This Week in Milford

He’s Asking, Well, He’s Asking What We’re All Asking…

I’m trying to get a read on the emotions going through Dory’s mind as he dialogues with The Secret Pelwecki. It seems like a mix of incredulity and contempt with a very strong overtone of panic as he realizes that he’s sitting next to the latest Milfordian boy to succumb to delusions of tank town grandeur.

I was so taken by following The Sec-Pel’s train of thought, that I almost didn’t notice that he was making this pitch to Gil and Kaz in panel two. Gil looks like he’s about to fall over backwards drunk while Kaz is reminiscing about his bouncer days as he flexes intimidatingly in an attempt to shoo Kevin away.

Meanwhile, in panel three… Uh, hey, let’s all just pretend panel three didn’t happen.




  1. Not only is he butt ugly he is stupid too.

  2. This is the same logical trap that Captain Kirk used to defeat Harry Mudd’s androids. But, but… if you were playing quarterback we would have won the game… but if you weren’t playing defensive end, you couldn’t have caused the fumble that won us the game… does not compute… DOES NOT COMPUTE…

  3. “Son, do you have any idea how football works?”

  4. That’s not an appearance– Gil IS falling over backward. No alcohol necessary, just the sudden insight that there must be something in the water. Every year, it seems, a Mfnrd kid becomes delusional.

  6. Good point, Rowdyman. According to my memory of Perspective 101, the lines should be converging slightly from this point of view.
