definitely Stefani is all four
And there you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Stef gets away with being a monster (again) with a non apology.
I’m done with wanting Tiff to just smack her. Time to go on Google and search “How Do I Murder An Obnoxious Cheerleader And Get Away With It?” LOL
Does anyone have a good viable idea?? LOL
A non-apology right out of the Channel Awesome play book: “We regret that you feel that way.”
Well she fooled us. There was an apology, of sorts. She keeps Kip and all returns to status quo.Maybe tomorrow the girls will wrap things up plotting a little revenge.
Embrace the power of “and.”
Kip, as drawn, looks concerned about…
It should have been, “I’m sorry, I’m an a s s”
It’s time to vote Stefani Bird out
Bets calls a spade a spade.
I’m starting to not like Kip. I question his motives.
Oh look at that: I was proven right. As was @comic reader 22:
“I’ll say it again. Prepare yourselves for a conclusion to this story that goes absolutely nowhere. No apologies, no eviction, no break-up, no vindication, no resolution.”
Vote her off the island girls! Kip,you need to escape…now!
Funny how the message on Dez’s green shirt goes from “Peace 24-7” to “Greg 9 30”. Did Stef do that too? :)
I wonder if Kip weren’t there, would the three girls gang up on Stef?
If anyone EVER calls me Shoog…….
Yep. Tiff’s answer is the correct one. Sometimes multiple choice questions need an “all of the above” option.
Just how long will she have Kip? I think he will tire of her.
I’m getting shivers. My high school best friend could have made Stef’s speech word for word, completely oblivious to anyone else’s feelings, and always trying to sound upbeat no matter what. Yet I loved her positivity and thought any problem was with me.
When we grew up, and she got divorced, she became my roommate for a time, with some others. But we had to commit her to a mental hospital when she couldn’t stop singing for seven days and nights. In the last conversation I had with her, years later, she told me about how she had just lost custody of her little boy during another hospital stint, and concluded with, “Isn’t it wonderful how I get to help Jesus bear his cross?” in that same high, fake, everything-is-fine voice, albeit a little trembling. Then I tried to find out her address but she could only give me a weird description of her metaphysical place in the cosmos. I never heard from her again.
God bless her and help her. I hope, wherever she is, that she’s all right and getting the care she needs.
Kip doesn’t look too happy. Hopefully that look on his face is foreshadowing good things to come. Like the end of this arc.
Can they vote her off the quad?
All of the above.
Stef needs to have “Ta-Ta” tattooed on her butt.
Actually not that stupid. Looks like Stef found a way to end this without an apology.
Why even bother with a non-apology? Why not flat-out say something along the lines of: “I would sooner ingest hemlock than demean myself by apologizing to the likes of you!”
That’s the sentiment behind such statements anyway.
Tiffany should be thinking, “There, but for background story and character development, go I.”
“I’m sorry you got offended” is not an apology.
Of course Steffo would use the word “panties”. Yuck.
Why is Kip so stupid?
She’s sorry they got offended, but not sorry about what she accued them of.
Great comment Tiff
Just say “No apology, no ‘alone time with Kip’ here.”It may not affect her, but I’d bet Kip couldn’t perform with an audience.
Maybe she’ll flunk out. She doesn’t spend any time studying…but then, neither do the others.
Bets has spoken for everyone here. Even sweet and peaceful Dez who always thinks the best of everyone seems to agree with her. This is so great! It’s awful that Stef goes away quietly and unable to understand how awful what she did was, but her roommates can’t stand her more and more and Kip glares at her knowing how absurd her girlfriend is. Stef’s fall may not be near, but it seems inevitable and will be awesome to see!
Next time Stef appears we should all say “Shut up Stef. You’re just a Stef.”
I would hope that when Stef returns she’ll find all of her stuff piled in the hallway with a note reading “Good luck finding somewhere else to live, it won’t be here”.
Or Tiffany will just turn to the other two and say, “Stuff this, let’s go stay at my Dad’s house this semester.”
Certainly oblivious. Weak “apology”. Kip’s shifting eye in frame 2 seems to agree with Bets’ assessments. Doesn’t seem, though, the other three are going to try to push Stef outta the quad.
Why is she back? You don’t have to keep the same dorm mates. People get told, “Find another roomie for next year.” Unless we’re caught in a time loop where everything remains in place for the next 12 years. That is a gut-wrenching fear.
So Greg must think she’s a fun character to have in the strip, but I sure don’t think so. Why on earth wouldn’t the three roomies who get along so well just have given her the boot?Got to remember this is fantasy land.
All vectors pointing in.
It’s time for you to get rid of that witch, once and for all!
Time to have an “intervention”, ladies. Get some professional input from the Psych Department, and have at her.
Actually, this doesn’t mean anything. Most men are not big on drama — he might just get her alone somewhere and THEN dump her.
she’s hoping you all will drop it and spare her from your wrath… meh, not sure if it’s worth it anymore… there are just some people that will never learn there lessons no matter how many times they get taught it. :\
So, are those two headed to the bedroom now?
Staph is past airhead and into helium head, swollen helium head: it is a wonder that she doesn’t just float away into the air, like the Hindenburg!
I wonder if Kip is going to let this go. He doesn’t look happy. Of course, he doesn’t seem to expect much from a girlfriend except that she be female.
I’m betting that within the month, she won’t have her Kip any longer.
If she was a dog, she’d chase parked cars.
Welcome to Trump’s world…
Like a Hitchcock ending; abruptly and ambiguously without any real closure leaving it to the viewer’s imagination as to what happens.
Look up “anticlimactic” in the dictionary and this strip will be pictured, Shoog
Shunning might be fun
Yep, all of them. Surprised there was no comment from Dez.
All she needs is that punch in the face she didn’t get yesterday.
Well Kip should see a side of her that is not attractive. But maybe the good looking side is too distracting?
Sadly, I’ve found that in real life these are the women who wind up really wealthy. I personally know one—not a friend, but someone I went to high school with. She deliberately got pregnant because she was “in love” and knew the guy would marry her. So he didn’t go to college, instead getting a job. When she found someone richer she dumped him. She’s on husband number three and lives in a gorgeous house on the lake. I haven’t talked to her in 40 years, but friends who have say she’s still pretty and seems really happy. That’s only one example I can give—I know of others second-hand. These types of women seem to skate by and nearly always wind up doing well. They must be really good in bed because it sure isn’t their personality.
Bets nailed it.
I’m telling you, emotional strike is the way to go. 2 months and 8 days of the silent treatment, and the witch we had in our quad junior year moved out. We three left celebrated with strawberry wine coolers and pizza from the good pizza place!
I vote for (A) and (B).
I would have to agree with Tiffany.
Evans has a knack for piling up the crap on these hateful characters to the point where you just don’t want to read the strip anymore. It happened to me with Anne Eiffel and it’s happening again now. Time to drop this strip – again.
Just an observation. Based on readers’ reactions, Greg and Karen should consider adjusting their story ending policies. Every story seems to have a character that deserves some kind of consequence for their actions, but they always back away from any kind of resolution – even though their fans want to see justice done. As a result, the comic strip ends up being milk-toast and predictable, and I don’t think that’s what they want. Maybe it is. I get involved in the stories, and especially enjoy the drawings, but it gets boring when I know it’s going to all fizzle out in the end. I would love to see them prove me wrong tomorrow. A single pane with all of Steffi’s boxes out in the hall would work for me.
This chick is headed for congress if she picks the right district.
You call that, an “apology,” Stef? You’d have been better off saying:
One more thing.
Kip expended more energy in stopping Tiff from punching Stef, than he did in making sure that Stef sincerely atones for what she did. Instead, he allows his girlfriend to lead him out by the nose.
He’s almost as bad as she is. :-(
We can only hope that Kip will grow tired of her, and dump her, leaving Stef to implore Bets for help in doing a griping TikTok vid calling men trash. This would become far more plausible if Gun & Bets split.
I’m still thinking that it’s a HIMYM-style “autumn of breakups” in progress.
Kip, sweetie, honey, darling, sugar baby, listen please. Dump her and run. I don’t care how good she is in bed, it’s NOT WORTH IT. She’s gonna make your life miserable.
Like I keep saying hilarity ensues. I mean there is more and the disappointment we might feel with no definitive end to this near month long are is out there, one just has to be patient. It will come presently.
She should dump Kip and date Johnny Depp. “I stepped on a ring” [insert weird fake look of horror]
With Kip “dragging” Stef away, there might be more of a chance for HER panties to get in an knot.
I think a better question is: Is Kippy-poo any or all of the three? Dump the chump Kip!
Yep, still enjoying this arc along with most of the comments. :-)
So, will Stef get chucked out of the dorm over this?
My guess is she will not, since she was only put there to provide dramatic tension.
the look on kips face sort of says it’;s not over yet.
I love your comic strip, but keep up with this Stef crap and you lose me Greg.
The fact Kip has her for a girlfriend doesn’t help the stereotype about dumb jocks.
I would vote her off the island….or this strip! I would like to ask Kip if he really thinks this gal is worth it?I mean, the very best of times can’t be worth this idiot!There are better gals to hang out with here for sure.Yeah, I know, its just a cartoon. Since I seldom laugh at this strip I sometimes forget.
Well, the look on Kip and the shoogs faces suggests otherwise, Stef, ole girl.
Greg often let’s a theme run for a while but brings a lesson/change in the person, like that guy that was bullying Brad, and the Tiff, look how much she’s changed.
Tiffany is soooooo rght!
Kip is an enabler. Getting some “action”, of course, from Stef, we get it, but an enabler none the less. I have lost respect (what little I had) for him.
I’m with Tiff on all four descriptions of Stef.
Kip does not look happy with Stefi in either panel. I think he will have some harsh words for her tomorrow. She is holding onto him, he is not holding her.
and she votes!
All of the above, Bets. All of the above….
The stupid one is Kip!
That’s it? What happened to the rug comment yesterday? I thought that meant something. Dang, this is disappointing.
Kip kooks like he’s beginning to have some doubts!
She’s really into herself!!!
Hate that many of us know people like that … even related to some. :-/
Note the non-apology: “I’m sorry YOU got offended”, not “I’m sorry for what I did”. It’s beyond time to vote her and her accomplice boy-toy off the island.
One more day left and nobody mentioned the truth! Stef hid the ring under the rug and wanted the stir everything up by accusing Tiffany and others of taking it. If Kip doesn’t wake up tomorrow, he is the dumbest character in Luann!
Time to vote her off the island.
Kip is clearly a nincompoop.
quite simple … murder her ego. Kip finds someone nicer to date and Stef loses her concentration and starts failing at cheer and they let her go from the squad. Stock up on tissues and problem solved.
She reminds me of Tiffany in high school. She has grown up so well.
For those that might be watching tonight’s Giants game, I’ll be a few rows up right behind the plate in the Field Club section 115 yelling “Go Steffi, please go Steffi…”
Time for Steffi to go.
So NOW what are they gonna do?
All the above.
Don’t lie, we are all calling folks Shoog now….. LOL
Saturday’s strip I’d love to see.
Panel 1 would be today’s panel 3 backwards. The text in the balloons could even be backwards.
Panel 2 would be Kip with tumb upraised where Stef can’t see it, but Dez, Tiff, and Bets can.
He agrees with them, but then again, they aren’t getting any from her.
Paint a box of thumbtacks black and scatter them by the Privacy Hut
The fact Kip is letting her off the hook as well is more disappointing.
Ladies, it’s time for an intervention…
Please, make Stef just go away!
Some kind of better ending must be going to happen tomorrow. Can she really get away this garbage????
Thinking positively, I am looking forward to Shannon Sunday and a new Bernice/Nil arc next week.
“I’m sorry you got offended … " is no apology at all.
I would like to see Tiffany lose weight and transform back into a gorgeous butterfly, to find that people treat her like she is Stef. She has held a job. She is working hard in college. I think at this point she would have some perspective on being treated like an ornament.
All in favor of rooming in Tiff’s mansion and leaving Stef and Kippy the apartment?
Kip is a little hard to read, altogether. Here he is giving Stef a bit of side-eye, as though he, too, thinks she’s a problem. Being a good lay can offset a multitude of problems, though, as long as he can make her stop talking. For which there is a tried and true method, but you can’t do both things at once.
Bets, you forgot “lying, conniving, shallow and two-faced.”
All of the above
Without her muscular boyfriend she’d be ugly now.
I so wanted Kip to look at Steph and realize “This woman is nuts and I need to get out of this”
OK… time to regroup. I’m glad to see that Bets and Tiff are on the same page. I think they will come up with something though I can’t imagine what
Kip just looks bored to me. And maybe a little in awe of Stefi for wiggling out of a bad situation.
Some people really, really, REALLY just don’t want to learn from their actions.
And who wants to bet that next summer, she’ll want Tiff to store her things all over again?
tomorrow: aftermath; decisions?
Someone is about to get voted off the island.
Wrong on all counts, Bets. Steph isn’t delusional, oblivious, unhinged nor stupid.
She’s selfish, conceited, immature annnndddd…….
…..conniving. Very much the last. Look at the previous arcs. By one example, when the fellow girls set up a “private” room, Steph would mark it all up for herself selfishly. When the other girls sought to “adjust” this situation, she threw a tantrum, and the other girls rolled with it and let her have her way ultimately. So much for “stupid.”
Now with this latest week’s events, Steph used all conniving means to “redirect” the subject from her earlier misguided accusations. Mission accomplished for now, it seems.
Steph has increasingly become a very detestable character in this comic. But she’s really just a plot device, like Ann Eifel (“Awful”) earlier on.
She’s also the negative karma to Tiffany of what Tiff used to be to Luann in earlier decades. Recall the cell phone video recording by Tiff of Luann in the girl’s locker room, many years ago? But we should allow Tiff’s character growth in more recent years.
Someone opined earlier the future possibility of Kip getting Steph pregnant. That wouldn’t surprise me as Steph’s future wake-up call within this comic world. But we’ll see.
It’s not the silly mix up that they are upset about, it’s the way Steff treated them.
Tiff sums it up (literally). Stef is Walking, Talking, Insufferable Trouble. Maybe Kip will keep her away from the dorm room this year….
How about experimenting with fentanyl?
Can we get the bimbo Steff pregnant so she has to move out of the dorms?
Pack her stuff put it outside the door and change the locks.
The sad thing is, there are people out there just like her.
One-word summation perfection.
Hey Greg! I love the autographed t-shirt in panel three!!!
