This Week in Milford

Hip Dysplasia, Something Terrible

Today we get just a tiny glimpse at Mimi’s approach to coaching volleyball. She’s very focused on the arrangement of spectators and prefers all twelve people at the game to sit in a tight group. Beyond that, we’re all still in the dark.

It’s a good thing Gil has sway over everything that everyone at Milford High does and that Mimi can feed him chocolate ice cream and engage him in her seating arrangement dilemma. Of course ol’ Gil’s gonna do something about it. Umm, what the hell is up with Gil and Mimi’s legs in panel one? Their position relative to their respective torsos is insane.

I don’t know who the students in panel 3 are. I don’t know what gender they are. A day in Milford doesn’t go by without somebody doing something terrible. This is probably about seating in the gym, but what do these randos have to do with it?


  1. Panel 3 is the RBs, Chance (or maybe Chase, I’m not Billy) & Charlie. The only sane ones on the team, so Gil seems to be taking the indirect approach.

  2. I think the middle knee might be Gil’s with a color error.

  3. Gilberto didn’t really call his players out of class just to discuss this bullshit, did he??

  4. @hitorque…oh, you know he did. MHS needs more teachers like Rooney who can Gil in so many words that “…hey motherfucker!…I don’t pull students out of your football practices or driver’s ed. classes for some idiotic probing conversation, so don’t be pullin’ them out of mine..”

  5. Reductive observer that I am, I assumed the putative witnesses in panel 3 were the two quarterbacks. On second look, I think downpuppy is right, that they are the gold dust twins, Macy and Roh. But the timing is odd, unless Mimi’s observation was a final straw– surely Gil is aware of the problem.

  6. Good thing that there’s stuff like ice cream and lemonade, else Gil and Mimi might never talk

  7. Oh boy, what we need, another cheap Nancy Drew Mystery

    “…if Bugs Meany had been telling the truth, his whole gang of deadbeats and losers would have been sitting in the same bleachers. Trapped in his own lies and stale popcorn, Bugs confessed. His deadbeats returned the volleyballs the next day…”

  8. Encyclopedia Brown & the Mystery of Corina’s Appeal?
    Leroy must have hit puberty.

  9. Another non story. Plenty of cock knockers on my hs football team I wouldn’t hang with. Piss up a rope, Gil! You turd.

  10. “…excuse me, Honey, let me put my femur back in its socket. Now what were you saying…”
