This Week in Milford

January 27, 2017

Do we have to talk about it at all??

Slogging along with Kenny and .. Granger, who is Mike to us, we see shadows playing hoops in P1, and the 2 dark shadows talking on the… bench while facing AWAY FROM THE ACTION, which appears to be a marathon run. What the hell are they sitting on, kitchen chairs?? Every basketball bench I ever saw was a long wooden seat that was the first row in the stands, with the spectators sitting on the same material behind the team. And why not face away from the game, as theyre rehashing their relationship with Aaardvark, and even Granger is sick of talking about it already. Who gives a crap at this point, the strip again managing to beat a dead horse until nobody cares. See last 15 storylines for examples.

Gil calls for them to go in the game simultaneously, and great, now they can discuss it in front of Aaron, while theyre at the foul line, or maybe even on the fast break. One of these months we’ll get the big reveal, and another season will go to waste while they rehash ONE topic over and over. I’d rather the focus be on the development of the team for a change; its always one mope spoiling everything.

  1. You nailed it, Rob. The only exception I can think of is True Standish and even he started to grate when he awkwardly and distastefully became the focus of the Boo Radley arc.

  2. The background of panel 1 isn’t a basketball game — it’s the slow-motion running scene from “Chariots of Fire.” Da-da-da-da-daaaah-da…

  3. I think we’re actually looking at the two silhouettes from behind. This is one of those optical illusion silhouettes like ‘what is it, a goblet or two kissing Egyptians?’ that you can actually say it can be either way and be correct.

  4. My take on the perspective is the same as Moon’s.

  5. Yeah Moon I see that, but that would make even less sense, since behind them are the rest of the bleachers in rows. With people in them. How the hell can we see the silhouettes of their asses if the stands are also there?

  6. Way-al, et looks lak Grandpa Jones ‘n’ Snuffy Smith iz ana-lyzin’ the Bos-stone Marathon over a game uf checkers in P1, Snuffy slowly draggin’ on hiz corn cob pipe and Grandpa and Snuffy sharin’ the corn squeezin’s they’s snuck past th’ revenoors. Wait a minute, this isn’t the Hee Haw set(now I know why George Jones and Merle Haggard wasn’t anywhere around), it’s the Hardy Boys still clinging to a plotline that’s hanging by a thread. Gee, I know they’d like to sneak a peak for the answer in “Encyclopedia Brown Solves The Box-And-One”(…”Bugs Meany said he’d been playing defense all his life. Yet when Sally Kimball went one-on-one with him, remember that Bugs Meany crossed his feet. This is a no-no in basketball. When Encyclopedia informed Bugs that you slide your feet…”), but, um, er, guys, THERE’S A BASKETBALL GAME GOING ON!!!!!!!!!! Can we lay aside our magnifying glass for clues at a later date? I think Gil is asking the same question in P3. But you be the judge.

  7. BTW, John S., funny, funny. Pretty well sums up P1.

    Today’s headline from the Milford Enquirer
    “Cochrane Requests Mrs. Aardvark’s Testimony Be Smitten From The Record!!!! Possible Drug Usage Taints Her Version Of O. J.’s Whereabouts!!!!”
    Sub headline
    “Judge Ito Moves For Recess To The Bucket.”
