Mom: "CALL 911- STAT!"
Mom: "Would you like some help, Quill?"
January 17, 2018
I almost fell off my chair when I read the first panel before reading the second one LOL… ;)
“Worst Case Scenario”“Pin Number”“Poor Q Pines And Sweats”“Stuck In The Fiddle With Lu”“Quill’s Got A Point!”
“Stick-y Situation”or “Australia Jones And The Corsage Of Doom”
One of the scariest thing I ever did.
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.
shouldn’t blood be red? colorists are smoking crack again
“Sponsor slots carefully placed for” …ZZ Tuxedo Shoppes… “For that look that is sharply dressed and piercing!” – and by…
Kitty’s Kaboodles… “Get in on the fun… cos yarning is contagious!…”
Maybe Quill was so awestruck by Luann’s party outfit and makeup that he couldn’t keep his mind on task… ;)
What the heck is that supposed to be
Just when we packed those “stuck” songs away, I guess we have to find them and fish them out, again!…uhhh….. – “Stuck In The Middle With You” (Stealer’s Wheel)“Stuck On You” (Lionel Ritchie)“Stuck With You” (Huey Lewis and the News)“The Point (the album)” by Nillson“Look Sharp!” (Joe Jackson)“Sharp Dressed Man” (ZZ Top)
“Needles And Pins” (by Jackie DeShannon. The Searchers, Cher, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers with Stevie Nicks, Gary Lewis & the Playboys, Smokie, the Turtles, the Ramones, whew!)
Did not get to post this yesterday, But Luann really has become a beautiful young woman. You’re a lucky guy,Quill.
If he had stabbed her in the liver, then it wouldn’t be unreasonable for her blood to be black.
Does the shirt at the very least have French cuffs?
Black blood? She’s a Leviathan! Run, Quill!
“Those who have likened our life to a dream were moreright, by chance, than they realised. We are awakewhile sleeping, and waking sleep.” (Montaigne/ 1533-1592)Writing of sleep, my IS is sound asleep…seems like a good idea to me; ’nite all… ;)
I am so confused by the first panel. Did Quill spill black blood all over Luann? WTF?!
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.)
Do Millennials still do the corsage thing? That went out with Potsie!
Nancy yells “911-stat”. OK I get 911, what the hell is stat, some acronym?
FIRST Monday’s Strip, Now THIS.
Is EVERYBODY in the Vast Luanniverse Hallucinating This Week???
Quill is wearing a black undertaker’s suit. Foreboding much?
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.
I was thinking that she is actually a pod creature!
“Prom,” directed by Quentin Tarentino…
@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.
I didn’t realize Luann was an alien with black blood….
Given what’s already—ahem—probably occurred between these two, I wonder why Quill’s so dang nervous?
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.
Must be interesting, going out with an actress.
Luann’s prom now has a “Game Of Thrones” wedding theme???
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.
First frame was an out-take from “Kill Bill”.
I suppose the blood was colored black so it wouldn’t be so graphic.
Protecting our delicate sensibilities.
Because Luann is a character drawn with ink , of course her ‘blood’ is black
> Quill you dunce, you’re not supposed to stab her with anything till AFTER Prom.>With “anything”? You mean with his… “Quill”?
Uh-Oh… Luann’s a big girl. Get it right, Quill.
I still can’t decide whether the person hallucinating the first panel is Quill or Nancy….
Can’t tell if Quill has the cumberbund on.
If prom night starts off like this, we should expect it to end up like “Carrie”!
Thanks joel and everyone else for your explanation of stat. Had no idea the term somehow is emerging, or has emerged, into our vernacular, and I read papers and visit hospitals a lot. I guess the use of “asap” is passe!
Comic strip characters bleed ink.
-does Luann know about this-Never mind Luann, when did he forget about Bernice??
In the second frame, Luann’s face looks so much like Nancy’s face. Our little girl is all grown up now….
-the picture I put up yesterday was gross-The pic you posted yesterday WAS gross, more than today’s colorful hallucination.
Why is Luann bleeding black ink?
She’s a squid.
The first picture is obviously imaginary (showing only his FEARS.) .It never happened. .Note that the pin is a long as a sword. The black blood may be an error.
-medieval depictions of young women getting stung by rosebush thorns then bleeding were thinly disguised metaphors for “getting deflowered-That sure makes me wonder about the old story called ‘Sleeping Beauty’….
At first I thought it was an ink squirting sponge, kind of a gag corsage. Luann very expressive first panel.
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.
“…you know doctors have to come up with a latin word for everything to maintain their air of mystery…” .Ha, good point. And they enhance that self-imposed aura by scribbling out their prescriptions :)
I’m going with Quill.
Better be careful there Levi…. Bernice can get awwwwfullly jealous! :-D
Of course he is nervous, this is often the first time a teenage boy has been this close a a teenage girl’s boobs. At least with the parents watching.
I like how Luann bleeds black orc blood. ;P
Reminds me of the opening song of “F-Troop”.(“When pinning it on some blood was spilled.”
And happy Passover to Bernice, her family and friends! Know she won’t get “passed over” at the Prom, not in that dress! (The big moment will be when she and Delta arrive at the dance— what will happen then?)
yeah, really too heavy on the makeup, Luann (not that Quill minds)
Thank God for small blessings!
Don’t think it is the makeup….
Oh, these sight gags of the last two days are amusing….I want to see some substantial story combined with crucial developments! However, this leisurely pace might keep up all this week, with the big Prom action taking place next week. I don’t know—something or some sort of thing has to happen soon!
“And just perhaps the Ink Spots will make a musical showing.”^Heh heh!!!!
Is that corsage one of these? http://www.kfc.com/corsage/
This is why you go with the wrist corsage.
Thanks for the explanation Reedcomicks!
I had to laugh at all of the descriptions of Luann’s “blood…” ;)
Quill and Gunther for King and King of Prom.
Quil is nervous because he cares
it took 2 looks to realize that Luann was being impaled omg….
Kind of graphic for a family strip, isn’t this?
