Here it is:
Survey part one: Those who want the Ann Eiffel saga to END. Name is sufficient, no need to explain. If you need to explain, please start another thread, and leave room for as many people who may care to be counted here.
Survey part two: Those who want the Ann Eiffel sage to continue. Again, name is sufficient, no need to explain. If you need to explain, please start another thread, and leave room for as many people who may care to be counted here.
Rationale: I have been reading the comments for days now and note that there are several, perhaps even many, not just fans, but longtime fans, who are getting pretty tired of Ann Eiffel.
I have even read the comments of long time readers threatening to stop reading the strip because of Ann Eiffel. More than one commentator has said this comic strip has become DEPRESSING.
It was said that G&K wanted to “spare” us of the misery that COVID-19 has become. But the constant presentation of Ann Eiffel constantly winning, and Tiffany constantly, brutally abused, over and over and over: IS THIS REALLY LESS DEPRESSING THAN COVID-19?
Unfortunately, Ann Eiffel usually draws as many as 500 comments a day: If the creators are gauging success by number of comments, then we might as well count on Ann Eiffel becoming a permanent fixture around here. (What the heck? Thursday, we topped 600 comments!)
Now, we “get it,” there has to be a villain. Tiffany used to be the villain. Tiffany appears to be getting a “makeover,” so to speak, and most of us no longer see her as THE villain of the strip.
The current villain of the strip, Ann Eiffel, is frustrating a lot of people because she has become like Shannon: Just as you never see Toni without Shannon, so too do we never see Tiffany any more without Ann over her shoulder. The difference is, Shannon isn’t intentionally malicious. But, as portrayed, Ann Eiffel is over-the-top malicious, spiteful, and downright despicable. In addition, as portrayed, as a rule, she NEVER suffers the consequences of her evil doings.
There appears to be no nuance whatsoever to Ann’s character: She’s all evil, all the time. Furthermore, she enjoys torturing people, especially Tiffany, and always seems to have the upper hand, a card up her sleeve, or something. But whatever it is, she always comes out on top.
At any rate, this is why I’m offering the chance to sound off, with no guarantees that G&K will bother to read this. But maybe someb
Maybe they’ll both get lucky and Tom will be the kind of guy who’s into giving foot rubs.
I’m sure Ann. Because you never lie. ALL THE SARCASM
All those orders Ann’s giving Tiffany reminds me of all the orders Ann gave Bernice when the latter was employed at the former’s bookstore… including bring her a latte.
Poor Tiff. This is getting really painful to watch. Almost makes me wish I could see a strip of Luann and Bernice hanging out in that pigsty Lu calls a room. Almost…
There once was a time when a lot of the artists did read comments on the various sites. (It was especially fun for those who read ‘The Dark Side of the Horse’, because the artist would answer comments.) This isn’t seen much anymore. Essentially, a large number of comments is used to gauge how many eyes have seen the ads on a site (unless readers use ad blocking software, like I do). That’s how the ‘success’ of a ‘toon is measured. Not the content of the posts, just how many there are. So, a survey comment that collects names and inspires other comments will only be measured by how many eyes saw ads. For those who do use ’FaceBook’ (not I), that may still be a way of communicating with the Evanses…
I think Tiffany does have a plan which might explain why she is putting up with Ann’s drama and abuse. She is waiting for the right moment or to implement the plan. She knows her dad is happy with Ann but she does not like the very idea of Ann tricking her dad so she might have a plan to twist Ann’s arm and cooperate. Blackmail her. Tell her she knows her ultrasound is a fake. She has a copy and will show it to her dad if Ann ever does things she has been doing to her ever again. Or invite Les to dinner at McMansion. Something to stop her abuse.
There are those who think Tiffany has been defeated — including Ann. That is not the look I see. I have no idea what she will do, but I don’t see her giving up.
Tiffany- I want a foot rub! It is act of intimacy?
Massage your own smelly feet, witch.
I have to admit. This is an extremely depressing way to end four weeks of strips.
Oh FFS, are we just gonna watch Tiffany be a doormat for the rest of her days?! Wasn’t the whole idea to break free from this and let her dad do his thing? I don’t see why letting her dad enjoy a relationship requires her to bow to Ann’s every whim.
Totally agree with Cheapskate0 — This strip is no longer a “comic,” it’s a tragedy. The only time it ‘feels’ like “LuAnn” is on Sunday. I’m ready to bail on it because bullying, lying, dishonesty and cruelty are WRONG even in a comic strip. I come to Go Comics to get a break from life, not to be reminded of how awful people can be
I think Ann has crossed that line with Tiff.
Bring her a glass of lemonade. Lots of ice and crushed Diazepam.
I think Tiffany can hardly wait to do the foot rub. Seems like it’s her kind of thing.
Who eles thinks that Ann’s not really pregnant? That Ultrasound is a fake and this is just another one of her schemes to catch a millionaire?
I forget how late GoComics released the strips compared ArcaMax. To misquote Yoda, “Go or Don’t Go, there is no maybe.” Wed. Tiffany said she was “gotta here,” Thurs she had her bags packed but today, Fri she (and her bags) have followed Ann into Ann’s bedroom. Why hasn’t she left already. The logical answer is that if Tiffany left Ann wouldn’t have been able to demand a foot rub / grind Tiff down more. Since we all know how terrible Ann is this piling on cab only be sadistic and it needs to stop.MAKE LUANN INTERESTING AGAIN!
What was the name of this website again?
That’s right: “GoComics.”
That said I see nothing “comic” about this story arc, nor do I see it “Going” anywhere. Instead we get further iterations of the same, boring, non-comic, repetitious formula. Ann treats Tiff like trash and Tiff grits her face and bears it.
What I am wondering is why Tiff, while suffering all this abuse and angst seems to have not lost any of her appetite? That said, just who is feeding her?
I would expect any young woman who is essentially penniless, living alone, and under this type of stress to lose weight. At this point in her life, that could be a blessing for Tiff. A slim Tiff, with her twenty year old’s complexion, would infuriate Ann.
What you need Anne, is a good boot in the butt out of the estate. ;D
Just wait everyone.
End of arc. No resolution. No surprise. Next week, Gunther decides to teach sewing as a part time gig.
I’m not understanding why Tiffany is putting up with this. Is there a reason why she HAS to live with her dad that I missed? Is it because she has nowhere else to go for the summer? I know she doesn’t make much money but people rent rooms. What’s up with this?
Yes master, I hear and obey. My batteries are running down, please replace them soon.
Exhausted? from what? Tiffany has been doing all the work, you just stood around barking orders. I’m shocked tiffany is putting up with it.
Frankly, I think Greg and Karen have something else in mind. Not sure if Ann is really PG, (but I think so), or how this will pay out for Tiffany. It seems like this is a growing opportunity for her… the comment she made to Les about growing up indicates such… I’m still wondering about her moving in with the Degroots! For me it’s nice to be on Tiffany’s side for once!
Next Monday: Hopefully no malicious or destructive acts by Tiffany. I would rather see Tiffany quietly ditch this joint and learn to take care of herself. Plenty of good potential arcs when Tiffany gets a handle.
I thouģht today’s strip was supposed to be Tiffs coup de gras, a denouement, or some other French bon mot. Merdre!
People who love nothing more than to complain sure can get tiresome.
I have to say that considering how fancy this house, that bedcover is shockingly unfancy.
I still don’t believe she’s pregnant
I can’t believe I called the foot massage yesterday, and it’s here today!
Strip getting a little predicable?
Time for Les to tell Uncle Al that Ann is going to have a baby and Uncle Al show up and tell Tom(cat), that Ann is up to one of her old ploys to scam him.
hopefully ann gets caught using a fake photo and tiffany’s dad sees how horrible ann treats his little girl
You heard her. 2 ice, lots of aspirin
when is Tiffany going to say “Enough!” in this story arc. She pays for her own college education, she doesn’t live at home, and she has no illusions about Ann. If it’s because of her dad, let that go—it’s a hard lesson but essential. If you’re not getting nurtured, find a family will will nurture you.
Bring back Brad & Toni. And let Luann grow up the way Brad did—she’s just as aimless now as when she was in high school.
Ann Eiffel is really over the top today. It reminded me of my sister towards the end of her life (she had a liver related disease). I had taken her to a salad bar restaurant when she was asking me to get everything for her including dishes from several locations. I turned to her and said “You’re milking this for everything you can aren’t you!”
This used to be funny right? Degrading is not funny.
This cartoon is becoming a total downer most of the time. Getting sick of it
Really don’t see why she keeps going along with this…
Evil Annie is milking this B.S. so much, she is going to start lactating.
The reason she has a headache is because she is trying to think her way out of this fake pregnancy.
TOO MUCH, I have been reading this comic strip since 1999, and it is really BORING how Ann is winning all the time. Something must change. It is just too much.
Considering the way G&K are laying “Ann as a B*tch” on so thick, I’m now almost totally convinced that Ann’s pregnancy is a fake, that she’s about to found out, and sent packing once again. And that her downfall won’t be at all satisfying, but the vast majority of fans will be so glad that she’s GONE, that NO ONE will care.
So. How will Ann be dispatched?
1) Many “folks” say the sonogram is one of Les. Les will know, and tell Tiffany. – I’ll call Bullsh*t on that one. Why? Because Ann “dislikes” Les. So why the H3LL would she keep a sonogram of him, much less SHOW it to him? WHEN would Ann show it to Les if he’s been put in foster homes. BUT, if Ann has pulled the fake pregnancy scam on other suckers, Al might know.
2) Other victims of Ann’s lingerie scam realizing they’ve been had, stepping up and calling the cops. Sure, it’s been three years OUR time, but only a few months THEIR time.
3) Tiffany contacting Simone about the lingerie scam and Simone pressing charges on Ann. Better late than never. (See #2 for the time line)
4) Lack of doctor visits on Ann’s part raising suspicions, and Ann being quickly found out.
5) Tom overhearing Ann being hateful to Tiffany, and FINALLY taking action.
6) Some other sucker Ann hosed in an earlier fake pregnancy scam, tracking her down and confronting her, in front of Tom.
I’m hoping it’s either 2 or 3. For Me nothing short of Ann going to jail this time will suffice. 4) Might work, provided a good detective is put on the case.
At any rate, I say RE-LAX. The end of Ann is at hand. Maybe not next week but soon. At least for the next 5 to 10 years. And I’m SURE Ann’s cell mate will be all too happy “rub her feet.”
Call Simone , CEO of Souffle Lingerie for a job
I hope that Tiffany has been recording how Ann treats her, to show for Tom, along with preparing Ann’s son and Luann’s mother for extra evidence. I also hope that she has noted that Ann seems very thin for supposedly being pregnant.
Unfortunately, this is Saturday. We are going to have to wait a few weeks to find out what happens. G & K are going to switch over to a new story arc for a couple of weeks.
Tiffany can just say No to any of Ann’s requests. These are all things Tom should be doing for Ann. No one can take advantage of Tiffany unless she lets them.
How about you poison that lemonade?
Isn’t Tiffany on the way out?
I think it is time to disappear.
So where’s Luann?
Eiffel is milking the alleged pregnancy for every ounce of revenge on Tiff. You know she probably is still seething how Les and Tiff busted her on that lingerie scam and threatening her gravy train life style with Tiff’s father………. Like others who post I would love to see a house crash on Evil Ann but somehow I doubt that will happen and we are stuck with our protagonist as she does cause chatter….
All coming here is giving me is a headache! So long for awhile maybe I will return—————-OR NOT
Sorry, but I love this story line and I just can’t wait to read it every day. She will get her comeuppance eventually and I want to be right here watching when she does! LoL
i just click on another comic
A job at Weenie World looks pretty good right now.
Tiffany has attempted to leave the scene most of the week, but her half-frame exits have returned to completely back in the frame. Tiffany is becoming an indentured servant.
Any bets on Ann disappearing after the baby is born?
WHY is Tiffany there? Good Grief – say goodbye to your Dad and get the h## out of there.
Tiffany leave, go. Ann’s not pregnant. Don’t get involved because you will loose
I think Tiffany went to sleep and had a bad dream, just like a tv show I watched years ago. The entire season really didn’t happen.
Getting in practice making Tiffany your personal maid/come baby nurse early, Ann? You’re not even beginning to show!
Okay Mr. Evans, we get it. Ann is bad. Can we move on from this story arc?
I think what this arc needs is for the ghost of Alfred Hitchcock to take over writing duties from Greg for a couple of weeks…
My first instinct is to think that she’s not pregnant and it will all come crashing down on her. But I’ve been waiting for things to come crashing down on her for so long I’m giving up hope.
G&K never read a damn thing…except their own comic. They do not care one iota what readers think.
I for one, am getting seriously sick of this story line. I get mad every day, and I DO NOT NEED THAT.
I don’t mind a villain or two, but after reading the strip for so so long it’s hard to see Tiffany change so much. We already had to watch her lose her self-confidence and change physically. And now she just rolls over completely. It’s like she got a lobotomy. I could enjoy the storyline if she at least had some of that old spunk or a little pushback in her. Every day she looks angry at the end of the strip, and the next day she just carries on with Ann’s demands or whatever else crap life throws her. That is not the Tiffany we know in law. That’s what frustrates me.
Why is Tiffany still there? Glutton for punishment or letting Ann dig herself deeper?
Completely expecting the pregnancy to be yet another scam from Ann.
Ann sucks, but I think I am personally more annoyed by Tom’s complete inaction or inability to care in his daughter’s need. Only thing he has done is to get them in one location to talk out, then just left them there.
Did Tom get lost in the house, or something? Is he running naked through the lawn sprinkler? I don’t see how he can be a successful lawyer. Maybe he was faceless for so long because they hadn’t decided what he’s like. Apparently they’ve decided on “brain damaged” or “half-baked.” He’s probably in the kitchen trying to change the channels on the microwave.
With the arrival of Karen in this strip, the wit is gone, the soap is laid on thickly. The plot arcs used to be short and witty, now they are long and drawn out – tedious in fact. And now, who is the main character in The Strip? It certainly is not Luann. Luann is not even a supporting character now.
Remember the show “Benson?”“You look like you could use a drink.” “I sure could!”“Good. Get me one too…”
The ball is in Tiffany’s court. She loves/needs her Dad and it looks as if she will accept Ann as part of the deal. She is growing up very fast and is poised the be the ‘adult’ in the room very soon. Go Girl!
One word to describe the Ann arc: BORING. Every story needs a conflict to have the characters ‘grow’ but enough already with the Ann Eiffel show. Whatever happened to Delta? Bring her back into the story line. I agree with Prescott-Philosopher that Luann is no longer the protagonist of the strip.
I’m sure this was brought up already, but I’m very certain Lady Ann is about as pregnant as a lamp shade. I bet anything that sonogram image was from when she had Les.
I quite agree. Stop this story line or I move on to greener pastures…Like Mary Worth or Prince Valiant.
where’s her new HUSBAND, to help with all her “NEEDS??!!”
I wonder how many fans, who said they’d leave, are peeking, one eye closed and a hand over the other? This is becoming so ridiculous now, that it would be funny if not so sad. Ann has just given Tiffany so many opportunities to sabotage her. I’m sure they will be enumerated. And, of course, afore faceless Dad is still MIA. Waiting for ……something….. :-/
I feel like I may need to stop reading for a few days cause I can’t take any more of Ann. Maybe depending on where the story is at when I check back in I’ll go back and read a few of the ones I skipped but that’s not likely unless the ones missed are not Ann related.
If she doesn’t break her foot during a massage I might stop reading this comic. I’m also sure she isn’t pregnant. Tiff needs to have Ann say she’s faking it all where Dad can hear her. End of story.
And this is only the beginning… The next few months could be a real pain for Tiffany. But I hope Les will come for the sake of his little sibling, even if he hates Ann, and Tiffany will do everything possible to stay away from her.
Panel one…Tiff has her suitcase packed…“getcher own damn lemonade…”
Tiffany is doing the right thing. She has proven to be an idiot and a door mat. Why not be those things in the mansion? Maybe Ann can teach her how to be a successful, assertive woman who gets what she wants.
Really getting bored with predictable Ann.
I have to believe that the feisty Bets has successfully captured Gunther’s virginity. Tiffany has had the stuffing kicked out of her consistently for years, now. Bernice still needs a major makeover, and Luann still just dreams about cute boys. With the exception of Gunther, these young folks “score” about as much as they do in soccer.
If the strip needed a pregnancy, I was hoping that it would be Toni"s. That would be fun and funny, not abusive like we’ll see with Ann. Ugh.
why is Tiff still there?
all this needs is one comment from tiff: “no.”
Pregnant women are taught to NOT ask for aspirin. There are a few specific situations in which low dose ones are given, but typically this is a no-no, and the family would know that she has a real problem if that had been advised. If Ann is faking the pregnancy as others have suggested then is she planning to fake a miscarriage and blame Tiffany for it due to giving her aspirin? If so, I hope that Tom has the sense to mention that an incomplete miscarriage can lead to infection so they both need to go together to an appointment with a gynecologist. Then he would learn that she had not been pregnant.
Tiffany’s house sitting is OVER. Why hasn’t she gotten the heck OUT OF THERE?
Well, as I indicated earlier in the week, enough is enough. I’ve had enough of Ann’s abuse of Tiffany, and I’ve had far too much of Tom being fine with his mistress making his daughter her own personal b**ch. Tomorrow’s strip in my Sunday newspaper will be my last, after following this strip since 1995.
Contrary to popular belief, Evans is addressing the current situation. Ann represents Trump.
She has been pulling her suitcase the last 3 strips, leave already!
GREG’S got this just wait. Pregnant women shouldn’t aspirin. There are clues given out all the time. Enjoying the ride.
I am so tired of Ann Eiffel….either give her a lesson/comeuppance or make her go away. I really don’t care which
People are suggesting that Tiffany should move in with the Degroots. I can’t see it. Luann and Tiff have never gotten along. Both of them are instigators of trouble, although through the school of hard knocks, Tiff is becoming more mature and worldly than Luann.
This continues to play out as a Cinderella story. If so, she will need a Rescuer. Who will be her Prince Charming?What are the odds?!>!
Daddy Tom 3 to 2
Leslie Knox Even money
Gunther Berger 7 – 1
Nancy DeGroot 4 – 1
Any other DeGroot (including Luann) 20 – 1
Any college mate 10 – 1
A surprise new character 100 – 1
Any other character 50 – 1
You pick ’em 7 – 5
She shouldn’t be taking asprin if she’s pregnant.
Did I miss something….since when did Tiffany move back to her dad’s house…and esp. since Anne was tossed out of the Fuse…I’m def. missing something
And the Academy Award for worst acting performance goes to……Like • Reply
Same post as yesterday. Time for Tiffany to just say “NO!”.
Hmm. I remember all those strips where we wished Tiff would get what’s coming to her, and now that she is – we hate it. Revenge is NOT best when served cold.
Wow! If you get this tramatized by fictional characters, perhaps you should seek professional mental help. If you need a comics strip to make you feel good, then perhaps you should start one of your own. Good mental health to you.
Nothing doing, Ann! If you want those things, then get it yourself. As for Tiffany, it’s time to punch Ann in the face.
My complaint would be that the last 3 days have been making the same point so that’s 2 useless days in terms of drama and storytelling. Read the strip on 25th. It’s conveys the point fine enough. Ann is (or pretends to be) pregnant and she’s going to use it as an excuse to abuse Tiff. Yesterday and today just say exactly the same thing. The only effect is to made readers more upset against Ann and seeing Tiff being treated as a doormat. Let’s hope the story picks up on monday.
Don’t normally read the notes, but as someone who is on the verge of deleting Luann from my comics feed, thought I’d scroll down today. I see I’m not alone.
Some time has passed since Tiffany moved into the mansion. A couple of important plot options have been missing from the current arc. Does Tiffany still have her job at The Fuse? Does Tiffany know about the extra room at the DeGroots? She might know – because the staff all knew that Pru left. G & K: Please stay with the current arc long enough for us to see Tiffany get the hell outa Dodge.
Tiffany is under no obligation to cater to Ann during her ‘pregnancy’. That’s Tom’s job now.
This pregnancy is a fake out! I’m certain of it now. Ann is playing it too over the top.
I am THIS close to never reading this comic again!!!
“Yeah… You know what? I’ll let Dad know you need all that. After all, it’s his fault for getting you pregnant, so it should be his job to pamper you and listen to your constant whining. Not mine! I have a job, and a future ahead of me… And you have no place in it. Come to think of it…, neither does Dad. If he wants to waste his time and money on the likes of you, then fine. He’s yours, now… and you can keep him. Bye!”
Time to drop the “Lu” from the title of this strip.
Tiffany… Do you really want to have to live like this? Just drop everything… and GET OUT!!!
I think Ann is the best part of this strip and I been reading it for 20 plus years.
Aw, she’s hurting. Rock her to sleep. (You do have a big rock, don’t you?)
Here’s what I don’t get: Tiffany was only supposed to be house setting while the couple went to the cabin and now it looks like she’s moving in? How did that happen? Also, could someone tell be what the reference is to “G&K”?
Daaad your fiancée needs you!
What we have to look forward to:
This should only take about 2 years time.
If Ann takes her clothes off next, that won’t be the only thing hard around there.
Anne’s character is one of the few that isn’t totally insipid
This is not the same bed shown in Ann’s bedroom on June 10th. Ann must have another bedroom for her nap.
How soon before Tom remembers he has a vasectomy?
While Ann naps, time for Tiffany and her Dad to have some one on one time.
I’m growing weary waiting for a payoff to this storyline. Can we give Tiffany (and her father) their spines back soon, please?
After this last 6 day comic strip….I need a foot rub!!!!!
It’s like living a horror picture in slow motion.
Apparently, Tiff enjoys being a punching bag. All she has to do is get in her car and leave.
1. I agree although I think this may be her swan song. It’s been a few years since I’ve had a baby but shouldn’t she be careful taking aspirin? Maybe her pregnancy is a fake that she would using to hook the old geezer. I think Tiffany will stumble in the plot and rid herself of Ann. Just his pregnant is she? Ultra sound pictures but no physical indications. Anyway let’s hope Ann is gone for good. Personally I didn’t care fur Toni Daytona bug her she is.
Count me in
Oh I know.. lets have Tiffany’s mother show up and be WORSE than Ann! That would be priceless and so incredibly annoying!
I know this is just a comic but I hate that Ann Eiffel. I want her downfall to be SPECTACULAR and long lasting.
You’re comparing the comic strip to COVID-19??? Will this strip kill us? Not literally. That’s almost like our Gov. ( Az.) comparing the virus to a baseball game. " Nine innings… " and so on. Ridiculous. Anyway, like I said, “Tiff, don’t do it. Go get your dad.”
I’m not sure I can handle Annother week of this, unless G+K plan to put Ann end to it!
Ann and Tom went away for a brief trip, and not once did she mention that she was pregnant or needing extra care because she felt fragile?
This is a scheme.
Tom probably had a vasectomy after Tiffany and went to call his attorney.
I am 100% certain that she’s faking the pregnancy now. She’s describing symptoms that pregnant women don’t feel until they are well along despite the fact that she doesn’t even have a bump yet. If this story line doesn’t resolve with the revelation that she’s faking this then I’m going to just think that Greg Evans doesn’t know how it works…
If Ann is really pregnant, she shouldn’t be taking aspirin…
i think we were all hoping for a more swift conclusion to Tiff’s dealings with Ann but that has never been G&K’s way. Luann and Quill grated on each other’s nerves for a long time before Luann reached her own breaking point and decided that they were incompatible (as a couple). Here i think we can safely assume that Tiff has her limits (regardless of her desire for Tom to be happy); Ann is someone who just uses people. Tiff will (hopefully) figure a way to not co-exist with her under the same roof. In that sense we are at some inflection point.
On May 13, I went out on a limb with a four-part prediction
(1) Events will eventually unfold in a way that puts Tom wise to Ann’s true nature.
(2) It will happen in time to keep Ann from getting Tom to the altar.
(3) It won’t happen until after Tiff achieves more growth. And, no, I don’t mean physically.
(4) After Ann’s departure, Tom and Tiff’s father-daughter relationship will be stronger than before her arrival. (Even an ill wind can indirectly blow some good.)
and I added
Re (3): I’m not specifically predicting that Tiffany’s maturation will enable her give Ann a comeuppance. It’s just that the desire to be out from under Ann’s thumb is a source of motivation for Tiff and I don’t think the writers are ready to remove that motivation quite yet. …
Prospects may look dicier for part 2, with Ann’s apparent pregnancy giving impetus for a short engagement, but for now I’m sticking with all four parts.
In light of part 3 of my prediction, I, for one, am not at all impatient to see Ann get the boot before I’ve seen whatever path of maturation (possibly mixed with occasional backsliding) is in store for Tiffany.
If any or all of my predictions turn out to be wrong, it wouldn’t be the first time. In any case, I look forward to reading and enjoying whatever story Greg and Karen want to tell.
Maybe Tiffany will wind up living with Luann after all.
I love this storyline, I used to watch a lot of Daytime Drama which is a lot worst than this. There is always a “bad guy” who wins once and awhile but the good still overcomes in the end. We just have to remember that and trust in fate.
All I know is that Ann is starting to milk this whole pregnancy thing for as far as she can. Poor Tiffany, it’s only going to get worse for her if she continues to hang around
Sorry I lost track of the plot arc, but could somebody please explain why Tiffany has to stay there? Why she can’t just leave and go live somewhere else?
I love this arc! Many things could happen next and I can’t wait to see which way the story goes. Will Tiff expose Ann as a liar (and can you take aspirin while pregnant?) Will Tiff walk out and leave her dad to be happy with his cruel, conniving fiancée? Will Tiff’s dad catch Ann treating Tiff like Cinderella, and defend his only child? Will Ann leave Tiff’s dad when she’s spent all his remaining money, revealing she was never pregnant? Or when she finds out the huge rock on her hand is really a CZ? Will Tiff get a fairy godmother/father to help, maybe in the form of Les, Mr. Grey, or Gunther? Or will Tiff become her own fairy godmother and save herself, becoming totally independent, and understanding her dad is a weak man who will never be what she needs, and find out she’s stronger than she thinks and has good friends who WILL be there for her? Stay tuned, same bat time, same bat channel!
Agreed. Ann Eiffel is a bore. We come here to be slightly entertained away from the other crap in the world, not to follow a drama soap opera.
No amount of spoiled brattiness that Tiffany was (key word, WAS) in her earlier youth can equate to what Ann is doing to her (and Tom?) now. Plus let us not forget Ann’s character is a CRIMINAL fraudster and a liar. We should look at this “pregnancy” with suspicion.
And why not let us laugh together and enjoy a little chuckle for the day, once again at our daily comics? What ever happened to that idea? Is that being demolished too? A little levity is always welcome, what happened?
Ok. I really miss seeing the person who this strip is named for, Luann.
I wouldn’t be surprised if A: Tiffany pushed her down a flight of stairs B: Anne Eiffel somehow “magically” fell down a flight of stairs.
I doubt she’s pregnant. I’m calling it.
Right under what I am typing now is the blue Comment box. Below that is a box that says Who is Ann Eiffel, along with her toon pix. Maybe the artists are planning a spin-off where Ann gets her own stip. The comments have become the highlight of the day, except for the continuing number of golfers and caddies testing positive for the virus. In Texas, the Sahara dust is so bad people with asthma can’t even go outside. It’s a dirty gyp.
Please, stop Ann and stop torturing Tiffany. The verbal abuse is hideous.
A bit “long in tooth” is the way I would describe this arc at the moment. It is not “bad” per se, it is just getting a bit tiring. I am hoping Monday starts a new arc. But, I do hope this arc eventually returns…. but I hope it is not so “heavy-handed” with Ann just always dumping on Tiffany. I would be interested in seeing Ann act with others for a while. I would be glad to have Tiffany act with others for a while.
I would REALLY like to have more college things happen. Perhaps Greg is having a Summer off from college…. but he doesn’t HAVE to do this….. most every college and university does stuff all Summer too. Personally, I would like to see some Summer strips with Bernice, and Piro, and Luann, and Jack, and Nil, and Professor Zebo. Those are the various story arcs that have felt the most fun and joyous to me lately. If Gunther is in the mix, I hope it is with Bets, not Les, and I would REALLY like to see Gunther do some if his arcs in the college setting too.
I mentioned soaps the other day. This story is moving along about as well. The slow pace is the leading reason I don’t miss watching soaps; Tiffany versus Ann is moving just as badly.
I have to say one thing, Tiff if becoming the poster person for passivity and co-dependency.
“But, as portrayed, Ann Eiffel is over-the-top malicious, spiteful, and downright despicable.”
Maybe Ann Eiffel is the author’s subtext for some other person dominating our real life who is over-the-top malicious, spiteful, and downright despicable.
Ann towers over everyone else in Eiffelness!
If Tiffany does any of what Lady Ann asks of her, I will also take a hiatus from this annoying and frustrating arc.
Time to just move out.
Luanne’s dad has plenty of money. let him hire someone to take care of her and then Luann can get on with her life.
Enough is enough…….how much more will Tiffany take before giving Ann a piece of her mind??
The “snapper” for Ann is long overdue. This is far worse than Tiffany deserves already.
I think you’re pushing this a bit hard ann
So this is.. Funny? A lot of children are in this situation, doesn’t matter on wealth so yeah. I mean maybe G&K are setting Ann up for a major downfall but its past time to move on to Luann’s drama in her life
Ditch the witch! Ditch the witch! etc etc
Thank you. Well said!
I am tired of it too. I don’t believe she is even pregnant. I think she had that sonogram ready from someone else in case Tom didn’t ask her to marry him (or if she was tired if waiting). She will soon say she had a miscarriage. She doesn’t even like kids. Look at her relationship with her son. This strip should be called Ann Eiffle the evil.
If Tiffany does not walk out and move in with the Degroots on Monday, Ann will torture Tiffany until the baby is grown!
Sorry. The minute someone tells me to touch their feet is the minute they get told where they can go. Why even wear high heels if all you’re going to do is whine about them? I’ve seen pregnant women wear heels, but most prefer comfort over “fashion.” I have a lot of words to describe Ann, but all of them are vulgar and I’d rather not offend the nice commenters here.
EXCELLENT COMMENT!! There have been other villains, however, they just left the scene before getting their comeuppance. Even Les has been slightly reformed. GREG, you need to let Tiffany come out a winner and send Ann packing never to be seen on the scene again!! COVID 19 is upsetting enough; let’s see a truly horrible person get their due!!!
Never once when I was pregnant did I want a footrub. And all I could take was Tylenol for a headache.
I hope Tiffany will stand up to that horrible Ann Eiffel. What is wrong with her father that he doesn’t see how she treats Tiffany?
Will Les save the day for Tiffany, that is my guess
Do women still die during childbirth? Just askin’.
If she’s having such a rough time, maybe they should postpone the wedding.
The interesting thing is how many posters keep speculating on who will ‘rescue’ Tiffany. Why can’t she rescue herself? She has a possible job with the woman who owns Souffle lingerie in Paris, she already has a job at The Fuse. She needs to stop putting up with abuse just because she wants her father to be happy, and get on with her life. She doesn’t need Les or Gunther or TJ or Al Gray to rescue her…
Burn the witch!
Where’s a Witch-Hunter General when you need one?
Oh, hey, by all means rub her feet. There’s a reason that massage therapists — trained, certified and licensed — are reluctant to rub the feet of a pregnant woman. Look it up.
Okay – I’ll let Tom know you need those things on my way out. I am not your nursemaid or your daughter.
PHOOEY! PLEASE, PLEASE BE SOMEWHERE ELSE MONDAY! =8- 0
I’m not as tired of the Ann character as I am of the boring, uninteresting direction the cartoonist is forcing upon us. End this crap and give us some interesting amusement.
I know ann is wearing pitch black capris but the fact that she has on skin-tight pants and a tucked in shirt. That is a lil trashy considering she’s expecting. Most women wearing tight pants wear a shirt to cover the front and back. just sayin
Monday – soulmates?
She’s faking it…I hold she’s not pregnant.
I left a comment here yesterday pointing to a fake pregnancy, given the fact that Evilann would have been warned not to get foot rubs. There’s a reason that trained, certified, licensed massage therapists avoid working on a pregnant woman’s feet. Google it.
This is beyond played out. It’s hardly entertaining to watch a villain get over on everyone for extended stretches with no recourse in sight. I’ll check back in a couple of weeks and see if anything has changed by then.
Playing it for all its worth. Time for Tiff to leave.
Kudos to you for such a well researched and coherent comment. I agree with you and hope the strip finds a different path in the woods.
Methinks this pregnancy is about as real as a pro wrestling pregnancy storyline.
Ann is a fox and a milf!!
forget the foot rub
I have to wonder…. is Ann REALLY pregnant? The LAST thing she would want is another kid. What she wants is MONEY.
1) Ann has a copy of Les’ sonogram and presents it to Tom as HIS baby.
2) Ann insists on getting married ASAP.
3) Not long after the wedding and before a “baby bump” starts to show, Ann mysteriously has a “miscarriage”… brought on by “stress” caused by “Tiffany’s hateful attitude”.
4) Tom cuts Tiffany out of his life forever.
5) Tom suffers an “accident” and dies.
6) As his widow, Ann legally inherits everything..
Aspirin CANNOT be taken by a pregnant woman!
