Wednesday's Gil Thorp

OMG, not Gail Martin! THE Gail Martin! OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!

OK, I'm over the fake singer. This is an interesting turn of events for Gil Thorp after the Clambake exposure and the Lady Mudlarks' mass shaving. Sure, there aren't any sports going on in the summer, but does Assistant Coach Kaz going to a rock concert really count as a good GT plotline?

It's obviously going in a good direction. The dude who really wants to hear "Tarzana Nights" (which sounds like a great song title because putting the word "nights" after the name of a location isn't tired at all) isn't going to be easily subdued with an irritated "Ease up, friend!", and any reference that involves Assistant Coach Kaz being told to go to the opera is only going to cause mighty baseball player coach assistant coach fists to fly. Kelly might want him to let it go, but the on-lookers in the background know that once Kaz has been told to go to the opera, it's on.

All of this is, of course, distracting from the fact that Gail Martin's hair is impossible.

"Tarzana Nights" is a clever parody of the tiredness of songs that put "Nights" after place names.

People think Gil Thorp is a hopelessly out of touch old comic with bad art and wide lettering, but it's a delicious spoof of such.
