Saying the Quiet Part Loud

Odds are you heard this phrase a lot in the news over the past year. It has its origins in an episode of The Simpsons I referenced once a couple of years ago.

Now in a heel turn the lies of which would have made Andre the Giant proud, Tessi says the quiet part loud.

To be honest I think Tessi’s remained quiet on the really quiet part. Using a guy’s car as an excuse to go out or not out with him might’ve been a thing back in 1958 when this strip started and it might still have been a thing for quite a few years after; now, not so much. It probably started becoming less of a thing after the OPEC embargo in 1973, but I could be wrong. In today’s world where fewer teens are getting drivers’ licenses, it’s become even less of a thing. Maybe that’s why girls don’t compete with Goats for Doug Guthrie.

I doubt it’s fear of being seen in Vic’s GMC (Grandpa Motors Corporation?) van – or of what could happen to her inside it – that keeps Tessi from accepting his invitation. But even Tessi can’t state the obvious and she can’t be entirely wrong in P2, either. Those dueling exploding eyes with a head bobble are part “Oh no she din’t!” and part “She says what we’re all thinking!” If any of those Lady Mudlarks’ eyes should not be exploding, it’s Corina’s. It’s impossible that a tank town like Milford didn’t get the news about her little ménage à trois with the dueling QBs last fall.

Tune in on Monday when we see how high off the floor and onto a horse Corina gets at that postgame pizza party. Let’s hope she takes that flyswatter off the pizza first. (What? You can’t tell me that’s a spatula!)


  1. Please refer to my remarks in the previous entry…

  2. MUT got right in P3…..”… she who smelt it dealt it…” so did hitorque… most teenage girls worth a shit wouldn’t be caught dead in some old POS van, car, pickup truck etc so I don’t see the ‘ fart in church’ expressions on those girls faces as realistic. Once again, Rubin has made a good story with possibilities too stupid to believe

  4. Good takes, Hitorque and Frank. Hitorque, you nailed it silly in your previous entry and enjoyed reading every word of it. Frank, you blew this farce to smithereens. Well one, both of you.

    Uh oh. Could another game with the Valley Modified Retreads be in the works now that Nick’s Pizza is back on the screen? Naturally, Tessi will teach some VM point guard wannabe how to shoot free throws and Corina will show basic box-out skills. Vic “He Works For Peanuts And Hot Dogs Even In Charity Events” Doucette will be at the mike. Fun times.
