This Week in Milford

“Know who else cleans and jerks? My mom!”

Finally, a strip we can snark on! The last several strips have been straight up serious as they brought to attention a serious imbalance on the benches and sidelines and in the dugouts. I was halfway expecting acknowledgement that Gil was doing his part by bringing in Emmett Tays, but then he’d have to sheepishly acknowledge that Emmett was getting paid half of what Kaz was getting paid – and that half of nothing is nothing. Was Kaz really volunteering all these years?

Time for the big Milford Lift-A-Thon! Gil has been putting in all the hard work while Mimi’s been off polishing her tonsils golf game. Nice to see he’s been spreading the weight around. For a moment there I thought that big hand was his, not Mimi’s, and that he’d been going at it Quagmire style while she was in Arizona.

What could go wrong here? Which one of Gil’s basketball players will suffer a season-ending injury during this fiasco? How stripped down and greased up will Luke Martinez be when he makes his grand entrance? We’ll see soon enough. In the meantime, I’m content to drop another Regular Show reference and see if Mimi plays Starla to Gil’s Muscle Man.



  1. I can’t wait to see Luke come barging in wearing his little wrestling tights, and sporting a lifting belt with “World’s Greatest” embossed on the back of it, lifting shoes, wrist and knee wraps, chalk bucket, and a handout with his list of sports accomplishments on it, all the while talkin’ shit about “Thorp” and his teams.

  2. The half pay for Emmett was a limit set by Dr. Pearl. At the time, Gil didn’t say what Emmett was getting. Apparently he’s some kind of big star & money is irrelevant to him. Unlike Adrian Dantley, who took a job as a crossing guard, and did it well, for the medical coverage.

  3. Mimi’s really looking lovingly at Gil in P2.
    I wouldn’t mind if my wife looked at me that way sometimes.
    Ah well, I guess I should be satisfied with the occasional “pick up your socks!!” as my wife’s romantic overtones to me, after several decades of marriage.
