    If we don’t get back to Mimi’s lesbian love triangle this week, then I’m going back to Beetle Bailey.

    Pushers at the high school is now one of the threads to be dropped/ignored or will it become the vaguely central theme of this arc (putting aside basketball, Mimi, Gil’s daughter’s love life, lack of school funding, the source of the way under-priced candy bars, and the weird coaching questions about VT)?

    P1.5 “Oh yeah? Where’s your eraser, teacher’s pet?”

    P2.5 “You got Scooby snacks?”

    P3 “We don’t vape when we play magic, we just put a pinch between our cheeks and our gums. Got Bandits?”

    Uh oh, Jami’s gonna tattle about this, Gil will investigate (or more likely wait until someone else does), then the jig will be up for Toby. And speaking of jigs, I can’t think of how to use jig in wordplay to let you know that today’s Mopped Up Thorp is online.

    I guess HooDad can take Jami off the board now in the Characters Held Hostage sweepstakes. Hoo’s next? Mrs. Pearl?

    Waiting for Hank’s version of Brent Raptor to show up. Rules are pretty lax at Milford Middle School. Yutes allowed to wear hats/caps while in school? P0.5- The Magic Muzak stereo system plays Brownsville Station “Smokin’ in the Boys Room” as the kids munch on soybean burgers.

    I guess kids no longer go near actual cigarettes.

    P 4: “….and my mom says vaping is wrong…you better not be trying to get kids to do this stuff, or I’m telling…” (then Jami disappears from the strip, this time for good)

    Apparently vaping and playing Magic are mutually exclusive.

    FWIW, MTG has Silver Drake, Silver Raven, Silver Myr—but none of the Silver things are sea gods, and none of the Sea Gods are silver. Still, it sounds like a perfectly plausible card. Maybe WotC will make one someday.
