It's always funny when outdated newspaper strips attempt to make their way into the 21st century, but "Gil Thorpe" seems to be providing genuinely relevant information about the internet and why you shouldn't post pictures of yourself doing illegal things -- like drinking underage -- on Facebook, where everyone can see them:

As Josh from The Comics Curmudgeon says:

It looks like the current "Gil Thorp" storyline will be not so much "the Internet is terrible" but "don't put pictures of stuff you don't want people knowing about, such as pictures of you breaking the law, on the Internet, you stupid jackass." This is actually a pretty useful lesson for today's teenagers to learn, so it's kind of too bad that none of them read "Gil Thorp."
