That’s Not How Journalism Works


Looks like we’re tying up loose ends left and right. Let’s have at it:

P1: How often have you high-fived someone across your body? Carrie’s pose is just all wrong.

P2: If DD can find a few experts she might get this onto some obscure online content mill. “Two Milford girls discovered this one weird trick that’s revolutionizing the Billion dollar anger management industry!”

P3: Did Alison Bechdel key Rubin’s car or what?



  1. At this glacial pace baseball should wrap just in time for school to begin.

  2. A lot of parity in the Valley Conference if the Mudlarks are in contention after losing 3-4 conference games. That is, of course, more than the total number of softball games we’ve seen this season.

  3. billytheskink, I think we’ve seen more softball PRACTICES than we have softball GAMES and, even then, DD walked out of one and tanked another. But leave it Thorpiverse to still have the Mudlarks in contention for the title a week before football two-a-days commence.
    And then there’s Ryan a/k/a The Volcano. If they’re going to turn this into a semi-Dean Koontz thriller, at least don’t leave one of the main characters out to dry. Right now, I’ll bet he’s lodged in the storyline of The Little Train That Could. He’s been showing up about as many times as DD at softball practices.

  4. “Ms. Rizk wants me back at the Trumpet, because there’s nobody else who wants to write for it.”

    Also, yeah, sell it to a magazine. Baylor U’s alumni magazine might be interested; they’re always in need of excuses for their miscreant athletes.

  5. I guess the same fictional universe that accepted the “Welcome Back, Carter” reality show can swallow a feature magazine article about a 17-year-old’s first experience with anger.

  6. Oh, well, at least there’s a ballgame in the immediate offing. Consider too that if the Central City girls show up, Daffy’s consciousness has already been raised. There’s also the possibility– one I have entertained all along– that Daffy and Ryan may “find each other.” Her rooting for him at the game could set things in motion. Think it’s safe to say the track kids were plot devices we have seen the last of?

  7. I have a terrible feeling that if the boys do “catch Jefferson,” they will end up playing Central for the belt, with all that will bring. The slow spring plot may have just got a lot longer.

  9. […] Panel 3: I wouldn’t even know who Ed Sheeran is if not for online discussion of his recent appearance in a certain popular fantasy TV show. That aside, I have absolutely no clue who these two young Lady Mudlarks are, but there appearance today does lend support to my theory that Alison Bechdel really ticked Rubin off at some point. […]
