Gunther is now all — as the owl from “Bambi” called it — twitterpated.
Technically she said she was his “G-friend”, so I am glad Gunther has the nerve to find out that this meant “girlfriend” and not “ghoulfriend” or “glompfriend” or “geasfriend” or “grokfriend” or “geekfriend.”
Danger Will Robinson! The longer a Gunther arc lasts, the greater the odds that G&K will have him screw everything up!
He’s getting farther than I ever could have the nerve to get.
Well, the arc continues. Two things are pretty much sure thing today and the rest of the week:
1) “Folks” will criticize Gun for being a wimp, today.
2) Les is SURE to show up before long and interrupt. And be a general pain in the arse for the rest of Bets’ stay at the Gulag.
Oh and Gunth’s “Bat” just flipped, right side up.
There is a VERY slim possibility that there may be SOME romance taking place between these two before trouble rears its ugly head. SLIM, mind you.
But NOTE one very curious thing: Gunther has yet to be concerned about Les showing up and interrupting. Compare NOW with THEN: https://www.gocomics.com/luann/2019/01/30?ct=v&cti=1289172
This MAY prove to be a tumultuous week for Us handful of Gunther fans.
wow – 5 more days for this theme to progress…..
Bets had to make the move (girlfriend announcement) because Gunther would not.I love her expression in Frame 3: an experienced woman recognizing that her boy needs some training.
“Face it, Tiger …”
Nope, nothing is going to happen. Family comic. Next up, an interruption. Bets anyone (sorry, couldn’t resist)?
Study Bets’ expression in that last panel carefully.
The longer this goes on, though …
You are hot and bothered because for what Bets has in mind:“RESISTANCE IS FUTILE!”
She owns him now. No Irma here to save him now!
I’m glad this arc will continue for another week. It should be over then.
Of course, Less will probably walk in on them Friday. (Omg!)
Geek friend was a good one!
Looks like Gunther is coming out a winner this time. Good!
Why is it hot in here? And why are my pants so tight all of a sudden?
Pretty soon, all bets [clothes] are off…
Geez. Bets look as cool as cucumber. Take lessons from her, Gunth.
I keep predicting the next right thnng with this arc, and I said I would love for Bets to come out of Gunther’s bedroom in the morning, or be at the kitchen, with the lingerie she got from Luann on, under a Star Trek robe with a sweet smile, and Les sees a manly smile of triumph on Gunthers’ newly male face, and…The strip would EXPLODE!! I hope for some version of that. Les is going to come, but after not before please. Bets is super hot, and so is Gunther. And. and…? Remember these are adults people.
Cold baths needed, Gunther. None of that mushy stuff here.
And if it wasn’t for Luann playing around with Gunther’s phone, they would never have met.
So much to do, so little time…
Hmmm, looks like Gunther’s puberty & virginity are both racing for the front door!!! And this time, it’s money in the bank!!!
Why is the voice so high? Why is is so hot in there? Bets can explain it to you and show you how to bring things back into established parameters before the boiler blows.
As stated before, it would great to see some action in this comic strip. But we all know from previous attempts at any form of “intimacy” it always gets interrupted. It won’t be by Tiff, she already left. It will probably be by Luann, Les(god i hope not), or gun’s mom. Sidebar i find it interesting that the batman logo is back to it’s original position.
Not to worry Gunther, Les’, the mood breaker, is about to make his entrance
Me thinks Bet’s is gonna enjoy breaking in this little stallion. If he doesn’t have a stroke first.
Bets’ smirk in the final panel is becoming her trademark.
When does she leave for Peru?
I don’t know about you guys, but I am WAY PASSED Gunther’s pathetic behavior towards females and intimacy. We know he is a virgin, but these reactions are off-putting..
response Gunther DESERVES: “It’s about to get a lot hotter”.... response he’ll likely GET: Romanticus Interruptus.
What? Nobody pleased about Bets’ skin tone? It was quite the topic last week.
Gunther you are nervous from when Bets said that she was your Girlfriend and your voice hit the high notes.
Gunther may be about to encounter the fold in the map.
USED lingerie. USED!!!!
There is only one secondary market for lingerie, and it ain’t other women.
How did we get here?
Note to “Gun”: You’re feeling this way because you’re sprung, boy – you. are. SPRUNG. And you’d best NOT mess this up!!
Stiff upper lip, G-Man!
Gunther is gunna get some……….just sayin
Makes you wonder how steamy tomorrow’s installment is going to be. Will it be as steamy as when Brad and Toni were stripping as they were figuring out their household budget 2 years ago?
Wasn’t it Bets who asked Gunther “Ready to get into some lingerie?”
Awww. Gunther is so pure and precious♡. Bets love him for how sweet he is.
Don’t worry, Les will walk in, say something stupid, and ruin the moment.
You know, Gun may be the only non-virgin among the original regular characters, except Brad and Toni. He was in Peru with Rosa for months. Are we supposed to assume they had a celibate relationship?
Fire the Photon torpedoes and hit warp speed Sulu! We are headed into Deep Space!
Maybe little Gunther getting excited
Did anyone else notice that Bets started out a lot lighter than now? Not that it matters, but what is her ethnicity? Or….is she just tanning as the strip goes on?
Gun is a good guy But dont worry Les will be there soon to screw it up
Make your move, cartoon boy, you’ve held your audience hostage for long enough.
Now, for all you drooling fans looking to see if Gun can “pull the trigger” (as it were)… cue Les’ entrance.
Les will likely interupt this whole thing and start hitting in Bets. Guther will get all Nerd rage on him and one or the other will want to move out.
Is this the “guest house”?
Looking at the “gulag” in panel 2, I’m wondering what happens if there’s a rainstorm and the rain water pools in the middle of the roof?
People who just jump into a relationship without getting to know each other causes problems in the future.
Aren’t they still on their first date?
Gunther, check it out at 90º.
Why is it 118 in there? Oh, that’s just her.
There’s not a subtle bone in his body, is there? (No! Don’t go there guys!)
Somethings bound to pop up.
Remember people this is Tuneville. Can’t go to nuts on the comic pages. On his own Gunther never got it and never will. Gunther can’t drink a soda without getting. She knows what to do.
Kiss her, you fool!
Wonder Woman she ain’t.
Is Bet’s going to suggest, that the lingerie should be on a female form instead of a male mannequin?
That a boy, Gunth. The first move is always the hardest and sweatiest. She’s already told you how much she’s into “your thing”. Flirty innuendo is most definitely “the signal”. ;-)
Looks like a severe panic attack about to take place.
now is the time for him to put his head between…….someone’s……..legs.
Bet’s is much more real than Rosa. Rosa had ro run thing’s all the time. I think Bets is wanting to be partners with G.
Why wouldn’t Tiff stay for the photograph session ? Wouldn’t she want to arrange the lingerie to her tastes?
The room is 78 degrees, it is Gunther that is 118 degrees.
I tend to think we will have the perfect storm where
1. Les arrives home unexpectedly just as Gunther and Bets are exploring kissing on whatever furniture is currently in the Gulag living room. This will cause Bets to be annoyed, Gunther will lose whatever libido he may have, and Gunther will start to get grumpy.
2. And…. Gunther’s phone will ring simultaneously…. and Gunther will exhibit his Pavlovian response to the damn phone by picking it up and texting or talking on it while still grumpy at Les.
3. Luann will bop on over for a few minutes to “chill” with her buddy, G-man. She will knock on the door while Gunther is fuming at Les and talking on the phone.
4. Irma and Al will be be coming in through the back way (into the kitchen) to bring “the boys” some left over pot-roast, meatloaf, and turkey tettrazini casserole that they had been saving for the last few days.
5. Tiffany will have turned her car around and driven back to the Gulag because she forgot something (phone, or some thing or other)… walks in on the melee that is ensuing…… looks startled…..
And then Irma and Al will decide it is the perfect opportunity to have a “Gulag Pot Luck” with all of G-man’s friends.
It’s tempting just to kill Leslie when he sees what is implied.
Just because they’re boyfriend and girlfriend does not automatically imply there will be something physical going on. Greg is just showing the emotional part of surprise on Gunthers part. It is the first time this sort of thing has happened for Gunther. The commitment, what does a relationship like this mean, all the excitement, doubts and worries.
Whatever else happens, she straightened out is Batman T-shirt logo.
more weird sex panic, ok
Bets sure is tan.
There’s a first time for everything
One more possibility…They just had a “define the relationship” moment, maybe next they will have a “define the rules” moment. (Much like the “pool rules” discussion Luann and Quill had in a costume/prop room way back when.) In the ensuing discussion Gunther will disclose his inexperience and put to rest all speculation regarding what exactly happened in Peru (no “little Guntero” exists) as well as the Tiffany’s dorm room episode.
Enter Les and spoil the moment in 3, 2, 1…
You know…this guy is unique among college age males. In fact…his character is not really believable. Sorry…but he’s much too timid by even high school standards.
This is so sweet. I think Gunther is about to have his first true intimate experience. I hope it turns out to be all he could hope for. Bets seems to like all that she is hearing!
I hope Bets has a condom. Gunther would not possess one.
@Locake: According to Czech-born Festrunk Brothers, Yortuk (Dan Aykroyd) and Georg (Steve Martin) of Saturday Night Live (1978, “Two wild and crazy guys”), Bets would have to go to the Statue of Liberty to get birth control devices:
First she’ll blow his nose; then she’ll blow his mind. Maybe more.
Why use a dummy when you have me?
There’s a term which applies here. Too good to be true. Remember the big fake shark in Jaws? That ones name is Les. He’ll be diving in soon for the kill. To lower the temp back down below zero.
There is nothing that a man would rather do after seeing Justice League than to photograph his gf wearing lingerie.
Awwww, she’s thinking, “You’re so sweet…” One peck on the cheek and he’ll faint right there on the spot. You’re mine forever in my clutches. You’ll never escape my magic.
Despite what folks say about Gunther’s awkward shyness, consider that he is the one initiating the possibility of getting intimate. If he was that shy, he would not have been so suggestive and so soon after Tiff left.
Hmmm.. Let me see – Gun lived with Rosa in Peru for months, so he may (or may not) still be a virgin. In any case, I suspect that just about the time he’s about to lay one on her (or she on him) his blinkety-blasted phone will ring, and of course, because he’s Pavlov’s dog, he’ll pick it up. And if Bets is smart, she’ll throw the flipping thing across the room!!! Or Les will come home, which is also a possibility. But this is a family strip, sort of, so I don’t see anything too wild happening. I don’t think we even saw Brad and Toni getting down to business until after they were married. Speaking of which, what’s happening with them these days?
Or, as in films of old, we might just see a shot of a trail entering a tunnel.
However, I do not think Gun and Bets are going to have sex tonight. But some passionate kissing and touching might happen. Off stage or in a dark panel, of course.
It’s because your creator, Greg Evans, has you by the balls … he’s emasculated you as a character that’s completely asexual … or gay, at best. Even you don’t believe you’re real anymore.
Jeepers! Squeaky Gunny is all batty today, I admit, but his bestie Bets is still wearing Wonder Woman. So it goes.
Pose in lingerie, Bets? —I don’t think so, not in this comic strip anyway….
Ooohhh….. It’s Gunther’s first time. We’ve all been there.
If Les gets in and acts up – I think Bets can put Les in his place and Les will retreat to his room.
I still think that they shouldn’t be sharing benefits this early in their relationship; I’ve already stated that said benefits need to wait until after a wedding. But if they do, it would be the stupidest thing in the world for them to do it there, where both of them just have to know Les is about to walk through that door.
Last, and certainly least, I am very disappointed that G&K decided to continue this arc this week. At the very least, the two needed some privacy.
A three-way anything with Les, Bets, and Gun would be the exact opposite of hilarity ensues™!
Kiss the girl.
I think Gunther’s about to become a man!!!!
Cue Rosa showing back up in the very near future.
