“*69” or “Marjie Got Her Crank Yanked”


Poor Marjie. Got a voicemail from a mysterious caller and can’t figure out who it was. If only there was some kind of technology that would allow someone to see who called them… technology that existed oh, say, a quarter of a century ago.

Really, does anyone think Chet has the wherewithal to use caller ID spoofing? He doesn’t even have the self-awareness to not blurt out broad hints that he knows Chance’s backstory within earshot of anyone who could make those hints have consequences.

Give Marjie some credit, though: she knew Gil thought Chet was the prank caller without him ever saying so. (Oh, wait, that’s called exposition.) As for Gil’s curiosity, nothing a little trip to the weight room showers faculty lounge wouldn’t fix. Time to put ol’ beardo Ballard on the defensive and start him on down the path off the school board and into the family doghouse.

Today’s post has an alternate title in homage to Rocky and Bullwinkle.


  1. Teenchy,
    Tune in next episode for “Loose Beards Sink Ships” or “Chance and Natasha and a Dog Named Boris”.
    You da Man, My Man. Great title.

  3. Even if Gil were to give the nod to Charlie just to watch him fumble it up, Chet McDouche would still blame Gil for starting Chance in the first. No pleasing a loudmouth drunk idiot like Chet, ever. Time for dishrag mom to send him packin’
