You Can’t Make Chicken Salad Out Of Boyd Spiller

We’re deep in “teenagers are dumb and do dumb things” territory so I guess we have no choice but to suspend disbelief and see how this unfolds. Why Tevin feels the need to not only tolerate Boyd’s taunts but also encourage his schemes to fix a problem that doesn’t exist is beyond me.

What exactly is the goal of Spiller’s hypnosis? To get Tevin to tuck the ball and run whenever he sees an open receiver? Or to see nothing, thanks to the retinal damage done by staring at Boyd’s MagLite? Better to squawk like a chicken than squeal like a pig, which is what I think Boyd’s teammates are gonna do to him after this little parlor trick backfires.

Pantheon of Hair tag today for Tevin, whose ‘do is starting to reach Esquerita heights. Don’t know who Esquerita was? Time to find out!


  1. So, last season, coach dipshit insisted on total control of the QB position and rotating 2 nitwits in and out of games to the point of making them hold hands and sit together wherever they went. This season though, he’s letting this bullshit linger like a bad stomach ulcer. However, in his defense, Mimi hasn’t made any off-hand comments about Tevin or BS, so he’s probably clueless as ever about the team dynamic. Rubin has somehow managed to make me feel sleepy though without the swinging pocket watch.

  2. No I never heard of Esquerita, teenchy. Sounds pretty good. Thanks.

  4. So Tevin turned down the exciting Madden 2022 party, but gladly shows up to volunteer to be fake hypnotized to solve a non-existent problem. Yeah, makes sense as usual.

  5. …cause a penlight is such an unusual thing to have around the house?

  6. 1. It’s the education about esoteric music that I’d never normally listen to that keeps me coming back…

    2. True story: I had my first ever colonoscopy today and it was less creepy than this setup I’m seeing now…

    3. It’s funny because Tevin has never seen a penlight before…

    4. This is either about to be the grandaddy of all pranks or Tevin is going to wake up next morning under a highway overpass wearing a fur suit while heavily drugged and/or shall we say, “molested”…
    4. It’s funny because this strip

  7. Hitorque, Good for you. I had a colonoscopy a few days ago and can totally relate. And you’re right about the comparison but I want to add this being no different than Eddie Haskell performing the same stunt with the same tools and the same mentality. Can’t wait for the ending. Congratulations again on making it through, My Man.

  8. […] Pantheon of Hair trifecta today with Tevin’s (that’s still Tevin, innit?) Esquerita ‘do, Pranit rocking the Bobby Bittman and Trevor Lawrence-looking guy looking all Trevor Lawrence-y. […]
