This strip is #4 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.

This one really split the population in two, kind of like pumpkin pie. (You either love it or you hate it; know what I mean? Man, do I hate pumpkin pie.) Some people thought this one was funny, some didn’t. I think some people just failed to ‘get’ it, and I don’t blame them. My sense of humour isn’t always an easily deciphered one.

I included the opening blurb in the title box to provide a little bit of clarity for those readers that didn’t remember what had happened in the previous strip. (They did run weekly, so I thought that people could sometimes use a refresher.)

Even ten (cough) years on, I still like panel four on this one. As a character, Puck was horribly difficult to get on model (I’m not sure why), yet I liked the fact that her face could pull off a wide variety of emotions. Also, I think her whole body language conveys the concept of agony quite well.

@pseudoname: Well, that would seriously change the nature of the strip.
