This Week in Milford

Get Started, Start a Fire

A bit of revisionist history to start today’s strip. Bonfires before the football season opener are a Milford tradition except when they’re not. As for that “clobbering,” a 14-7 win is hardly Ben Grimm worthy, and there have been years when Oakwood has beaten Milford, most recently in 2018 when Tod Andrews sneakily called time out to negate a blocked field goal. There hasn’t been a Mudlark blowout of the Owls in some time, at least not since 2014. (This is where I place a call to the Milford SID to confirm; billy, you there?)

Good call on Corina’s part, pointing out how girls’ sports take a back seat in Milford. Fight the patriarchy, girl!

Looks like the student body is gonna sacrifice those two dueling dipshits at quarterback to ensure a Mudlark victory. Why else would they be atop some wooden scaffolding? To scope out girls, of course. Which girls? Not Becca Ramirez, she’s old news. What about that little fire hydrant shaped girl? She’s new around here. Let’s see those two losers start another competition – this time, for Corina. Then the sparks should fly.


  1. Rubin has a thang for short haired girls. Boo, a homecoming queen a few years back, not Corinna. Weird, since they all look the same as the long haired except sawed off. In any event, Hiawatha is due soon to claim what is his by claim of blood & tribal law. Arrrrrroooooou!

  2. Is Corina ever not a fuckin smart ass? I wish some other girl would give her a knuckle sandwich. That would be super.

  3. Yeah dude! Hook ‘em horns! Or maybe he thinks AC/DC cover band Bonfire is gonna show up. The volleyball team? I’m not gonna say nobody gives a fuck, but not enough do. Maybe 500 less that care about the football team. Why do you care what’s her name? Just go out and set, dig or whatever the hell you’re gonna do. Maybe grab some bench and make a voodoo doll of the one who’s playing in front of you. I don’t know?

  4. P 4: “… no, dumb ass, not her….I mean who’s the dude she’s talkin to?…”

  5. Teenchy, Thanks for the pingbacks. Your vote of confidence means the world to me. I can only pass it along but I will, believe me. I hope your recovery is going well. I love your incisive sense of humor. You da Man.

    Aw, C’mon, Corina. Your wet-blanket attitude is beginning to wear thin. We have to put up with 2-3 more months of your sardonic tone when we aren’t stomaching The Two Stooges who might be shifting gears and introducing another non-sequitur? As most of you know, I’m a Western buff and it’s like the Jake Logan Western Series where the hero, Slocum, is grabbing some sassy babe when he’s not in a gunfighter’s duel with Jesse James, all on the front cover. Louis L’Amour writing Harlequin Romances, just can’t wait for the sequel.
    Darn, I’m beginning to sound like Corinavirus. Imagine that.
