This Week in Milford

I Will Be Your Bader Figure, I Have Had Enough of Crime


What kind of gravitational time dilation is happening in Milford, where school is still in regular session on July 16? Have they gone to year-round classes without us knowing? This seems like the kind of crap Hobart might’ve pulled during a closed-door school board session to spite Gil and his ex-wife. In any event, no reason for Gil to tell Barry to slow down – time has slowed enough already.

If Barry (who continues to suffer from alopecia areata and Braying Jackass Exploding Mouth Syndrome) thought the stupid lawyer cost so much, imagine how much a smart one – one who might have kept Del out of jail – would’ve cost! At least over the next few days we’ll finally get to see what a lot of us thought we should’ve seen at least two weeks ago: Gil offer some kind of counseling to poor, delusional, self-absorbed, father figureless Barry, albeit not necessarily of his own volition.



  1. I lament the lost opportunity for Gil to utter the immortal words, “Ease Up.” Or perhaps “Ease Up, Gent.”

    Otherwise, I can’t wait for Gil’s Five Seconds of Wisdom counseling technique to straighten Barry right out. Then can we have a summer plotline?

  2. Master Bader will be the summer plot line IMHO John S…..

  3. If Rowdyman is right— and he usually is– we will have the most unattractive summer character since that asshole father who named his kids for golf courses and cheated for them by improving their lies. As far as Barry (look up the term “arrested development” and you will find his picture) is concerned, I call on the military surgeon in All Quiet on the Western Front– “Chloroform the scoundrel!”

  4. You know, it could be, in Monday’s strip, that Gil says Barry needs ‘a diversion’ to keep his mind off the problems around his father. And that diversion will be ……. a summer job at the golf course!
    Thank you, thank you, yes, I’ve found the way to get everything back into the proper timeline.

  5. Moon – failing that, maybe he’ll get hired on at the Subwich. Enter Herk the Mauler, and we’re back in business.

    teenchy – great title.

  6. Selasky’s got mentioned yesterday, and now Herk the Mauler. What a shame– if Herk had showed up at Selasky’s on a memory tour, mistaken Del Bader for Darth the Destroyer, and put him through the front window, none of this need have happened…

  7. […] causation goes.   Does he thank his old man for getting thrown into the stony lonesome, or that stupid lawyer  for not working out a better deal for his old man, or that ugly cow of a judge for hearing his case, […]
