    I still think Gunther’s costume is weak. Dahl isn’t doll. If that were okay, then he could’ve dressed up as Luann’s pool party arc.. because it was Dull. ;)

    So is Luann’s chest for real.. or is she playing with Confederate money?? lol


    I hope everyone has bought their candy for tonight.. I still need to purchase a couple bags. (it seems to have disappeared) hehe

    Say what you will about Dolly Parton, but she is truly a gem and a treasure. Here in Tennessee, she has done so much for underprivileged children in rural areas, particularly her hometown of Sevierville, because she knew what it was like to grow up in an underprivileged environment, and never lost sight of that . . . unlike our state’s (and really, our country’s) politicians who claim that know what it’s like to have to work hard to make something out of themselves, and then once they do, just dismiss the rest of us as being lazy and wanting free handouts from the government without working for it.

    Yesterday Dolly, I mean Luann did not look that prominent in the balcony department.

    Meanwhile I’m not sure if Tiffany really is “Curvy Barbie.” She looks a lot more like “Peekaboo Barbie.” I hope she’s wearing shorts under that dress(?).

    In a way I’m relieved that The Runaway Bride has not appeared in today’s strip. Maybe if we’re luck they’ll leave her out of the party and pivot to Piro and the writing assignment next week and leave the Betscalypses to another novella.

    For those who felt sorry for Ox during his “experiment” with Luann…here he is, talking, because he enjoys talking with Tiffany. Theirs was a mutual lack of interest. Now when Bets shows up, she’s going to have a hard time believing that “enhanced” Luann isn’t interested in Gunther, since they came to the party together.

    Nice try, Luann but you’re not fooling anybody.

    I think Tiffany missed an opportunity to dress as Tiffany from the Chucky movies. She’d honestly rock that look.

    Gunther’s costume idea is weak, yeah punny and all but Roald Dahl wrote a lot of books and just putting one cover on a thing on your chest and calling yourself Roald Dahl isn’t really impressive coming from Mr. Costume designer.

    Well Roald Dahl is not a doll and neither is Dolly Patron. She is a living human being. Yeah, using her first name as reason to pass yourself as costuming as a doll is lame, Luann. Dahl is a dead human author. They should have come as Raggedy Ann and Andy. Anyway, I guess we will see Bets on Friday for the showdown.

    No “Padding?” Well, Yee-haw!

    (A-Hem) In that get+up, Bets might not recognize Luann. So Gunny? Just Tell Bets that “lady” is your long lost cousin from Nashville.

    And if that doesn’t work, (And can bet the house it WON’T) Ox should stick close.

    Gunny will need him to referee.

    And later, to escort him to the local E/R. ;-)

    Dunno if the idea for the costumes was Luann’s or Gunther’s. But since there’s already TJ dressed as Woody, it’s a good thing they decided to be original. The explanation was a must and I like Luann’s confidence. Like the skilled a actress she is, she totally got into her role. It would be funny if they asked her to sing something later, maybe a duo with another one of the guest. Let’s hope that Bets’ arrival will be welcomed with joy.

    Tiff any is playing a game, but which I do not know. Did she invite Bets because they are friends? Why did she not warn Gunther that Bets was coming. I know Bets asked her not to, but Tiffany knew that Gunther was coming with Luann. If Tiffany was Gunther’s friend she would warn him about Bets, or not invited Bets to avoid the ugly scene that is about to happen. So is Tiffany setting up Gunther for humiliation or is she setting up Bets, who blew off staying at the Manse over summer even before Bets knew about the road trip?

Eat your ❤️ out lowly unworthies. Speaking of plump… Tuff❤️Tiff rocks the baby doll pretty darn good, too, boy howdy. Tuff❤️Tiff is, as they say, built for comfort, not for speed. Dumpster, however, is weak sauce but what did you expect? Seductive Ann❤️Eiffel’s costume? Forget it, lowly unworthies. You’re too lowly and unworthy. BUT… still to come at the party are Hawt❤️Stef and Sexy Tattoed❤️Toni is wearing a thong bikini to show off all her skin art. Be still, The❤️Count’s ❤️, boy howdy! So Halloween. The❤️Count’s very favoritest of holidays. The❤️Count ❤️s going out and Trick or Tricking on All Hallows Eve Nite, boy howdy. Why? Because The❤️Count doesn’t even have to wear a costume. And The❤️Count so ❤️s Candy Corn and those little Milky Ways. Sooooo… lowly unworthies… The❤️Count, Countess❤️ and Lulu❤️the Wonder Cat wish you all a very happy, safe and spooky Halloween :) TTFN and… Let’s Be Safe Out There. Count…OUT!
