Ya think that librarian should be history?

The level of realism in this strip keeps hitting new lows. Can you imagine a librarian asking a question like that?

The only conversation I ever had with librarians involved either checking out books, donating magazines and needing a slip for charity purposes, and the occasional question about finding something in the stacks. They never had the first word. I would be so shocked at such a question I would report her to the library board. Oh yeah, Zanes running for a seat. Then just tell her to MYOFB (mind your own fuckin business)

We then have another unexplainable chain of events. If Zane texted Katy before his convo with the librarian, why doesnt he know already if she will be joining him in the history section? ( goddammit why the hell is the librarian snooping around checking on just 2 people in 1 section? Do your own job lady!) And you (yeah you Zane) dont have to elaborate about her being mad at you. Just say “I prefer not to answer that thank you” So its just one uncomfortable moment after another today. Thanks Rubin. Nothing like kicking off your holiday weekend analyzing this pile of manure.

I think Mr. Brito has his fingers all over this, trying to scare Zane off the election ballot. He filled the librarian in on everything and she now subtlety is trying to scare him away from the library with her inane comments. You can fly solo all the way to the unemployment office Miss Librarian.

Nothing like the good guy in the strip getting treated like dirt.


  1. Congrats, robmize! The only person in the world who didn’t read this as Ms. Wampfler making a pass at Zane.

  2. 1. Why is this librarian all up in folks’ business? That’s Peppermint Patty’s job!

    1a. Why is Kay Brito even upset? What the fuckin’ hell does she care who fills out an application for the library board?

    2. Why is Zane fingering his girlfriend and squeezing her nips hard enough for the rest of the library to hear and/or smell?

    3. So this conversation tells me that Miss Librarian is a freaknasty (Rubin loves his moldy character cliches, doesn’t he?) who not only likes to watch/listen to Kay getting her rocks off, she’s offering Zane an outlet to release his pent-up teenage lewd urges… Well Zane, let me tell you how a bulldog would handle this situation….

  3. I agree with Downpuppy. It’s the only rational explanation for Ms Wampfler’s questions, and thus, in the Thorpiverse, entirely out of the question.

  4. Yeah Zane. Tell granny clampett to fuck herself and then tell Katy the same thing. Grow a pair son. Don’t be such a pushover…. ‘Ya think?’

  5. Speaking of Granny Clampett, if you want to feel old, realize that when Irene Ryan first started playing Granny she was 59.

    One more Beverly Hillbillies reference: when I was in grade school, and that show was still on in prime time, an obnoxious bully kid in our class liked to ask kids what was Jed’s last name. When you’d answer “Clampett”, he’d say OK and then “clamp it”, clamping his hands hard around your crotch.

    And kids today think they have it tough.

  6. “Granny Clampett” is a bit harsh? Yeah the librarian isn’t the nubile filthy little horny sex machine that Kay Brito is, but a little makeup, lets her hair down, and she can get it — Nevermind the fact that the librarian has probably honed certain ‘skillsets’ in her experience that Kay can’t even imagine… Ladies who are game for getting hot and heavy in semi-public places are keepers. Even moreso women who get down in the workplace… These are rare gems and Zane would be a fool not to see this for the opportunity it is… Who knows? Maybe if he gives it to her hard enough and often enough she might “lose” some of Abel Brito’s application paperwork…

  7. I think the librarian is Maureen from the Diner. She’ll go wherever she has to to keep tabs on the personal lives of kids.

  8. It would’ve been all I could do to not start this post with “Dear Penthouse…” so kudos to you, Rob.

    I thought we had established that the role of Daisy Moses a/k/a Granny in this strip was being played by Dr. Pearl?

  9. […] one of our nagging questions of how Milford Library Board members are chosen) and yet he now finds “that cute girl he makes out with in the history section” may be history to him. Katy knows Zane’s situation, knows her old man’s hard-on against […]
