    A lot of you called it that it was Tara in Lu’s room, and I’m presuming that you didn’t mean they were in an intimate relationship.

    Crash where, Tara? No wonder Luann wouldn’t share her midnight noises with Bernice. Looks like Tara is coming to crash at the DeGroot’s house. Possibly room with Bernice? Or the sofa. I am sure Bernice will insist she go to the sofa. And parole? Figures. Tara is not exactly a reputable type – makes sense she has a criminal cousin. Luann, you are having a bit too much fun with Bernice. You could have told her you are helping out a friend in need and will explain later.

    Tara Starr, “the Moony University Vending Machine Bandit”, needs to avoid unpleasantries of the law. Looks like Tara is currently homeless and needs a place. Maybe, Jack will show up and work out a solution. A possible solution, Tiffany has plenty of room and can offer Tara a job ?

    Okay I took full Luannverse glory I called Tara early, although so many others did as well. I thought there would be some kind of reason Luann will communicate with Tara and possibly help her out, and this beginning gives a really strong foundation story. It seems that Tara wants to get away from her cousin, which was the reason she needed to crash with Luann and get back and pack before her cousin knew. Where is Tara going to stay? What is the back-story?

    It would be an exercise in futility, but I would strongly advise Luann to disassociate herself with Tara. I’m sure Tara is fun to be around, in measured doses, but Tara lives way too messy a life; these people will drag you down with them if you let them.

    Well whattaya know.

    Those of you who predicted Tara were RIGHT.

    What’s MORE, those of you who said Luann was pranking Bernice were also RIGHT.

    Disappointing? Yeah.

    But hey. Congrats and a tip ’O the Hatlo Hat to each of you!


    No new “ground breaking” adult stories this time around.

    All is well.

    Or WILL it be? Luann just told Tara that she pranked Bernice. What are the odds that Tara will ask for “deets?” And Upon learning those “deets” will Tara urge Lu to keep to keep the joke going at Bernice’s expense. Right on up to and including “hooking Jack up with Bernie?” Or pretending to?

    I dunno. I’m not a Bernice fan, but frankly I think what Lu did to her so-called best friend Bernice, last week was just a tad MEAN. What’s WORSE, Lu just bragged to Tara about it. The worse person possible.

    Tara, the gal that once teased Luann about T.A. Howie liking her. And Jack went right along with it. Tara has ZERO empathy, and LOVES teasing.

    Nothing GOOD will come of letting Tara know that Bern likes Jack.

    Ha! Look what happened off panel, Luann and Tara went from casual friends to great friends! Now it’s okay to say Rosa and Delta call everyone back home all the time, Luann goes to work every day, and Tara explained why she stole that TV. It all happened off panel, so you can’t prove it didn’t happen!

    Tara has her own rap sheet. Now she needs a hush hush place to crash. Is there really a cousin? Or, is Tara not telling Luann the truth? And, will Bernice’s alter ego, the spy, be lurking in the bushes? Personally, I see Bernice squealing like a little piglet and the FBI coming to visit Luann’s suspected “safe house”. Don’t worry, Luann, they probably won’t water board you.

    Crash and burn. I take my lumps.

    Tara sleeps over at Luann’s.

    I’m not sure which is more disappointing.

    That Luann is sneaking Tara into her bedroom at night.

    Or that Tara returned at all.

    Mister Mordock: Looks like a healthy dose of amnesia going on around here. I can’t think of a good reason Luann should be helping her out.

    And the crash and burn is, unless Jack stumbles across our soon-to-be threesome, it just became doubtful that this will become a Valentine’s day thing-a-ma-bob.

    Those of of us who actually expected Luann’s overnight visitor to be someone Luann was getting “busy” are probably disappointed. Those of us who remembered Greg’s own guidelines for this strip aren’t surprised that it was something as relatively innocent as Luann lending a surreptitious hand to Tara.

    Oh, so “Sticky-Fingers Tara” is back… it’s no wonder Luann is hiding her from Bernice.. If you run with dogs, you’re gonna get fleas… and as much as Bernice is a basket case, at least she isn’t a lowlife thief from a lowlife family. When Bernice finds out about Tara hiding out in Luann’s room, she will have a major meltdown..

Hired killer looking for Tara for any of above? Writer just needed reason to bother Bernice and there is no logical reason for the hush?

    I’M SO HAPPY TO SEE TARA AGAIN!!!!!♡♡♡!!!!! And I love the way Luann is amused for having caused Bernice to fall into deep suspicion. Whatever Tara’s problem is, is heavy and she asked for Luann’s help saying to keep the secret, and Luann is doing it ♡! I was sure their friendship was strong♡♡♡ and Luann’s good heart pushes her to help friends in trouble ♡. The touch of the small vapors near their mouth is excellent, it shows that this happens in winter more than coats. Now, I hope they tell us more about Tara’s problems and how it will be handled. If she becomes another Degroots guest at Luann’s house, Bernice will freak out. If she finds another place, I hope Luann decides to try to be more independent and move in with her. Again, Bernice will freak out! ♡♡♡

    Kudos to all who figured out the Tara angle. And seems like me and others who thought this was Luann plotting to get Bernice together with Jack were wrong.

    However, none of this explains why Luann left Puddles behind when she was going to the dog park. Why meet at the dog park at all? If the goal is for Tara not to be seen by her crazy cousin, why be out in the open?

    (Also you’re technically not supposed to go there without a dog, you know. There are rules!)

    to be fair, when Luann heard Bern talking in her room in the mddle of the night she pushed and prodded Bern to tell her what it was all about. Now it is Bern who hears conversation in Luann’s room at 4 or 5 am; she hears her name mentioned and someone leaving through the window. Wouldn’t any one wonder? Luann could just say a girlfriend from college has trouble at home and needed to spend the night. A frothy snit? Bern didn’t use language like that to describe Luann’s pushiing and prodding.

    As usual, the Luann storyline has so many holes it could be swiss cheese. Supposed cousin “breaks” parole and stays home to be easily found. And what is “breaking” parole? Failed to show up for the check in? Started carrying an AK47? Robbed a bank? Makes no sense to me. I think Tara is a con artist and Luann, being a bubblehead, is an easy target. Maybe Bernice will intervene and call her out.

    Well, this is a little surprising, finding out it was Tara staying in Luann’s room.

    Okay, I really have to take a stand for Bernice here. She may not be my favorite character in the strip, but the way Luann is treating her is not funny. Lu may be getting a kick out of “pranking” Bernice, but I’m pretty sure Bernice isn’t laughing. A joke isn’t funny if it hurts. And Bernice is already having issues of her own about being abandoned, and already feels like an outsider. So, no, I think Lu is out of line here. She’s offering aid and comfort to Tara, which is fine. But there’s no reason to hide her unless she’s on the run from either the cops or her cousin. For those people who say, “Lu was only joking. Can’t Bern take a joke?” I say, “A joke isn’t funny if it hurts somebody.”

    Does Bern know of Luann’s “friendship” with Tara? I put friendship in quotes because the last we saw of Tara she was being obnoxious in Zebo’s class and sabotaging Luann who was Zebo’s TA. We haven’t seen them together since. If Bern shows up with Puddles there could be problems. Bern played a role in getting Tara expelled from Mooney; probably neither thinks much of the other.

    And a coming out of nowhere is, Tara. I didn’t think Luann would sneak a guy in her room, but it is strange that Greg can’t give her a normal, young adult relationship. Luann did not prank Bern: she merely let Bern believe what she wanted to. And she knows that Bern and Tara are like oil and water, so she wanted to avoid any scenes.
