Downwardly mobile in what way?

Well gang, its back to black and white for the moment as I cant copy the Seattle Times strip for some odd reason. Sorry – I know you all miss that blue hair!

So Aaron finds Ma’s pills in her hiding place and reveals her to be a pathological liar as well as a drug abuser. I suppose the pills maybe help her to stay awake for long hours or whatever, but still no excuse to sacrifice that for her sons well-being.

Of course, she could ask Gil the same question in a way – his idea of coaching is to let someone else do all the work for free until the shit finally hits the fan, then he hastily cleans up all the months-old stench left behind from his own neglect of his team(s).

Again we waste all winter with this one issue and the girls team has been left invisible with nary a Hadley V. Baxendale around to stir up some more interesting trouble.

Finally – why does Mom need her glasses on her head sitting at home?  Cant anyone in this strip who wears glasses wear them ON THEIR FACE?? Only exception is of course Marjie Ducey; but everyone else feels the need to show off their frames as a head ornament.








  1. Mom Aardvark is caught as a lying sack of shit. Gil will soon have her straightemed out though.

  2. Once again, the Aaaaron who’s dead set against ratting out his mother ends up, ahem, ratting out his mother.

  3. For once the B&W brings out something better than color. In color, Ma Aardark looks almost sane in Panel 1.

  4. Oh, robmize, you know how to tug at the heart of us Hooligans. That picture of Loony Moony is priceless. In fact, he’s probably stoned with the same thing Mrs. Aardvark has stashed under the toilet.
    I can see Gil giving the same lecture to Moon Man:
    “Keith, some weeks Pete barely eats, I mean those eel pies will only carry him so far and then he runs out of juice while twirling that guitar into a dervish, ditto Roger with the mike. Roger could barely twirl a baton at Leeds and don’t even mention Newcastle. John broke down sustaining that bass chord on ‘Magic Bus’. Keith, while you’re in town, you need to head to the Milford Rehab Clinic and get your head straight. Your insurance should cover it so you’ll have no excuses. And DON’T drive your car into the swimming pool like you did the last time at the Milford Holiday Inn.”
    P1: It’s cool seeing Mrs. Aardvark doing Bobby Boris Pickett’s version of “The Monster Mash”.
