    This storyline makes my head feel like the Iron Sheik has me in the Camel Clutch. I may have to tap out until football season.

    Riveting story line.
    Can’t wait to see how it ends.
    Really, hurry up and end

    I’ve lost all sense of time. A quick review of July would appear to show that it’s two or three days since Pop beat up the punks. Part of that time he was in Central City. This scene in the Subwich store makes no sense.

    Who’s Count Von Gore? Does Subwich sell chili dogs? Does that freckly kid outweigh Herk by 50 lbs? I agree with Chip that this is only day two. It won’t be day three until Herk changes his shirt again.

    Count Von Gore is Herk’s name for former Vice President Al Gore.

    I want more details on those chili dogs—with or without onions?

    HA HA, Albert Gore, Jr.. The guy who invented the internet, Macarena, global warming and allegedly the Subwich franchise shops.

    Bear-Keep your political comments to your self please. This is a forum for people who wish Jack Berrill was still around and doing this strip.

    I think Pops is beginning to look like Ed Asner now. I wonder who he’ll resemble tomorrow?

    Kind of creepy seeing the old man do the universal beat off sign right in front of, probably an underage, young lady.

    I’m waiting for Pops to invite his buddy Haystacks Calhoun to lunch so they can eat Subwich out of business and we can get to the riveting action of the MCC polo finals. Marty Moon is doing live reporting from a spring horse in the parking lot. Is this plot a running commentary on the faithful readers of the Thorp strip? I don’t know, but I’ve gotta get a sandwich, if I can find the way there.

    Wow, look how big those sandwiches are! I wish we had things like that here at the orphanage. Well, better get back to my gruel before it gets cold.

    During some storylines, I wish someone was still around writing the strip. Regarding Bearwku82’s “Von Gore” comment… if the guy of whom he speaks has been making those same jokes about himself for years, I think it is pretty vanilla and apolitical.

    @Jami Thorp

    When you have big hands, all you can make is large sandwiches!
