ha-hah, the race is on
Stefani will eliminate the competition?
This is an unexpected (and unwanted) twist, So this is going to be a Valentine’s day arc. sigh Hopefully Stef will be as bad at MatchMaking as Kip asserts.
Ox knows the saying about 3’s a crowd.
I am curious about "But He- ", maybe Ox owns a team?
Ox wanted to go pro but he…what, Kip????
Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match. Find me a find, catch me a catch.
No, let’s not.
It sounds like Stef has had some failures at matchmaking, or at least once. Kip isn’t pleased with the idea.
Okay so what happens next? Does Stef try to arrange a double date with Ox and Tiff going out with her and Kip? If that does happen does it goes sideways for Stef with Kip spending more time with either Oxford or Tiffany than her?
So Ox was a star football player in high school, but he’s never had a girlfriend. Yeah, no. He’d have had to beat them off with a stick. I know tackles aren’t as hot as the quarterback, but hey, Ox was #1 Tackle in his division. Has to count for something with the women.
Another thought: I hope Ox was on break when he left Tiff to chat with a customer.
Oxford, the Ox is a silent partner of the Fuse?
Please don’t do your cupid thing, Tiffany doesn’t need it from you
Ox should be with someone who he has more in common with, like…like… Well, Kip is the only one remotely like him, but Ox seems to be into girls. And I don’t think any of the cast of girls has anything in common with him. And no, Tiffany still owes him nothing.
Got you two together?
More like you got him locked in a scissor hold, and he is unable (or is it unwilling?) to get himself free.
Seriously the only connection these two seem to have is pelvic ( my apologies).
Still, with all the people shipping Tiffany and Ox together over the years? And now it’s subject verboten after Stef suggests it? Not that I’d blame anyone.
Ox has a number 77 jersey that she can wear?
Seems like Tiffany and Oz are truly friends, like Tiffany and Gunther! I think Ox and Tara would be an interesting combo!
Listen to him, Stef. He’s trying to tell you something
Kip-poo looks as though he is having second thoughts about them being together.
“…..wanted to go pro, but he—-”. Most interesting part is the rest of Kip’s thought. What kept Ox from playing football?
Stef stay away from Tiff her and Ox do not need your help or is it Tiff and Kip so many questions without any answers.
Stef is trying to play her broken record.
I bet she’s probably a pretty good creative writer too.
Steph is going to get her and Kip apart too eventually. Often Kip looks disgusted by Steph’s actions.
I kind of sense a break-up after looking at his face in the third and fourth panel~
Okay, which one of you in the comments section is the inspiration for Stef?
Looks like the petals are slowly falling off Steffi and Kippy’s bloom. AND, by getting Tiff and OX together, Steffi thinks she will keep Tiff away from “her” man.
Something tells me that Stef’s attempt will end up with Ox and Tiffany hating each other very much, their friendship ruined forever or a great, irremediable awkwardness between them. Because it’s now clear that Stef is a “wrong” version of Tiffany and does not have her skills with people.
I don’t think there is going toe a future for Kip and her. Kip isn’t stupid, just horny….
I feel like kip isn’t as into this relationship as she thinks he is.
I want to know more about Ox.
So Stef figures if she puts Ox with Tiff, Tiff will be distracted from going after her Kippy-poo,poo.” Plus, it will end the budding “Bromance.”
Nice idea, WRONG intentions.
There are a number of characters asking for it in this Strip.
Stef just shot up to the top of the list.
Wow this is a patented turn of events setting up the next week, possibly more than one week, given, as BB points out, the possible Valentine’s Day angle. First we have the news that Ox(ford) wanted to turn pro, but, then darn, Steffi interrupts with the news that is so obvious to anyone (probably) other than completely clueless Tiffany (I’m not so sure she is that clueless) that Ox has feelings for Tiffany, then the the conversation between Kip and Steffi (they do more than stupe each other, who knew?) about her plan to be cupid and his negative opinion about it. SO MUCH. Disaster? New romance? More about Ox(ford) and his pro ball possibilities. Steffi, Kip normal BF/GF relationships? Well one thing I can predict with certainty: HILARITY WILL ENSUE.
If she wasn’t banging poor Kip every other hour, he would not be there. I suspect Kip is starting to think there should be more to a relationship.
What would be Kip’s real first name? Kiplinger?
As CCR once said “I see a bad Moon rising. I see trouble on the way”..
And he looks really thrilled about it, too… doesn’t he?
It’s hard to imagine Greg even contributing to this arc. This seems to be totally Karen’s.
yah The No you are Not .aahhh haa Very Interesting
Yep, Brunette and Blonde dumb.
Here we go. Passive interference by Stef. So——are all y’all Tiff/Ox shippers going to poo poo Stef’s plans for them? Just askin’.
“I’m good at it.” | “No, you’re not.” | “I got us together, Kip-poo”. — Hence the comment.
Kippy-Poo: time to trade up from Staph to Tiff!
When is the little slut going to get her come up pins?
Yeah but your relationship is holding on by a string.
“your cupid thing” showing she does it a lot and i think he’s getting tired of her
So, to her other detractions, which include but are not limited to being: Smarmy, superficial, annoying, cloying, overbearing, multi-etc., Stef has now added meddling busy-body. Well … no surprise here.
“Stupid cupid thing” — oh dear. She must regularly try to get people together. How mortifying that must be for Kip to have to watch. Stef, don’t mess with other people’s love lives! Actually listen to the guy!
Ok. I know that that is supposed to be Kip’s shoulder with him giving a sideways glance at Stef in the third panel, but I can’t see anything but Kip with breasts. X-P
Sounds like someone is just about done with all of her crap
I was enjoying having a dislikable Stephanie. Her vapid stupidity provided a nice target for Tiffany’s wisecracks. Now they’re going to try to make her into a nice person who cares about others. The only way to save this is to have her try to match up Tiff and Ox only to fall in love with Ox herself, leaving Kip to be Tiffany’s first boyfriend, then we could watch the dilemma unfold regarding his sexual expectations.
he looks LESS than thrilled…
I want to know why he didn’t go pro!
Gag. :-p. Shoog.
Kip-poo, sounds like Doo-doo, and it’s full of s***. Nothing endearing about that.
So is she good at it or not? Will Tiff give Ox a tumble? GnK have broadly hinted at Ox carrying the torch for Tiffany. They have been shown together paired up since high school in various venues, especially swimming parties while Tiff and Luann fought over Quill.
Stef is so annoying. Cutsie, but totally empty headed. How dis she get in university anyway?
How long before Tiff and Ox are in the Privacy hut?
Hmmm, Stef says she’s good at playing cupid. Kip says she isn’t. Stef says she got the two of them together. Could that have anything to do with Kip thinking she’s not good at it?
She’s probably good on her knees I can see breakup coming
And Tiffany got you back together
But he… what?? Ugh! Why did she interrupt him? I really want to know about Ox! :D
Oxford’s family is well off, apparently. This was hinted at in the days when employee Brad was being hit on at Weenie World by, then manager, Ann Eiffel. So maybe he could keep Tiff in the manner to which she has become accustomed, as they say?
No, you’re just easy.
Looks like somebody is gonna play Aphrodite.
I wanted to hear about Ox
Earlier on, I said Stef was the only female character that could make Tiff likable. It’s now evolved to the point what – all on her own – Stef is TOTALLY unlikable.
Do not play Cupid, please!
“cupid” thing, or “stupid” thing?
I hope this arc ends with Kip walking out—for good!!
This “being bad at playing cupid” comment may mean that Steffi may set Kip up with Tiff. That could lead to serious ramifications for the Kip-Ox bromance! Ox may sack Kip once more. It could also lead to serious disruptions in the Quad. Just how complicated are GnK going to continue to make life absurdly difficult for Tiffany!?!?
Why do self designated matchmakers persist in attempting to play cupid when one has told them one is “not looking” and doesn’t want to be “fixed up”? Do people enjoy making a nuisance of themselves?
I wonder what Stef ordered.
Betcha it isn’t “humble pie”.
I, too, have had to deal with self-appointed matchmakers. They always try to fix me up with fat girls.
Kip-Poo? Oh god some cute couple names should be banned.
I imagine for quarterback Kip, Stef is just his latest squeeze. He’s still too young to commit.
Yeah… about that Kimmee-poo
While I don’t want to instigate another bout of Bernice bashing, this is probably the first time I’ve seen her have something in common with Stef. I seem to remember an arc where both she and Tiffany were interested in Piro. I think this was when Gunther was trying to ask Bernice out and she ignored that and aggressively tried to set him up with Tiffany in order to get Tiffany out of competition for Piro.
Who does Stef want to get out of the way more, Ox or Tiffany? Ox because Kips gives him attention or Tiffany because she might be a threat to her relationship?
Would you call Stef needy.
I am pretty sure he is regretting being with you, Steph.
I don’t think Ox is Tiff’s type…I’d hate to see him get hurt :-(
So is she good at it or not? If she’s planning to get Ox (who has a big crush on Tiffany) together with Tiffany (who has no interest in Ox in any way at other than as a friend) she’s got her work cut out for her. But, she DID read Ox correctly!
Yep,Steff got she and Kip together.At least until the glue wears off.
Query: am I the only person in this gabfest who noticed that Ox is shown facing away from Stef & Kip when he said “Tifffany”? Where does Stef get off with the line about him “lighting up”? (Wishful thinking?)
But he…. what?! Blew out an ALC during the senior homecoming game? Got busted at a kegger and was thrown off the team? Became a Quaker and has sworn off violence??? What?!! I demand answers!!!
It would be interesting to see Ox and Tiffany together. We know very little about Ox and I think Crystal once commented that Tiffany has never had a boyfriend.
there may be cracks in this budding young romance
1st time I’ve see Kip with more than 2 facial expressions. Starting to seem like a real character, instead of 1 dimensional piece of cardboard.
Ox is starting to remind me of Lunker from Retail (gawd, I miss Retail! Just found that the archives are open again!)
I sense a disturbance in the force.
I would have liked to hear the end of Kip’s sentence about Ox.
Is Kip regretting that " close encounter" ?? If he does, he’s on the path to “not gittin’ any”..
Wow, she is bad at alot of things…
Kippy-Poo, doesn’t Staphy-Waffy make you want to barfie-warfie?
She is lowering the bar for all bubbleheads, setting a new low standard against which all future bubbleheads will be measured!
Greg Evans keeps hinting at them becoming a couple. Ox is an easy character to like but too poorly drawn to become a major character.
Ox + Tiff 4EVA
So why didn’t Ox go pro? Career ending injury? This is probably the most interesting thing to come up in this arc, truth be told….
As for Steffi? If the annoyance scale was from one to ten, she would rank a 98. She’s cute and all that, but she seems to be a hassle and a half….
I think Kip is thinking what the hell am I doing with this flake.
The perfect pair. Kip and Stef that is——-NOT Tif and Ox.
She’s got squinty eyes. Never trust a person with squinty eyes.
He seems so thrilled with her, too.
No one asked for a matchmaker, woman.
And that was Kip’s mistake.
His point exactly…
Now, what was that about Ox’s football career…?
stef is just a wee bit disgusting.
Stef may be technically correct, but I wish she’d butt out! She will surely queer the do somehow.
But I do hope Oxford and Tiffany get together sometime soon….
What time do they switch days. Central mountain or pacicic
This is becoming the odd couple.
Kip is prob a pretty cool dude, but he has an annoying habit… “Steff.”
“Kip-poo” looks like he’s getting tired of Steff.
