Yes I took the day off to watch the inaugural ceremonies, so taking a break to do this while the parade is going on. Hey, even when I have all day this strip isnt exactly Job One. Was hoping Trump would say this strip has to move along faster in his speech but no dice. Took 3 days to get it out of Molly that yes she’s his girlfriend, and yes they were raving all weekend. Still looks like a bit of a fake friendship but I’m holding out hope that its all good and we can move on to why he cant play well all the time. Love the freak hand in P3!
Gosh, but Mike and Ken make quite the couple in panel one.
Meanwhile, as predicted by nearly everyone paying attention,* Molly, at least in this one particular instance, refers to Holly Dobbs‘ illegitimate daughter, Molly O’Herlihy.
Hey, how long of a pause do you think AaAa’s ellipse is supposed to indicate? I think seeing Gil put the same move on AaAa’s girlfriend that he just used to emasculate the Tilden coach would make me pause for a bit too.
* No slight to whoever called it first, I’m just too lazy to look it up.
Putting quadruple-A in for a Pantheon of Hair nomination now that it’s clearly the case that its posture is proportional to his perceived performance.
I tried, and failed, to line up all of the high fives with the arms in panel three. Nevermind that, however, because what is the deal with AAAA’s left arm? I think this is the first time I’ve used the ‘big arms’ tag but there it is.
Aaron Aagard went to Kill The Noise where he hooked up with Molly (whatever that means) and grooved away Saturday night, producing this eye popping panel of freaky kids all enraptured with Kill The Noise. What is to the extreme left of the panel in the foreground? A face? Some other body part attached to a strand of hair? Señor Wences?
And then on Monday…we’re right back where we were last week! Mike and Ken are still building their case, dithering away about what to do. Wait, was that Gil? Was he coaching? Do you think he might get a clue about Aaron’s deficits in attention and energy? It’s still January, so we should probably wash, rinse, repeat a few more time before we expect significant action from Gil.
We now return you to Mike Granger and Ken Brown, Boy Detectives. Mike and Ken are working a case to determine if Aaron Aagard is rolling on molly on the regs or just plain flakey. The first snag they hit is that Ken Brown’s fingers might be too freakishly big to efficiently google molly. His iPhone looks like a pack of gum in those mitts! Then, our investigators must grapple with how to proceed with their information. Who needs to know about Aagard’s fondness for disco biscuits*? Stay tuned for more Mike Granger and Ken Brown, Boy Detectives.
I’m enjoying the foreground tray of Bucket chow. Nice touch, Whigham.
*slang term for molly found by googling it
Because that would suggest in-game coaching and that ain’t Gil’s bag…
Panel one: Good thing there isn’t a coach or anybody in that other seat next to AAAA. Nope, just put the low energy guy next the shaggy haired teen doing his best impression of the personification of ennui.
Panel two: I admit that I had to check whether Julius Funchess is a Key and Peele reference. The character design certainly is suggestive of Keegan-Michael Key.
Panel three: I also admit that I don’t have a joke for this one. Enjoy your day in the sun, Mike Granger!
There’s no doubt Aaron’s gonna hit the laptop. He can’t type with those freaky fingers.
Panel 2 is Aaron Aagard when he’s not ready to rumble. He totally got schooled by that other guy. Presumably.
Check out Marjie, pencil at the ready. Maybe Gil is thinking about going nom nom nom on that pencil.

Is Gil being sarcastic in panel one because he looks pretty torqued there?
Are panels two and three crying out for me to make a joke about how much alcohol Gil can consume in his two jumbo ‘coffees’ before seven a.m.?
Wait a second, what the hell is Kaz wearing and why is he sitting like that?
Too many questions…
