    Really, Coach Kaz? I can take your tattoo? Because it appears to be attached to your arm you lunkhead. Now stop trying to be Robert Plant circa 1978 and get some jeans that fit. Who’s giving Kayla the mind meld in P2?

    @Kadedee, marcusliviusdrusus and Goshen: I do think a professional illustrator, cartoonist, whatever shouldn’t have basketballs the size of a beach ball one day and a cantaloupe the next. That being said, none of these criticisms is meant seriously. I thought this was a site for former class clowns to have some fun making wisecracks. Everyone who posts on this site loves Gil Thorp or we wouldn’t read it every day, even the guy who keeps wondering where the Thorp kids are. I’m only reliving my youth, much like Wildcat Maris — except that I wasn’t all-state.

    Gad, you guys are up EARLY to have made comments already. Night workers? Me, I am in Europe for now… I like what you guys write, btw! Fun stuff!

    Ooo, Kaz, really? I can take it? Terrific!

    (sound of a chainsaw firing up)

    Just hold that meat pole you call an arm straight out, and the excruciating pain will last for just a moment …


    Gosh, sorry … I lied about the pain, didn’t I?

    The tat stoyline is a subplot fo something grander. Playdowns? Beecher’s recuitment to college? Mimi posing for a men’s mag?

    Wow, Taz’s right arm was inked in last week’s strip, so maybe he ran down to Milford Ink and got the left arm done. Either way, once again Taz has come up with a reason to flex them guns in front of people one more time.

    It appears to me that the silhouette of some animal , perhaps a turkey or squirrel has wandered in front of Kaz’s crotch (hmm, would make a good band name, Kaz’s crotch)

    It seems too many previous head trauma’s have affected Kaz’s ability to count. Last week he had ONE tat. Guess it moved to his left arm. Cortez likes the goggle look so much he wears it in the locker room.

    I’m with Chip, too. Everyone here loves this strip. Picking at it is part of the fun, and since I can’t be a weisenheimer at my oh-so-serious job, I get to lighten up here occasionally.

    That’s Cortez? I thought James Carville had joined the team

    Tats for Tasha & Kayla, along with teammates Lativia, Nokia, Shasta, Kia, Ikea and Libya.

    We go through this discussion once every six or eight months. Critical comments here are all in fun — without them, we’d all have to take a tat storyline seriously … my God, don’t let me end up there. I think through it all we all love our Gil — we keep returning to it every morning!

    So where are those Thorp kids, anyway?

    I think we’d all be down with this plot line if Molly got a tramp stamp.

    @Kadedee, et al; if you like the strip, read the strip and enjoy. If you don’t like the comments, don’t read the comments. Or would you rather all comments be routed through you for approval before being posted?

    @zipperg – Your last statement is totally ridiculous. They should all be routed through ME for approval.
