    Gil is NOT in for a good time this year. I didn’t believe it would ever happen but I think Gil’s bartending admirer may have a chance after all.

    I hope Beth the bartender gets her shot at Gil.

    I’m not agains this plot: it’s a nice way to contextualize the fact we mostly see Gil so focused on his work. But I do think having the biggest queer plot in the comic be about an affair is a tad dicey, and that it’s spread so far out. It’s taken us THIS long to get to the slow breakup of the marriage. And it’s STILL not set in stone what exactly’s happening.

    P1 The alien abduction begins as the entire Milford football team walks toward the light.

    P2 Cami heads toward the mothership in hopes of throwing down with ET and his buddies.

    P3 Gil strikes his cutest, “Moi?” pose after Cami asks him if he is in or out to rumble with the grays.

    P4 “No turn off that silly game, Mimi and kiss me you fool!”

    P2- With this plot twist, for the first time ever, Signman has crapped out. White noise.

    Why didn’t the comic authors just create a new strip, or at the very least a spin -off, instead of totally destroying an age old classic?

    Juxtaposing a football scene (at last) with this strips’ most annoying sorta-subplot is whatever you call the calculated opposite of fan service.

    Are the authors projecting here? Just saying. MILFord has taken an interesting turn. Tune in tomorrow! We used to worry about where Milford was located. Now we are concerned about which character is in a relationship with another character; more like MILFord Island!

    Contrary to popular belief, Gil don’t GAF that Mimi is switching teams….Mimi is gettin’ old, saggy, and wrinkly…Gil doesn’t age and has his pick of younger women like BtB, the pilot, HVB, Heather, Cami, and many others including a long list former still-female students

    P3: Gil just got off his burner phone with HvB, who told him the prenup was solid, the hag gets nothing from Gil Industries. And, yes, she’ll call Vito from Goshen to get a guy down there tomorrow to “fix” that airplane.

    Mimi and Gil have been together for a long time (around 20 years in this reality), more like 40 in actual time. There’s never been a hint of infidelity…and remember, this is a strip that’s tackled more than its share of controversial topics over the years.

    But since the author just had to insert a gay love triangle, this is what we get. To hell with Gil and Mimi’s marriage! We’ve got an agenda to push here! (Jaysus, this author projects like an IMAX theatre.)

    And it’s foolproof, because anybody who complains is a bigot and a homophobe! The author doesn’t care, because readership is up [citation needed] and he’s not going anywhere! Ever! Suck it, haters…!

    The only issue in this failing marriage is “who gets the kids?” Gil doesn’t want them anymore than Mimi does, especially Jami

    “I, Mimi take you, Gil, to be my husband, and I do promise and covenant, before God and these witnesses, to be your loving and faithful wife in plenty and in want, in joy and in sorrow, in sickness and in health, as long as we both shall live.”Guess Mimi does not remember this vow.

    P1 – Watch out for the glowing octagons!

    P2 – Coach Cami apparently has assumed the head coach position. Rumor is that Gil was accused of inappropriate phone sex with Beth and/or the pilot.

    P3 – Wait, there he is, I guess he’s not suspended after all. It must have killed Whigham to put that text box where he did. It blocked out most of the glorious big hand he drew.

    And speaking of glorious, today’s Mopped Up Thorp probably doesn’t fall into that category. More of the weird category.

    I totally agree. So I’m going to quit reading this strip, as it’s not the Gil Thorp that its creator intended.
