This Week in Milford

Sister Act



Thank goodness we don’t have to listen to Kaz pretend to be a film buff to get a kid to play football anymore. That was getting awkward.

Know what else is gonna get awkward real fast? The secondary plot about Tiki Jansen. Besides not being a star and having a ratty orphan car, we didn’t know much about him until last week, when we learned he has “a slow sister problem.”  Rubin left it to interpretation then that Tiki’s sister might have a hard time getting ready for school. Now he drops broad hints that fifth-grader Angela might not be in the regular Milford school system.

How is Rubin gonna tie all these loose ends together?  Maybe Joe Bolek gets together with Tiki and Angela and they watch films of Nate Kaeding together, I dunno. (Nah, that makes no sense; Kaeding was a placekicker, not a punter.)  I shudder to think how this strip is gonna handle IEPs, Least Restrictive Environments, developmental pediatricians and all the baggage that comes with them. On that bright note, Happy Saturday, TWIMers!


  1. Note to self: stop trying to figure where these stories are going Skills.

  2. If there’s anything high school jocks like talking about more than the social relations of their grade school siblings, I haven’t heard of it. C’mon…

    The realistic response would be to rag on the guy with the shitty car who can’t even go anywhere because he is stuck running errands for his folks.

    Bonus question: Can we get a show of hands of those amongst us who speak to themselves in the first person plural in their internal monologues?

  3. Bolek should have said “ is your sister the one with the Mohawk?”
