…and by herself with no backup…..
4 panels, 2 blunders for Tiff.
This is not going to end well.
If you ladies are uncomfortable with men staring at your chests, PLEASE don’t use them as billboards.
It could be worse. Her shirt could have said “ICE.”
Sheraton on a Wicked theme:
Let us be glad
Let us be grateful
Let us rejoicify that goodness (and expensive lingerie) could subdue
The wicked workings of the Eiffelly one.
Isn’t it nice to know
That good will conquer evil?
The truth we all believe’ll by and by
Outlive a lie (about Souffle)
For you and I live to another day.
No one mourns the Wicked
Hey Les. Yell LOUDER! I don’t think Your Mom Heard You! (Excuse Me, Miss)
Les, I gotta admit this is one BRILLANT Idea of Yours. Tipping Your Mom off about Tiffany’s “plan” to Bring her down. Ha! Tiffany will waltz in and find everything on the Up and Up! Epic FAIL!
Your Mom will be SAFE, and She’ll think so Highly of You She’ll Double Your share of tonight’s and every night’s “Take.”
And Then Later, (And this is the Beauty Part) You can tell a Tearful Tiff that You have absolutely NO Idea what went wrong, but come what may, You’re Here for Her 24/7, Night or Day No matter What with Your Shoulders for Her to Cry on! She fall head over heels for Ya. Excellent!
Just Think. You Save Your Mom’s hide, She thinks Highly of You, She double Your share of take, You Comfort a Tearful Tiffany, and then You’re able to get into Her Pan….WHAT?
OH! (GULP) Uh Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiee, Tiffany!
Pretty sl – ick, Greg! :)
Just remember Tiff; Ann Eiffel has been playing this game a lot longer than you have. With a lot better results.
I’m already suspicious of Les’s true agenda. He acted “Ahhh, Tifffaaanny”??? Not so Les. He’s up to something. He better not throw a monkey wrench in Tiffany’s showdown with Ann.
Okay so the battle is about to start. My question is whether the son will betray Tiffany to save his mom from shame, and possibly worse, or will he betray his grifter mom, even though she has been a terrible mom. The distinction between Gunther and his over-mothering mom, and Les and his criminally-negligent mom cannot be more stark. Where does his heart lie?
You are not starting well, Tiffany…
Greg need to stop watching Andrew Llyod Webber shows
Tiff is one wicked little lady!!!
Les may be trying to play both sides.
Does Tiffany honestly think her father hasn’t shown Ann a photo of her? Even if she’s gained a few pounds, she hasn’t changed her hair or face at all. She might as well use her real name. Or better still, she could have just called the cops and let them handle this instead of relying on some risky venture like this.
Is this where Fay becomes part of the plot line again? I know Ann is evil, but I didn’t figure her for trafficking minors.
Souffle Lingerey…. see, not false advertising, she never claimed it to be real lingerie!
This girl is soooself centered!!!
I will hope Tiffany would win but I would bet on Ann.
Go Tiffany! I mean, Sheraton! Ick her! I mean, sic ’er!
Hey Les, it can’t take that long to read one word
I hope that Tiffany’s dad is NOT involved in the scam
Stretching out to be another cliffhanger by Sat.
My prediction: Plan will backfire. Les will have played a part in it. Unknowing, Tiff will seek solace from Les. Gunther will see thru the subterfuge, Tiff will not. Much jealous drama to follow.
Ick! Love the shirt!
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Like two trains approaching each other at high speed, the result is not going to be pretty and there will be plenty of damage on both sides.
Hey Greg, just wanted to acknowledge (zooming out from the immediate panels) — how far you (& the Luanniverse) have come in the last 10-15 years. This is taking on the shape and texture of a real graphic novel (in a good way!) — Multiple plotlines, humor mixed with pathos, plot and ambiguous situations, mixed motivations. Kudos 2 you & yours! Tally Ho! Let the games begin! Go Tif!
I guess I’m a dirty old man. I read the middle two panels as “lick”.
Surprising that you never see V.D. as an abbreviation for today’s date.
Let’s HOPE this ends with a George Peppard moment at the conclusion of all this, with Tiffany saying, “I love it when a plan comes together!” (Maybe with or without a fired-up cigar, but HECK! Tiff may want to celebrate!)
My beloved Tiffany is pretty slick, quite the maverick. She will end this trafficking in sick tricks on the thick-as-a-brick hicks, licking the nogoodnik chick who cheated her friends in a way which simply isn’t cricket.
Or maybe she won’t.
The Evans’s bought a little time. On with the action!
Let the epic fail begin!
She is betrayed.
Odds are Ann already knows who Sheraton St. Louis is being that he was around her high school friends not to mention who her father is.
Does not bode well. I certainly want Tiffany to win this for her self-esteem most of all.
Tiff is a little shaky in the starting blocks. So, ruthless Ann should embarrass her until some unexpected help arrives, like TJ, or Toni, or even Leslie.
I’m afraid Tiffany actually believes her own hype.
Today reads to me like the “Mid-Week Filler” that is common on Wednesday. However, there are still a few things that seem worthy of commenting on:
1) It is surprising that Les, with his background, so easily hollers out “Tiffany Farrell!” when he should easily recall this is the start of a “Sting” or perhaps “Paper Moon” sort of scheme in which he is at least ancillarilly involved.
2) The “ick” statement was, IMO, the funniest part about today. I enjoyed that.
3) The actual word, printed on her shirt, “Wicked”…. I guess this can be taken on several levels…. a) Tiffany is going to “down and dirty” in her fight with Ann (therefore, "wicked), b) a reference to the musical (which is about the two witch characters from the Wizard of Oz)…. which can serve as a allegory of sorts for what is happening here… Tiffany vs. Ann, and c) a current, frequently used colloquial phrase by younger folks today…. " it is ’wicked’" (it is very good).
4) I still feel a bit nervous about Tiffany here…. I worry a bit that her desire for “vengence” may make her effort too much… and she lands in trouble too. Instead, I hope that her focus is more only on “justice” which should help her keep her actions appropriate… and keep herself safe.
Right now I tend to agree with those that think shouting out Tiff’s name was a tip off to Ann Awful. I wonder whose name he put on the list, Ferrell or St. Louis? Sounds like it was Ferrell. Either way mom could now know who the ringer is.
Thinking about this more (thinking more about a comic? get a life, Someguy!).
Ahem, thinking more on this, I don’t think The Plan is going to either succeed or fail. The entire arc is going to take a sudden left turn shortly. Will Ann’s supplier be Tiff’s dad? Something off the tracks is going to happen…
I see Ann’s way out of this. Look at the sign, closely! She spelled Lingerie Lingery. She can claim it’s knock offs and get free of this.
Why is Tiffany wearing Luann’s blouse?
Les is the weak link in every chain.
Sheraton is not off to a good start here.
Maybe the week will get better (as someone once said).
Things could get ick-y, but wICKed would be more fun….
Putting the ‘ick’ in ‘wicked’!
It’s really tuff to get rid of an old wolf. Not a chance there. They always and I mean always figure a way to turn things around and slide out of any trap and make you feel good about it.
Tiffany has her work cut out for her, that’s for sure.
All so ICK-y to me!!!
It doesn’t take 1 whole minute to read a couple words.
