Quitters never graduate they just mop floors.

Oh great – theyre actually moving the plot along! Dafne quits the paper a month after she graduates high school to end her paper career anyway…

and we’re having a Jagermeister instead of lemonade on the porch while watching .. running? Ah.. track and field.

Hey I heard Michael Phelps is racing a shark on Shark Week later this summer. I’m sure that’ll be more fun then whatever passes for a summer storyline in this strip.

Wonder who Mrs. Risqk will hire to replace her editor. My school , nobody quit the paper. It was the whole journalism class working on it, and you couldnt just drop out of the class unless you were either quitting high school or moving away.



  1. I wonder if this is the end of the spring arc, and we move right into the summer story. So many dead ends! What about the budding romance between the pitcher and the hurdler? Did the baseball team make the playdowns? And what about Naomi?

  2. Typical maddening conclusion. Daffy quits the paper, no investigation into what the kid did or did not do, it’s all over, let’s toast the next Carl Lewis, when does football camp begin?

  3. The rent-a-body concept is certainly getting around. Now Gil is hobnobbing with Mrs. Olson as she discusses the plot-for-the-day over a cup of Folger’s(“It’s the rrrrichest kind”). Mrs. Olson must be losing her sight in her twilight years. Just make sure you unplug her when you’re through, Gil. Oh, and don’t forget to change the cartridge.
    Later, Gil and Mimi are enjoying a Lowenbrau moment while lamenting a sulky sniveling brat, even as Carl Lewis(good one, Steve) snares another Gold in the 100 Meters. Gil is looking for inspiration SOMEWHERE. Whatever happened to the Gil who was the Pillar of Purpose who could wrap up a plot with some pithy maxim accompanied by a great deal of confidence, tinged with a hue of arrogance? Now, P3 is merely a continuation of Love Story and the exploits of Oliver after they’ve buried Jenny Cavilleri. This isn’t the Gil I know. Erich Segal is pushing Coach T.’s buttons(“Love is never leaving practice to pursue a fleeting rainbow that might have a pot of cast iron, all at the expense of your teammates”). I never thought I’d say it but I can’t wait for football.

  4. How does Gil know she’s talented? At anything? Mimi better have her write on the the infield dirt “I will not quit softball” 100 times.

  5. The plot’s not over, and neither are the two teams’ seasons. It’s only June! Let’s see… Ryan approaches Dafne, to try to explain the backstory, and, stressed out over the paper, she loses her temper and slaps him…

  6. I vote we edit the tags here to include “anatomically implausible.” Look at how Mimi’s feet are twisted relative to the rest of her body. Did Gil wrench her knees 90 degrees toward him? That would hurt! And how would she be able to lean in so closely to Gil with the rest of her body in that position?

    Oh, BTW, today’s post is up.

  7. […] *Because that worked out so well for Dafne Dafonte. […]
