    So they’ve had a lot more than just two dates, apparently. Bets should know him better by now. And Gunther should learn that cell phones have off-buttons.

    Now it could be his Mom on the phone (many girls like a son/Mom connection) or it could be Luann with her impeccable timing OR (think about this for a moment) now that Bets has chosen to stay with Gunther, it is ROSA on the other end of the phone saying she is back in town.

    Oh yeah. These two have a whole lot of “fun” when Bets is not badgering “Gun” into a corner, getting into his business and asking leading questions about HIS friends. ON Strip, yet! Note for Future Reference: All the “Fun” these two have had so far has been OFF Strip, while the Bad Times have been ON Strip! Does that TELL you something, Cheap?

    By the way, Bets. How about asking “Gun” how HE feels about getting Serious NOW and what it means to be Serious with You?

    I knew it! This gal has had Gunther staked Out from day one, as her next, maybe possibly FIRST, Real boyfriend. The only thing left for her to do is to put a large ring in his nose and get a hot branding iron and brand a large “B” into “Gunny’s” backside, “cattle style.” And declare what she’s gonna do to him if he so much as Even looks at another woman.

    I dunno, My Fellow, Most Respected Luannatics. This “Thing” MIGHT work, for awhile at least. Either THAT or “Gunny” is going soon WISH he’d had DELETED his Date Pic Profile……,

    MD and I called it. We, or at least I will gloat for now. Now I know this comic can go in a total unexpected direction, and clearly the theme of this arc is that Gun now has a girlfriend with his interests, who is interested in him, who is a hot as a blast furnace, who liked him from first time on the phone, and he likewise. It could mean a choice between his needy friend, and Bets, or she might jump in and try to help, while still being possessive, and protective, a ninja girlfriend. But judgmentalism, can be blinder to what is really going on sometimes.

    I’d love it if Bets reaches into Gunther’s pocket – takes out his phone – and says, “Gunther’s busy right now – he’ll call you later.” Then after putting the phone back in Gunther’s pocket, Bets lays a big wet one on him. Gunther can stand up for himself some other time. This could be an important moment for Gunther to get a real taste of having an actual girlfriend. Relax & receive. Gunth & Rosa never got there.

    I don’t see this working out long-term. She’s eventually going to get worn out of him always answering his phone when they’re spending time together. It’ll be nice to see him get to be himself for her though, unlike all the changing he had to do for Rosa.

    This is starting to resemble the whole “Luann & Quill’s first kiss” thing. Y’know, where the second their lips touched his dad called up and said they had to go back to Australia right now? I’m not sure how a plot twist can be so utterly contrived and yet irritatingly predictable at the same time.

    Were these strips published out of order, or did Bets and Gunthie fall into a time warp? Cause this seems a very strange continuation of yesterdays strip where they were glaring daggers at each other. It would have made more sense if this had been Monday’s strip.

    “Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you’ll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others. ”

    ― Jacob M. Braude

    So, Bets is going to have to learn to accept that Gunther does favors for his friends and also takes their calls.

    Gunther is going to have to accept that Bets wants his undivided attention while on dates.

    Hmmm. Is this one of those compressed conflicts? If they both want a relationship and want it to work, it is going to take some compromising. Something more than, “Shut off the phone, Gunther!” and “Don’t be so controlling, Bets!”

    Seeing them work this through could make for one of the more interesting arcs of recent years.

    I didn’t think we’d get directly to a Bets-Tiffany confrontation from yesterday’s strip, but it might still happen. We are unlikely to witness a display of Tiff’s lingerie even on Gunth’s mannequin, that would shock Greg’s bible belt readers. Do I detect a double-entendre in today’s offering and is there an elephant in the room – or is that all in my twisted mind? BTW, I think it’s Tiff on the phone – Rosa would be a coincidence too far.

    Gun? I do love Gunther’s new nickname. It’s obvious Bets sees him as far more cool than he sees HIMSELF. This could be so good for both of them if she learns it’s ok to trust him and if he will believe in himself as much as she believes in him.

    So, all we actually get to see is them having contrived arguments over awkward dialogue, but off-panel, they’ve done lots of interesting things and become quite close. I get that writing is hard, but maybe don’t emphasize how much more fun your characters are when you’re not writing them.

    Hmm. Today’s effort seems a rather abrupt shift from where we left off yesterday. To me, it feels like it really was meant to be the comic we saw this past Monday first, and then we would have migrated into Gunther babbling with Tiffany on the phone.

    However, assuming today’s effort IS in its correct position . then it looks like BOTH Gunther and Bets have quickly and easily gotten over their respective frustrations from yesterday. If this is how we are to read it…. then this bodes VERY well for the two of them. It is not always possible for a couple to avoid conflict….. BUT, how a couple DEALS with that conflict is going to shape the health of the relationship. Thus far… their conflict resolution this time looks great.

    * * * *

    Yet…. dun, dun, dun…..there is a new damn phone call coming in on Gunther’s damnable cyborg connection. What pray-tell will it be this time? Gunther’s Mom? Les? Bernice? Pru? Big Al? Rosa? (bland) Quill? And, how the hell will this person on the cyborg connection device mess up the Gunther-Bets interaction?

    But, seriously…. in my opinion…. virtually all of this is Gunther’s fault for having (what I consider) very poor phone use manners. He needs to be FAR more aware of how he sounds during his 1/2 conversations, AND he needs to realize like a whole bunch of other people do… that they do not have to exhibit a Pavlovian response every time the damn phone rings. Turn it off!

    If these strips are appearing in the proper order, all I can say is these people have really quick and extreme mood swings, even for cartoon characters. One minute they’re having a stare down like two cats each daring the other to move first, then………

    …………HEY! PRESTO!!

    Everything’s all happy-fine, and they’re strolling along amicably talking about all the fun they have together. Apparently Gunthie did not have his phone on, or didn’t get any calls when they were on those other dates. (Except the first one of course.)

    Well the double entendres are flying off the shelves today. Let’s review the bidding; as bridge players are wont to do. Bets has a “thing” for “Gun.” She wants to have a “thing” together. “Gun” has a “thing” that now “belongs” to Bets. But they do look all cutsie-poo in panel 4. Oops. Then Gun’s thing goes off? (Too funny!!!) Classic vaudeville! Hilarity indeed is ensuing, Luann1212.

    I suppose Bets would have to pick a nickname for Gunther, but “Gun???” I mean, that is a connotation so far from the way “Gunnie” has been portrayed in the strip, lo these many years. We’ll have to see how the other females in the strip respond to the “Gun.”

    I know it’s just his phone ringing, but the visual sure makes it look like Evans may have been implying something else!

    Honestly, tho, why on earth is Gunther getting so many calls? People his age do not voice call and mostly see it as rude when others call them unless it’s an emergency. They use apps on their smartphones to text and communicate.

    Anyway, I like Bets, but she needs to drop the prosecutorial edge whenever Gunther flounders. Building trust in a new relationship means not assuming the worst about your date and grilling them until they prove their innocence.

    On the other side, tho, Gunther is doing a lot to undermine trust by paying so much attention to his phone, giving Bets signals that she is not a priority to him. It’s more and more of an insult each time he does it.

    You’re on a date, Gunther. Put down the phone and be with her. Your friends are supposed to be the ones wondering where you are when a new relationship is beginning, not your date! If you can’t devote all your attention to her for a couple hours, what is the point?

    She set aside this time to be with you. Respect that or stop wasting it.

    Bets started out looking like a black woman. I wish she would remain so. We are living in the 21st century, and mixed relationships should be accepted by the reading audience. The 1960s was long ago.

    Gunther’s phone rings again:


    “Gunther, can I kick your phone?”


    “Sure, Bets, I’d love that”


    “OK, here goes…”


    “OWWW, GEEZ, crazy woman!!! – what the heck did you do that for???”


    “You said it was OK to kick your phone.”


    “Cripes! I thought you said you wanted to kiss my phone…”

    Bets is a good character, based upon all the real-life comments here. Ann Evil and her demonic spawn are good characters in that regard as well. Stories are built on conflict. It keeps us reading and gets us commenting.

    Bets seems to have brought out some strong emotions here, more so than Ann and Leslie. We can’t decide if Bets is good or bad!

    I can only wonder about the experiences some of our commenters have with jealous women.

    Let the hilarity ensue!

    @willow_cougar: According to the US Census, there were 40,491 interracial married couples in the US in 1960, despite many state laws that prohibited it. On July 11, 1958, newly weds Richard and Mildren Loving (ironic name) were asleep in their bed in the state of Virginia when police broke in and arrested them for violating that state’s laws prohibiting interracial marriage. In 1963, the couple asked the ACLU to help them fight the laws, and in 1967, the US Supreme Court ruled that state laws prohibiting interracial marriage were unconstitutional.

    Please stop hating on those of us who were alive during the 1960s. Contrary to popular belief, we are not personally responsible for everything wrong in today’s world. Some of us even marched in Civil Rights marches.

    Rant over.

    I think Bets has a serious crush on Gunther and this is part of the reason why she becomes so jealous when another girl calls him (Luann, Tiff). She hasn’t known Gunther for very long and she has this mistaken view that Gunther is some kind of girl magnet who has a lot of experience. She will soon discover differently.

    I predict (hope) that these too will be holding hands by the end of the week……. and……..that Luann will eventually spot them (holding hands) and realize that Gunther is now off limits to her.

    In the old days, Bets could simply touch his phone hand and ask, “Do you really need to answer that right now?” Dang, kids today don’t know that dating could be fun.

    I like that Gunther has a great nickname. Should be a confidence booster.

    I would prefer Bets being darker—as when she was introduced. It really doesn’t matter anymore and makes it clear to the few for whom it does matter.

    Great exposition to let us know that they have been together a few times.

    This actually made me laugh out loud. Oh Gunther, do you even KNOW what you’re saying? And I wish Greg would make Bets as dark as she was in the beginning. Come on. We’re all grown-ups here. We can handle a mixed race relationship.

    Bets has seized the initiative! And this could be a relationship, if Gunther actually understands what he is saying!
