This Week in Milford

June 7, 2019

I’m firing that pig!

Well so much for Animal Farm being a difference maker in this storyline. That pig must be rolling his eyes as he rolls in the mud reading this strip. We’re back down that long slippery slope to nothing. Its so bad you wonder whether this strip was intended to run a week ago, before the book assignment. And Rubin forgot about it and is just now running it, so out of sequence is the mindset of the characters. Maybe Molly threw in the towel about her synchronized skating  (and for that matter the softball team) and is just enjoying her role in life as the president of the Tool Cool Club. Who the hell is this committee anyway? I cant believe any high school male would get that excited about getting a button like that. And does Tyler even know about this TC shit? His first question should be — ‘What committee?’

Even Molly’s logic is flawed. Hey — writing screenplays is a BYPRODUCT of ones education, just like doing a science project is a byproduct of getting schooled in science and Applying that knowledge. So it aint too cool for school. TC buttons should go to kids who are so cocky they dont want to learn whats being taught and put the effort into the process. These 2 guys dont qualify at all– but Molly is such a fuckin dimwit she cant tell the difference. And she ordered more badges– I know the first batch was 50, so we will have 100 Milford students walking around campus on June 10 when everyone else is working on their summer tan, with these silly things that will be forgotton as soon as the next storyline commences. As some Spanish guy said -De Sooner De Better.


  1. Robmize, not only is everybody living happily ever after(kinda like Harry on his 8th Bud bottle during the 6th inning at Wrigley), but I learned a new word.

    He was geeking all the way to the outhouse.

    Steve Stone at Wrigley: “Harry, I don’t know how Sandberg geeked that line drive but a nice play to his left saves the inning and preserves that one run lead on the Phillies.”

    Sorry, Robmize, I’ll put a temporary geekment on the Cub jokes.

    Gil was tired of geekatory comments made at his hairdo and cut the Gordian knot by getting a Sergeant Carter Special at his barber’s place.

    Mimi has never geeked on Gil and has enjoyed over 30 years of blissful matrimony though Marty Moon geeked on her a couple of times.

    At the Mudlark Lake Resort
    “Marty, you call that your best? You must have sharpened it through the geek grinder.”

    Whoa, look at the time. I better cut out before the McD’s drive-thru geeks breakfast hours.

  2. Is that kid really that excited about getting a stupid-ass button or is it the fact that a girl is actually talking to him? And geeked out is correct…This school is full of geeks, coaches included

  3. and I would still like to see one of these kids tell Molly “FU…..go stick your damn button where the sun don’t shine”

  4. How did this not get a link for exploding eyeball? Looks like Tyler is experiencing that in panel one — although perhaps that is a locker with a starburst symbol above the air vents.

    tdrew, you probably already know this — though Harry Caray was promoting his beer sponsors on air, inside the broadcast booth he was actually drinking the hard stuff.

  5. Wow, Moon Mullins, thanks for sharing. I didn’t know that though when I think about it, it wouldn’t be surprising. Harry’s vices were well-documented(ha) but I do appreciate the info. Keep it comin’, My Man. Your shrewd insights are always welcome with me.
