    Soooo – Les flicks a small piece of mushroom or something at Gunther. Gunther will reciprocate by flicking a tiny piece of icing back at Les.


    History’s first miniature food fight.


    One of them will say, “Flick you, man…!”

    Hmmm i’m glad tiffany left. These boys are regressing in maturity in monumental strides. I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before they’re trading “i know you are but what am i.” But i have the feeling Tiffany is standing at a window watching these boys fight over her(i’m sure she heard them screaming.)

    I think Les is trying to goad Gunther into throwing the cake at him – giving Les an excuse to pound Gunther. Gunther needs to be saved by the bell (doorbell).

    The staging is interesting here. The action is occurring in the downstage hand, which makes Gunther appears to be left-handed. You can tell Evans is thinking very theatrically.

    Okay. Les “fired” the first shot. Note that the lads have reversed positions from yesterday. Quite revealing IMHO. Note also that Les quite calm and collected.

    Now, if anybody thinks that Les is still going to be standing upright tomorrow, ready to receive Gunther’s “fire,” then guess again. He gonna DUCK, folks and that cake is either going to spatter against the wall or in the face of anyone that just happens to walk through the front door. I’m guessing that person may be Tiffany who has returned to apologize for starting this whole thing with her “Two dates on the same night” fiasco, or Al, come to see what all the commotion is about, or even Irma.

    If it’s Tiffany, then that pretty much ends any chance of Gunther has of even remaining “friends” with her. Les Wins.

    If it’s Al, then it’ll prove My theory that the first Al is ever depicted communicating with Gunther on Strip, He yelling at him. Les Wins.

    If it’s Irma, she’ll Boo Hoo Hoo, “GUNTHIE! How could you DO this to Me?!!?” Les Wins. But that’s okay. It would be a refreshing change of pace to see something that would wipe the smile off her face.

    The escalation continues. Shouting to threats to assault and now assault and battery.GnK are teasing us with the Gunther character. Is this a defining moment for Gunther. Have all the disruptions in his life put him in a crisis situation? Which way will he go.

    The way things have worked over the years with Greg is that Gunther will continue the escalation and perhaps a very brief fight will break out, typically just one blow. Then, long term, Gunther will revert to norm.

    I am Luannfan A# 1 I have been told, and I usually enter a positive spin on any particular arc, or the strip itself as a whole, but I have to say that Greg and maybe Karen have drawn themselves into a stalemate here. We are spending nearly two weeks of after Tiffany fiasco time between Les and Gunther, without any idea of a comedic, character resolving, or arc ending resolution. It just goes on and on and on, and Saturday is still three days in the distance. They are not going to physically fight each other, food fight might, might, be on the menu, but what then? This rag has been wrung as far as it can, no more soap and water of any consequence is left in it. Even I would like this wrapped up so we loyal Luann fans can move on.

    How to prevail against Les:

    1) Quickly spot the plate of Pate on table.

    2) Repeat step 1….but this time it’s a butterknife you’ll spot.

    3) Rapidly begin to fashion Pate into a shape.

    4) If done to the proper specifications, shape should resemble a backpack.

    5) Put on backpack.

    6) Now swing it.

    7) If intended target should remain standing, quickly find another malleable food item, then repeat steps 1-7. Do it twice, not for good measure, but just because.

    8) If subject should remain standing, but also laughing at you, refer to manual 3G, and proceed to don elevator shoes, clothing with extra weight inserts and comb hair into a style that would resemble an Ox.

    9) If none of these are available, as a last resort, you must now transform into the creature you know as: “The Incredible Sulk”™®©.

    10) Optional: Add one teaspoon of salt, bring to boil, and allow tempest to stew in teapot, for 4 hrs.

    Ugh. “Food Fight” foolery continues.

    I am so very sadly finding this week even more annoying than last week’s “Pre-Fight” panels. I am so not finding this up to usual “Luann” quality. I think this arc thus far has to be a foolish red herring of some sort by Greg and we are going to get some amazing end result… or at least a shocking cliff hanger in the end. I am hoping this is the case. And, if Sheriff’s context to his “clues” for us were legitimate… something good will happen.

    But, who the hell knows at this point? Other thoughts:

    1. Les’ flicking a tiny piece of food at Gunther….. is it enough of a provocation to goad Gunther into retalitating? And, if so, will this goad Gunther into a huge return fire that will make him seem more the “bad guy” or the “agressor”? Or will Gunther not take the bait and retain some of his common sense?

    2. I find it interesting that Les does not seem actually angry at this point. He seems more just trying to push Gunther’s buttons. I wonder if this is an intentional emotional change we should note… or if it is just a momentary gap before his anger returns?

    3. Gunther’s face with the whites of his eye showing is a little disturbing. I do recognize that it is done to show him looking downward at the crumb of food Les flicked at him, but it does look odd. I guess I am glad Gunther does not get eyes drawn like Luann. :)

    Les looks remarkably calm for a guy who was angry enough to take a swing a few days ago (only a minute ago in-strip) and who has received nothing but more provocation since that moment. I see the characters’ emotional states are not gonna be driven organically but rather by the needs of the punchline at any particular moment. It’s a shame that this strip keeps dropping the ball like this; it’d be nice to actually see the characters pushed to their limit for once instead of always going for the cop-out ending where nothing is at stake and all the character dynamics either stay the same or get reset back to what they were before.

    In North America, women are 50.5% of the population.Thanks to stress, more heart disease (maybe where fat accumulates) and war, men die off, on average, before women.There are indeed lesbians who are not interested in dating or being in relationships with men. To balance that out, statistically, there are gay men not interested in relationships with women.

    HOWEVER, more to your point, the trend on US College campuses has reversed from 20 years ago: last year 56% of college students were female.So, like the lady in Hunger Games might say to Gunther and Les, “May the odds be ever in your favor, ya dumbasses!”-——(relevant article: )

    You don’t have to be young to get into a food fight. My ex’s aunt and uncle were in their 70s. The uncle grabbed a can of spray whipped cream and coated the aunt with it. She grabbed the other can and did the same to him! She then made him go to the store and get more whipped cream for the family dinner.

    It’s unfortunate that Les and Gunther just can’t be friends and shrug off this episode of animosity and rivalry. Les has no accepted ‘mother figure’ in his life and Gunther has no real ‘father figure’…..they both seem to be truly missing the advice their original parents would have given them.

    They need a counsellor and big hugs! Shake hands and go ‘back to your corners’ guys!
