This Week in Milford

Filed under: Boredom in Milford, freak hands — nedryerson @ 5:46 am


The Jansen’s are in a real pickle here. The School Board is having none of their residential ruse to keep Tiki from his daily ass poundings at the hands of New Thayer thugs. If I were the Jansens, I’d get an attorney to look at that letter from the School Board. I’m no lawyer, but I would think that an official letter seeking to codify “the spirit” of a rule is an open invitation to litigation.

Gee, I wonder if there’s a hot shot lawyer around whose firm told her to take it easy after winning a big case and who might not be willing to offer up a little pro bono representation to a fellow Mudlark. Keep in mind, a hot shot lawyer might suggest that any family that’s willing to pay rent on an apartment just to bend the rules might sufficient resources to pay for legal services to make sure the rules stay bent.

You know, I may have a history of using the Freak Hands tag here liberally, just to point out an overemphasis on hands. In Panel 2, for instance, hands are prominent and fill the panel, but they are well proportioned and not very freaky. However, Panel 3 is what I focused on today. Look at Mama Jansen holding that letter. It looks like the bottom of the piece of paper is resting in the crook of her thumb while the tip of her thumb is about a half to two thirds of the way up the page. Now that is freaky.


  1. The exposition box kinda undercuts the Jansens’ whole case. I mean, “At Tiki Jansen’s House in New Thayer…”

  2. So much for an interesting golf story and just WTF is the “spirit of the rule” supposed to mean? Either it’s a rule or it isn’t. If dumb-ass TeeKee and equally dumb mom is not in compliance with the district boundaries, no spirit needed. End of story. You can’t go to school here unless you pay tuition, skippy. Nice letter, Dr. Pearl. I agree….this is just a lead-in for HvB to show just what an ass-kickin’ lawyer she really is, even if her taste in men is questionable; of course, JQ probably pulls down several mill$ per year, so she could be a gold-digger too.

  3. You’d think the Milford School Board would retain a decent lawyer to review half-assed letters like this, probably written by ex-jocks with axes to grind against Gil. Say, whatever happened to the Foley Law Firm?

  4. Yeah, just about every strip that has hands depicted could be tagged Freak Hands so it definitely requires some discretion.

    Regardless, I really like how Tiki and his mom are working together to read this letter. How do you suppose Thomas sounded out those quotation marks?

  5. Enroll at Tank Town West. They’re Spirit of the Rule scoffers.
