When Your Own Characters Are Calling Out The Plot…

Perhaps it is time to concede that you have lost the thread.

P1: Lest we forget, this brainfart of Jaquan’s just occurred to him the other day or perhaps just earlier in the day.

Also, all hail Trey’s Spatulork resplendent in its oblong glory.

P2: About time someone started talking some sense around here…

P3: That didn’t last long…

Maybe I’ll Start Making Puns On His Last Name

080817

P1: Overdramatic much, Jaquan?

P2: Excuse me.. Mr. Case? I’ve been listening to you humblebrag for a good five minutes now and I’m just now putting it together that you’re some kind of celebrity.

P3: ?

Hooked On Tronix

I can’t exactly put my finger on it but Trey’s response to Other Guy cracks me up. Also cracking me up? Trey’s hair. We’ll have to see how it’s rendered in the ensuing strips but there is definite potential there.

Theoretically Feeling That Flash

I’m not saying I need, or even want, a moral that makes sense to wrap up a Gil Thorp season… but this is some pretty weak sauce denouement. Also, too, didn’t someone slug what’s his name?

What else do we have today?

P1: Ms. Rizk’s clenched fist makes this quite the arc for that sort of thing if that’s what you’re into.

P2: I love the twin terminals in the foreground. I guess that big scoop on expense account abuse freed up funds for the paper.

P3: Prairie style window muntins are what do it for me, so let’s just focus on those and ignore whatever lame point Dafne is trying to make.

Did Someone Say Track?

062117

Hey remember how there was a whole thing about one of the girls liking one of the guys on the track team? Yeah, me neither.

Bonus points:

Kaz’s barbed wire tattoo peeking out beneath his sleeve that he still regrets getting but can’t afford to get removed.

One Other Problem?

Wait, the Van Aukens wanted a fresh start so they moved to the next tank town over which is actually closer to Ma Van Auken’s work?

Like many TWIM commenters, I’m not even sure what the heck Gil is talking to Dr. Pearl about. So far as we’ve seen, aside from losing control, not his temper mind you, while being the subject of a protest of sorts, Ryan has mostly been OK.

Except that…. there’s one other problem. Sure, why not, it’s mid-June, we have practically no feel for any of the character’s in this season’s plot nor any sense of what’s at stake, but let’s introduce another thread to the plot. As they say, tune in tomorrow…

How Many Athletic Transfers Does MHS Get Anyway?

Seriously, it’s gotta be every other plot where some kid from outta town comes to Milford.

I’ll leave commentary regarding Ms. Rizik’s dubious listening and advisory skills to the TWIM community.

More kid gossip

So after the Bucket stare-off, we find that both the guy and the girl thought the other guy and girl was impressed with them. Egads. I cant keep anybody straight at this point. All I know is someone is gonna get mad at somebody for no good reason. P3 adds to the confusion with 3 more girls deciding to go … where? Who knows who likes who at this point and who cares? We got games to play.

METAPOST: I couldnt upload  the strip because GOcomics wasnt working properly, so I put the link from the Seattle Times in instead. I dont know why I cant copy/paste the Seattle link anymore but if someone can tell me how I’d appreciate it.

META-METAPOST: Not sure the issue, but hope you don’t mind my fix, Rob. TimP
