Tell Chris To Watch His Noggin!

Filed under: Chunky Bracelets, general nonsense, Gil Thorp — nedryerson @ 4:33 am


Still no word on who this administrative lady is chatting with Gil in the teacher’s lounge about student athlete’s GPAs. We know she’s a witty one, though. Upside the noggin with a Reebok? That’s some colorful slang. Mystery Admin is also quite dialed in to happenings in the student sphere at MHS. She knows all about Alexa’s pursuit of the valedictorian seat as well as Alexa’s potential for footwear assault. One might speculate that there is some kind of gambling going on based on the student rankings and that Miss Mystery is the one who has “hot tips” gleaned from skulking in the hallways, eavesdropping and/or monitoring social media accounts. She’s a Fantasy GPA Insider! Subscribe to her newsletter if you want any chance at taking the trophy.



  1. Oh, gawd, it IS a romance plot.

  4. Gil: “Oh, she wouldn’t do anything like that. In fact, she’s working on an extra credit biochemistry project to pull her GPA up”.
    Admin lady: “Great! What’s she doing?”
    Gil: “Synthesizing boomslang venom”.

  5. I like the little head bobble by Gil in the third panel as he realizes that conversations like this is exactly why he drinks his ‘coffee’ in his office and not the teachers’ lounge.

  7. What fuckin’ year is this? Reebok lost the “Basketball Shoe Wars” a generation ago!! I know because I once fought on the frontlines for the old “lost cause”….

  8. Hitorque, encore une fois– Mfnrd is 1959 with cell phones. Damn, I’m proud to have coined that.

  9. […] On to our usual underwhelming little Saturday cliffhanger. This is gonna end up like that old Warner Brothers cartoon The Dover Boys at Pimento University where the goofy running gag background character ends up with the girl, isn’t it? Phoebe will be your valedictorian without ever having to go upside anyone’s noggin. […]
