I Would Have Guessed That, At Some Point, A Permission Slip Of Some Sort Would Need To Have Been Signed


P1: Whatever Ms. Rizzkk is on probably needs to be dosed a little lower. The way she vacantly smiles while DD and (checks back to May 12th) Jay Bhatia discuss such weighty matters is disconcerting to say the least.

P2: Speaking of disconcerting, in a strip with a long history of poorly depicted high fives (seriously!), this one enters the canon and impels me to create a new category.

P3: Holy Shit! Someone tell Chief Linde to check the Bader family’s crawlspace!

Song that came to mind while writing today’s post:


  1. Pa Bader murdered the Thorp children… and Paul Strange.

  2. Del isn’t bored; he has an agenda that involves gaining DD’s trust so that she can start sneaking in contraband such as burner phones, her soiled underwear, candy bars, photos of DD in her softball uni or bathing suit, and other stuff that he can trade for smokes, favors, etc.

  3. P1: “They’ll stone you when you’re trying to type a scoop, they’ll stone you when your hair is dipped in poop… but i would not feel so all alone, EVERYBODY MUST GET STONED.”

    timbuys, I agree, the “Child Goes to Attica With My Permission” is stretching the nerves and what’s compounding the problem is the fraternity apparently started up in prison, Delta Omicron Cappa(modern Greek alphabet, you see). OH, THAT’S DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS. I should pay better attention to the typesetting.

    And Daffy, when she’s not tearing up the Conference with no practice(God, if she would divulge to me her secret), she’s continuing her CNN career, to boldly go where no man has gone before(that’s even her voice shrilling overpowering the rest of the “Star Trek” opening). as the Moody Blues said on “Seventh Sojourn”, isn’t life strange?

  4. “Yeah I’ll talk to you, but you’re gonna have to do something for me first!! Them perky, 17-year-old, never-before-squeezed fast food-fed titties with the inverted nipples you have imprisoned under that sports bra and sweater – You’re going to free them at once so the girls can finally breathe a little, and then you’re going to smoosh them up against the glass! Clear??”

  5. “The other victims” will of course be Ma Bader and Barely Bader. I doubt Del the Drunk has yet accepted that he is to blame for all this, and that when you bring about someone’s death through criminal negligence, your family’s suffering is on your tab too. There is a reason Barely is an asshole, and that’s him, with his back to us in p3. So spare me the weepy shit he is clearly about to try to sell to Dafne.

  6. Many states will not permit an unaccompanied minor to visit an inmate. And, just in case Dafne whips out her laptop tomorrow, you can count on computers, cell phones, cameras, and any other recording devices to be prohibited.

  7. I think Barry would be a turd even if he had the best dad in the world. Which there are many if the t shirts I’ve seen proclaiming said opinion are any indication.

  8. Jive Turkey may well be right. In grad school, one of my professors remarked that 90% of what we are is genetic, and that the other 90% is environmental.

  9. I couldnt resist changing the title of this post – all I could think of when I saw that every prisonor had ‘Doc”on their shirts was the famous line from Bugs Bunny —

  10. Actually, the fact that Jay and Dafne were able to connect at all is remarkable, considering they’re going for the high five across five feet of desk and directly above the head of their faculty adviser.
