Meanwhile, Gil Is Lining Up His Putt

Filed under: freak hands, Milford Idiots, Pissy faced True — timbuys @ 6:32 am


The most interesting thing about today’s strip just might be Whigham’s delicate rendering of that kid’s peachfuzz in panel one.

Meanwhile, True is sensitive, because he has feelings, which is what Boo would’ve wanted, but nothing matters as it’s all random, or something…



  1. I was watching an old cartoon the other day where, in lieu of the censored “see you in hell”, the phrase “see you on the River Styx” was used. I thought that was a pretty creative work-around and far more effective than using the standard “heck”. Actually, I thought it was more effective than straight up saying “see you in hell” too. It’s something other writers ought to look into.

    Granted, the cartoon character who used the River Styx phrase was fairly intelligent and Barry isn’t supposed to be especially bright, it seems, so I guess “to heck” works here well-enough. I don’t care what happens in this storyline anymore.

  2. To heck with this storyline too. It’s almost August and they are still playing spring baseball. Let’s get this story wrapped up already. Moving at a glacier pace.

  3. So the denouement was much less kinetic than I hoped for. Another opportunity lost.

    Has Gil Thorpe ever booted a unlikable character into oblivion? If our last look at The Swiss Family Bader is today’s P3, complete with clenched fists and a bunch of unresolved issues; could that really be the end of this nonsense?

  4. No, this can’t be the end. Clearly True is going to intervene with some profound, insightful proclamation that makes everyone question themselves and end up a little better and more tolerant.

    This might come across as simply as ‘ease up, gents”, but you’ll be able to read between the lines.

  5. My curiosity is sparked. (But not in a “Oh boy, what’s next?” way, more like “What fresh hell is this?”) Is the rest of the team actually siding with Master Bader? Do they secretly hate their token African-American? (Have they had their own run-ins with Hang ‘Em Hiatt?)

    So yeah, I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s strip with a pained expression on my face.

  6. I’m with John S. Walters on this one. I was left with the impression that these guys don’t even have an clue what’s going on and Ken was just talking to himself.

  7. The map ends here too. First time I’ve seen a captain drive someone off a team.

  8. Is that the Darling boys from Andy Griffith in panel 2? Which one plays the jug?

  9. I think Mopped Up Thorp nailed it — True’s gonna save the day with a life lesson speech (in Gil’s continuing absence).

  10. […] kid who had nothing to do with his father’s accident, then shun him, then repeat the entire cycle again and again, then act all pissy because the kid doesn’t want to be around us so we can […]
