Kaiser Gilhelm Steps Up

Man, check out the withered arm on Gil! Is he ready to be Emperor of Germany or what? Actually, his forearm looks to be appropriately sized, but his bicep has shriveled considerably. Must be hard keeping his arm still above the elbow while he shoots pocket pool. That, or all the blood in his arm has traveled to his super engorged hand.

Now that Dr. Pearl’s involved, Pardon My Pranit is just steps away from taking the express bus to Valley Modified. He should’ve gone there first to find his hired muscle.

What’s today’s lesson, gentle readers? All together now: “Always get the money up front before you place someone else’s bets.” Sheesh, what an amateur.


  1. Curse you for making me look at panel 3, with that finger on Gil’s chin growing out of his neck.

  2. Why is this kid so scared shitless of his parents? It’s funny, because no mention, whatsoever, of them has been made up to this point, other than how PS and his brother got their names.

  3. 1. Like Pranit “Ace” Rothstein was ever getting his stupid money back anyway… Like I’ve been saying from the start, unless Pranit has been keeping detailed records or has some other kind of proof, his debtors can simply deny they ever asked him to place bets if they’re asked by Dr. Pearl…

    2. So what happened to the bets Pranit was making himself? I thought he was such a stone cold infallible sports prophet in picking winners that his earnings would easily outweigh the losses from his deadbeat classmates?

    2a. Regardless, will almost certainly nullify any winnings and ban his account when they discover it was created with a stolen (brother’s) identity, violating the TOS…

    3. And I don’t know who’s job it is to mete out justice, but someone has to let Lard Lad and Tennis Girlie and whoever else skipped out know that you can’t just renege on gambling losses, even if the person placing the bets for you was a passive-aggressive scrawny doormat…

  4. @franku2016 — Well, we know Pranit ain’t got no job so any money he had to gamble had to have regularly come from Mom and Dad, and God knows what fairy tales he’s been telling them up to this point…

  5. So, find some other goon out of school who’s not a pussboy candy ass narc and collect your money. Like your brother whose account you used. It’s out there now. Fuck it.
    Gil and Mrs Rayburn can piss up a rope. You may end up at Valley Modified but there’s still money owed to you. Get it!

  6. And this is where Pranit uses his brother’s credit card to buy a one-way ticket to Turkmenistan, where he will change his name and work as a sheep shearer.

  7. @Hitorque – No doubt fairy tales will ensue…PS is probably gonna’ go home and tell his parents that a couple of kids stole money from him and that coach Gil and Principal Pearl did absolutely nothing about it when they found out. He will also tell them that the gambling stuff is all bullshit that kids are making up.

  8. Philip, LMAO at your comment. What’s even funnier is that you may eventually be right, the way this farce is turning out. Well done.

    Hey, everybody, look on the bright side. We may get another scrimmage, this time between Valley Modified Basketball and the Mudlarks. And Tina Tennis and Larry Lardbutt will foot the bill for Nick’s Pizza and Jay’s Subs.
    Fun never stops around here.

  9. I like how it appears that Gil is finally taking charge of a serious situation, but he turns into a kindergartner mentality with his, “I’m telling Dr. Pearl on you!”

  11. @MopMan — Ironically, this is the first time in ages that Gilberto is doing the correct thing, which is to kick the matter up to his supervisor the principal… Because in real life believe me if it got out that Gilberto was told about these gambling and money lending shenanigans and he didn’t immediately inform the principal, his ass would be the first one fired for cause…

  13. […] *Gentle readers, never let it be said that your input falls on deaf ears. Today Gil refers to himself by a nickname used here and in just about every other Gil Thorp comments section known to man. (Me, I’m holding out for “Kaiser Gilhelm.”) […]
