Sure, We Could Be Seeing Actual Action

But better that we watch this phony baloney sales meeting. About the nicest thing I can say for panels one and two is that the drawings of the light fixtures in panel two are kinda interesting if poorly rendered. Otherwise, today’s strip uses more than three-quarters of its space to essentially rehash yesterday’s plot development, leaving us with one desultory panel of Boo marching back to the dugout mid no-hitter.

Bonus point? Maybe if so much space hadn’t been allotted to panels one and two, we could get a better glimpse of the flipper Boo is wearing on her right foot.



  1. The client will enjoy tonight’s special (braised bologna with a mint-citrus gremolata), leave Del with the tab, and cancel the order tomorrow.

  2. Who the hell says you’re buying? I’m with Phillip, order canceled. I’m still waiting on the judge and Del meeting outside of courtroom. Will she pick up tab and drive drunkard Del home?

  3. I could have sworn Tilden had a couple of songs that charted back in the mid-90s.

  4. Organic chemistry. Why the hell I still remember this Shiite is beyond me. The ice in the P2 drink is an essential clue. That 5-sided regular pentagon – he’s drinking cyclopentane. Maybe Selasky’s offers set-ups (BYOB if that’s too regional for the reader) and Del brought in a bottle of his “best” solvent.

    Watch out, Boaty McCustomer, you’ll be blowing foam later!

  5. What’s more exciting: a no-hitter in progress or two guys getting sloshed on an expense account?

    … and remember, taxpayers, this is all a deductible business expense for Del’s employer.

  6. Do we assume– given Del’s anger over his arrest and his minimization of its seriousness– that he will be on his ass before the end of the meeting, and likely to get snagged again?

  7. We’re kicking it in Cyrillic now, vaganova?

  8. it appears that the softball team switched back to basketball uniforms mid-inning–that must be some sort of baseball superstition. . .

  9. So Del does what exactly (besides picking up the check)?

  10. Why on earth would Del think he wasn’t paying – he’s the sales guy. Of course he’s paying. True story: when I used to live in Tokyo there was a gentleman’s club called “the D*ck and Uprise”. One of my colleagues was worried about his wife seeing this name on his credit card bill and was assured that there would be absolute discretion. His credit card bill subsequently arrived and, true to their word, the name was changed, to “D*ck and Uprise Restaurant”. Genius.

  11. Hmm, timbuys, yes, but it’s a ruse.

    Basketball and softball did kind of run together– I am fine with the girls wearing the wrong jerseys in the early innings.

    Since we have not heard of Selasky’s Supper Club before I am guessing it is in Central City rather than Mfnrd. In his initial offense, Del smoked his tires– how will he attract the polizei this time? I keep thinking of the fact industrial solvents are involved– will there be some meltdown along the way involving the EPA and FEMA?
