Judge Parker Day 5: “Oh God Oh God Oh God” Means “All is Well,” Right?

JP August 26 2016

See? The kids didn’t collide with an oncoming truck in a PSA about drunk driving. And surely Garrick’s exclamation is him being thankful that everything turned out alllllllll right, yes?

After all, as Abbey tells a true-to-character Neddy (“There’s no way Sophie can come to harm because there’s no way she can miss my big day”), when it comes to the Spencer-Driver family things are almost always quite similar to Geoffrey Rush’s outlook in Shakespeare in Love

Unless, of course, the band van is no longer on the road.

Today hopefully is a slight correction course from yesterday’s strip, in which I gave Neddy the musical knowledge of a 49-year-old Gen Xer with song titles that threw off most millennials. (That’s not a dig. It was a bad call on my part.) But mostly it was a line that did not fit the tone of Judge Parker. There will probably be a few more such glaring errors (the sudden daylight at Spencer Farms, however, is a colorist glitch) along the way since I’ve already written several weeks of scripts. But it is something I’m very mindful of now. Plus, as I got further into the writing I believe I got a better grasp of the strip, so I think/hope/blindly hope you will enjoy what is on the horizon.

But yeah, “Oh God Oh God Oh God” almost never means anything good.

    Given the day/night lighting situation, I now prefer to think Sophie and her band were driving back from a gig in New Zealand, and they just fell into the ocean.

    I hope you will still be able to use more terms such as “butt-dialed” and other things that people say nowadays! Nice to see JP come into the 21st century!
