Gone Camping – Fill In the Details!

Filed under: Gil Thorp — robmize2013 @ 8:29 am

Hey gang- saving Teenchy the trouble of posting everything but feel free to analyze the strip today as Im heading to the Cheesehead State for kayaking and hiking! Enjoy that donut!


  1. Even though PP is telling Mimi in so many words not too get wrapped up in her business, this kind of thing for Mimi and Gil is like free crack for a crackhead. They won’t be able to not interfere and will get into PP’s biz no matter what she thinks. Back to the Burritos in P3. Mrs B looked almost hot a couple of days ago but today, she looks like Jimmy Durante. Wtf?

  2. 1. Gilbertina: “Okay fine, meeting over Little Miss Smartass… I offer to throw a dog a bone and pull some strings so you won’t ever have to worry about college tuition AND YOU GIVE ME THE FUCKING HIGH HAT?! I hope you enjoy renting out your snatch for a half-hour a time at that big truck stop off of I-70! Oh, and you owe me $1.50 for that ancient Tastykake, Bitch Pudding… A girl with your socio-economic challenges should know better than to bite the literal hand feeding her!”

    2. Rubin’s never going to tell us exactly what Patty did to end up at Valley Mod in the first place, is he?

    3. Seriously, I need some help here – Exactly what the hell does the mental health of Patty’s mom have to do with her going to college? Is she the primary caregiver or income earner? Unlikely. And what the hell is mom’s problem anyway? All Patty ever hinted at was there was an abusive marriage/boyfriend, mom started a fire and/or possibly tried to murder him, and mom spent some time in prison or a mental institution. Is mom high functioning? Low functioning? Paranoid schizophrenic? Catatonic? Is she violent? Is she an inherent danger to herself or others? Will she need 24-hour attention for the rest of her life? Because in that case, Patty isn’t a healthcare professional and her year-round sports are leaving mom unattended for a considerable chunk of the day…

    4. Seriously, I need some help here – Where is the Karinininininina family getting their support from? I’m guessing mom’s felony conviction and mental health past bar her from any meaningful employment besides hourly wage work and we all know damn well that Peppermint Patty ain’t got the “Working for tha man” type of disposition… Oh, well fuck me… I’ve just discovered the ONLY possibility that makes any sense, which is motherfucking Gilberto is secretly paying the rent on that nice, fully-furnished home to have a ringer like Peppermint Patty legally in his district, isn’t he?? That would definitely explain why Patty is so shady and vague about her background and makes it a point to never get too close to her fellow students and teammates… This explanation would also go a LONG way towards explaining #5, which is…

    5. Seriously, I need some help here – Why does Patty have such naked disdain and resentment for the institution of sport as a whole, despite being so naturally talented? Because let’s not mince words here; she *CLEARLY* transferred to Milford JUST TO PLAY SPORTS! Yet she plays sports like there’s some overbearing father who forced her into athletics, overcompensating for the fact that he wishes Patty was a son instead… She plays sports like she’s chasing the ghost of some mythical perfect-in-every-way older sibling who was a model student and athlete and tragically died young (i.e., the childhood of NBA Hall-of-Famer Jerry West)… I mean, she derives ZERO joy or fulfillment from her athletic successes… None of it means anything to her — The adrenaline rush of competition, the thrill of victory, the hunger to be better than the others, the comraderie of teammates, the overcoming of challenges, the elevated social status in school, or just the narcissistic pride of knowing her body is in peak physical conditioning… SO WHY DOES SHE FUCKING PLAY SINCE SHE GETS NOTHING OUT OF IT? Granted, the theory about resenting an overbearing father might have some meat on it, along with some kind of under-the-table Faustian bargain with Gilberto – But we know Rubin will never let his characters ever become, you know, interesting or whatever…

  3. I’m sure PP has the grades for JUCO. So let’s start there. If she doesn’t think more than a week ahead, then she hasn’t taken ACT or SAT. If they still take those nowadays.

  4. All I know is if her mom is that batshit, I sure wouldn’t eat any food she prepared, like brownies for example. And good point, you can’t do shit these day with just a HS education. Additional schooling is needed for just about everything. Wtf is PP gonna do? Like you said, will she be sellin blowies at the truck stop? I guess that would be one way to make her stfu

  6. Funny, Teenchy. Indeed, I’d love for Corina to pull an Aaron Rodgers and say she wants out of Milford. We should be that lucky.

  7. […] protestations that she doesn’t want or doesn’t intend to go to college (BTW, her eyes were blue when she made that statement; they’re brown now so since then she’s become full of […]
