- Reading the Comics, April 18, 2017: Give Me Some Word Problems Edition but nobody has! I'm disappointed by this.
- What Do I Need To Get A B This Semester? (May 2017 Edition) a perennial.
- Reading the Comics, April 22, 2017: Thought There’d Be Some More Last Week Edition since I went to all the bother of splitting a week mostly to accommodate my pinball schedule.
- Reading the Comics, April 24, 2017: Reruns Edition, which is not to say my comments were reruns. Just the strips I commented on. The comments were new-ish, mostly.

Expert Donkey Kong player Billy Mitchell, hosting the arcade video game championships, has had enough of my high school geometry teacher and hurls him off stage. (Trick of the moment; Mitchell was just patting his shoulder while he walked.)
The side of the Mouse Trap cabinet, because I don't remember before seeing it. While a Mouse Trap was in the Brighton Arcade it was packed alongside many other games so that art of the art went concealed from me.
