Storage space isn’t like selling ice cream or donuts. It’s not an impulse buy. You looks for storage places mostly when you move. Tiff needs to be advertising online and not with Ox shaking his booty
Bets is going to win this bet. Tiff is sadly clueless.
This contest is over before it ever began. Tiffany’s idea of gaining more business is strictly low-rent while Bets has the Gun-man!
Ox will do anything for Tiffany, and gets nothing in return. User
Of course, in the real world, Tiff would be quickly visited by the town’s Code Enforcement officer, since she has turned her home into a warehouse. Or maybe those panels are coming later this week.
Ox Shake it for your girl Tiff.
Okay, it’s now established that Gunther made Bets outfit.
No surprise there.
And Gunther did help Tiffany when he aided in moving that stuff to the waremanse in the first place.
Whelp, it won’t be long now.
Once Ox commences with the “booty shaking” and startled neighbors realize it’s not an earthquake, they should have the authorities over to shut Tiff’s Biz down real quick.
I hope Tiff enjoys being pushed around by roommate Stef next semester.
Tiff looks more matronly every day; one time it could’a , should’a been her shaking her booty out there. No more.. guess her classload doesn’t include gym…but hey, keep stackin dem boxes girl !
And the future drama when Stef finds out she was the loser’s prize ….
Funny AND Sad. Poor Ox.
Who can resist???
Tiffany, YOU need to don a brazillian bikini and spin that sign, shake YOUR money maker. Because trust me, you’ll get so much more attention than a twerking college quarterback.
So Bets trade will up from Gunther, but keep him around as a beta orbiter, making her costumes for free?
Sooo, Bets admits in a roundabout way that she is using Gunther.
If Tiff wants to really compete, then she needs to advertise…on the internet! Bet’s need not be the only one with huge exposure.
The board still shows a hand with 6 fingers. Kinda freaky.
It didn’t take long for the lolly pop and her errand boy to sweep in and mobilize their forces.
If she really wants to bring in the business, she should have turned to Les instead of Ox for the booty-shaking part. (Honestly it’s the one thing he’s actually good for.)
Just a reminder. Stefini exists solely to make Tiffany’s life miserable, just as Tiffany used to exist to make Luann’s life miserable. This means that Tiffany will not win the contest because Greg intends to continue to inflict pain on Tiffany through Stef. I’m don;t believe that Bets will win the contest either but Tiffany will not be shed of Stef. This despite the fact colleges have mechanisms to deal with incompatible roommates.
Bets is still bossing Gunther around. For an intelligent guy, he sure is clueless about what Bets is doing.
Are we seeing the old Tiffany emerge?
Didn’t like her from the start and disike her more and more. All Bets does is use other people. Poor Gunther.
Tiffany’s advertising WareManse Storage is gearing towards local, not national or international appeal. Having “actors” like Oxford is who regional supermarkets and automobile – and storage – businesses would use, which is not going to win this bet as it is configured, but might be useful for Tiffany in that she is developing a business sense.
Tiffany Farrell Mansion is a local business and Bets is a global business .
I can’t believe, I mean I’m incredulous, if people are still shipping Tiffany and Ox. He’s just Milhouse to her Lisa, only not as sharp as Milhouse.
Ox would do anything for Tiff—and it seems like she’s taking advantage of that fact.
Maybe she hasn’t changed as much as readers think—’tis a pity.
tiff is starting to look matronly
Panel 3: No area code?
And soon Tiffany will be facing fines for running a business in a non commercial zone, without a license, and a few other infractions that will undoubtedly cost her more money than her “business” will bring in.
Shake it, SHAKE IT!
You’re pointing at his… oh never mind.
Tiffany, I think you should be the one shaking your tail feather, not Ox. It’s more likely to draw the crowds.
Is it just me or is Gunther getting more handsome aka Brad.
oh this could be the start of something…
Has Tiff tried doing the math to how much storage she needs to do to make $2,000/month and what would happen if her father comes home early?
This is getting better and better. Now Ox is involved in the game! However, even using all of Ox’s charm, Tiffany is very unlikely to win.
Is this a shame the big guy strip? 8^ (
Bets looks better than Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, even if neither versions are comics-accurate. At least Bets has more than one facial expression….
Does Ox know what his “booty” is?
Poor Ox gets more than he axed, er asked for!
Tiffany is a marketing genius! /s
OMG! Gunther’s wearing a normal summer short-sleeved shirt!!!!!
Has no one mentioned she put her REAL mailbox and address on social media publicly?
In the mean time, Stef is still out of town and Kip is getting restless. What unsuspecting female will fall prey to his needs?
It is not cheating to use help. Bets often has Gunther in her videos. And he makes a lot of her costumes.
Storing a few things for friends is one thing. Storing large amounts of things for complete strangers is another.
I mean, it’s not a storage facility. It’s a house, so she’s basically just cramming stuff in wherever it will fit. There’s no climate control apart from the house’s AC and heating system and everything is mixed together, so if one client’s belongings has bedbugs, guess what, everybody’s stuff gets infested including the house! And how is she figuring cost since there are no individual storage units?
Not to mention liability insurance in case there’s a fire and the other peoples’ belongings are damaged or destroyed. Has she contacted Tom’s insurance company about this? I’d have to think it would change his policy rates, assuming they’d even allow this in the first place.
Here GnK exposed to the antitheses of couples. Bets-Gunther vs Tiffany-Ox.
Bets: sharp, energetic, savvy, glam, etc. Tiff: ditzy, plain, clueless, etc.
Gunther: brilliant, savvy, adept, energetic, etc. Oxford: slow, dependent, pining, etc.
Can this kind of dichotomy actually carry a strip on couple relationships???
He has no idea what she’s means???
I’m impressed that Gunther has a 3D printer.
Ox, the sign-spinner? That’s for payday advance places. Cheesy business strategy, Tiff.
OK I quit for the day! I have tried numerous times to leave a message here and have been told my message included words on their “banned list”. Almost all of us, at one time or other, has sworn up a blue streak here in this column. And my reply had NO swear words in it at all. So confusing!
Gunther looks like he borrowed a blouse from Bernice.
They’ve made some changes at…
…and I’m not sure it’s for the better.
It’s fun to try to predict what comes next in the wackiness of this hilarity ensues strip, but the context of the story here makes it a fun ride. Bets would seem to be winning the bet, for now, but what will happen with the unpredictability of this comic is hard to fathom. It should be clear, by the way, it should be clear that Tiff and Gunnie are close friends, no bf/gf material (guys and girls can be friends you know) while the intensity of Gun(ther) and Bets is clear. Ox? Well, if the big lug likes Tiff, why not? He just needs to let her know how he feels, but the poor guy is too shy.
Ox should change into his spandex first. Shake booty, then post
Bets is fast becoming a pushy pain in the rump. She needs to go.
All the signs point to Tiffany losing the bet. But I think something will happen to change things. Someone else may help her, no idea who.
To those who wanted to see Ox and Tiffany——well here they are. After a fashion.
R.I.P. Tony Dow, aka “Wally” from Leave It To Beaver . :-(
This arc stretches credulity. Even Tiffany would know that a 1950s approach to selling storage space is pretty ridiculous nowadays. Her waremanse biznis would need a website so people can find it, and book space, not a sign spinning Ox – an incredibly inefficient way to get customers.
tiff used the guys to move the stuff form the school to the warehouse
C’mon Tiff, you’re the business major. Making money is the American way.
I’m beginning to not like Bets.
He might turn Heaven into “Wally World”…
Tony Dow, who starred as Theodore “Beaver” Cleaver’s brother Wally on “Leave It To Beaver” has passed away, two months after being diagnosed with cancer, at the age of 77.
R. I. P. to a star of classic TV.
Oops, I refreshed the page, and I saw that Buckaroo Dave beat me to the obituary.
Can’t shake what he doesn’t have.
Tiffany doesn’t have any reason to call Bets out on being partners with Gunther. He’s been making their costumes ever since they started dating. I guess her “moving crew” doesn’t count?
Looks like Tiff is getting more zaftig by the day.
Tiff really needs to lose a few pounds….
That dress is very un-flattering to Tiffany. Makes her look like an old lady.
Well, there goes her vacation with her Dad. Once he finds out, she won’t be going away. And any money she earned will have to used to pay the fines.
Hopefully the syndicate doesn’t get into trouble for using what could be an in-use phone number. (Only 555-0100 through 555-0199 are “unused” now.)
Gunny and Bets, or Tiff and Oxford? Whose blog would I prefer to follow?
I’m with Tiff and Oxford. They are more interesting even if their blog is duller!
Oy. How long will this arc drag on? Because dueling business ventures are just so interesting.
I love Ox
