Rip Haywire by Dan Thompson for June 23, 2012
Teen aged Rip has fought off pirates and his attraction to a certain dark-haired vixen! Dutch: The authorities will take care of the pirates, kid. Rip: What's going to happen to the girl, Dutch? Dutch: Not sure, kid! Though with her crazy family, I'd say she's bound to grow up to be a drop-dead gorgeous, double-crossing thief! Rip: Did you hear about how I totally saved the day all on my own? Dutch: You acted like a fool, and nearly got yourself blown up and that girl killed. Rip: Oh c'mon, dad! Cobra: Can you erase that last memory? He'll whine over it for weeks. McLuvyah; What is up with his father fixation?
