This Week in Milford

Handing off his lunch

So now we see the equipment bag in its full glory; Heather pulled ONE football out of that monstrosity. Another silly idea – bring 1 football in a huge bag. Then we have silly idea #2 – Kevin handing a bag of – chips? – to a surprised student. Great idea to practice with chips – shove em right in someone’s  belly and watch the bag open to a crumbling mess. Lovely. Pass the dip please. He could hand off his term paper like that too; how about a pair of glasses to an umpire. Garbage to the janitor. Books to the librarian. A balloon to a clown. A sack of coins to his banker. With interest of course.

The home opener on October 14; even the Nats and Dodgers got done before this. And no bonfire in this soggy mess; a blessing for some, a fumble-fest for some others.



  1. As the King of Comics Snark, Josh Fruhlinger, pointed out, we didn’t get a homecoming bonfire this year. Sad.

  2. Taking the baton(pardon the pun) from our feature writer’s hilarious rendition of the cafeteria-turned-practice-field(we think), I really honestly think hall monitors or teachers assigned cafeteria duty couldn’t care less WHAT our potential Joe Montana was practicing if he was actually using a football instead of Lay’s Cheddar ‘n’ Onion, the 12 oz. bag. Don’t think the late great Arnie Palmer used ping pong balls to work out the kinks in putting. We hope those same chips, indeed, don’t spill and land in the tray of our future Anne Meara and Jerry Stiller, proudly chowing down on a Big Milford in the foreground. I’m sure a flying scrunched Dorito Ranch landing on the Big M would ruin their appetite. And the plotline itself is taking a beating as it is meandering like a “Find the Treasure” placemat at a Frisch’s Big Boy or Steak ‘n’ Shake. One minute we’re seeing handoffs with Veggie Chips then the next we see our Future Joe applying the Pile Driver to a hapless Jefferson receiver. Atta way to make Jerry Lawler proud. And did we ever get the completion of Heather’s comment from the previous strip? Oh, I forgot, we are seeing things through a clouded mirror and forced to play Mad-Lib and use our imagination. Par for the course in these chain of events. You take the baton now, Coach Thorp.
