Ken’s Just Saying What We’ve All Been Thinking

Filed under: exposition comics — timbuys @ 7:15 am


Ken, if it’d help with the punching, Barry also called your mom a cow. Just sayin’…



  1. Rougned Odor move over, Ken Brown is about to deliver baseball’s next great punch.

    It’s not exactly fair for Ken to expect Barry to know his mother’s name, it’s not like they’re friends or anything. High school boys aren’t known for their fairness though, or for having filters on their mouths, so this is actually a pretty plausible way for a high school fight to start.

  2. Ordinarily I’d say that if Ken Brown were going to deck him, panel 3 would show Meinhoff rebounding from the locker room floor. But then again, one of the main premises in this story is that father and son are BOTH jerks, so maybe Barry WILL continue to run his mouth and get dropped. It’s going to be fun to watch this develop in any case, especially since Bader has repeatedly antagonized Brown in earlier strips…

  3. Speaking of locker room floors, tomorrow’s installment should feature a freaked-out Steve Luhm storming in and ordering Ken and Barry not to get any sweat or blood on his shiny clean floor.

  4. Surprise, surprise. Let the clock cleaning begin.

  5. And there’s Ken, monologuing about his intentions. Takin’ the high road, as a Judge’s son is wont to do. Blah blah blah.

    We’ll soon learn if Ken has a girlfriend, BFF, whatever; she’ll fly in from stage right with a uppercut and break BadBadBaderman’s jaw.

  6. Returned a moment ago to see if others had rung in on today’s development and got thinking about the shadow people in panel 3. It’s hard to read shadow people’s minds, but they appear to be thinking “Will you shut UP?” re Bader, rather than trying to get good seats to see Ken Brown turn their pain in the ass teammate into chutney. This could go in many directions. Insight on Bader’s part– which might warrant another panel like the wonderfully dark “eavesdropping panel” of a couple of days ago– may be the least likely outcome.

  7. Okay, mom, I guessed aunt. Close enough.
