Bonk, Bonk on the Head, Alexa!


Alexa Watson is not only smart and tragically accomplished, she likes to reenact old Star Trek episodes. At 6’1″ and ripped, she looks to be this year’s Kenzie Hanley. Will she brk some jaws in the process? Maybe after one too many jokes about her name.

We’ve seen that swoony pose on Phoebe Keener before but not paired with, apparently, a sundial for a nose.

metapost: Apologies for the late post. Caught a redeye from the Thorpiverse, literally; bad weather on both ends put me home just before sunrise. Haven’t slept in over 24 hours so this post may reflect that.


  1. Sometimes, when I experience such travel woes myself, I become ‘overtired’ and have trouble falling asleep. If you have this problem, just go back and read a few recent GT stories, and you will be out in no time.

  2. That “Bonk Bonk on the head” bit from Star Trek was fresh in my mind due to the recent passing of Michael J. Pollard.

  4. They need to add a Bat-man -type sound graphic like “BONK’ or ‘DINK’ or ‘BOINGGGGGG”

  5. Teenchy, hope you are getting caught up on rest.

    I hadn’t thought of Kenzie Hanley, but that’s a good point. “You woke my yaw” is still one of my favorite bits of Mfnrd (actually Central City) dialogue. Following a Gil Thorp plot is kind of like an addiction: you know it’s going to end anticlimactically but you can’t stop. This time we at least have an intriguing character to follow.

  7. I was in Grand Rapids once on business in December. The temperature never rose above zero Fahrenheit the entire week I was there. I essentially never lefft the really nice JW Marriott there built with DeVos money.

    Minus point: The tape holding up the sign in P3. This isn’t Westview High!

  8. […] School, Gil really doesn’t give a crap about athlete safety. Some kid in a rec league gets bonked on the head wearing a hand-me-down Mudlark helmet and gets the brain damage? Not his problem anymore, man. Just […]
