McShanes Hardware – For All Your Escheresque Building Needs


Folks, can we just mosey on past panels one and two? Thanks.

That brings us to McSHANES [sic], where we get a comparative bonanza of new information! Viz., Quad-A’s mother’s first name is Tina (not sure what street drugs that’s code for) and she’s in the back of a hardware store, which is presumably her place of employment.

Respectful Ignorance

Filed under: ?, Boredom in Milford, Fontastic, freak hands, Milford Idiots — timbuys @ 7:58 am


Nothing like pulling a tall Freezy Bomb at the Swifti Mart in the dead of winter.

Did I say I was OK with the continued antics of Ken and Mike? I suppose that I did but these two really need to pick up the pace. Grabbing a drink at the corner store ain’t exactly the most exciting plot device.

A Regular Ol’ Bad Day

Filed under: actual action, basketball, Chunky Bracelets, Fontastic, Milford Idiots — timbuys @ 1:01 pm


P1: The Ken and Mike show is a bit tedious but I can live with it a lot easier than a Bobby/Max/Knox type featuring prominently.

P2: Did we ever come up with a name for those little baby’s fist size onyx earrings so popular with the Milford women? Is there some corresponding signal Kaz is trying to send with his pearl white studs?

P3: Does AAAA’s hair serve as a quasi barometer for his energy level?

Bonus points:

Nice Net.

Those panes of glass are tremendous. I wish my desk at home looked out of a window like that!

Mad props to the MHS jersey designer for having the 4 nestled into the 2.

Hayden Fry Was A Tool But Kirk Ferentz Is Alright I suppose

I’ll leave it to our commenters to parse the rest.

I Suppose We Could All Skip This

Filed under: Boredom in Milford, Fontastic, Gil Thorp, Just plain sad — timbuys @ 7:01 am


Hmmm… I wonder what the first book someone will put in there might be.

Regardless, all of those days where we really got to know about Boo’s love of reading are finally paying off now, aren’t they?

Bonus points: Are we meant to understand that Barry is surreptitiously surveilling the scene from the boys’ room?

Are They At The Store While Practice Is Ongoing?

Filed under: exploding mailboxes, Fontastic, Gil Thorp, Mimi Thorp — timbuys @ 6:42 am


Mostly questions today…

P1: Is it me or is that shopping basket quite narrow? Did Mimi write their shopping list on a business card? What’s in the multiple sacks they have at the bottom?

P2: Did Gil really blow off his role as an authority figure because it would be a hassle?

P3: Who are these girls of whom Gil asks? Shouldn’t we be talking about Ken and Barry and True and, I dunno, Mike Granger?

It Beats Selling Consumer Solvents

Filed under: Central City Cretins, Fontastic, What the hell is going on here? — timbuys @ 7:34 am


I don’t typically frequent bars but, from time to time in my life, I have suffered many days of business travel more than a few of which would end with dinner at a bar/restaurant. I can only ever recall once when a bartender questioned one of my colleagues about ordering another drink and that was at an Applebee’s in some miserable suburb. We never went back there.

Many of those evenings we would have one or more sales guys with our team. If our current subject really is a high octane B2B sales guy, I would be shocked if he didn’t have several entertaining stories about his career that he regularly relates with gusto after having had a few drinks.
