    I’d like to know what parts of those ancient clothes to which Gunther was referring (WITHOUT having to use Wikipedia nor Google).

    Gun. Gun? SAVE it. You’re losing Tiffany and forcing many of Us to Google half the words you’re using today. You keep that up, and Tiffany is liable to reconsider Les’ (GAG/VOMIT) “proposal” from last week.

    On a lighter note, Bets is cute. But IMHO, She is VERY CUTE whenever she is shown in profile like in today’s Panel two. (SIGH)

    And while I like that Bets hangs on to Gunther’s every nerdy word, I really like it when Bets interacts with the Strip’s female cast members.

    I got a feeling Bets May one day be the answer to a number of Tiffany’s “problems.”

    Hey, you sass that hoopy Ford Prefect? There’s a frood who really knows where his towel is.

    So for all y’all who are on Gunther for being a nerd, not yet. He’s getting there, but he has a totally different definition of hoop.

    And it’s a wallet purse bag, not a 14th century cup.

    WOW! – With Bets, Gunther is able to flirt with nerdy stuff. Usually that can kill even the first 15 seconds.

    So…of course I had to look them up…a jerkin is a sleeveless jacket usually made of leather…a bumroll is a roll of fabric worn around the bum (duh!)…and a farthingale is a hooped petticoat to form and extend a woma’s shape. A look inside the mind of the artist….Gunther, what DO you have on your mind?

    Ah. A point for me! (Sounding like Luann here). Gunther did make the costumes as I guessed yesterday. Sorry, Tiffany, nerd-speak boring you? Now you know for certain Gunther is not the guy for you but he will always be your friend. Cherish him as a friend who was there for you when you needed a friend.

    In the last panel, as Gunther is telling Bets how he hooped her farthingale, his codpiece increased in size by a factor of 3. Now, we have figured out what really turns him on.

    The reason we have a PAIR of trousers is that back then they were separate leggings and the codpiece was the pouch for your junk

    Also, before I forget, Gunther’s legs got really skinny – see the first panel. His legs have atrophied because he doesn’t need them as he is spending all his time in bed. Bets is wearing him down.

    Gunther better mind his P’s and Q’s around Tiff. If not, Bets will make sure he will need a good nurse. Like Florence Farthingale.

    I have to admit it. Bets and Gunther are really sweet together. And yet, Gunther’s skill in making costumes is impressive and can become a gold mine, if managed by someone with a great administrative talent. Someone like Bets!

    Only Gunther can talk about parts of costuming that sounds like it could be anatomical, without diving in to the perv pool. Know Les, not only couldn’t he make the costumes, any remarks he’d make about them, would certainly fall into the perv pool.

    This chased me back to my smartphone dictionary. I have heard or read all these terms, using in novels or literature of some type featuring Victorian, or Elizabethan periods in Brit history, but this was done is such a brilliant way. Absolutely hottie, cutie Bets, very handsome and happy Gun(ther), sweetly incredulous Tiffany, and hilarity ensuing double entrendre. I think GnkK are hitting their stride for a comic with characters who are young adult.

    Very fun “double entendre” efforts today by both Gunther and Bets. I am not 100% sure how much of the “double entendre” Gunther is realizing he is saying…. I suspect he realizes some of it…. but may be simply being “nerdy-factual” for some. Bets…. I suspect she “gets” that everything they are saying is BOTH factual and a “double entendre”.

    Tiffany…. she too gets the “double entendre” part… but probably ignores or overlooks the factual aspects.

    * * * *

    I must say that this week and last have been WONDERFULLY REFRESHING….. in terms of Gunther and Les….. both have been portrayed in ways that are not the antagonistic “Oscar-Felix – Odd Couple” dynamic that had been most of their story the last year or so. The portrayal of everyone in the last couple of weeks (Brad-Toni) and now Tiffany, TJ, Les, Gunther, and Pru…. have been really great IMO in showing some progression for the characters AND a lot of humor too.

    In case you were wondering: CodpieceDescriptionA codpiece is a covering flap or pouch that attaches to the front of the crotch of men’s trousers, enclosing the genital area. It may be held closed by string ties, buttons, folds, or other methods. It was an important fashion item of European clothing during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Wikipedia

    Tiffany has plenty of attraction to offer for men. If she picks a wrong one its her own fault. Gunther may be a little kinky but not gay. Nice Middle Ages costume, but not female. An engineering student is a great catch although in their little group they may not realize it yet. He may have found a soul mate in Bets.
