This Week in Milford

February 10, 2017

I’m not sure what this means, but I may die waiting for it.

Well we’re getting to the point where everyone that gives a crap about Aardvarks play and his moms job or lack thereof has jumped off the ship, shrieking like a banshi. I cant believe a whole week has gone by and I basically have the same thing to say, and that is we still dont know whats going on. 21 panels wasted on dicking around and shadows and Gil drinking coffee and Marty surprised about AA off the bench and so on. No girls basketball to speak of still and its 8 days past Groundhog Day. And it gets worse – now they know and they wont tell us for another week or two.

At least Marty found his partner Paul Strange.

  1. Absolutely agreed, Rob. Building up suspense is one thing, repeatedly stuttering over the same plot points is another.

  2. This is the worst fucking storyline since Cully Vale. This plotline is like a zombie in that it will never die. At least Culver had good hair. Aardvark has that terrible shaved slinghead. Bring back Herk the Mauler!

  3. Secret Panel 4: Marty continues… “I wonder if it has something to do with his mother.”

  4. Panel 3 seems to show the fans have had it too, unless they all suddenly decided to head for the drinking fountain.

  5. I couldn’t agree more, robmize. You’d need jumper cables the size of Pterodactyl claws connected to an electrical substation that feeds electricity to, say, Muncie, Indiana, Bowling Green, Kentucky, or Kenosha, Wisconsin to get this storyline to rise from the dead. Even then, you run the risk of a short and then cities like these are SOL in the dark.
    And why are we plodding along about Mrs. Aardvark’s career status? It’s not as if she is a member of the Corleone family. Do we have to sneak up to find out the vocational truth? It might be taken as an affront to ask Mrs. Aardvark “Are you a garbage collector?” but as robmize mentioned, we’ve spent 21 panels with Mike Granger practically playing Vocational Guidance Counselor. Can we kind of move to the point?

    Today’s headline from the Milford Enquirer
    “O. J.: ‘I Sort Of Had Those Gloves On When I Sort Of Attempted To Strangle Heather.'”
    “Judge Ito to Cochrane: ‘Will You Sort Of Advise Your Client To Move To The Point? The Jury Has Dinner Reservations at 5:30 at The Milford Country Club!!!'”

  6. Mike Granger: “Then she IS an actuary!!!!!!!!!!! I knew it!!!!!”
    Aardvark: “OK!!!!! OK!!!!! So you know the truth!!!!! Did you stay awake all night on that one? Are you happy now? Geez, I didn’t expect a Spanish Inquisition!!!!!”
    BOOM BOOM BOOOMMMM
    Our heroes bolt out of Locker Door #27
    “NOBODY EXPECTS THE SPANISH INQUISITION!!!!!”

    “Now Aardvark, you’ve been charged with heresy by word, heresy by thought, and heresy by deed. HOW DO YOU PLEAD?”
    “INNOCENT!!!!!”
    “HA!!!!! We’ll see how you respond after we employ our methods of torture!! Guard, poke him with—–THE NERFBALL!!!!!”

    “Aardvark, you may have survived all our excruciating ways of getting information but THIS ONE YOU WILL NOT SURVIVE!!!!! This is your last chance. You have been charged with heresy by word, heresy by thought, and heresy by deed. HOW DO YOU PLEAD?”
    “INNOCENT!!!!!”
    “HA!!!!! You will regret your decision!!!!! Guard, show him pictures of Mimi Thorp and Peaches when they are adorned with cold cream on their faces and with curlers in their hair!!!!!
    “NO!!!!! NO!!!!! I CONFESS!!!!!”
