This strip is #19 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.

Just a little bit of social commentary in this one. I always find it funny how even the most educated and empowered women often force themselves into restrictive concepts of femininity when they feel that society demands it. And what better time to restrict yourself than on a date?

‘Going Dutch’, for those of you who aren’t native English speakers, is a figure of speech meaning a couple will split the cost of the bill in half. It’s one of those ‘politically incorrect’ terms: a rather blatant poke at the spectacular cheapness of the Dutch, which is second only to the spectacular cheapness of the Scots.

I am Dutch, and even I laughed at this.

I always make the chick pay....I mean if she's going to drink like a man work man jobs and bitch if I open the door or her why not save a few bucks?

@Ferguson: I think any man who holds your perspective and is successful in the dating world must be extraordinarily attractive to compensate for his spectacular cheapness.
