Shaken And Half Baked

Filed under: Prairie Style Windows, What the hell is going on here? — nedryerson @ 3:57 am


Like some of our readers, I thought the last few strips were going to bring us to a Dafne penned piece about “What It’s Like To Be Seen As An Abuser Based On Rumor And Innuendo”. But that’s not the piece Dafne wrote. She wrote a piece about “What It’s Like To Want To Clock A Guy”. Ms. Rizk thinks it’s excellent, but what relevance does it have?

On second reading, it gets even more muddy. She didn’t truly want to punch him, but she understood the impulse? How did she arrive at this understanding?




  1. Now that everybody, including Dafne, has somehow concluded that Ryan was in fact innocent, just a reminder that the only “evidence” we have for Ryan’s innocence is his own word and that of his parents. And their word that the girl recanted.

    Even if he is telling the truth, well, there’s a big difference between feeling an impulse and acting on it. Especially when you’re a big brawny sports star and the other party is smaller and weaker. Just ask Ray Rice. A guy like Ryan can do grievous bodily harm in an instant, and has a responsibility to keep his impulses in check.

  2. Just get back to the ball field or onto the golf course, this plot has spent three months going nowhere.

  3. Didn’t Gil threaten to throw Ryan out of the county or something? Have that man arrested! He has loads of priors.

  4. Hoo Boy, all righty then, so now we’re getting what is turning out to be a sudden, unintentional psychological thriller. She admits to landing a haymaker on our hapless antihero and as a result winds up in the skin of The Volcano. While Granny-at-33 politely but firmly cuts off the story at the pass, we’re to admire Daffy Duck for walking 2 weeks in another man’s moccasins.
    BUT HELLO THORPIVERSE THIS IS A SPORTS STRIP I’m like billytheskink et al, leave the Single White Female in the kitchen of Apartment 3-G. It’s like “The Last Picture Show”, we’re spending more time in bed than on the football field. No wonder why DD couldn’t field a chip shot at practice the other day. As long as school is being held over in mid-July, can Thorpiverse at least refresh our memory on what an umpire looks like? Is that too much to ask?
