Never mind that “Hound of the Basketballs” is an old, old gag…check out the full, white beard that Jim has grown over the weekend! Impressive!

Apparently Jim saw the Adventures of Tin Tin movie over the break and is going for the “Snowy” look.
Apparently, Batiuk couldn’t decide whether to insert Jim or Crazy Harry in today’s strip, and just decided to split the difference.
Perhaps Les could trick Bull into reading “The Backboard Jungle” instead.
Oh, and notice that the face on Bull’s ass is shedding a tear in its sleep today. I have a feeling we’ll all be bored to tears and snoring fast by week’s end, too.
Bull’s pants pocket ass face actually appears to be WINKING at the reader. Shudder.
Another whole week of “Bull is a blithering, obese idiot who couldn’t coach his way out of a wet paper bag” gags? Sigh. maybe he’s trying to steal some of Gil Thorp’s market share with this basketball crap-ola, I don’t know. Sure is ponderous, though.
Bull: “What…what you say, hoomans?”
Les: “I said we’re reading ‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’ in my fourth period class. Which is confusing me to no end! Since when did -I- teach more than just one period? I could swear that since the 90s I’ve mostly taught one batch of students all day long!”
Bull: “Oh…I had…thing…in brain. Idea? About…uh…the reading thing? Duh….”
Jim: “Good grief. He makes Mortimer Snerd look like Brainiac 5!”
Les: “No, seriously, was I supposed to be doing more than just one of these “period” things for the past couple of decades?!? I’m seriously getting freaked out by it. Next you’ll tell me I’m supposed to get some NEW students each year, instead of always seeing the same kids.”
Oh, fer cryin’ out loud, Tubby- you’re 0 and 2!! (Perhaps the recently saved season is a scant 3 games… THAT would explain Bull’s annoyingly disproportionate despondency!)
Tomorrow I expect Kablichnik will tell Bull that books are “finger-lickin’ good”.
Assface (winking): Check!
Pubic coffee steam: Check!
Bad pun: Check!
Bull the Idiot: Check!!!
Welcome to the New Year, same as the old year!
Sour, I see that you immediately noticed the wink too. This Batom guy is just flat-out f*cking with our minds now, right? I mean it’s gotta be intentional on some sick, perverse level. Shudder.
A big “thank you” to our host for “The Hounds of the Basketball” reprint. It brought back a big smile of my childhood…:)
I’m betting how thankful the Westview sports raffle boosters are for saving Bull’s sorry-ass job.
Maybe the Mark Twain looking guy, after striking out with Becky at the High School Staff and Faculty Only New Years Party, realized if he wants to score with the women of Wankerville, he needed to grow a cheesy goatee like Les. Next, it’s off to the mall for Big Ed’s House of 1970’s Eyewear, with a stop off at Nuthin’ But Mustard Shirts. Still needs to wait for his hairline to recede, but he’ll be bedding down multiple Wankerville wenches in no time.
And excuse me for asking, but do the sports teams show game film on Bull’s ass? Got Almighty, that’s a caboose and a half.
December hoops games don’t really count, since league play generally doesn’t begin until January. Let’s step off that ledge, shall we?
Well, given that Wankerville High has no money but what they raised, and there’s no way in HELL they raised all that much, and running a full slate of sports programs is expensive, I’d say we’re looking at a three game season about to END in January.
Back up onto that ledge, everyone. Single file. No butting in line.

Yes it did, I had that particular comic in a Mad collection–pulp paperback, no color. I think it was the Bedside Mad.
