This Week in Milford

November 30, 2019

Good Lord, I Can See the End from Here



Hey boys and girls! Let’s

Get into the holidays

With a few haiku!


Milford Star headline:

Ballard Resigns from School Board

by Marjie Ducey


Woodward and Bernstein

Got nothing on Marjie’s mad

Journalism skills


It didn’t hurt that

Chet Ballard was as subtle

As a heart attack


Wants to be called “Dad”

By his stepson Charlie, but

Tries a bit too hard


What was Chet thinking?

Charlie would play more if Chet

Outed the starter?


Chet thought he’d dish dirt

Forgot he left a keystroke trail

What a nincompoop


Better if he had

Taught Charlie not to fumble

The ball won’t drop itself


Guess what’s next, Chet? “It’s

Only going to get worse.”

Time for Divorce Court!



  1. Took her a while to get furious. Does she work? How’s she gonna support herself? I know women just like her who won’t divorce because they can’t or won’t support themselves. We’ll see if Rubin has taken a dose of realism yet.

  2. Jive Turkey makes valid points, but to set them aside for a moment, I still want to see her knee him in the balls.

  3. JT is right. Dishrag mom married this tool bag for a reason but it would definitely be a bonus to see her punch out his nuts like vagnova sez

  4. Uh oh. Jive Turkey and Vaganova weighed in with some heavy-duty comments. Better up my game today(ha ha).

    “Men who go through their wives’ lingerie and their life insurance policies and the women who love them only on the next Geraldo. Today at 4 here on WDIG-TV.”

    On a recent episode of Judge Judy

    “Your Honor, I just wanted him to call me ‘Dad’.”
    “Listen here, Mr. Cleaver, he was already calling you that. And it didn’t give you the right to steal his baseball card collection, Bucko.”

    I LOVED your insert today, Teenchy. Keep it coming.

  5. Nah, this isn’t headed to divorce. Wife whose name may not have been mentioned (or I forgot) is going to turn this into a revision of the power structure, and who could say anything but : Good on ya, sheila!

  6. […] This is one helluva Saturday cliffhanger, TWIMers. This has us on tenterhooks hookier than how the MHS valedictorian battle will shake out and more tentery than whether Chet Ballard would lose more than his seat on the school board. […]
