Oh for chrissakes let it go already!

The plot is now spinning its wheels as if it were stuck in the snow we’ve gotten over the past month. I get home from Muskegon Feb 1 and there’s a foot on the ground. Then last Monday we get 17 inches more. A reporter on the radio said his table in the yard had 35 inches of snow on it. Sheesh, if I stood on top of the snow piles at the bottom of my driveway I could see the top of my roof. My neighbors have 2 grills and furniture on their deck, and theyre all loaded with snow. Roofs are collapsing every day out here, and I’m praying one of those huge icicles doesnt slice me in half when I walk under em delivering packages to houses. The business strip mall I service is like an ice rink with inumerable hazards on the ground and above.At least the parking lot is clean. Ive got so much salt on the bottom of my shoes I could fill my shaker in the kitchen. My car was so dirty last week I couldnt find it in the parking lot at the grocery store. Hasnt been purple in a while. I went to the car wash and came out driving a block of ice on wheels.

And did I mention we hardly had anything in December and January? Ah, winter in the Midwest.

The 2 guys are engaged in a discussion connected to being late because the cop stopped him and yada yada yada. Yeah everything happens for a reason. But nothing has happened in a week in this plot, and that cop basically stopped Doug twice, and wasted Both of their time in the process. Is Tom on crutches? For a mild sprain? I’d say anything mild you just walk it off and limp around for a day or 2. I never once needed them and I’m sure I sprained my ankles half a dozen times here and there. So Im calling bullshit on the diagnosis.

And shouldnt Doug be ahead of Tom, holding the door for HIM, instead of vice versa? When anyone figures that out, let me know.


  1. So pud boy sprained an ankle. Bfd. You being pulled over twice caused it? Ok. Look at it this way top shelf gear head. If the Henry Jefferson look a like didn’t pull you over, you may have crashed into a tree. Make you feel better? Turd.

  2. Nothing has happened for a reason in this strip lately either. I’m sure it’s been mentioned before but I’ll say it again. This strip is like the old Seinfeld show… it’s a strip about nothing. The whole cop bit wasted the readers time too

  3. As I keep saying, franku2016, “Wake me if anything happens.”

  5. #1, if you severely sprain your ankle just running laps in the gym, how can you be expected to get through an actual game without getting injured? And don’t blame the floor either, I keep it in immaculate condition!

    #2, a friend of mine severely sprained her ankle about 2 weeks ago when she missed a stair and fell. She’s facing something like 8 weeks recovery. She got a boot, but does not need crutches. This wimp has a mild sprain that’s going to keep him out a week and he needs crutches? Surprised he isn’t renting a wheelchair.

  6. Dumb… Correlation does *NOT* equal causation

  7. Robmize, as if this was rocket science. You’ve been a coach too and I bet when a guy was dawdling around before he EVENTUALLY showed up for practice, you gave him zilch PT. Doug has his head so far up the muffler pipe, to paraphrase George Knox, he can’t even see the light of day.
    I LOVE what Vaganova said. Wake me when this snoozer comes to closure.
