Mullet boss is boss.

Panel 3: sheer perfection.

For a minute, I thought Jenkins really had something going for him.

One job I had a coworker who "did" Fantasy Football (I can't bring myself to say anyone "plays" that). He expressed puzzlement at one team in his league: The Perfection Graboids.

Once I stopped laughing I mentioned the film Tremors, which of course he had seen but never made the connection. After a second or two of brow furrowing, the light went on.

"Damn it," he said. "I can't understand why I missed that."

So much cleverness. I'm amused.

As much of a jerk as he can be, I always find it hilarious when the boss wins in a strip; he's surprisingly clever for such an idiot. Him beating Jenkins is even better, since I don't have to feel sorry for the loser.

one of the better ones, pannel 1 killed this time!

By having Jenkins mock fantasy football, it’s like mocking it then saying “just kidding” but we’re left not knowing if you were kidding or not, which is brilliant.
20 or 30 more revelations like this one for Jenkins (panel 4), and people may not cringe when he enters a room.

@Roland - I don't think mullet boss is an idiot at all. He's just focused. On himself.

Panels 1 & 3. Pure win.

"It's a mystery... to you."

Ah, the delightful irony. We take pleasure in the torment of Jenkins, especially when he's (oddly enough) exactly right.

Back in the day I worked for a shop that sold sports trading cards and comics (I was there for the comics). This strip came 12 years too late; As loathe as I am to compare myself to Jenkins, I would have LOOOOVED to mess with people and their 'football fantasies'! LOL

lovely ... who's messing with and who's being messed with?

Jenkins puts forward a good show in this strip.

Wow! I'll admit, the twist got me. Great episode. I will definitely be quoting this one.
