This Week In Uncle Gary

Filed under: freak hands, google nonsense, Milford Idiots — nedryerson @ 9:09 am


The Uncle Gary Show continues at Gil Thorp. Now it is revealed that Uncle Gary is angling for some sort of warm, fuzzy “Support the Troops” flavor to his ersatz viral video. We get it. Uncle Gary is without scruples. He’s also without traditional elbows if you try to figure out how is hand is positioned that way in Panel 3.

I have nothing else to say about Uncle Gary. Please have fun talking about Uncle Gary in the comments, if you can bring yourself to.

I do feel bad about giving you loyal readers short shrift in “humorous content” so I decided, why not fall back on the old standby, Google Nonsense. So let’s see what comes up when you Google “Uncle Gary”.

We’ll start with this guy:
Interesting. Maybe Uncle Gary had a brief brush with fame that he’s trying to relive through Rick. Why he would bill himself as “Uncle Gary” is weird, but hey, it’s “The Nice Price Plus”. (I remember those stickers in the old chain record stores. I think it stood for “Here’s some back catalog crap that nobody will pay full price for”.)

Next up, we have this loving memorial to Uncle Gary:
Lots of warm memories. He and his lawnmowers are certainly missed.

And finally, we have Twitter’s @UncleGary4Real:
He looks like a lot of fun. Check out Uncle Gary’s twitter account…if you dare!



  1. That hand in P3 is actually “Thing” from the Addams Family, about to bitch slap Uncle Gary for any number of crimes against humanity in this plot line — which is a crime against humanity in its own right.

  2. Today’s post definitely made me laugh. Looks like anyone who goes by “Uncle Gary” is borderline certifiable.

    This story arc is making me laugh too, so I’ll give it credit for that. Rick’s affable naivety really does enhance Uncle Gerry Todd’s ridiculous sleezeball of a character. The conclusion is going to be underwhelming and the sports action sparse and unfulfilling, as it always is with this strip these days, but I can definitely get a kick out of the ride while it lasts.

  3. Okay, so let’s say Uncle Gary’s stooooooooopid plan actually works, and Rick singing the anthem becomes an Internet thing. What happens when Gary’s deception is revealed, and all those patriots become convinced that Rick is a fraud?

  4. You know, if WordPress and Jasbeattie finally get a DMCA takedown notice, I am going to be damned chagrined if it is because we violated Burt’s copyright. I’d better go cut another check to the EFF

  6. I agree with our writers today on their usual accurate take on the situation. It’s Andy Taylor and Opie meet The Da Vinci Code.
    “Annn-dy, I knew Otis the Drunk was hidin’ something in that moonshine jug of his. When Floyd the Barber kept smuggling rhubarb pie to his jail cell…”
    “Oh, Barney, that don’t mean he was giving him a code. We still got a squad car missing. And I ain’t seen Aunt Bee since Sunday.”
    “That’s the trouble with you, Andy. You don’t explore all the angles. What was Thelma Lou doing, hitching a ride with that priest?”
    “Barney, they were helping with the setup of the Mayberry Parade for this Saturday.”
    “Ha!!!!!! A perfect place for a spy to hang out. He hides under the Daughters of the American Revolution float, thinking nobody’s paying attention. BAM!!!!!!!!! He’s got that code-thingy safe with Otis the Drunk because nobody EVER looks in a Jim Beam jug then waits til the coast is clear to get the code out of Floyd’s scalp. Perfect place to transfer it, if you ask me.”
    “Oh, Barney” as the laugh track fades into a commercial.

  7. And maybe it’s just me, but not even the Hunchback of Notre Dame is THAT badly proportioned with his shoulder, armpit, right hand(I’m assuming), forearm, wrist in relation to the torso. I hope they don’t sell Ken and Barbie dolls this way. A kid pretending that Ken is eating a bowl of Wheaties with his supposed right appendage could be a little overwhelming, especially educationally. Or maybe Picasso is trying to draw a baboon, some lost art treasure. Maybe.

  8. UncleGary4Real was an extra in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, right?

  9. […] There’s no way I can follow that masterpiece by Ned yesterday. Simply magnificent. That said, much like dealing with a recalcitrant whitehead, […]
