Knappe the Knife

Really not much to say about this strip today – Mikes mom is called, she basically sides with her son as being essentially a good kid, although she could get him to eat at home a little more and make sure he gets up early enough to do so, and the school says – sorry, but our policy is no knives period. End of discussion. And a likely suspension from the baseball team for a while.

Time for an oldie but goodie from our good friend Bobby Darin:




  1. Dumbass Gil just stands there dumbfounded. I’m glad you enjoyed Gino and the Goons, Ned. I know we also share a liking of the band Mudhoney. I’m sure The Goons will be touring soon when able and hope to see them when they come to Chicago.
    Another band you may enjoy I heard recently are called The Monsieurs. Couple songs to check out are “Headbanger” and “Kari Ann”. YOU ROCK ON !!

  2. Mikes mom is a clueless tool

  3. This may turn into an attack on Mfnrd school policy and on Dr Poil. But once again, matters such as this are often, in fact usually, a matter of state ed law, which the local district has no control over once it’s implemented. I agree, as I’ve said before, that zero tolerance policies are a terrible idea, but hope Whigrub has the right target in mind.

  4. I tried to find the hilarious old Steve Martin bit where he sang “Mack the Knife” on Saturday Night Live, making a little biting shark with his hand and moving little finger, but NBC has pretty much locked everything from the show away.
    Remember when you could access just about anything on the internet? Not so much anymore.

  5. GREAT IDEA, ROB!!!!!!! About as appropriate a song that’s going to come down the pipe, given the situation.

    And Momma Mayor is just a sitting duck for a David Allan Coe song where she tries to keep her son from being Dead Man Walking. Problem is, he’s done nothing to be Walking. Spreading peanut butter on his whole wheat got him the chair? Sheesh.

    Gil looks like one of the Pharisees in Jesus Christ Superstar HE IS DANN-GER-OUSSS

    Can’t wait for the sequel.

  6. Everyone agreed that Mike was done wrong but no one got too worked up about it because he was an asshole.
