Monks modify Kool and the Gang by promoting Celibation.
Ricozzi was not one of the four families eradicated by Michael Corleone. The families Barzini, Strachi, Tattaglia and Cuneo all lost their respective heads in one decisive day. Ricozzi was a secondary family linked with the Gucci, Zamboni and Jacuzzi organizations.
Louis this could be the start of a beautiful friendship
Okay, based on this, it looks like this is the end? That’s it?
1. So the point of all this was that Chance is on the spectrum? Some form of autism? Freaking out from crowds and loud noises are signs. I’m glad it was explored so well. Oh, wait, actually nothing was really explained at all. Well at least he’s doing well while avoiding those situations. It’s a good thing he isn’t playing football where you’re getting gang tackled and performing in front of huge crowds.
2. What the hell ever happened to his parents? At least they could have let us know if they’re dead, or just abandoned Chance because of his scissors incident.
3. You’ve got to admire the way Gil handled this whole situation. What’s that? Gil and Mimi could have made 0 appearances during this season and nothing would have changed? Right you are!
4. The one bright spot is there will be no touching moment at the end where Charlie calls Chet “Dad”.
And speaking of right, right now you can read today’s edition of Mopped Up Thorp: https://moppedupthorp.wordpress.com/
I like how Charlie refers to it as “his” credit card. So Chet never gets it back? He better sell a hell of a lot of new policies in the near future.
P1, Loud and packed?!? WTF, even Urban Dictionary doesn’t have a listing for that but it sure sounds like something that happens in the showers and stays in the showers.
P2, It’s Chet’s credit card but it still won’t buy him a “Dad.”
P3, With any luck, we’ll all be celebrating when basketball starts on Monday. It’s not like the first time we’ve been left with unresolved plot holes. Just ask Kylie.
Chet gets the last laugh by reporting the card as lost. So when Charlie goes to pay the bill, the card gets declined, and he has to beg the manager to “let me call my dad.”
…and a few cocktails and and a lap dance or two. Party on!"
Ricozzi’s is quaint and quiet? The pizza joints in upstate NY that I Eugenio Schnobbarino were anything but and you don’t know who might show up?
Quite a nice bit of eroticism today.
In all ŕeality , alright a celebration , a pizza and do you think we could stop at Lefty’s Hardware and get me some scissors ?
The Fonz in P3
Checked The Seattle Times and Charlie is flashing a gold card. Wouldn’t it be great if Clumsy was still waitressing there as Mrs. Lucky Haskins? Looking forward to basketball season without BStat Whiz, Pirate TV, apple juggling ravers and manly Lady Mudlarks. Who am I kidding? Bring on the next lame travesty.
Yep, with any luck, Ms Douchey will make an appearance next week while Gil reads the list of starters for BB team for her
So, off to Ricozzi’s…where they will encounter a dejected and angry Valley Tech team growling through their postgame meal…and various hijinks ensue.
P4: And in the worst display of poor sportsmanship ever, the Tilden linebacker from the game at the start of October blindsides Chance! Latest hit ever. The good news is that Chance is hurt so badly he can’t play basketball and gets a reprieve from this strip until next fall.
I’ve been to Ricozzi’s. It’s a build your own pie joint.
Odds for Monday’s strip. Betting window remains open until 11pm Sunday.
3-1: In the gym for boys basketball practice.
5-1: In the gym for girls basketball practice.
6-1: A new kid is thinking about something, or talking with other kids. This kid will be the focus for the winter lameness.
6-1: In the Thorp household, where there is some playful banter about the upcoming basketball season, but no mention of the just completed failed football season.
20-1: It’s either focused on Chance and Charlie at Ricozzi’s, or focused back on Chet, letting us know we’re not done yet with them, making us all blowtop mad.
40-1: Moon is in the spotlight, either at home, the office, or his car, thinking some bizarre cryptic thoughts about something we know nothing about, trying to build interest and suspense about something that will eventually disappoint.
80-1: The spotlight focuses back on Kylie, and her rescue from Milford CC.
475,201-1: Commencement of a new, intelligent, well-crafted, well-drawn, engrossing basketball story that will draw praise from all of us.
A quiet, romantic table for two at Ricozzi’s….will there be a sequel called, “Blowtop Mountain”?
So I was browsing back through past MUT articles to see when the cheap shot against Chance occurred, and noticed I spelled “flamboyantly” wrong in the 10/3 strip, and NOBODY TOLD ME. Because of my minor OCD, I fixed it and reposted. Somebody should have called it out!
Seriously, feel free to point out typos at any time, no matter how small. I will not be offended. It’s amazing how often you miss things proofreading your own words. But reading someone else’s it’s so obvious.
P1: The Bucket?!? Thanks, but I’m just getting over the flu….I don’t want that feeling again.
…back in my day, “loud and packed” referred to when the guy who has had too many Harvey Wall Bangers stuffs a sweat sock into the front of his Jordache jeans
