This Week in Milford

I bet he can handle himself alright if he has to


Born in Puerto Rico

Raised in Georgia

My mama gave me the basic facts of life (of life…)


On top of all that, he played for the Nats.* Geez, hasn’t Jorge Padilla suffered enough?

Today’s inspiration:

*He could instead be the economist or the lawyer, which would be par for the Rubin course.



  1. I have relatives whose parents are from elsewhere but have lived in Georgia their whole lives and never picked up a southern accent.

  2. He looks like a small forward, but can he pat the peacock?

  3. There’s a fine line between “tasteful depiction of real-life tragedy” and “cheap exploitation for the sake of a plot point.” I think we know where Rubin will end up.

  4. Oh, this is a great start. A potential 5-star athlete with a face destined to show up in Dick Tracy’s Rogue Gallery. Heck, for what it’s worth, we can nestle EllipsoidLips somewhere between Flattop and The Mole, essentially creating a Trinity among the thugs Mr. Tracy has to deal with on a daily basis.
    And the combo Puerto Rican lineage who says “y’all” to the average Joe Blow on the street proves Thorpiverse will never run out of ideas even if he has to scrape the bottom of the pan to brainstorm innovative ways to keep our interest. No sense in allowing the constituents to fall asleep when attempting to break down the storyline.
    Sure, Colonel Harland Sanders moved to Georgia to start up new franchises when he met a Hispanic woman that tickled his fancy and wound up marrying her. Ellipsoi-(SMACK) Jorge was born, picked up Colonel Sanders’ accent as well as from the citizens of the Peach State, learned his recipes before Colonel Sanders and his beau had a falling-out and eventually divorced and now here we are in the present state of things. Finger-lickin’ good idea, Thorpiverse.
    Okay, so maybe that didn’t happen but I’m just trying to be on the same page with Thorpiverse. Gotta keep ’em hoppin’.

    After several panels of Coach Kaz lost in the Bermuda Triangle, Gil finally knocks on the door
    “Kaz, are you still in there?”
    “Yeah, Gil, I got diarrhea bad.”

    Gil one day in his office, while working out the kinks of the Veer, has to go bad after eating the tacos at the cafeteria and frantically opens the door
    “KAZ!!!!!!!! What the $&@#%€ are you DOING in here!!!!!!!!!”
    “Sorry, Gil, just thought I’d do some tricep dips to get the blood flowing before my next class.”

  5. Alternate Gilberto – “Hey, hey, HEY!! Kindly STFU about that Rice-and-Beaner’s sob story already! Let’s re-center this conversation back to *ME* and *MY* needs! You know I ain’t one of them New-Agey hoops coaches from Yurip or the Ar-jen-tyne who knows how to properly use a small, guard-heavy roster… Find something to inject this kid with so he’ll grow another eight inches overnight!”
