I agree with you Argy…. but with the signs of some growth in him over the last several months… there may come a time where Les does indeed act altruistically.
Oh, yeah, I forgot Mordy gave up coffee for Lent. I express sympathy to you, Mordy!
Mordy! That would indeed be “comically horrific”. :)
That would be a very creative twist that would potentially help to avoid a more violent set of actions. Hopefully Les has made a photocopy and does plan that.
So, today has turned the comic back to focus on Les and his moral development. Thoughts of mine include:
1) Of course… will Les give the list to Sheraton/Tiffany or to Ann?
2) Because of the developments over the last several months with Les, I feel confident predicting he will give them to Sheraton/Tiffany.
3) But, I could see Ann jumping in as he starts to give them to Sheraton/Tiffany and taking them or ripping them up or some such thing.
4) In terms of the greater scheme of things, while the list would help Sheraton/Tiffany be able to push for full restitution for everyone swindled, even if Sheraton/Tiffany does not get the list, it will have little impact on her moral victory in this case.

With that said, what will happen beyond Saturday?
1) I am hoping that we do have the arc continue into next week and it somehow brings in the actual presence of Tiffany’s father.
2) But, I still have a feeling now (started a bit on Wednesday) that perhaps Greg is going to keep Tiffany’s father a “shadow” figure who really is not physically shown in the comic.
3) I also think there is a strong possibility that Greg may break the story arc here on Saturday… and Monday will be some other story arc.
Yep, you are correct. Sorry for the misspelling. I was typing on “the fly”.
My mind apparently is into an awful lot of reminiscing lately. A few days ago, Tiffany’s actions were having me hear the incredible “The Mod Squad” theme music run through my mind, and now today, Tiffany in the last panel for some reason keeps having me think about Sharon Gless (Cagney from “Cagney & Lacey”). What’s next?!?! Will Tiffany channel Farah Faucet tomorrow and I will reminisce about “Charlie’s Angels”?
Finally, now, do not get me wrong….. I truly enjoyed the show and thought William Conrad was exceptional, but I sure as hell hope that the week does not conclude on Saturday with Tiffany channeling Conrad when on “Cannon”. :)
Not really sure what to think today about the action. Just some random thoughts:
1) Tiffany collecting the refund for herself and her friends is fine. But, will there be other repercussions for Ann other than the apparent “leave town” suggestion by Tiffany’s last comment?
2) There are of course a lot of other people who were scammed at the parties. Will they somehow be compensated? It seems a very difficult aspect to build into the comic story line, so I am not sure if that will be portrayed or not.
3) I feel this somehow will HAVE to lead to interaction between Ann, Tiffany’s Dad, and Tiffany. But, that too seems a bit difficult to segue into given the severity of the issues of product infringement (at least as reported by many yesterday).
4) With so many faux items available on-line, however, there may be some sort of wiggle-room that will keep Ann in the story line for some time yet and we could then have an Ann/Tiffany/Dad interaction… which I would find very, very interesting.
5) But, now I am also wondering if perhaps Greg’s plan is to keep Tiffany’s Dad’s character as a “never seen”, “behind the scenes” character as he has always been (other than, I believe, a small back of the head image at graduation)? If so, perhaps Ann WILL just up and leave and we will start a new arc on Monday.
Mike could save a whole helluva lot more by also quitting shaving. I did, many decades ago and if I added up how much I saved…..
I am surprised that Ann “confessed” so readily. I would have thought she had one or even several back-up plans for such a contingency. What does this now guide me to consider….
1) Is Ann actually panicking and is too flustered to think through a more careful response about her swindling?
2) This seems a VERY fast response here…. so is this swindling serving simply as a fast moving vehicle to get to the real “meat” of the story…. Tiffany and her Dad and Ann…. the relationships/lack of relationships between the three?
3) If this is really simply the way to get to the story about Tiffany/Dad/Ann…. how will the “swindling” aspect here be resolved? It seems that for the story arc about her Dad, Tiffany AND Ann would likely both remain present in Greg’s story to flesh out the details more easily.
