ll have to set up a stand at the end of the driveway with a hand lettered sign that says ‘INDUSTRIAL SOLVENTS $1.00′”
    Del: “Well, that’s … anyhow … did mom say anything else?”
    Barry: “Yeah. Who’s Willy Loman?”

  7. These Darth Baders are full of sith.

  8. Theme and variations: every other year, it seems, we have asshole son imitating asshole father. The variations, fortunately, sometimes deviate toward the mean, as with Standish, Sr, who showed signs of development when he defended Gil against charges of tampering with True’s choice of schools.

  9. Isn’t there a scene in Midsummer Night’s Dream where two characters kiss through a hole in the wall?
