Who Keeps CD’s In A Glovebox?

Filed under: Bad Jokes, freak hands — timbuys @ 6:21 am


Then again, when was the last time anyone put gloves in a glovebox? Why do we park in a driveway and drive in a parkway?

I think we’ve all heard enough at this point.



  1. Oh, so now the strip is lampshading how ridiculous its own story is? Yeah, that works when we aren’t supposed to take the story seriously. Literally every other aspect of this story has been (poorly) treated as serious business on the road to learning some grand life lesson.

    I’ve heard about enough of what everyone in this strip has had to say. May as well cut the losses and move on to football season. Oh, and I still listen to cassettes in my car, and like CDs, they don’t go in the dang glove box either…

  2. But Barry doesn’t know that. He can’t know that. Only the Readers are privy to that niggling little detail: that Boo was alive until the second impact.

    So, 1) Barry is Satan’s spawn and has Knowledge no mere mortal would possess, 2) the truck driver admits to seeing Boo alive before (s)he crushes the Jeep, or 3) there’s yet another hole in the plot.

    What did I miss?

  3. The police chief told Gil that 2d driver confessed to fumbling for CD…

  4. g2 makes a telling point that I had not thought of before– that we are the only ones who know Boo was shaken but alive after the first impact…

  5. P1: No, Ken, use your middle finger!

  6. Why hasn’t the identity of the pick up driver been revealed yet? It’s been weeks since the fatal crash. Why isn’t that person under arrest too? This plot is moving slower than molasses in January.

  7. That’s identity. Stupid auto correct.

  8. So apparently a two-bit philosophy class has broken out in the Mudlarks’ locker room. And where the hell is True all this time? Not to mention the coaches; presumably Gil and Kaz are weightlifting together in a Not At All Gay Way. We can only hope they don’t swoop in until Barry’s head-down in the toilet getting a Gitmo Swirly.

  9. Right, Rowdyman — True also mentions the second driver “fumbling for a CD” during Boo’s funeral, so it must be common knowledge.

    g2design — Barry probably doesn’t know for a fact that Boo survived the first crash (or at least there’s no way for him to know) but it’s Barry. Facts, schmacts! Hog credit, deflect blame.

    P1: The role of Barry Bader is being played by a tonsured version of Stanley Spadowski. Ooooh, I hope Big Ken Brown makes him drink from the fire hose (NOT A EUPHEMISM. I would like to see an actual fire hose turned on him.)

  10. Captain Ken’s panel 3 question implies he is about to propose action. This… should be interesting.

    In fictive time, the accident is now about a week ago, and I am sure that if the pickup driver were believed to bear any criminal responsibility for the crash he would have been charged by now. The CD revelation at the funeral surprised me: I had thought we were to assume he had come around a bend in the road and come upon the scene unable to stop in time, or that he was traveling at highway speed with his low beams on. There are a lot of things wrong with this plot, and one of them is that this would be a lot more clear if there were no third vehicle muddying the picture. Perhaps Whigrub believed that with modern Jeeps, it would take two impacts– one to compromise the structure, and a second to deliver the fatal blow.

  11. Is that True at the locker in P3, demurely hiding his front bottom with a strategically placed window treatment? If so, he and he alone has the moral authority to answer Cap’t Ken’s Question of Significant Importance.

    Or Ken simply follows up with, “That was rhetorical, you idiots.” and moves ahead with the kinetic portion of the conversation.

  12. I still cannot believe that any driver would tell a policeman, “I wasn’t watching. I was looking for a CD”. Any real life person would swear that they were facing straight ahead, watching the road, and driving three miles an hour under the limit.
    Unless the pickup’s driver was found unconscious with “Peter Frampton’s Greatest Hits” in his hand …
