    And for my next and slightly more intelligent comment, Tiffany is being more horrible than usual.

    She isn’t quite taking candy away from babies, but she is taking a dance away from kids whose age is still in the single digits!

    Chances are, Gunther, Knute, and lots of other guys will also be old, wrinkled, and single at their 50th high school reunion. She will have her pick of guys again!

    JPW, or anyone else, if you’re doing a “playlist”, I’ll suggest these songs, appropriate for Tiffany’s case of a “Loose Truth” …“How Can I Be Sure?” the Rascals“Maybe I can Fool Everybody Tonight”, Crack The Sky“True”, Spandau Ballet“Lies” by various artists, including Linda Ronstadt

    Hello Parents: Are you aware that a recent hire at the school, one with non-existent skills in child-development, is currently encouraging your children to prepare for an event, in which they are not invited? If you have any concerns regarding these actions, please contact the administrator at www.questionablemanaging.org

    All would have been fine if Tiff had asked the kids to volunteer to help make flags, just to help out. Unfortunately, Tiff just isn’t wired that way; she suffers from the “What’s in it for me?” syndrome.

    Tiffany, dear, you are being a cruel, abusive, child-exploiter. There is little that can be more detestable. Luann, use any means necessary to set Tiff straight—or if she won’t go straight, see to it that she goes horizontal (as in unconscious).

    Ok. Tif has been sloppy in dealing with the kids. She over promised and under delivered. All she had to do is tell the kids they’d be helping with a big boy/girl dance and they’d have loved it. Re: “kids just don’t want to be bored.” Tif’s fundamental insecurities, probably from a rough home life, leads her to always offer something, as she believes people only do things to get something. Luann is trying to show her, but tiff will need a larger lesson than this. Tiffs reaction here will be to get frustrated (since she can’t understand) and walk away (quit). But probably not before grabbing the decorations. Will we always have tiffs fundamental problems rubbed in our faces like she’s pure evil and inredeemable. This parody will run its course, lapsing from funny to sad to entirely predictable (ok it’s already there). Personally, I’m ready for a surprise.

    It seems Tiff simply doesn’t have a clue…or refuses to get one… {sigh} I hate to say it, but maybe the only thing that will get her attention is a bit of “humbling…” a la “Paris Hilton/Lindsay Lohan L.A. County style.” 30-60 days should do, but a full 30-60, not a “release after 48hrs.”

    Speaking of jail, Argy, I saw this AP news article tweeted this morning re: your two Florida teen girls. Looks like the older teen cut a deal to avoid the SOR.

    Blah, blah, blah. You said he NEVER gets a grade above an F. BS called successfully as he went to DC on the class trip and he had to have a C average to do so. Therefore, he has gotten grades (lots of them) above an F. Cut it out, Lev, you can not defend this one.

    Those prove that Knute is not serious about school, and that he sometimes fails classes taught by Mr Fogarty. They do not prove that he fails all his classes, or that he has less than a C average. They also predate the Washington trip by quite a lot. (Not that I really doubt there are plenty of more recent examples.)

    And they also included it on the “Song For You” album… – There’s a bit of humor on it, if you have it on cd or still have the vinyl… the song with wordplay in the title: “Flat Baroque (Piano Picker)” and the last song on side one of the album version, “Intermission”, where they sing the line “We’ll be right back… after we go to the bathroom…..”

    If he gets an A in woodshop and an A in PE, a B in Newpaper, and a C+ in Social Studies and whichever Math/English (it varies from strip to strip) Fogarty is not teaching, he squeaks in for the trip. Add to that, he may get credit for some sort of extra curriculars. He also may wind up with a D in the class he is failing in any given strip, as Fogarty and Phelps are on him about assignments, not the total class grade. You don’t have to be very close to perfect to average a C+.

    “Evans didn’t do the history to figure out the Knute/grades issues andas such he has misrepresented information in Luann yet again. He probably also didn’t figure that someone like Levi would take the time to call him on it and ignite a debate on Luanalyzers.”This is the true reason, of course.

    Maybe it won’t be necessary to keep Tiffany in Pitt after Luann enrolls in community college there. Tiffany can move to Hollywood and still come back from time to time to visit, while Luann meets one or more Tiffany-types among her new classmates.

    But it would violate Tiff’s idea of foisting the work onto others gratis. ^Yes, this is so, but it can be superseded by her realizing when either the “game is up”, or when she knows what the best deal is… just like she realized that she had no option but to tell the truth (courtesy of Luann’s reasoning), even though it was not her idea nor her desire…..
