This Week in Milford

Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except Kelly and Her Monkey


People have spoken

The constraint will be applied

Through football season


I was hoping for

More about one of the best

Anti-war films ever made


Like whether Gil

Would kill every tenth Mudlark

To improve morale


Maybe Joe Bolek

Will desert the football team

Become private dick


Or realize

That his teammate’s personal

Life’s not his business


But no! Quick cut to

Coach Kaz’s private dojo

Where he flips burgers



Of his cineastic skill

Does not become him


Kaz could just fake it

IMDB is your friend

Brush up on Kubrick


What Kelly Krystek

Does with Kaz’s organ is

Not for family strip


Well there you have it

The first of several haiku

In the near future


I must admit

Downpuppy’s sonnet option

Piques my interest





  1. Penning a sonnet
    I had an epiphany:
    It’s way too much work

    Now Kaz & Kelly
    Living in domestic bliss
    Will they get a plot?

  2. Are we returning to the punter plot? Which we did nothing with the first time? But now, we’ll have the unendurable dramatic tension of Kaz trying to keep Bolek on the team even though Kaz doesn’t know all the “Elevator to the Gallows” trivia.

  3. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Teenchy, My Man, I’ll have some haiku in the future as I like your versions, and the TWIMers versions in general, but GOTTA HAND IT TO YA, dipping into White Album territory absolutely MANGLES this plot. You come through again, Mt Friend.

    And while appreciate the diversion to the Cooking Channel, I’m sure Kelly can low-burn a pot roast ‘n’ veggies on the Crock Pot(“careful not to spend too much time at the Bridge Club, check in every 3-4 hours”) with the best of ’em but, honestly Rachel Ray and the VideoHound are appearing more on the scene than football . I’ll take Howard Cosell’s occasional inane commentary on Monday Night Football, accompanied by Frank Gifford and Dandy Don “Turn Out The Lights, The Party’s Over” Meredith, over “The Chopping Block” in disguise.

    Gil, you’ve been chopped.

  4. I think Kaz should be a little less worried about organ grinding and more concerned about what Kelly plans on doing with that straight razor in panel 3. Fully unfolded, too! You didn’t think that was her thumb, did you?

    I also like that Kelly made the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Dinner for both of them — a big bowl of popcorn, and buttered toast.

  5. Oh great. We reach a point of dramatic tension (well, what passes for “dramatic tension” in these parts) in the Tiki storyline, so NOW it’s time to pivot back to the cineaste punter?

    And the big reveal is that Meathead Kaz doesn’t really know anything about movies that don’t involve superheroes or blazing firearms? Shocked. I am shocked.

  6. […] Grinding his organ […]
