This Week in Milford

January 18, 2023

You Can Call Him “GilPa” But You Doesn’t Have to Call Him “Gil Exotic.”

Times are tough in Milford. Unspecified budget cuts have had some kind of unspecified effect on Mudlark sports. Kids are being forced to sell cheap substandard chocolate in front of grocery stores. Now Gil himself has stooped to debasing himself in, of all things, a spot for a used car dealer. Not just any used car dealer, mind you, but one whose appearance is explicitly based on Joe Exotic a/k/a The Tiger King. If Joe wasn’t behind bars I’d expect him to come after the Chief for appropriating his likeness.

Of course, GilPa* might not be doing this for the Mudlarks. Mimi’s little jaunt to Scottsdale hasn’t paid for itself yet! The fact that she’s been able to take it may imply that it was her job – and Milford girls’ hoops – that were the victims of the unspecified budget cuts. Then again, GilPa might need to pay a retainer to a divorce lawyer. He could be doing ads for the Foley Law Group before it’s all done. Maybe he could call in a favor from Hadley V. Baxendale.

*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.”)

Arf!

This strip will make sense tomorrow

Because I keep thinking that tomorrow

I’ll catch on!

Another plot thread tomorrow

Ties up all the loose ends and confusion

‘Til there’s none!

When I can’t figure out

Who’s who, and what’s what,

I just grasp at a straw,

And post, and say,

Oh!

This strip’ll make sense tomorrow

When I read the comments on GoComics

Then I’ll cry

Tomorrow!

Tomorrow!

I’ll get it!

Tomorrow!

‘Cause Henry

Will tell us why!
