At least there’s a hottie in this thread

… aand that would be in P2, but first we have an insensitive remark by Paul Beaudry in P1, basically saying good thing Barrys dad is safely in jail where he belongs. Who gives a crap about his life and how its affecting his family?

P2 has Dafne pondering – hey, maybe I care. But I dont care in the way I should – I care because I need to snoop around the Bader house as well as that smelly jail and get the lowdown on the whole backstory of the storyline we went through 2 years ago. And I’m gonna have my smokin hot body with my huge earrings and sleek hairstyle in as many panels as I can these next 2 months. And if that means Pelweki and his assinine launch angle crap is shoved down the nearest toilet asap, so be it. Matter of fact, I’d like to make the first flush. Hey, I’ll have one of the baseball players smash that bat he’s wielding right between his legs. Then when he’s explainin  that crappola it will come out about 3 octaves higher.

And who cares if we never play a ballgame between the boys and girls- between me and Marjie Ducey we can carry this strip to June by ourselves and actually let the readers enjoy themselves for a change. Who needs all these other douchbags?

I’m liking this storyline; we have a dumb male, and a smart female; and the dumb male will only be filler for the smart females adventures in discovering the real reasons for what happened that fateful night 2 years ago when Boo Radley became the sad answer to a trivia question.




  1. P3: “Welcome to Westworld, where NOTHING can go wrong.”
    Yul Brynner, with those steely eyes, comes up from behind and bludgeons Moose to death with an Easton S450.
    I guess that means we’ll never see the instructional videos. You’re on your own when learning launch angles.

  2. Rubin actually starts out well quite often. P2 today arouses reader curiosity, and he’s exploiting Kevin’s top character trait (visions of overnight stardom). It’s a pity he’ll completely lose the pace in a month.

  3. Upward angle of bat meets downward angle of pitch. So Pelwecki, tell us why don’t ya. What do you do when you face a submariner like Gene Garber? A rising fastball? Or simply when your timing is off? K

  4. This is sort of a reverse #MeToo moment. Yesterday, Boo Radley is presented as an afterthought. Today, the kids are curious about Barry’s dad when THEY JUST HEARD ABOUT A CLASSMATE AND FRIEND WHO DIED TRAGICALLY.

    I’m with Paul “Freckles” Beaudry here. Who cares about Barry’s dad? Are we going to have a storyline that reduces Boo to “awful thing that happened to Barry’s dad”? Bleugh.

  5. If Dafne goes exploring the backstory, I hope she goes to meet that bartender that over-served Mr. Bader back when we first met him. That bartender seemed like a genuinely nice guy, I’d like to know what he’s up to now. Perhaps he’s gotten a new job working for Mr. Bakst.

  6. Having the bat meet the ball at the same angle as the flight of the baseball is the hitting equivalent of “buy low, sell high.” It’s simply not the kind of thing you can consistently achieve in the fraction of a second you have to react to a pitch. I am sure that with a pitching machine delivering balls at the same angle for minutes on end, you could hit homers an average of 3.1 miles, but that’s not how baseball works.

  7. […] a whole bunch of Jay Bhatias out there. Not sure which one this will be, but given Dafne’s secret thoughts about the fate of Del Bader, maybe this Jay Bhatia will have some influence over that. Is he […]
