Hilarious, those pesky facts
Noooooo!!! They’re still together!! What a travesty! lol
So who will Stef try to get the $600 from? I don’t see Tiff giving it to her anytime soon.
It does look like Kip is getting tired of her. A break-up could still be in the works.
I’ve heard Monstro gives out loans… But if you don’t pay him back on time, with interest, you’ll be swimming with the fishes! ;)
time on watch – 12:10.
Back in my college days I don’t remember anyone having a spare $600.
Now pardon me, there are some kids on my lawn…
Stefani sure has quite the ego. How is she even paying for her classes and dormitory rent and anything else if she asks Kip (and anyone else) for the money?
Why wasn’t she enterprising enough to save up $600 on her own?
Hang tough Kip!
I know this is a total coincidence (no way Evans could have known this was coming), but three days ago, a school principal was fired because an art class showed that dangerous statue of “David”, and the parents objected. Bring back Nil and B for an encore! (Even though I’m not a fan of B…)
Lend me = GIFT me, I assume.
When I was 9 years old, I saved up $600—gifts from relatives for my birthday and Christmas, and making and selling pot holders. I had my money in a bank account in my name, which had to be overseen by an adult because I was too young to have a bank account of my own. It was overseen by my mother. My mother took my $600 and used it to pay for a trip (for her) to the Grand Canyon. She never gave me my money back, (because children are so expensive to raise, and she was having to raise me.) Interestingly, in the sixty something years since she took my money, I have never been to the Grand Canyon, and I never will.
Sex might briefly come up. But to offer $600 in exchange for sex. That would make stef: yup, a prostitute. And i don’t think she wants that “title.” She acts like she wants to be treated with class, not like all she is good for is some @$$.
For heaven sake and our sanity, DROP HER! Sheesh, how is it you lasted this long. I can just hear her voice…
The only reason I could afford the materials to make the pot holders was because my grandmother supplied me with the materials. When my mother went to the Grand Canyon using my money, my grandmother was extremely angry. It made no difference to my mother, but it made a big difference to me. Thank God for my grandmother.
Kip – and I think most of us – are getting tired of this.
Yeah, I figured they weren’t breaking up. At least not yet.
Pah-lease!!! I thought he was dumping her. Geesh! ಠ︵ಠ
Hang tough Kip!!!
Kip, just dump her and go. Let her find another sucker to pay for her. You are the captain of the football team and surely there are a couple of your teammates who come from those 1 percenter families. Introduce Stef to them and get her off your back. They will thank you – she is pretty and and a perfect arm candy for their 1 percenter functions AND they have plenty of moola to spare, unlike yourself.
Stef you airhead-raise the money yourself!!!
Hello? Tik Tok. Sexy cheerleader outfits = $$$$$.
Time to tell her “Get a job and you can earn that in a couple weeks.”
Ok, so Stef needs some fairly serious coin ($600) and a high profile internet blogger and influencer, Bets, is her new roomie. Why do I think that Bets is going to end up helping Stef figure out a way to get that coin. I just hope it works out better than the McMansion Storage venture Bets helped Tiff start up last summer and that Gunther does not end up in the middle of the impending mess that will likely soon occur.
I guess Kip is not pulling down any NIL money like a lot of the college athletes are getting nowadays or at least he is smart enough not to share it with Stef.
Get a job at the Fuse ? Or sign a Loan Contract with Bets?
Have we ever seen Kip smile at Stef? He never seems all that excited around her.
Who is Stef going to try to “con” that 600 bucks out of now?
“Lend”… more like “give”…
One thing that the Evanses really seem to enjoy doing is to create characters who are very difficult to like, and then hanging onto that unpleasantness for as long as possible, making only minor steps forward in the characters over very long periods of time — usually in a one step forward, two steps back fashion. They allow their characters a tiny bit of positive development over a huge amount of time, then revert that back at a later date, all but negating any progress made. Self-improvement follows that glacial, stumbling process, and it takes what seems an eternity for characters to mature and better themselves, if they ever do. And now, they have honed that particular.skill to create….this ultra-annoying mess of s character. Well, I hope THEY’RE having fun, at least.
Seriously? $600 to enter a competition? That’s really a lot! Terrible that Stef can’t understand it. It seems clear to me that Stef will ask Bets to help her find the money in some way, maybe even Dez and Tiffany will be involved. Maybe she will start working at The Fuse? Or maybe she’ll do something crazy and her roommates will have to get her out of trouble. I’d rather prefer they leave her alone, but I don’t think they would.
Why does anybody hang out with Stef? She’s a shrill, demanding, whiny brat.
We move from the male manipulator to the female manipulator. Maybe Nil & Stef should hook up.
$600.00? Kip must not be cashing in on Name Image & Likeness, yet, to have that kind of money. He would never get re-imbursed the actual cash by Stefani. Re-payment would be in another form.
Hold the line, there Kip; hold the line.
Entry fee at $600? It’s not a cheerleading competition, it’s a con.
He is so done with her.
Tread carefully, Stef – you could lose that sugar dad – er, I mean, guy…
Oooooo.. the Count likes this bae, Stef… she most certainly has read and learned from out beloved Ann❤️Eiffel’s best seller “How to Win a Man and Drain His Wallet”. We all ❤️ Ann ❤️ Eiffel.
And, for this comic, a Tiff-Stef showdown sounds like a small-scale Godzilla vs. Megalon.
Wow, Kip is demonstrating manly traits of lines that should not be crossed! Keep saying “no” Kip. Also, send this self-obsessed woman to the curb and start focussing on more important things in life. Like your studies, your career and finding a serious woman that you can build a family with and who is worthy of devote your life to.
So who does she know who has six hundred dollars, as if we didn’t know?
Get a j-o – b!!!!
So I guess we need a character more spoiled and entitled than Tiffany to move the plots along now?
Lending money between lovers is always risky. I remember lending my ex$10,000 to help cover the down payment when she bought a new home. Even though she repaid me promptly, I felt that things had changed between us. Also, around the same time, we had looked at wedding rings in early December and that Christmas I had gotten her an iPad.
Ooooo, Kips getting sarcastic now. Now that the sex is old hat, his eyes are being opened.
The “John”, er… I mean The Kipster, has LEFT the building!
Wow! Asking to borrow $600 from her boyfriend rather than asking her parents or looking for a way to raise the money herself? That is pretty presumptuous of her. I can see why he’s about done with her. Looks like we’re in the breakup arc for this releationship.
I hope Kip realizes that if he marries her, this will be a daily conversation—not about Top Cheer, but anything and everything.
Kip’s learning. Must have be paying attention to those sessions the NFLPA conducts about the wise use of your money.
Is Kip from a wealthy family? I didn’t have an extra $600 when I was in college. I didn’t have an extra $10.
Here’s an idea: Go out and earn your OWN $ to make your dreams come true! It’ll mean more anyway. Stop being a leech.
Kip, turn and run…don’t stop.
So I ask out of genuine curiosity. Is Kip supposed to be Asian? I can’t figure it out
The motif on her sweater matches her mouth.
Asking a college student for $600!? GoFundMe? She could make money as an InstaHottie.
Maybe Monstro could collect in kind? Strip has been getting a little racy lately.
In the movie Die Hard , the thief Hans Gruber, is asked if the government will release some two-bit terrorists while he’s robbing the Nakatomi Plaza and his reply is “Who Cares?”
Ditto to this comic arc.
Tiffany will lend the money with a contract giving her all rights to Steff’s NIL until fully repaid.
That’s a lot of money for Kip, unless he’s a stockbroker
nice! Ol jabberjaw is pricing herself out of that relationship….mentally, emotionally, and monetarily!
Stef will "just borrow ;D " the money from Bets, finally having Bets and Dez get how insufferably selfish and out of line Stef is.
Oh, I wouldn’t have guessed.She wants money… I think we have a name for those girls.
Ya gotta wonder (since he’s obviously on to her) why he stays with her?
Take it out in trade!
Do either Kip or Stefi have a job? Why would Stef think Kip has an extra $600? He must have other choices for a girlfriend since he is an athlete. The other cheerleaders cannot all be as bad as Stefi.
I think Kip is about done with this ditz. It’s time to be moving on.
Too bad Stef treated Tiffany so poorly. Tiffany is someone who could actually get $600.
Oh, good grief, Kip. Run! Just Run!
her parents must have said no, so she is going to other people. remember when Tiffany needed money, she sold a bunch of her stuff. sell some of your stuff Stef.
Who is Monstro?
So it all comes down to money! Where oh where will Stef get her loan? I hear there’s a new loan shark in town named Ann Something. She’s giving Monstro a run for his money.
shes just going to ask Tiffany
Kip and Stef are done!
Don’t do it Kip!
$600? Like my mother said, never lend money to your friends. You might end up losing your money and your friend.
The Kip + Steffi relationship is already on thin ice and she wants $600? Maybe she should be asking her parents?
To her credit, she’s not asking for Kip’s folks to give her a room in their house for free (“because she’s gonna be homeless”), and the financial shortfall means his mom has to go back to work to keep the family afloat. Steffi is also not asking Kip’s parents to support her, feed her, add 25% to their household expenses in taking on another (freeloading) dependent.
Right now, Steffi > Berni
I have questions. Not being an expert on the subject, I submit them to the group:
1. $600 entry fee? Doesn’t that amount seem kinda… high? I mean, just to enter a competition where most of the performers involved will walk away with nothing to show for it? What’s the prize that justifies this fee?
2. Isn’t cheerleading a team event? Therefore shouldn’t the team itself have a way of raising funds, especially knowing how little disposable income a lot of college students have? Are they really just leaving it up to each team member to find their own means of paying the fee (which again, seems extremely high especially if each team member has to pay $600 individually.) So what’s the team’s plan of action if certain team members can’t afford the fee? Don’t their routines rely on everyone being there?
Lend – I don’t think she knows what that word means
Sorry for all of you who posted that yesterday was about a breakup. I thought it might take all week to find out what the issue was, so I’m glad we don’t have to wait. Does Kip have an extra $600 laying around? He doesn’t have NIL money as he’s from such a small school. He could be on a full-ride scholarship so could have the money. Should he lend, i.e. give it to her? No! Will she ask others? Yes. Maybe soft-hearted Ox will loan her the money.
I’ll give Steffi the $600 myself if she will move out of the strip.
Is Top Cheer a reality show? Why are students expected to pay $600?
HATE where this arc is heading.
The most unlikeable character is going to pressure a more likable character into “lending” her money the lender can’t afford to lose for the most insipid cause imaginable. The money won’t be repaid in a timely manner, causing much strife.
I crashed and burned yesterday in my prediction that she was asking to bunk with him. As usual it’s a fool’s errand to try to predict this strip, but this is interesting. Why not ask Bets,, her smart, marketing wise roommate to comes up with ideas to raise the money. There goes the old fool again. I don’t think this is breakup though. My sense of story is a little, not that much, better than ability to predict.
Tiff wants her boyfriend to give her $600.00? Has she lost her mind? Oh wait, I’m assuming she had a mind to lose. Don’t do it Kip.
She’ll be begging in Tiffany for money soon…
Oh, dear. Being a good lay can excuse a multitude of faults, but not quite all of them, and it appears that Steph has reached her bag limit.
A $600.00 entry fee.OkaY,who among our cast is rich enough to have $600.00 to give away?
I hope Tiffany’s passport is in order.And her speedboat.
I’m not sure why Kip is still with Stef. She’s lied to him and treats him shabbily. His attitude is wispy-washy. I’m never sure about him.As to the cheerleading, I thought it as a team sport with the whole team entering the competition. That’s why the have fund drives. She can’t win or lose on her own, so why else would she need the money?
Oh brother… Stuff a dollar bill in her mouth.
If that’s Stef’s dream, I would suggest she wake up, go back to sleep, and start a different dream.
OK, does anyone else think Kip and Piro are also related? They do look very similar.
Will Kip get a backbone? Or will he continue to get used by Stef?
Ask Joe Biden! He’s giving tax payer money away! He’ll sniff your hair for free if you ask in person!
Wouldn’t Moony Uni send participants?
Does Kip have a big NIL contract
She’ll probably try to hit up her friends. “If Tiff, Dez, and Bets each give me $200, that’ll do it!!”
And Bets will charge her interest at current market rates ;)
Penn and Teller can easily explain the $600 in a program I can’t mention by name.
Staph is a money and life-force sucking witch!
Ok, this is what all guys fear. The big ask. Once she got you hooked, you’re pretty much dead and belly up in the water. Good luck with that pal.
Just a couple of things I’ll mention. I think the contest is for individuals, not a cheerleader team of any sort. I don’t believe for a minute that Stef is interested in any kind of loan – she wants her entry fee paid for her. I’m very happy to see Kip standing up to her manipulative nonsense, and I hope he continues. Lastly, in the FWIW department, the phrase that usually applies to peole who get on the wrong side of the Mafia is “sleeping” with the fishes (not swimming, since the person is dead at the time, lol). My apologies if someone already mentioned these things – I haven’t read all the comments yet.
“Fraid Kip has got your number, Stef. In fact, by his disdainful remarks, he’s more than ready to move on: consider yourself dumped!
$600 IS “that much!”
Kip still wears a wrist-watch! I do recall the advice from my brother when I got my first watch. He suggested that I not wear it on my dominant hand because it would be more likely to get scuffed up and to get in the way when writing and doing other manual work. So I always wore/wear them on my other hand. (Havent worn one in quite some time, though. )
