    The words put into Luann’s mouth today belies all the excitement she showed at the prospect of Bernice moving in with her. The writer is surprisingly tone-deaf

    Bernie – quit warming up the goldfish, they like the water to be cooler. Come to think of it, it looks like Bernie is about to boil over.

    .

    Hopefully, Bernie has a tank on hand with water that is already dechlorinated, a pump, a good filter (goldfish are really dirty fish), and they have to let the fish stay in the bag in the tank water so it can become closer to the tank’s temperature before dumping the goldfish in. Always better to discard the water in the bag from the pet shop tank.

    I’m fairly sure I’ll get an argument here, but Luann doesn’t look at all upset at what’s happening. And in THAT spirit, so far, so good.

    But, Bernice is falling like the proverbial “ton of bricks,” for what is probably just a friendly gesture from a kindhearted lovable everyday Joe.

    Ah. But does Jack have any “feelings” for Bernice or is he just being “nice?” It seems pretty obvious Bernice has feelings for him. One way to find out. Do a “Piro” Bernice, and KISS Jack. Right now! On the lips. If you don’t feel anything, just excuse yourself and say “the devil made you do it,” or something. Hey, people used to get away with all kinds of stuff by saying that. Of course it was about 50 years ago, but I digress.

    If nothing else Bernice, you will provided your “pal” Luann with a much needed barrel of laughs. So be of good cheer. And then, go put your fish in a bowl. ;)

    Jack is pulling the love trigger on a very vulnerable soul Bernice, even if it is not at all clear if he meant that, but then strait-laced Bernice does fall hard and fast, and this might be the hardest of all. What a rap the boy has “Kinda classy and quiet.” All in real Luannverse time before Luann. Will the nerdy girl and the sensitive jock type become a couple? Or are we just being jerked around artistically? I hope not because I don’t want to see Bernice crushed, I think Luann would be surprised if it happened though. Not jealous, maybe envious. But if it doesn’t what kind of friend would she be?

    Luann’s Loyal Fans: Your beloved Luann being snarky here. Bernice Haters: Luann being snarky here – yep. Even nice people like Jack and Luann cold snark as well as anybody. Luann – it is YOU who is boring. Jack chatted with Bernice while you wasted time trying to play fetch with Puddles. Jack found her interesting and definitely not boring. You are such a simpleton, Luann. Bernice is quiet because she is a thinker and uses her time well to say things that matter or have substance. Unlike you who yak and yak about nothing. Talk to fill up dead air. Like Bernice at the end of your bed reading or listening to music while you yak. Then she snarks and you go quiet. Yep. That.

    Well its probably the first time in her life that Bernice has been told she is classy. She probably thinks Jack is cute and is used to guys who she thinks are cute never saying anything remotely nice to her in recent memory as Piro was definitely a man of few words and although Gunnie definitely was attracted to her; she definitely never gave him a thought romantically. Its like the wallflower at the dance actually being invited to the dance floor. Luann is behaving well here, just making the obvious point that Bern is 180 degrees opposite of someone like wild child Tara, while dull is not the nicest thing to say, she isn’t acting upset or jealous either…….

    Bernice; aren’t you laying it on a bit thick? Haven’t you learned anything from hanging around Luann, Tiffany, and, the rest of the gang? Yes, the goldfish is a nice pet for you. Relatively low maintenance, relatively easily transportable. But, unless this goldfish is several steps up from the type you can win at a carnival, your thanks in the first panel, was just a “little” over the top.

    Bernice looks like she’s about to explode. I don’t know if it’s because this is the first time a guy has complimented her on her looks and she doesn’t know how to react or if for anything else. But this is good. Finally Bernice doesn’t know what to say♡. She, who always has a comment ready for everyone! Luann is enjoying the scene.

    Now Bernice just needs a 10 or 15 gallon tank along with some crushed rocks and a filter. Make sure the rocks are fish safe and don’t have toxic chemicals on them. Goldfish swallow rocks and use them to help grind up food in their stomachs since they don’t have teeth. Also use lemon juice or white vinegar and water to clean the tank and then rinse well. Don’t use soap because if you don’t rinse it well enough the residual soap will kill the fish.

    Well this is yet another example of Luann being just about the most obnoxious creep in comics. She implies to a possible romantic interest that her best friend of how many years is dull. Nice. It’s actually fun to watch her rude, insensitive, oblivious, dumb and self absorbed behavior remain so constant and predictable. If she turns this around and actually shows her friend some support and compassion I will be surprised.

    One compliment and Bernice is speechless? While I don’t see a Jack-Bernice relationship blooming, I do see a good potential friendship. And, to be frank, Bernice needs good friendships to get her to loosen up. Bernice has been wound too tightly since entering college; first with the RA job then her one-sided crush on Piro (the moocher).

    Aw…. sweet. Seems Bernice is not used to receiving compliments or gifts. (Still wondering about her upbringing and family life). I’d like to see this friendship grow. It’s nice that Luann doesn’t seem upset or put out by his gesture. She seems comfortable in her friendship with Jack to expand his comment about Bernice. It’s obvious that Jack likes Bernice, and she likes him, but I hope this relationship grows slowly. I wouldn’t be surprised if Luann helps, rather than getting jealous. It’s time for her to grow up emotionally. Hope springs eternal! ;-)

    Berenice seems to be very flattered and flustered. She also looks interested in Jack! And Jack’s expression says that he is at least a little bit interested in HER! Luann, meanwhile, can’t resist the opportunity to get in a little dig at Bernice. I’m not sure if this is because Luann herself is interested in Jack or she just doesn’t like Berenice having Jack’s attention when she’s used to having him all to herself.

    A perfect example of the amnesia Mordock is always talking about, although he claims it only shows up in the female characters. Remember the bowling date when Jack accidentally broke Luann’s foot? Jack was going to carry her out, presumably to get her medical help, when Bernice came bursting over, being her usual bossy, obnoxious self, pushing Jack away, snapping: “NO! I’ll do it! You leave her alone!” then half strangling poor Luann as she dragged her out of the bowling ally.

    Jack has obviously forgotten that incident if he is now referring to Bernice as “classy and quiet.”

    I think I’m perceiving a sea change in the Luaniverse and its characters. Probably as a shift from Greg-based strips to Karen-based strips. ALL characters are to be accepted as presented NOW!

    Luann, Bernice, Tiffany, Gunther, Les, Tom Ferrell, Mom and Dad DeGroot… Any character that has existed in the past, i.e., high school and beyond is to pay less attention to their past behaviors and attitudes and accept the NEW character at face value.

    Maybe I am just off here, and I am different with my close friends. After reading so many comments here about how LuAnn isn’t a friend cause of her snarky comment or what Bern and Jack said at the dog park about Lu the snark is deserved … Bern and Lu are best friends, Lu and Jack are good friends. Friends talk crap about each other. They razz each other. Thats life, its what you do. You go walking with your friend, they fall down, you point at them, laugh your butt off at them, take a quick picture, call them stupid and then help them back up. Bern and Lu are best friends cause they accept each other and both can be their true selves around each other without having to worry.

    Bernice’s “feelings” are that a nice looking guy has complimented her, and as she is actually shy, she doesn’t quite know how to react. If she had other feelings for him, she wouldn’t have sat on that park bench perfectly calm and talked to him without any sign of nervousness.

    And Luann is fine with it because she showed months (or possibly years) ago that Jack is just a friend. Let the girls have friends, everything doesn’t have to be about romance.
