    Looks like Quill is wearing a suit, not a tux (unless guys wear ties with one). I wouldn’t know; my hub wore a very nice suit for our wedding, complete with a fantastic tie which he still has… ;)

    I always bought my dates a wrist corsage for formals and avoided the issue. Sometimes the florist would make them both ways, pin on or on the wrist.

    Or you could, you know, just let Luann pin it on herself, Quill.

    Luann taking makeup tips from Tiffany. That much makeup would have killed multiple lab rats in testing. Hope Quill in not allergic.

    Maybe Quill was so awestruck by Luann’s party outfit and makeup that he couldn’t keep his mind on task… ;)

    If he had stabbed her in the liver, then it wouldn’t be unreasonable for her blood to be black.

    My comment is about yesterday’s discussion of the colors green and purple. The Wimbledon colors are indeed green and purple. The cummerbund Gunther made, however, is burgundy, not purple. The wedding color suggestion that Brdshtt posted is also green and burgundy. Green and purple do go well together, but I personally prefer the green and burgundy. It is the color scheme my daughter used for her living/dining area, and it is beautiful, I like it better than my own, which is green and peach. (As long as green is involved, I’m okay with it, though.)

    The black blood has two likely explanations.1. Blood is too much for the funny pages. After all, kids aren’t going to read about the situation in Syria, but they might want to see what happens with Luann and Quill.2. Most newspapers print daily comics in black-and-white. Coloring the blood red would look good in color, but in black-and-white it would look like she’s bleeding white.

    The admitted flaw of both these arguments, of course, is that they assume that the newspaper industry is more important than most people think it is.

    @Lauren MQuill’s nerves are causing the pin for the corsage to seem huge and menacing. His fear of stabbing Luann in front of her parents is being shown in the first panel. See how tiny the pin actually is in the second panel?For explanation of the black blood see the comment Sillstaw made above.

    Any guy would be a little nervous but with mom (and dad) standing right there as he pins the corsage on, come on, give the guy a break.

    Panel 1 is Nancy’s overwrought imagination and concern that her little baby is turning into a woman, with a boyfriend(!), before her very eyes. In panel 2 her perfervid imagination gives way to rational thought and perhaps even a smidgeon of relief at seeing Quill’s nervousness…. Luann is looking very grown up and dangerously hot in panel 2.

    Quill definitely has an imagination if he thought that buying a corsage in the housewares department was a good idea. Luann looks so pretty, but that corsage is just not pretty.

    My wrist corsage is still in my cedar chest. After the prom, Mom stuck it in the fridge where it freeze-dried until she cleaned out the fridge several years later. Then it went into the cedar chest.
