    UUW? My right, coach? Problemo? This is just sad. I stopped reading this strip shortly after the new writer started but I still check in occasionally, and it looks like nothing changed.

    Does she have a cloth handkerchief with her? This is important.

    P1 Is that Frannie or Luke’s new side piece…errr…freestyle wrestling assistant?

    P2 coach yellow jacket distracts the referee with uniform violation chatter as he prepares to put the sleeper hold on the ref’s nether region.

    P3 Oh no! That coach is Inma head!

    The author presumably got the idea from this article: google “United World Wrestling Bans Teen Wrestler From Competing in Full-Coverage Uniform & Hijab”. (It won’t let me leave the http address.)

    The UUW, er, UWW, does exist, but it seems to regulate club wrestling, not scholastic. What wrestlers wear in scholastic matches would presumably be decided by the state HS association. (It would seem that wrestling is yet another sport that the author doesn’t know much about.)

    Did the author create a whole Milford girls wrestling team — never seen in any previous comic — just to gin up this hijab controversy, and thus shame all of his readers about what awful racists they are? Yikes.

    Interacting with Gil has influenced Lukey Tobe a more mature, responsible adult. Yeah sure. BHHLHM is still working while GilPa slides and hides. What are the odds of Pa and Ma Thorp watching Keri’s rasslin’ match?

    Yep, third place it is. To make matters worse, there are only two schools competing.

    Luke laughs maniacally and says: it’s not a Hijab, it’s a herjab. Groucho apes for the camera.

    Stop the presses! Bull Bushka is alive and coaching girls wrestling somewhere near Milford! Talk about Funky characters infesting Crankshaft, they’re spreading everywhere! And they’re coming back Islamophobic!

    So, UUW is an acronym for United World Wrestling? In the real world it is UWW. And the UWW has zero to do with high school wrestling in the US. Henry should move on to writing a strip about something he knows about, which is obviously NOT sports in any form.

    Per my previous post of the rules all they have to do is mmake a singlet that covers her whole body but the face and hands. Not a big deal Harry. But you will make it one.

    Every wrestling coach know this

    As Malibu Ed and others have mentioned, I think your local State Athletic Association as per the guidelines set out by the National Federation of State High School Associations governs what wrestlers, for example, can and cannot do such as what to wear when competing on the mat. UWW sounds good, Henry, but following my own high school and their wrestling exploits, I’d never heard of it until you broached the subject today. That’s what our State High School Athletic Association is for. But You da Man.

    Oh man, BHHL coming back with “BOK! BOK!” is the greatest thing ever. And speaking of greatest thing ever, today’s Mopped Up Thorp is not the greatest thing ever, but it’s definitely a thing.

    And for those of you who are fans of my floor work, check out the last two days of Crankshaft. I’ve got a side gig out there in Ohio.
