This Week in Milford

Wait, Was Ken Supposed To Be Holmes?

Filed under: Boredom in Milford, freak hands, Milford Idiots — timbuys @ 7:11 am


Panel one: Ken ‘Colombo’ Brown looks like he’s had just about enough of this.

Panel two: Mike ‘Hercule Poirot’ Granger is not at all happy about that awkward touch on his shoulder by what appears to be the hand of god.

Panel three: I say, with his sneer and peek a boo bang thing going on, AAAA is being revealed as the true villain here. As the saying goes, eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, is likely going to make more sense than the latest plot twist in Gil Thorp.



  1. I was beginning to wonder if AA was ever going to figure it out and expose these backstabbing piece of shit snitches from the Romanian Secret Police…

    And Gilberto is still due for a proper telling off too, for sticking his nose where it didn’t belong.

  2. So now we get a little bit of team infighting resulting in a string of losses and, voila, no playdowns and a clear golf schedule for Gil. The question is, was this is master plan all along? Or is this another example of Gil’s negligent absentee coaching style?

  3. Have these three ever discussed anything but Granger & Brown’s junior detective work and Aagard’s mom’s job? It’s not like they were really speaking before.

    And thus ends the latest story from yet ANOTHER one of Rubin’s unrealistically glib teenagers… Probably. After last baseball season we cannot really be sure, can we?

  4. Billy, if Rubin sticks to his normal schedule, we’ve got another 4 or 5 weeks before the spring story. I have no idea what he’s going to do with it … maybe Gil will spend the time figuring out how to get AaAa a spare sandwich or two.

  5. Will Ken finally tell Aaron, “Yo’ mama !”

  6. Luckily Ken and Mike have a new problem to take to Gil: Why can’t that kid in panel 2 afford a haircut?

  7. Shading dangerously close to profiling here. “Yo Ken”; clearly a shout out to the trans-formative Yo! MTV Raps, or maybe Yo! Raps magazine, your urban magazine for breaking news, latest music videos blahblahblah.. Emphasis on urban, which apparently is pejorative in Milfrd.

    Mike fairs no better with “Sherlock”; being clever and insightful is a non-starter in Muckfunk.

    Damn! AaAa’s got hisself some knives out to-day!

  8. I don’t see Aaron breaking out the Ed Lover dance. He seems more of a Parents Just Don’t Understand kinda guy.

  9. You know Aardvark is getting off the mat and taking off the gloves when he sports that The Artist Formerly Known as Prince coiffure. The Road Runner coxcomb did little to stave off the Hardy Boys as we have observed with Friday and Gannon staking out McShane’s, et al, so Aardvark is resorting to desperate measures, switching hairdressers and leaving the driving to Greyhound, Gil the principal bus driver in this case, forcing Gil to make an emergency stop at The Night Gallery, er, counselor’s office. Now if Aardvark resembles Mr. T, then it would be in everybody’s best interests for Gil to report Aardvark’s situation. No sense in Aardvark displaying all those earrings as that might affect his ability to dunk.

  10. Aa is popping off in defense of his mother, whom he must also realize is harming him as a side effect of her addiction– he has said as much. Leaving out legalities, etc, Captain Ken has been pretty quiet lately. I am predicting that as the son of a judge he has been brought up with some sense of right vs wrong and obligation vs meddling, and that he will now become more active in this plot. Sherlock Granger’s role in stirring the pot was important, but now we’re down to the moral issues. With the facts coming into the open, none of them, especially Gil, can look away– this is no longer about Aa’s “inconsistent play.”

  11. g2 @7: “Yo, Ken” could simply reflect that Aaron (or maybe his mom) might originally be from Philly, yo.

  12. […] last panel as today’s first panel.  As pointed out in yesterday’s TWIM comments, since when did Ken and Mike ever really talk to Aaron beyond their amateur detective […]
