    DON’T MOVE IN WITH THE THORPS!!! You’ll “disapperar!” It’s happened TWICE before and all those milk cartons didn’t bring back Jamey and ??? Hm, I forgot the other kid’s name.

    Every shop teacher I ever had, had 2 or 3 fingertips cut off just like Gil in P1. Or maybe the ants gnawed them off.

    Gil replies in P2, “I hope his dad can take him. That kid eats pie like there’s no tomorrow. I’ve got kids of my own you know. I can’t afford to feed him, too. Oh, wait. . .”

    Yompin’ Yiminy, A Quad, you’re a whiny little ingrate aren’t you. You know what happened to Gil’s kids when they got all whiny, right?

    In all reality , Hey Coach, remember True , he sent me a shoe box filled with Maui Wow , my Mom tried it over the weekend and it was very effective in easing her pain. Thanks for meddling in our lives.

    Meanwhile , Mopman discovers B K Brown is a Narc written all over the school . An unaware B K Brown enters the school and hears calls of Narc, Snitch, Rat, Stool in directed at him !

    Norway? You’re in luck. That’s right next door to Sweden.

    And Norway was just named the happiest country on earth! Ship the kid there, end this plot and everyone is happy!

    Curious about GilPa’s little ghostly coffee mug. Aaron moves in with the Thorps? An All State safety as a Junior at my high school moves in with the head coach Senior year and becomes honorable mention. I guess the QB fracturing his ankle early in the season didn’t help.

    You’d think Gil should’ve asked about BOTH parents before putting Aaron in a difficult situation.

    Norway? OK, I’ve got it. We’ll send you to Lumberjack camp in Minnesota. Three square meals a day, you learn a trade and as a bonus you learn the words to the Monty Python song so you can impress Molly at the next rave.

    He is old enough to be by himself.

    P-1: Gill and the counselor have a secret meeting on the back stairwell. Hmmm.

    P-2: Gill, if I lower my glasses like this, I can see you in soft focus.

    P-3: Well, if he’s in Norway, he’ll never know I sold you to the Gypsies.

    P-2: the counselor then breaks out into a Sound of Music sound alike: “What do you do with a boy like Aaaaron?”

    P3- there is Gil with his “oh shit, I’ve meddled and overreached again” expression. You would think at his advanced age he would learn to shut his pie hole! On the other hand, he now has a youthful ward to help with chores around the house and can relieve Pedro of his pool duties. Mimi can train him.

    Panel three begs the question….. is Gil the model for the Easter Island head statues?

    …and this is why we have a protocol in involving the correct authorities…

    Or perhaps the real reason that State Champion Coach Gil Thorp didn’t contact the authorities is that they might start poking around in his family…

    I heard Boo’s parents have a bedroom they’re not using anymore.

    Too soon?

    So Gil talks to the mom, never even asks if AQuad has a dad, talks her into rehab, researches facilities, has no thought as to where or who Aquad will live with. Then eventually reveals his great resolution to the counselor who asks where AQuad will live and Gil is all, “uhhhhhhh”. And speaking of resolutions, the resolution to what you will do with yourself for the next minute is right here – reading today’s Mopped Up Thorp.

    Why do I have the feeling that he moves in with Ken Brown and a new bro-mance is born.
