One Other Problem?

Filed under: ?, exposition comics, Gil Thorp, What the hell is going on here? — timbuys @ 8:36 am


Wait, the Van Aukens wanted a fresh start so they moved to the next tank town over which is actually closer to Ma Van Auken’s work?

Like many TWIM commenters, I’m not even sure what the heck Gil is talking to Dr. Pearl about. So far as we’ve seen, aside from losing control, not his temper mind you, while being the subject of a protest of sorts, Ryan has mostly been OK.

Except that…. there’s one other problem. Sure, why not, it’s mid-June, we have practically no feel for any of the character’s in this season’s plot nor any sense of what’s at stake, but let’s introduce another thread to the plot. As they say, tune in tomorrow…



  1. John S made a good point yesterday when he remarked that we have seen only one side of this story so far, and that there are usually two or more sides. Think we’re about to hear about another one?

  2. timbuys, my first remark did not appear right away, thus the repeat. Can you delete one or the other for me?

    Done! – TimP

  4. Today my attention is drawn to the cheese danish Dr. Pearl is wearing on her lapel.

  5. Is there a rule that every drawing of a school official has to show them holding a pencil or pen, even if there is no reason to think they are writing?

  6. We’ve put Daffy in the freezer for the moment(I’m assuming), leaving us hanging for the next bit of sleaze, the Volcano is getting silently heckled by Marcia Brady, and all we have to show for it is the revelation of what Whistler’s Mother looks like when she turns around. And she’s ready to leave in a few minutes for a funeral, given her garb, to pay her respects to the track guys who have attained Yeti status if they haven’t croaked.

    P3: “I have swelling of hemorrhoidal tissues. Man, they air up about the 3rd inning. I have some Preparation H. Will I get in trouble with the umpire if I go to the corner of the dugout and make an injection?”

  7. P1: As Jed Clampett walks in unexpectedly
    “Weeelllllll, doggy, Granny, I think ol’ Volcano oughta be plum ok, e’en if got his feelin’s hurt by his old girlfriend. Him and Jethro are playin’ pitch and catch in the backyard. I sent Elly May to gif ol’ Marcia Brady a good dressin’ down. I figger a man’s entitled ta a second chance and that girlie ain’t got no right ta be harassin’ him at the game with that milk carton of her’n. By the way, what ya so duded up fer? Ya got a date with Mr. Drysdale or sumthin’?”
