Wait, Stef is turning her down, too? But we all thought Tiff would be stuck with her. What a surprise!
Dodged a bullet there Tif.
That’s a lot of yammering for nothing.
Methinks, she doth protest too much! 8^ )
Well that’s a bullet that has been dodged. But the field is narrowing rapidly. With Stef out of the way, YAM-ing it up as it were, there is a small but distinct possibility that Kippy boy will step in and (over the summer) fill the bill. Yet, somehow, that just doesn’t seem like Tiffany’ style! Remember, in her own words: “I’m a tease, … not a sleaze.”
The Yam Festival Queen. Stef is going judge for the winner. Where is the Yam Festival?
Why is she the judge of the Miss Yam pageant? Because her self-awareness quotient is about the same as a yam?
I was going to say IQ, which would make more sense, but was too mean,even by my low standards.
BTW! I haven’t seen Airman for, what seems, several months. Anyone have any info? I always looked forward to his unique take.
Whew! Such a relief. (No, I’m not speaking for Tiff.)
So far, so good. Two losers eliminated, and Dez is off to some rain forest to help the natives make umbrellas. It would be a kick to see Crystal and Knute drop by, and stay for a few days just to help out until the new security system is ready.
Again with the “shoog”. Stef annoys me big time.
Maybe Kip is in need of a place to stay
Good! It won’t be Stef!
Could Ox really happen??? o-:
Hey, Stefi is trying to be nice!
I’d like to see Luann move in with her. Maybe, after all this time, they could become real friends.
She’ll need to Kip herself busy so she won’t think about mansion break-ins.
This got silly. We should have followed Bets home instead of Tiffany.
Two days ago, Jun 6, 3rd panel, Tiff showing some curves. Today, 1st panel, Stef walks in and Tiff looks like she’s ready for truck driving school.
Tiff you are better off but she might have Kip to play with.
you got that right Tiff; i’m afraid Steffie has a point this time. you and the mansion can’t compete with family, community and summer town traditions. it also can’t compete with international relief projects (planned in advance) and it can’t compete with love. hmmm….everyone has a plan and something to look forward to for the summer. what’s your plan Tiff?
Seeing Tiff and Stef today I’m struck by how much collagen each has had injected into their lips. They could be sisters under the needle.
It figures: I always knew Stef was a “potato head”!!
Phew….dodged a bull…er, cannonball there. (Let’s be honest, Steff is THAT destructive)
“Oh, no problem, Stef. I already asked Kip and he said YES! Isn’t that great? Stef? STEF?” – Tiffany
Love Tiff’s expression in the last panel.
Stef: ‘I yam what I yam’
As the former Miss Chamber of Commerce, Tiffany knows all too well how important goofy made up titles are for the ego. And how devastated Tiffany was with being stripped of the title.
Tiffany is so happy right now that there is a Miss Yam Pageant. Even with her fear, it’s better to be alone than with Stef. Also, we finally see something good about Stef, she loves her family. Probably her relationship with her parents is something Tiffany can only dream of having. Now, who’s the next person Tiffany invites? Ox seems perfect, but I don’t think she wants to give him that kind of hope. Les is still a possibility (and Gunther too), maybe even Crystal, if the never-sayd motivation for them to stop seeing each other weren’t too serious. Kip would be interesting. But the possibility of her inviting Luann is the best of the best.
What about Kippie? That could be interesting……
Miss Yam? More like Miss Prickly Pear.
Wow, Stefanie has a task with some responsibility?
Kip should still be available!
Don’t act too disappointed, or you’ll be stuck with her at another time… like when her fam gets tired of her and throws her out.
Prediction: Miss Yam Pageant cancelled, Stef shows up at the mansion with her bags. Tif as much as left the door open.
What about Ox?
It seems Tiff has decided she doesn’t want a mansion mate. Even better that Steph isn’t interested. Ok. Now what? Has she decided to go see her father? I can’t see her going to the gulag, no one there she loves. She likes Ox, and depends on him a lot, but love?
someone may have said this, but does it seem like Stef is rubbing it in on purpose with the whole “fam” thing?
Maybe Kip can volunteer to be a roommate
Now, the grand entree ….. cue: KIP.
95% of the world’s Yams are grown in Africa. Anything grown in the U.S. is a sweet potato and not related to a yam. Unless Stefi is going to Sub-Saharan Africa, she will be judging Sweet Potatoes.
Surely Stef is the best person to choose a beautiful root vegetable out of a crowd.
i’m going to go out on a limb and predict that Tiff may end up going home and enjoying the peace and quiet after all.
Tiffany seems to be desperate for a (female) housemate for the summer, but won’t stoop as low as Steff.
I am what I yam and that’s all that I yam.
My beloved Tiffany holds up well to the crushing disappointment.
That’s one way to avoid getting a freeloader in your house.
Maybe she will decide to get a dog for protection and bring home a Yorkie because it’s cute. They certainly tend to bark enough to scare of some intruders. Actually I am surprised that someone who owns a nearly empty “mansion” doesn’t have a second home in the country or on a lake or island some place.
Not in the least. Especially not with those mini marshmallows.
Nice! A narcissistic jab at Tiff about family and everyone is saying ‘at least she loves her family.’ NO. She’s rubbing it in that Tiffany is alone.
“Sugar,” shortened becomes “Shoog.” I understand, “Suug,” or, “Sug,” just wouldn’t be pronounced correctly.
Can’t compete with yams…
PHEW!!! We are ALL crushed, shoog.
Miss Yam winner. That’s one for the resume.
Well, there’s still Kip.
We are being set up for the arc’s finish — someone will approach Stef – “I hear you’re looking for a roommate, I need a place to crash for the summer”. Who could it be, I wonder, I wonder — could it be SATAN?
Doesn’t stand a chance against Miss Sweet Potato
WHEW! But…I’d love to see how you dodge if she were to say she wants to move in with you. Would you have been polite and decline, rude and decline, laughing in her face, or lied to her face about needing a manse-mate?
“I yam what I yam” (Popie 1956)
Tif culd have a reunion of old charcters at the manse. Knute, Chrystal, the fogarty’s, Ellwood, Dirk, Delta, Aaron Hill, the Aussie guy, Rosa, Pru, Miguel, Stuart, Ben, Calvin an Hobbs. No Ann Iffel. She aint allowed there any more.
Tiff isn’t sorry.
Why do I think this seemingly innocent interaction is going to boomerang on Tiff?
Tell me you are upset about not being asked without actually telling me.
She’s disqualified herself.
There IS a God!!
Does that mean Kip will be available? Ox would be a better choice in my opinion. Plus, he crushes big time on Tiff.
And after a brilliant performance as Miss Yam, Steff will be held over for Miss Okra
She’s run out of roomies. Time to call Luann and Berniece!!!!!
“I heard you need help. Well, I’m not gonna help you” is a totally normal thing to say, especially as an opening to a conversation.
I wonder how Delta James is doing over at Howard U.?
At least something went right for her.
That leaves Luann.
Never before has Tiffany been so happy about being so disappointed.
“It’s Yam-mer Time!”
“Now That You Mansion It…”
“Here Come De Judge!”
Stef turning Tiffany down preemptively? Hallelujah.
Wow. Seriously threatened and suddenly ssved, all in three short panels.
Count yourself lucky, Shoog, and hope this sticks, with no change of mind….
Stef has an interesting fixation on Marion Knight……
Is it that hard to just tell Stef ‘no’?
