Puck originally started as a university newspaper comic way back in the prehistoric days of 1998. It was reborn in 2011, and is now running weekly, in color. You can see the original run of eighty strips AND the new colour strips all here!
This strip is #32 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran weekly for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.
Oh Phoebe: how adorably infuriating you are. This (along with the button-fly jeans) is yet another example of the girl’s penchant for all things early 90’s in nature. For those who don’t know (because the reference IS a little dated), the last panel is a play on C+C Music Factory, the band who performed ‘Gonna Make You Sweat’ (better known as ‘Everybody Dance Now’). You know the song, I guarantee. I wish I could hum it to you. The band was fundamentally twitty, just like Phoebe.
Like most allusive jokes, if you don’t get the reference, you probably won’t find it very funny. Oh well.
