I can’t wait to meet the right girl—GUY!!
Pru makes a valid point. ✨
Bernice and Luann – the prefect Couple!
“Dating the wrong girls.” And everyone else thought Gunther or Bernice were “in the closet.”
Is this going to be a week of LGBTQ2IA jokes?
Patience grasshopper, you are still very young!
Ummm…Not sure what to make of Pru’s offhand remark.
Well We haven’t met Jan yet, but already I LIKE her. Navy Jet Pilot, eh? Jan probably flies F-18 Super Hornets. Maybe even the new F-35Cs. We see a lot of F-18s around in My neck of the woods, with the Oceana Naval Air Station in Virginia Beach.
Looks like Pru’s marrying a hero. Good for her.
Boys, Pru. Luann dates (or tries to date) boys.
That’s pretty funny Pru!
Ah-ha … Pru does think Luann should be a lesbian …
I don’t want to have to say goodbye to Pru! Not yet!
Funny punch line from Pru. But now I’m starting to wonder if Jan – who makes decisions fast – might make another decision fast and it doesn’t work out for Pru. The return of Pru could be a lot of drama with any number of possible outcomes. Funny if Jan asked Pru, “Who gave you that $300 necklace?”
A good man is hard to find,
You always get, ya know, the other kind.
Just when you’re thinking that he’s your pal,
You look for him and find him foolin’ ’round some other gal,
And then you rave, you even crave,
You wanna see him layin in his grave,
So if your man is nice, girls, take my advice,
And hug him in the mornin’, kiss him every night,
Give him plenty lovin’ and, ooh, treat him right,
Because a good man, nowadays, is hard to find.
So, Top Gun has her own target….Pru. Sounds okay, just so Greg doesn’t have Jan piloting a jet ski around exotic ports looking for AWOL sailors.
Female Navy jet pilot. Is Evans really going for this stereotype?
How about Lu and Pru? I’d support it, but I doubt Greg will go that way, considering how he handled Aaron Hill. More likely, Gunther will break up with Bets, and we’ll get teased that Luann might finally give Gunther a shot… and then Tiffany will move in on him.
Interesting Couple: a theatrical gal and a military jet jockey. This episode will probably end on Friday/Saturday.
Will QUILL BE AT THE WEDDING?
She has a point.
If Pru is going back to New York City, it’s 3 or 4 hours away from Saratoga Springs if that’s where Jan is.
“Maybe you’re dating the wrong girls”.
Maybe you’re dating….not.
(Is Greg steering Luann somewhere?)
Robot, arms flailing wildly, “Danger! Danger! Will Robinson!!!”
♫ Fly me to the moon… ♪
Maybe it’s because Luann can’t make up her mind what she wants from the boys she wants to date. Maybe if she’d stop sending boys a flurry of mixed signals that she doesn’t want them decode, she might actually have a relationship that will last.
I must be the only one here who thinks Pru’s joke is just that….a joke.
Wahhh! Why doesn’t this happen to me? Wahhh?
Or maybe Luann’s dating the wrong gender entirely. I’ve seen bigger surprises.
Cringe Panda on YouTube… she’s woke
Good Luck Pru ! & Welcome back to the Big Apple!
Could be an impru-ment, Luann!
So we finally find out why Pru has been hanging out in Pittsville now that she’s leaving? And she actually has an interesting, sensible back story??
Luann and Viper?
I think panel three is the first drawing I’ve see of Pru where she actually looks pretty.
sounds liek a bad choice, we dated, we stopped dating and now she’s in a hormonal rush so i’m running off. Well it’s typical bad luann-universe planningmaybe she can join rosa
Get out of here (not so) Pru.
This story arc needs to end here.
Good luck to Pru. Hope her marriage does better than most.
huh, so thats been my problem. I should have been dating girls all this time. Stupid me, I’ve been dating women.
Clearly a joke, but wakes one up for sure. If I really knew theater arts I could define the convention that Greg is using, but I think that this arc might end up being at least a two-fer. Not only will Pru give Luann some wisdom that might, and I say might end up helping her make better romantic decisions, and we will ironically find out more about Pru as well. Love to see what Jan looks like. No Delta surprise, poo.
Wrong girls? News flash, baby cakes! Luann does not roll like that.
As usual, the Bets arc is left hanging, no conclusion. Gee thanks Greg! NOT !!!
Too right: Bernice’s organizational skills VS Luann’s channeling of Bettie Boop.
Touche, Pru. I love her sense of humor♡. Luann will miss her very much. Prudence’s fiancée sounds awesome and I hope more and more that Luann will go to New York to attend the ceremony, so Pru could introduce her.
That was actually a great punchline!!
If anything, Pru is just issuing a challenge right back to Luann! That’s all! …
If you’re not happy, then Find A Way!!
Not surprised Pru’s fiancee is a Navy fighter pilot…this strip alternates between being a step ahead of and a step behind the times. Same with “you’re dating the wrong girls” gag.
Remember how Greg Evans tap-danced around whether or not Toni and Brad were actually having sex before they got married, to titillate his liberated audience and avoid offending his prudish audience.
Thus, the door opens for Luann to possibly enter an experimental phase.
I know a funny Limerick… but I can’t write it here! But it is humorous! In fact, I’m laughing right now! :-D
Today, class, Luann contemplates how her life could be amazingly romantic, if only she were lesbian.
I’ll repeat the advice I gave my Nephew on getting married, “Marry your best friend.” If she’s not your best friend, that’s lust and there are much cheaper alternatives than marriage.
I simply cannot believe how obtuse people are that ecannot see that Pru was joking.
I used to work in a company that had to openly gay men working there. One was Jeff and one was Tony. Jeff and I were good friends, he was the executive director’s secretary, Tony was head of IT.Well I ate lunch with Jeff almost every day and he was funny as hell, had us in stitches all the time. He talked and acted a lot like Paul Lynde. Anyway, one day we were all sitting together (our usual set of people) and he mentioned Tony, who was just unpleasant or cold most of the time, and very effeminate. So Jeff casually remarks, “I can’t stand Tony.” I say, “Really? Why is that?” “Because he is such a ( spoiler alert old-style slur ) f*g!”So we all just sit there and with perfect timing, as everyone was contemplating what to say next, in a perfect adaptation of the aforementioned Paul Lynde, Jeff bursts out, “OH I KNOW!” and laughs with that twinkle in his eye and then does a dead on impersonation of Tony. Now I know that nowadays he could have been written up or dismissed regardless of his own orientation, but the humor of his reaction was because of the elephant in the room, and our reluctance/awareness of this. But we all stated laughing. BTW, Tony of course was not there. I chalk it up to different times, but also the same idea as Mel Brooks and Richard Pryor collaborating On Blazing Saddles with all the ‘N" word jokes written by Pryor which gave us permission to laugh, because we knew a black man wrote them. Jeff did not have the subsequent scene where Cleavon’s character is upset about all that and Gene is talking to him about their racism being backwards etc. However in Jeff’s defense he already defied the then typical stereotype since he was in a 20 year monogamous relationship. And to be clear, Tony was a tool.It was the irony that made the statement funny and his acknowledgement of his own words.
Come on this is or should be a comic strip. Getting to the point not worth reading this. Lets get a funny laughing story line not a lot of drama goofy crap.
Hows about skipping the acronyms and just say human?
Ouch! That was a bit snarky!
For a character that has been supportive of Luann’s romantic foibles, even acted like a big sister at times. She always comported herself in a mature manner. In the 31MAR2017 strip she helped Les save face when she realized he was trying to romance her and needed the expensive gift he gave her back. As late as 25FEB2019 she coaxed a girl talk session with Luann about her bedroom escapade with Gunther in the gulag. She noted and supported Luann’s heterosexuality as far as we knew.
That last comment just seemed out of character. I’m disappointed with today’s strip. Maybe tomorrow will save the exit of a character we’re come to like over the last two years.
That is the way it would come out with Pru even though she knows Luann prefers guys. She is excited about her immediate future right now.
Luann needs a new bestie though. Bernice is too negative.
And now the Gunther has mental problems comments are coming out again. I think Gunther is his own man. He keeps his own counsel. He has his own hobbies, skills and interests and others have come to accept those attributes and have benefitted from them. Often Luann, but also Tiffany, Knute and even Les.
Gunther is a Renaissance Man of this age. A person who is well educated and sophisticated and who has skills, talent and knowledge in many different fields of study. He’s no more autistic than da Vinci!
It sounds like Pru and Jan never broke up, just stayed in touch long distance. It seems like this is the first time Pru has ever talked about Jan to Luann. Very odd since they live in the same house.
Pru is just taking the comment literally. It’s a joke. Luann moans “… oh why doesn’t this happen to me?….” Well if you want THIS to happen YOU, you have to date a gal, and the right one. Ha ha..
Pru’s punch line was just teasing Luann, as they are good friends. Not likely that Luann will try it with a woman – but if she did – I would guess Tara. The relationship between Luann and Tara has had positive and negative spikes – both signs of connection. And Tara seems to have few taboos – I suspect she’s at least checked it out with some girl or woman.
I’ve been feeling iffy with Pru since she arrived. I was hoping she might be used someway to “fight” Ann Eiffel but she’s been a dud. tbh, I’m glad she’s going
…Plus, you’re a moron, Luann.
maybe you’re a fickle… can’t finish that statement
GO NAVY AVIATION!
Not to be picky (okay, I guess it is picky) but I would think that Luann would have heard about Jan a long time ago. Certainly she would have asked about her when Pru received the valentine. I suppose this was all exposition for the readers to explain why Pru was here at all and why she’s moving back all of a sudden now…
I kinda want the strip to pull a Beetle Bailey and abandon Pittsville altogether, to focus on Pru’s life as a Navy wife. (for those who are confused at the reference, that strip wasn’t always about life in the Army: Beetle was originally a college student.) Luann could tag along to justify the title (I’m sure we can find something for her to do), but the rest of the cast can be left behind. After all, Brad’s storyarc is basically complete, and watching the rest of the characters constantly backslide into their default characterizations has become wearying.) Let’s shake things up!
Get back to wholesome comics
Welp, time for Pru to get on that bus out of this strip. She joins Aaron, Rosa, the teachers from Pitts High, Knute, Crystal, Dirk, Delta, Zane, Elwood, Ben (Bernice’s brother), that scarf guy that Bernice liked, Quill…
I know a few Navy pilots; Pru’s assessment of her fiance is about right. But, Pru as a Navy wife would be an interesting occasional sidebar to this strip.
This strip never needed a lesbian.
Look like Luann going to be written in comic strip as a lazbian.By by Luann strip
Haha. Nice one, Pru..
THANK YOU for including us, finally! Thank you! My wife thanks you, too. It’s nice to not be invisible.
Yes! Finally outed for the tri-sexual she is! Luann’s into men, women … and into cartoon characters.
How come when Christians mention their faith and the teachings of Christ, people ask for silence so they won’t be “offended”? Yet, if I am offend by mainstreaming of so called gay marriage, I am cancelled, called ugly names and told to shut up?
Perhaps we are overanalyzing… Pru is not suggesting to Luann that she date girls and Luann is not a lesbian. Gay and straight people that are friends are able to joke about each others’ sexual preferences. If they are friends and mean no harm, and the comments are not ugly, then the two can joke about such things.
Dating the wrong Girls. She nailed it.
I have always liked Pru and I hate to see her go. I think the G&K team didn’t really know what do with the character in the end, tbh. I wish Jan would have relocated to the area to keep her around as a big sis to Lu, as Pru and Lu just fit and Pru always seemed to help LuAnn. Hopefully though this will be a good arc for LuAnn. Maybe she will meet someone who will sweep her off of her feet (though I still like Jack for LuAnn). Maybe LuAnn will take a big risk and move out of the Pitts.
Ah, Prudence! We will miss your ready, sharp wit!
I’ll say it again: too bad her partner could not come out to Pitts!
So was Pru hiding out in Pittsville because there were too many temptations in the Big Apple?
When a strip with Lu and Pru can garner almost 500 comments for two days in a row, that tells me that a lot of us are sheltering in place. Under normal conditions, this would have been closer to 150 or so …
Jan’s next “tour of duty” as a Navy pilot aka deployment will be coming up soon, so “forever” is euphemistic unless Jan leaves the Navy/retires or they use Skype.
