Taking It Out On Madison

Filed under: Gil Thorp, Madison Time, Marjie Ducey, metapost — nedryerson @ 6:10 am


Don’t you just love it when the first panel on Monday morning basically repeats the the narrative of the last panel on Saturday? It’s okay. There’s lots of weekend in between, we’ve got plenty of space to tell the story and we need another gorgeous Pelwecki close-up. Those flowing locks, those Sharpied eyebrows, that generic blandness. It’s a gift, really.

Now that we’ve established Kevin’s propensity for asking a stupid question, it’s time for Gil to shine with a snappy answer (shout out to Mad magazine).

Kevin, your limited skill set has very low market value. If you can perform at a high level in other ways, I’ve yet to see it. Also, you’re just wandering around in school in a baseball uniform and that seems like a red flag. Madison? Oh yeah, it’s almost Madison time!

What was I just saying about how much space we have to tell this story? Sorry, no room for any actual Madison time*. Just time for a post game wrap up with Marjie. Do we know Marjie’s height? If Kevin is barely taller than Marjie and she’s anything under six feet, there’s yet another knock on Pelwecki’s recruiting appeal.

*On TWIM, there’s always room for Madison time. Also, in yet another attempt to show that we care just a little bit, I created a Madison Time tag and applied it retrospectively.





  1. Marjie’s wearing 2 inch heels with her dress. She has someplace better to be. Maybe a lukewarm date at Shultz’s Polynesian?

  2. Glad to see we got that girls’ sports thing out of our system with a healthy single panel. Now it’s back to… the most boring of our spring selection of plotlines, The ‘Weck’s Quest for a Home Run Record and a half-ride at some tank town college.

  3. Now, see, a tune like that helps me to understand the Soviet proposition that Western culture was indeed degenerate.

    That said, You’re L.o0Oking GO0o.d!

  4. This puts Pelwecki at 7 depicted home runs on the season. He’s halfway to tying Sharkey’s record.

  5. Without definite motion lines it looks like Gil’s making one of two obscene gestures at Pelwecki in P2: the “jerkoff” gesture or the infamous bras d’honneur.

  6. Good call, teenchy.

  8. Gil could use that motion in P2 when talking to or about most of the characters in this strip like MM, Daffy Dafuq, Dr. Perl, Bader, Bader’s dad, Bader’s mom, Ms. Douchey, Ms. Rizzick, Padilla girl, etc.

  9. I’m sorry; why isn’t Pelwecki going for a football scholarship instead? You know, the sport he’s much better at?

  10. Even Gilberto is telling Kevin to quit jerking him off with these College World Series fantasies…
