Was there just a game? Is that why the roommate is wearing her uniform to move in?
Congrats to everyone who called it! And… it’s clear that Steph’s got an outgoing personality that’ll give Tiff a run for her money!
Oh, hey, Stefani Bird. Glad you could finally make your appearance… I mean meet your acquaintance.
Tiffany meets her younger self. (cue Twilight Zone theme)
Exposed midriff and short pleated skirt and yet long sleeves. That’s California for you.
I’m sure Kip and Stephani will have many friends that Tiffany can snuggle up to. She’s with her “own” kind now.
This roommate is perfect for Tiffany. She is going to be able to actually see what superficial is, and where her life was headed before being forced to look at life for real. At least as real as she is currently able to.
Just what Tiff needs. A roommate to remind her of high school.
OK, so I was wrong about Kip. But THIS should be interesting… .
Yup, called it, didn’t I? Kip arrived at the room before his girlfriend. Tiffany, what the h3ll? You assumed he was interested in you just because he showed up at your door? It never occurred you to ASK him why he was at your door? Tiffany, you do not go floppy over guys – no guy likes that kind of girl, so please have a backbone and be a strong woman with values, not an airhead who goes after guys.
Oh, my, lots to develop here! Staffani is another Tiffany! They could totally bond, or a more mature Tiffany may see some shallowness and want to grow elsewhere.
Something tells me that if Tiff wants to make a go at Kip, she is going to have to realign those dilithium cristals, tune the plasma manifolds, and hit Warp 10.5.
Also, first impression: Stef might be a dipsy – doodle.
She looks like a rag doll. The number of different drawing styles in this strip is boggling. Imagine having her, Dez (realism) and Bets (Manga) in the same panel.
If she gets out-Tiffed by that stiff she will be miffed and really need a lift.
If you get my drift.
So Kathy Griffin’s her new roommate?
It’s like Tiff is looking into some Twilight Zone mirror and seeing her past self. Okay, Tiffany, wake up, get out, close the door, and we’ll seal off the building.
Tiffany has just been out-tiffed.
Go Moony Mules! Maybe Stefani and Tiffany can bond over cheerleading drills. Or share dietary habits.Tiffany needs to stay on her entrepreneurship path and give up her quarterback dreams.Sometimes Karma sucks !
And Tiff is rooming with ”Tiffany 4.0!” The roommate from H3LL who is the girlfriend of Kip!
Poor Girl! She STILL can’t get a BREAK! Imagine, rooming with an improved version of your former self! DOG? YOU Sir, were right! Karma is literally rooming with Tiff!
But there’s good news, I guess.
1) Stef could be real motivation for Tiffany for self improvement. Perhaps even weight loss. I say that because one of the pics used for Tiffany’s bio shows the old slim Tiffany.A “hint” of things to come?
2) Kip could still introduce Tiff to some handsome running backs. Some that DON’T already have girlfriends, that is.
3) Unfortunately, this could also be good news for (GAG) Les. Tiff could be hanging out more at the Gulag just to get away from her roommate!
Now, Would a jealous Tiffany RAT this bunch out in a moment of anger and frustration?
G&K? Nice job on pulling the rug out from under a character that many of Us CARE about. THIS is on a par with finding out Dirk was Toni’s Boyfriend!
For better or worse, Wild Times are ahead!
Not bad that Tiffany miss the cue from yesterday panel to why the moony university quarterback was knocking on her door! He was looking for Stefani, her roomie.
There was high hopes that Tiffany and Bets would bond over Cynthia Jha’ s book " Tyke to Tycoon. (June 19, 2019 strip). Maybe Stefani has read the book.
This is going to be interesting, to say the least!! Like two wart hogs claiming the same spot of land!!
A new character added to the mix (maybe two).
As usual, Greg dashes Tiffany’s hopes. Someone to outdo her at every turn and remind her of how she used to be. More happiness…
Panel 2: Deer caught in the headlights. Tiffany is in shock. Someone give her a credit card with unlimited balance and a greenlight for a shopping spree—-STAT.
Tiffany will soon learn how the “regular” folks live.
Cheerleading is a profession. Colleges offer degree programs. Stefani sounded pragmatic when she suggested that Kip was hitting on her roomie. Maybe her last roommate was hitting on her quarterback boyfriend ? I doubt that Tiffany can compete with Stefani! Tiffany should stick with her entrepreneurship studies.
Ugh. I don’t think I can handle this new roommate, if her head’s going to continue to look this much like a Pez dispenser. What a lame reveal. What a lame week! But at least it wasn’t more Gunther.
Maybe Kip will be TIFF’s Econ study buddy.
Well, I like her already!
Nothing worse than a roomie who is thinner than you. Let the female competition of weight begin! Could be the start of an eating-disorder arc…. ???
Ah there are other pretty cheerleaders in the world who actually are dating quarterbacks. Kudos to those on both forums who foresaw this coming, and she is loaded down with bags! Although being in a dorm she might not be rich, spoiled princess that Tiffany is slowly devolving from. I don’t think this will be too bad actually, this girl may be a lot of fun, and good for Tiffany. Tiffany is being made to face herself, and the real world. That has to be good, if not a bit painful.
So, a younger Jimmy Fallon and Kathy Griffin?
And so it begins……………..!
Aw sugar is this Karma for Tiff?
I’m already not liking these two new characters. Given that Gunth is going to break up with Bets in the near future (hopefully), she should just wait for him, unless luann snags him first.
Tiff., meet Tiff. There is your twin.
Kip looks like the dingbat quarterback from “Daria.”
STUUUUUUUUUURRRRRIIIIKKKKEEE THREEEEEEEEEEEE!!! YOU’RE OUT!!!
I see someone besides me sees Jimmy Fallon here.
Sorry, not working for me. More Gunther and Bets, please…
Seriously Tiff. Hot QB…did you really think he just dropped into your lap all single and ready to mingle? Judging by her expression, I guess that’s a YEAH
YEEEEEEEES! Tiffany’s roommate is a cheerleader and is with the handsome quarterback! Is Steffani a very nice girl with a gold heart and good grades or is she an unbearable self-centered airhead? Will Tiffany become very jealous of her or will this show her how annoying her past self was? However, this survey will be a complicated cohabitation and i love it.
I’ve been there, Tiff. Every girl I’ve ever tried to get together with has either a boyfriend, is married or a lesbian.
Here come’s another life lesson – Tiffany will not always be #1 with the guys
Are there schools where people stay in the dorms their whole college career? My experience is that they’re reserved for freshmen.
Well she’s skinny! I wouldn’t call her attractive however. Here we go…..
Ohhh, someone who can out-girly Tiffany? This will be interesting!
Kip- No, Stefani I wasn’t, but your new roomie was hitting on ME. Hard! Guess we know where next weeks arc will take us.
Wow, these panels are loaded with possibilities. Does Kip read the business book for only game motivation or is he good enough in finance to “coach” Tiff? Is Stef an airhead or A student? Will Tiff recognize her old self in Stef and progress, or regress and join the fun crowd?
Cue the 70’s pron music…
Tiff’s lost a lot of weight! Being broke can help with that!
And just why is a cheerleader getting a new room in the middle of the year?
Ah! Option 3! Another Tiff! Let the games begin!
Cheer uniform from the 70s. She’s not a tumbler or flyer with that skirt and plunging V-neck.Storyline will be interesting.
Nice to see new characters showing up in the strip. What does Kip’s comment about “Tyke to Tycoon” book mean? “Great motivation before a game”? Thinking of a future NFL career? or that this QB isn’t just a jock but someone who reads?
She looks like she must be Pru’s cousin
Maybe this will be the motivation to trim down, but don’t think so.
Uh oh, someone hotter and cuter than Tiff. Is Kip having a stroke?
Can’t wait to see how many nights Tiff cannot enter her room due to a sock on the doorknob
So! A new triumvirate has entered the lists. Like Jack, Luann and Tara. And in a school setting, no less.
To make this work Tiff must needs be thrown in with Kip in some way. The book may be the common interest entry key, or maybe some class or Hall A doings. Maybe it will merely be via Kip’s association with Steffi-Bird.
I would like to see an arc where Kip becomes attracted to Tiff as he tires of the air-Bird’s affectations. But, just as likely karma (Greg) will continue to deal from the bottom of the deck with Tiff.
This arc promises to be so bad that many of us may prefer another visit from Ann Eiffel instead!
One: To all the folks who believe Stefani will finally get Tiffany to lose the weight, to quote Argythree: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ (AG3’s standard comment to whenever someone says Gunther is gay) (This is now my standard comment to whenever anyone says Tiffany needs to lose weight)
Two: My main objection here is that a cheerleaders’ competition for the attention of the star (whatever it is Americans play) player plunges this entire strip back into the depths of its adolescent origins. Not a desirable development!
From Uni to Juni (high, that is)
huh, So tiff is living with a Zsa Zsa Gabor look a like?
Uber Tiffany! Nice writing!
Was to isn’t…
Oh yeah…. good one…HaHaHaHa
Chicken’s come home to roost.
Rah Rah Sis Boom Bah!
Steffani showed up just in time to peel Tiff off of Kip’s leg.
Oh, this is going to do wonders for Tiff’s self-esteem. (not)
Ruh roh, Raggy….
I hate to use stereotypes, but Kip’s girlfriend looks like a stereotypical Susie Sorority (choke) airhead. [Mea culpa mea culpa]
Oh, oh, someone to out Tif Tiffany.
An Asian-American quarterback? Very diverse!
Tiffany meet your alter ego
Reminds me of my jock son (now a Senior Director at the company he works for). Women used to stop him in the street to talk to him. I came home one night to find 3 or 4 of his female high school classmates sitting out on our front stoop (apparently waiting their turn!) Must be nice….
They remind me of Brittany and Kevin from Daria. Always in uniform.
Will Tiff finally be in her element with these two new additions into her life? I somehow suspect not.
Yes, there was.
REALLY? Tiffany never considered that the good looking QB of the school football team might have a girlfriend?
I think Tiff met her twin :)
tomorrow: Frank ponders his hair loss.
Oh I see, Tiff’s new roommate will basically be like a past version of herself.
The new rookie had her arm blocked by the door. The angle suggests that there is a rolling suitcase, also blocked by the door.
Boy, have I been there.
I keep hearing Stefani talking in ‘Valley Girl Talk’ – Val-Speak.
Greg has such a good eye on the drawings. Tiff is not really a fatty – but no longer a cheerleader…
Looks like Tiffany is going to get a dose of her own medicine! Lol!
The Hitting was going in the other direction, Stefani …
Well, this should be interesting. But, why is Kip’s mouth crooked? Maybe all that football gave him a stroke. Head hits, you know.
Kip and Stef both seem nice. Kip is trying to keep a good conversation going despite being hit on, and Stef seems secure and funny.
They can be great friend and allies. If Tiff just goes with the flow and stays as friendly with Stef as she has been intending to be, she’ll wind up with friends-by-association on the cheer squad and invitations to parties with football players, and all of them will help her find an off-dorm location for Tiff As Nails.
If she goes off on a quest to get her a quarterback, not just any quarterback but THIS ONE, life will get miserable fast and she’ll wind up wanting to move home where Ann will be nice to her (relatively).
Read a comment yesterday (can’t remember from who and the list is too long for me to care enough to find it) about how Tiff could get her own man now and blah-blah-blah. Serious tirade. This comment is not a “HA!! Told you so!!” one. It’s an “OUCH!! That to hurt…” one. :/
Now, Tiff will get back in shape.
Aha! One of the possibilities I suggested.
And Stefani is exquisite as a cheerleader! Poor Tiffany is so Over The Hill by comparison. And so it goes. Kip goes with Stefani and Tiff’s latest instant crush is crushed.
But Stefani could be a good roommate for Tiff, posing a challenge to meet and beat!
Tiffany has competition!!!!
Why does the MU logo look like a big mouth with yellow lips?
Kip and Stefani escaped from WUMO or Scary Gary. Please send them back and lock the portal.
Egg-white is a such a fun look on her!
I can hear the violins playing in the background already as hope swirls around and around the drain of dreams.
Welp Tiff, maybe it’s time you stop trying for the QB type of dudes.
