You have to be really rich to have pictures of your children printed on greenbacks.
Oooo.. A Tiffany Arc!
Sergio Aragonés? ✨
What an open-ended beginning. I wonder where this is going?
Not sure I’ve seen this Mr. A; seems like a jolly fellow.
Is he the Monopoly guy? He shouldn’t just give her money, what about houses and hotels? Maybe he could enter her in a beauty contest.
Why do I get the feeling that Mr. A may be Greg’s illustration of one of the commentators?
Mr. A comes across as kinda smarmy. Trying to impress her by handing her her tip? Shields up folks! Tiffany doesn’t need any more grief, although that’s what she’s been getting for awhile.
How sweet. Tiffany has become good with people. She has grown so much since high school. Sometimes she takes a step backwards, but then she moves forward. Maybe some of it is to get tips, but I don’t think that is all the reason she is nice to people. I think it has become automatically from the heart.
I wonder what Greg is trying to pull off here???
How Sweet of Tiffany.
Tiff really sure knows how to hustle for tips! ;D
My grandmother was Ruby. Her younger sisters were Opal and Pearl. Her father called them his little jewels.
So it seems our Tiffany is a good server in spite of being the rich girl from the mansion with staff. She is learning a real-life skill. I believe cutting her allowance is a blessing in disguise.
You are a hard worker Tiffany, you will go far in life!
So, I’ve noticed this trend of sorts that seems to be popular among today’s younger generations, in that they address older people by whatever the first letter of their last name is, such as “Mr. A.” in this case.
Can’t go wrong with a Tiffany story.
Or CAN We?
Wonder what other (A-HEM) “opportunities” await Tiffany this arc? ;-]
Tiffany was named for a jeweler!
Tiff deserves some quiet time, after the mess with her roommate & her stud boyfriend!!!
I notice, once again, that the men in this strip almost always have their collars buttoned to the top. But, my first impression is that this smiling old coot, with the pony tail, is testing the waters with Tiffany. I think he’d like a private showing from his favorite waitress.
Yay! Tiff’s in the house! LOL!
What does this moment have to do with the series on this comic?
Careful, Tiff – Sergio might find some time to pencil you in.
What a shame – G & K had to ditch Luann and get back to Tiffany to show personal growth. Bern couldn’t fuel much action with Luann – they should have given Tara a shot at it.
Looks like a TJ
Aww, that’s sweet!!
Maybe there’s hope for Tiffany after all.
Wikipedia says Mr Aragones has drawn more comics on restaurant napkins then most cartoonist have drawn in there careers .
Oh! The great Sergio Aragones ♡! It’s not the first time Greg Evans has paid him a tribute, but making him a character in the strip is totally unexpected and totally awesome! It’s nice to see how Tiffany is a good waiter, she takes care of the consumers and is appreciated by them. So nice ♡.
Yay a Tiffany story
Wow, Tiffany can be nice? Shocking!
Okay, shut up. That’s too cute!
I normally read my daily comics on Arcamax because GoComics doesn’t carry a couple of my favorites. However, if something piques my interest, I always come back here for the comments. Thank you everybody who let me know about Sergio Aragones! The commenters over there didn’t have a clue.
Is this sweet or creepy?
Awww. It’s nice to see that Tiffany has one adult figure in her life who is nice to her.
Is amber a gem?
As long as he doesn’t start to suggest other ways she can earn her tips.
Tiff reminds me of our church music director. She has a degree in music, but prefers to keep working at her restaurant job.
Well, the Luann arc of the Luann comic strip ended on a fairly upbeat note, and now the non-Luann arc of the Luann comic strip begins on a fairly upbeat note. I wonder how long it’ll be before the excrement makes contact with the mechanical air circulating device.
The ‘man bun’ adds a certain creepiness to his tip offering.
What did Tiff slip into this guys drink?
I never served Sergio Aragones a meal, but I have my own memories. When I was sharing a table with him at a comic con, he inspired me to get a rolling suitcase to carry myself stuff, instead of a hand truck and cardboard boxes. At an earlier con. when I was still using the hand truck and boxes, Sergio stopped to help me pick things up when it all tipped dover and spilled. He did a nice drawing for me of himself drawing my character Patty-Cake. It was in a sketchbook that got destroyed in a basement flood. I must have photocopied it and used it in an issue of my comic. I can’t remember now.
And after I’d only been in the business for a year, I was up against him for the Eisner (best humor publication.) I didn’t care that he won- of course he did. I was so excited to be taken seriously enough to be nominated against a giant.
And, we take a break (or, just plain leave,) Luann still in future career crisis, and, move on to Tiffany interacting nicely with a customer at the Fuze. Where will this storyline lead?
Tiffany’s new name: Diamond
a good server she remembers the clients.
I like this version of Tiffany.
And a good Monday morning to you, Greg!
Tiffany is slowly yet surely developing into a mature young woman with her head settling firmly on her shoulders. Nice to see the character development here (in more ways than one)! :D
Back to Tiff I see. Nice that it doesn’t involve her roommates.
Let me get this straight. Today, Tiffany looks pleasant and attractive, with makeup. Yesterday, Luann looked like a tart for wearing makeup.
Thanks to all who recognized Sergio Aragones. I may not know him, but really enjoyed Spy vs Spy and the Marginal Thinking in Mad magazines. Nice tribute.
Oooooh, do we have a budding January-December romance?
Tiffany isn’t a gem.. she’s the place you buy gems from.
Concern and caring always pays, sometimes even with money…..
I like this Tiffany.
Today’s sudden transition seems to confirm that the last few weeks were another throwaway arc where nothing really changed and no characters actually experienced development. Or does someone here think Bernice is gonna change her major to pre-law?
Oh wait no, we got to see Margo Phelps again! Except we already got to see her as Tiffany’s therapist, and it already covered the story beat of “no matter what form of counseling she’s doing, she’s kinda bad at it.” Feels like the only thing the arc accomplished was to tell us what Mr Fogarty has been doing since retirement. But other than his creator gREg, did anyone actually care in the first place? He was never a particularly well-rounded character, after all.
Still, at least we get to see Tiffany again today. Hopefully she doesn’t get dumped all over. And now we have Epic Mustache Dude.
Hell of a tip before the bill even arrives, what is he expecting?
I like this little relationship. It shows Tiffany legitimately cares for people!
Men with ponytails serve a purpose. They make the rest of us look good.
Tiffany has gradually become sorta likeable. I hope this arc doesn’t spoil that.
It’s always a good week when Tiff in the house.
Reading about the distinguished Spanish gentleman, Sergio Aragones, depicted in these panels was very interesting and intriguing. Quite an icon. Tiffany arc, showing her being very unselfishly polite and certain of herself. Does this portend go news for her for a change? I like she still is working as a server, supporting herself.
So, on to Tiffany today? That’s nice. I stayed away for a week or so because I get really, REALLY tired of watching G&K beat the same poor old dead horse over and over. What I mean is:
G&K—-“Luann is so stupid. See how stupid Luann is? Luann is just so incredibly stupid. Luann is too stupid for words.”
I’m sure it thrills the hearts of all the Luann haters here to know that G&K’s hatred of Luann far exceeds their own, but I find it incredibly tedious and tiresome, which is why I stayed away. I mean, we get it, OK? G&K hate, detest, and otherwise despise the Luann character. Luann will never be allowed to b anything but their permanent whipping girl/punching bag. I find that extremely pathetic and sad myself, but that’s just me.
That looks like it might be a $5 tip, that’s a good tip at lunch time.
You know what makes Tiffany a better character than Bernice? She actually LEARNS and EVOLVES! The High School Tiff would never act like this.
So, the next one would be named Jade?
Be with us tomorrow,when Don Martin shows us what he thinks of Ann Eiffel.
The family across the street had four daughters.Hazel ,Emerald (Emmy), Ruby, and Pearl (my third grade teacher *)…I, recently sold the sold the old Family place, after seventy four years…Where I was born… ..that’s where they brought me “home”…from the hospital..Eight miles away..Their spirits still linger in the old neighborhood….Could write a great script for a T.V. series…Nobody seems to Know anything about us kids born in “44”…
Seems like Tiff is pretty good at her job.
Who is this girl and what has she done with Tiffany?
Good to make others happy.
Sometimes they make you happy in return.
The answer to the eternal question of Where Is Pitts Exactly may have been hinted at today.
Sergio Aragones, according to sergioaragones.com, lives and works in Ojai, CA, in Ventura County, northwest of LA.
If he’s a regular at the Fuse (“your usual” and Tiff knows a lot about his family), Ojai must be quite near Pitts. Thus, just as if you have a near-death experience, Death must have a near-you experience (thanks, Terry Pratchett), Pitts must be quite near Ojai.
I wonder if Tiffany would consider a new Hairstyle? Look what it did for Luann.
Having learned what pays, Tiff has developed people skills.
Mr. A does look like the guy from Monopoly. Thus the big money tip. Probably all intentional by G Evans.
Tiffany is coming along nicely in her job at the Fuse. Good for her.
Awww. That’s sweet.
At this point I’m taking the cartoon at face value; I’m not yet ready to question the Tiffster’s motives….
If that is Rosa’s grandfather – could Gunther be the father of either: Ruby Opal or Amber? Just Kidding!!
" Cartooning is state of mind.." Sergio Aragonés
Sergio Aragonés lives in Ojai, California. He is 84 years old.
I have to admit, I have a personal foible about the term “grandbaby”. I hate it. There are already “grandson”, granddaughter" and “grandchild” in the language. Why hickify it?
