Martys a bum, bar none.

Another week rolls by and its Marty and Gil meeting in a bar. I have to say, I’ve never seen a bar drawn in all my years of reading this strip, and here the waitress is drawn with an outfit more suited to IHOP. The bars I go to they dress way more casual/ skimpy. I was with a group on St. Patricks Day a few years ago and we got kicked out of Tilted Kilt because there was a pay per view fight on and they didnt think we were spending enough money. Now THOSE are outfits I approve of.

Now we have this meeting. How many days for this? Bar closes at 2am so I’m sure they’ll use it all. What else can they say besides – I’m a dickwad, yes you are, stop those kids from screwing up my broadcast, I’m a coach not a policeman (or so I say) etc.

Dont expect to see another game for a few days as these 2 hash out not only the current predicament but all the underlying tension of their 50-year relationship. Again, we’ve forgotton completely about the whole issue in the first place, which was Marty taking liberties with Chicos name (remember Chico kids??)

Anyway, drinks are on me. Cheers!




  1. That’s no bar Gil. As if you didn’t know. You belly up to a bar you turd! You see people like Mickey Rourke’s character in “Barfly” in a bar. Or Marty playing video poker in a bar. IHOP indeed it looks more like. Now go get your candy ass self a latte da , you pud!

  2. “But does it have to be in a bar? I mean, I have a reputation to think of, and that’s why I do all my drinking on the sly. Get yourself a flask, Marty. Develop a taste for Long Island Iced Tea (Hold the tea, please, Mimi). Load up that opaque travel mug you’ve always got by your side. Drink silent, drink deep.”

  4. It’s HAPPY HOUR!!!!!!!! Where the drinks are 1/2 off and you can tell the bartender your most intimate problems, no matter how sleazy.
    WAIT!!!!! He’s not around? And the IHOP waitress is busy serving marinaded Belgian waffles with a side order of 2% milk. No problem, Gil just walked in the door, proving once again after 60 years on the job that he’ll rescue any plot from extinction. If he’d throw a lifeline to the one man who has trashed him for eons, and now is getting drunk from his Thermos cup in the bargain, by gum Gil would get his hands slimy dragging this storyline out of the cesspool. This Bud’s for you, Gil.

  5. The waitress is on loan from Schultz’s Polynesian Garden, Most likely, rob, the drinks soon will be on you.
