These Cookies Are So Good I Could Eat One

Filed under: Gil Thorp — nedryerson @ 9:59 am


Well, Grandpa, somebody knows something about Chance, but nobody heard anything from ol’ Gil.

So Gil made the trip over to Grammy and Pap-Pap’s to tell them that somebody knows something but, beyond that, Gil can’t help them figure out what to do with this knowledge. That’s fantastic. Gil is a heckuva guy.

So how has grandson Chance been? You know how he is, says Gil. Oh brother. Is Gil fishing for more information or just trying to choke down that cookie and get the heck out of there?


  1. I would be appreciate if Whigham would draw the cookie crum spittle that we know damn well is coming out of Gil’s mouth.

  2. Gil actually more like a business manager for the team rather than an actual coach. Who’s ridin’ the zebras?…Kaz…Who’s callin’ the plays?…Kaz…Who’s makin’ player position decisions?…Kaz….Who’s playin’ private dick, tryin’ to figure out this nonsense with the anonymous phone call to Miss Douchey?…why Gil is, of course.

  3. Prediction: Chet, frustrated with Marjie’s inaction, tries to pass the explosive secret to Marty Moon. Six hours later, everyone knows about Chance’s anger management issues, and about Chet compromising classified information. Dr. Pearl suspends both Chance and Charlie until she can wrap her mind around the mess. Milford misses the playdowns, whatever those are.

  4. Philip has a good point. Chet moves incrementally, and having been tacitly rebuffed by Marjie, will probably turn to Mooty Marn. Chance’s grandparents (nobody’s talking about the implied backstory, the idea that Chance’s missing parents have something to do with his problems in primary school) will then retain Hadley v Baxendale to sue Chet on their grandson’s behalf, and Chet will be on the rollers. Charlie Roh will bake her a cake in gratitude for her “getting that shithead out of the house.”

  5. Ma and Pa Kettle are inquiring about Chance’s “demeanor” as if they expect him to snap at any moment. Maybe Chet is right???
