Male; I wasn't born in the South, but I got here as soon as I could.
I meant when they cease new strips. I forgot about Luann Againn
Would Tiff have to file a Home Energy Report for the window repair?
Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

Hold on there my friend. The traditional Al & Irma said no living together under our roof without marriage. Not such a “brutal” concept. Bets said she’s not ready for marriage (“Gun” was as you may recall). I thought they all left the situation in happy agreement. From days of old I was a fan of Gunther and Luann eventually getting together. But that ship has long ago sailed! Later, Gunther and Tiffany friend zoned each other; that ship undocked also.
Gunther was “given” Rosa as a consolation prize and both were written out of the strip. Luann and Tiffany moved on with new arcs. Greg decided Gunther needed to be brought back for some reason. Lo and behold the “perfect” Rosa relationship became untenable. Lu and Tiff all expressed mild infatuation with the “new” returned Gunther, but no relationships develop. Lu sets him up with a date service and Bets appears. I believe that she is a lock in Greg’s mind. The road has been rough in that relationship and mainly through Bets’ volatility and intransigence. It is not unreasonable to entertain the thought that the relationship may not last. Gunther has been very compliant to Bets, very much like he was with Luann in the early years. It is the most stable relationship among the unmarried’s.
Right now. IF and it’s a BIG IF, Gunther and Bets go their separate ways, I can only envision Gunther returning to Luann. And ONLY in the Out years, when the strip goes into syndication. Luann has been in the doldrums ever since she set Gunther up with the date service. She has also expressed a somewhat prurient interest in his relationship with Bets.
Then again. Who knows what’s in the minds of Greg and Karen? Not me.
I suppose that there is a way to look at this arc and see the hilarity (as 1212 often says) of it, but it is at a very surface level.
Problem is that most all of the commenters are long-time readers and fans. Thus we all have individual opinions of the characters and the events that brought then to this point.
Both Gunther and Les have history with Tiffany and have been able to hold a rational discussion with her. It is difficult, at this point, to understand why they are all quaking in their boots about reclaiming their space.
I mean really!? You’d think Tiff is the personification of Ann Eiffel, herself!
Pizza over Mama’s home cooked? No chance! 8^ )
Out here in Caliphoney Oh surely not! Looney Town can’t be that bad! Can it???
Panel 2: Gunther questions Bets description of his parents as annoying? Tiffany thought Al and Irma were delightful during her dinner with them and the boys.
Cracks in the Gun-Bets relationship developing?
