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 #71 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran weekly for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.
This one marks the beginning of the “Phoebe’s Boyfriend” saga, which contains a number of funny gags, this one included. More gender-based humour here, but all too true. What is viewed as a travesty by one half of the population is also viewed as a holy blessing by the other. And it’s not just commitment-free sex, either. The same goes for other things too: football, Bud Light, the Three Stooges. (I’ll willingly admit that I’m a Stoogeophile. I’m not ashamed! Okay, well, maybe a little.)
My favourite image here is Phoebe’s unimpressed face in the last panel. I don’t know why, but I like that one.
