This Week in Milford

Stare Into The Granite Pit Of Bubbling Lava

Filed under: Boredom in Milford, huge earrings — nedryerson @ 5:44 am

I have to you all up on Saturday because I flaked, I spaced, I just totally forgot I said I was gonna fill in for my esteemed colleague. Then, it just didn’t feel right to post on a Sunday. So let’s just review this in one go.

It’s all Will Thayer and Corina doing some Hepburn and Tracy stuff. (No not the famous actors who traded witty dialog. I’m talking Dee Hepburn and Tracy Morgan.) Will begs off of some good natured ribbing from some rando named Gordon to stalk Corina because he’s into her thousand-yard-stare-I’m-walking-down-the-center-of-the-hallway-like-a-psychopath vibe and her commitment to a both straps backpack look.

Let’s face it. Will Thayer’s game is weak and if you bring that kind of trash into Corina’s house, you might as well show up with a red rubber nose because you’re gonna look like a clown. But Corina doesn’t seem to want to just punk Will. She seems to be trying to challenge his lazy proposition that football is the be all and end all of the social lives of Milford teams. Every hear of volleyball, sporto?

So will Will show for volleyball and then ask for a cookie for his troubles? Will Corina pants him on her turf to humiliate him and solidify her roastmaster status? Who knows where it will go, but I guess this dumb couple will be on center stage for the next few months.


  1. He should gleefully say “… fuckin’-A, sugar britches!…. I go to as many as I can….I just love watchin’ all the girls run around in those little shorts…I get a lot of mileage out of that …”. Take this mean bitch on at her own game. That’s what she wants anyway

  3. 1. As a leg man (specifically a thigh man), I used to LURVE ME some volleyball and field hockey games if I had nothing better to do after school… There was no better place for me to get my (REDACTED) on while they were playing because trying to (REDACTED) would have been way too obvious if I (REDACTED) while watching say, cheerleader practice. Short and curvy girls like Patty I enjoyed watching the most because they’d have fat thighs and a little jiggle as the moved and as I look back nearly 30 years later and recall those wonderful (REDACTED) and glorious (REDACTED) under their (REDACTED), and I would have chopped off my left (REDACTED) for the courage to creep into their postgame locker room and (REDACTED) the (REDACTED) while the girls (REDACTED) and for some reason I’m feeling hot and tingly all of a sudden so I’ll stop here because there are a lot of (REDACTED) on these here internets who might read this and get impure thoughts…

    2. If Peppermint Patty is *THIS* fucking insufferable at the school of her dreams, where she can be happy and play sports and pretend she has a future with the rest of the normals, she must have been positively radioactive back at Valley Mod??

    3. I *STILL* want to know exactly why Patty ended up at Valley Mod… Funny how quick the “My mom is a paranoid schizophrenic, an arsonist and possibly an attempted murderer, but don’t think for a minute I’m anything like my mom or that batshit insane psychopathy is in any way passed down genetically!” -discussion ended…

    4. So why haven’t Martinez L. Luna or that newspaper reporter who looks like the stereotypical librarian with that hidden slutty side been made aware of Patty yet, much less tried to interview her?

    5. If you reversed the genders in this conversation, it would be oh so obvious that Willie is cockblocking himself — Welding Patty’s legs shut before he even has his change for a brief and awkward adventure in the back of his mom’s Chevy Tahoe… So what’s it called when girls do this to themselves and talk themselves right out of a chance to get stretched out??

  4. 6. Of course in the old days, William wouldn’t have to open his mouth and confirm that he’s a socially inept prat… You know how football players back then let girls like Patty know they were interested in them? By slapping their ass as they walked by in the hallway!!

  5. In other news I saw that “Mark Trail” actually got refreshed with new art and updated to the 21st century?! Will wonders never cease?

    So when is it Gilberto’s turn for a facelift?

  6. So when is Hiawatha going to show up to claim his beloved, soft, sweet smelling backup mitt?

  7. To be fair to Thayer, I’m not sure anyone in this strip, including the ostensible volleyball players, has been to a volleyball game since Jamar Gaddis got caught pretending to go to one.

  8. Who the fuck is she to question this guy? How tf does she know if he went to any games? Geez… every time they show her, she becomes a bigger dick than the previous strip. It’s gettin old

  9. Frank, Couldn’t agree more.

    Geez, we went from a sibling rivalry at quarterback, now we’re jerking our emphasis on a diluted version of Oliver Wendell Thorp trying to hit on Jennifer. Ok, preppie, it was six. Whatever.

    And is it just me or has Will gone from a True Standish clone to another staid version of Barry Bader? It was six, Barry. Whatever.
