Hey Gil, who’s been mopping your floors while you’re working out with Kaz?
Anyone else think Gil looks 20+ years younger?
“Actually, I’d prefer kicking you in the teeth, but I’ll settle for what I can get.”
Is that ETS (T for Temples)? Or is she the daughter of Uncle Martin/Ray Walston?
P2: Doesn’t look like CK…when did she develop the David Letterman gap tooth?
P2: I think that’s the wrong finger.
So she did get her scholarships at 2 colleges in 2 weeks…I seem to recall it taking months, at least. Very realistic…especially for a softball catcher with less than scholarship-level grades. The stint at the reform school probably is what pushed her over the top.
I prefer “Kicking it up yours”
Let’s get back to the Library Board arc, I want to know what happened with BurritoMan’s campaign???!!!
Why isn’t Gil giving golf lessons at MCC?
In all reality , MA , who am I going to live with ? Tru is in Fargo pitching for the Frakers in the low minors. We’ll Corina honey, you’re going to live with the Thorps, they miss having a teenager around .
The coach at Onondaga must be SO looking forward to having a recalcitrant catcher with Corina’s background.
This arc is down-right ridiculous!
P1- CK has experienced almost as many explosions this week as Wile E. Coyote in a 5 minute cartoon.
P2- Somewhere, Christopher Lambert nods approval.
P3- There is more than one Internet Ninja in Milford tapping a few keys. GilPa and Mimi have carte blanc in Milford. Minimum work and coaching schedules, police protection, loyal henchmen and a lemming like community. And a lifetime supply of Oil of Olay.
My wife and I, at various points in our lives, received similar ultimatums from our respective families: do this our way or out you go. We both chose to take off within days, for good. Neither of us are on speaking terms with our families, much to their respective dismay, and neither of us were half as hotheaded and outspoken as CK. So you go, Mrs. Karenna, show everyone how it’s done. Just don’t go whining a decade from now how you’ve never met your grandchildren.
P1 CK head gets ready to explode seeing mom limbering up getting ready open a can of whoopa$$ on her sweet (sweat?) daughter
P2 the (big hand) fickle finger of fate is about to be jammed up CK’s nose to drag her out of the house and into the future
P3 “I hit on…errrrr…hit…errrr…never mind about that, bring me my drink and don’t you dare spill anything on Mopman’s perfect floor
Doesn’t SHE get any input? They have no idea what she wants to major in! This is the dumbest plot ever.
Mimi has had lots of “players” over the years.
P 2.5: “…but first, I need you to take a ride over to Swifti Mart and get us a gallon of milk…”
CK being “kicked upward” by her flame throwing (and completely unrelated to Mopman) mother? This is how R&W wrap up CK’s Milford career? Poolside tomorrow with a wisp of a golf reference at MCC? Oy! Pass me the Xanax and Jack Daniels.
Is Gil wearing a long sleeved shirt that he rolled all the way above his biceps or a short sleeved shirt that he rolled above his biceps or did he actually buy a shirt with cuffed short sleeves?
P1, The ants think you should, too CK.
P2, I had you committed to reform school and somehow you escaped so winters in Syracuse should keep you out of my hair for at least 4 years.
P3, Now do you understand, CK? You can never, ever escape the Thorp’s unless they want you gone like their kids and dog.
P 4" “…yeah, well, now it looks like you got an ex-player who wants to hit you…”
A hand as big as your head
I hope she didn’t have too much fun at the prom. Or by next spring she will not be playing softball and lose her CC scholarship.
As bad as today’s strip is, my only question is: “What small animal is Mom suffocating in P-1?”
Have we seen Mimi wearing a ponytail before?
Be on the look-out for a self-conscious pony.
As a casual reader, I’m wondering if the strip has always been this location-specific. I don’t remember the city of Syracuse ever being mentioned.
P1 – Mama K, stretching and limbering up before she administers a royal ass-kicking. Thinking, “I should have done this years ago!”
P2 – Ah, so that partially explains how they secured admission and scholarships and financial aid so fast. They had Thing helping them out.
P3 – Where the heck are they now? That isn’t one of their offices, it ain’t the Teacher’s Lounge, and it ain’t home. Are they at the library, showing support for Zane’s candidacy? Making the library a little less empty?
And speaking of showing support, you can show support for Mopped Up Thorp by sending a one time, or heck, a recurring donation of $100 or more directly to me. Or, optionally, you can just go to this link and read it.
I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s P1 when Gil pours the white stuff into the gray stuff causing it to bubble up over the rim of the glass. Mopman will spring into action before a drop hits the linoleum.
