I was about to joke about the umbrella being driven right through the blanket but apparently beach blankets with umbrella holes are a thing.
Don’t tell me that P3 in her black bikini is Keri Thorp? “Baby you been growin and lately it’s been showin”.
P3- Joan Jett makes a long awaited cameo. I hate myself for loving you Daddy Gil.
Nobody is rushing to help Fist Pump Man as he flounders in the ocean? Mimi practicing social distancing in P1? And is that CK, complete with her signature snarkiness, reincarnated as the “new” Keri? Questions, questions, questions.
In all reality , Get lost you kids ! Hi Chance, fancy meeting you here in Hawaii . Oh hi Mrs Thorp ,want me to put some sun tan lotion on ?
Mimi doesn’t seem to be missing Gil too much.Nor spending time with her Mom.
Sounds like there are some serious mommy and daddy issues going on in the Thorp family.
Whoa, Keri! Go easy with the sunscreen, you’ve got so much on that you’re white as a ghost today. Pedro…errrrr…daddy Gil wouldn’t recognize you.
P3 Keri texts Gil for the hundred and thirty-sixth time during his meeting with Marty Moon at Milford CC, and of course, Gil doesn’t know what to do.
I thought Gil’s wife was the Women’s Softball Coach at Milford.????
The question here is whether Mimi is worthy of Gil’s love.
Wait, that dialog at the end sounds just like what was going on here in the comments between those two, lol.
From today’s Comics Curmudgeon:
“I’ve made many, many jokes over the years about how the Thorps’ kids have been memory holed. The strip’s new writer is bringing them back, though, and in their very first appearance is letting us know why they’ve been gone so long: they suck. A bratty teen and a little tattletale! Who’d want a get a Christmas card with pictures of these losers on it? Certainly not me!”
Clearly, we’re in an alternate universe where Gil and Marty are buddies, Gil’s kids are teenagers, and Mimi’s steppin’ out on her own! Tune in tomorrow!
Yay, I’m finally starting to get some real lines and camera time. Henry better not make me sound like a snotty brat all the time though. I’m predicting big things for me.
Coach has kids? First that I’ve seen ’em…
Just eat your ice cream cone before it melts into a puddle all over you..
“Don’t go where I can’t see you.” Which is basically anywhere since she’s reading her book and turned away from the water.
“I’m telling mom!” He’s standing right next to her. Mimi heard it too. Jami ain’t too bright. But Keri must have excellent hearing considering how far away she is.
And speaking of far away, you’re not too far away from reading today’s Mopped Up Thorp. You’re just one URL away!
MImi hasn’t aged a day since she had these kids
So is this Bizarro Keri? Her skin gets lighter when she sunbathes?
P1.5 “Did you forget I’m 22 years old? I only look like a baby because of the rat meat and rice diet I’ve been on for the last fourteen years.”
P2.5 “How dare you call me “your baby” after you and “dad” sent us off to the sweatshop to make his ‘Gil Thorp State Champion’ apparel!
P3.5 “Sure Keri, why don’t you cut yourself again and chum the waters for me first?”
Is the book that Mimi’s reading How to Care for an Ailing Parent? Because I think “Leave her at home and go to the beach” isn’t high on the list of what to do.
So the kids have regressed 15 years?
I guess his wife is a harpy. She took the kids and left, and doesn’t seem the least bit upset about it.
Um, a little help? Fistpump man in trouble! Please help, I don’t want to miss the big Milford v Valley Tech clash.
No baby would dare to eat a cone of steamed rice on such a hot summer’s day!
Coaches Held Hostage: Coach Kaz, Day 52.
I remember a friend telling us years ago that she heard her daughter telling her annoying younger brother to “Go outside and play with the traffic!”
