Five minutes after I finished this comic, my wife came home from the library with a copy of Downton Abbey, Season Two under her arm. I kid you not.

If you haven’t seen the new ‘Naughty Leprechaun’ voting incentive, well, do so! NOW!

Though this particular incentive pic isn’t available through voting on TWC anymore, you can purchase the pic from the store. It’s only a buck for a set of five voting incentives! That’s what I call a deal!

Know how I got these scars...

When the tulips didn't work...

*too obscure a reference?*

Bomb squads have florists on speed-dial for just this reason.

And stuffed fluffy animals. Jewelery also helps.

I think I am the first, and possibly only, girl commenting...Forget the DVD next time. If she's pissed get her favorite CHOCOLATE!!!!!

@darknoon: Too obscure a reference. For me, anyway.

@Mark: Flowers can solve all problems. Always. 90% of all world conflicts could have been avoided through the judicious application of flowers.

@Oz: Well, the key thing to avoiding danger as a man is the ability to know your woman. The girls who like tulips and Downton Abbey DO NOT like stuffed fluffy animals. Jewelery is a good call, but only if you have the money to get the real stuff. Crummy costume jewelery is dangerous.

@Half Moon: I assure you that you are not the only girl commenting. Over on dA, this strip has lots of comments, and I think that over fifty percent of them are from females. But your words are wise indeed: chocolate is always a safe bet with all women. Unless it's bad chocolate, which is the trap most men fall into. ("No, you fool! Not the econo-sized discount baking chocolate!")

Flowers for the win!
Smart man, very smart man. Knew he was in a bad situation and had the plan in place to come out alive and successful. Now Phoebe's good if she doesn't bring it up again later.

ElectricGecko, March 22nd, 2012, 2:09 pm

@c_arnold: Nah, Phoebe won't bring it up again. Puck is contractually obligated to become outraged once per story arc. I think twice would be beating a dead dog with a tired stick. Thus, Colin is safe - until he errs again. Which is inevitable.

Half Moon (Guest), March 22nd, 2012, 10:42 pm

lol yeah...only do baking chocolate if she likes baking A LOT! if not, then go Godiva...and don't look at the price tag.

I just grovel and then offer to do the dishes or rub her feet.

Maju (Guest), March 23rd, 2012, 8:17 pm

Telepathy exists
Telepathy exists then?

ElectricGecko, March 23rd, 2012, 10:45 pm

@Half Moon: If it's Swiss or Belgian, it's good to go!

@Caseyorourke: That solution requires that you are passably good at either doing the dishes or giving foot rubs. Colin sucks at both.

@Maju: ??? Telepathy what-a-who?

Maju (Guest), March 23rd, 2012, 11:17 pm

Telepathy because you wrote:

"Five minutes after I finished this comic, my wife came home from the library with a copy of Downton Abbey, Season Two under her arm. I kid you not".

Surely a coincidence, right?

ElectricGecko, March 24th, 2012, 12:34 pm

@Maju: Ah, now I get it. Nah, no telepathy. I just know my wife's tastes. And Puck is very similar to my wife in terms of tastes. So there's a synergy there.

Chocolate Stash
I have found out, through the years, that an ample supply of *Good* chocolate stashed away for emergencies, such as testosterone poisoned foolishness, is one of the very few smartest things a male can do to save or reduce the loss of his hide.

ElectricGecko, March 24th, 2012, 10:53 pm

@Taranach: Whoa. Somehow that feels like breaking the rules. I mean, part of the ritual of penance is the trip to that store you don't really want to go to in order to buy that thing you don't really want to spend your money on. But sidestepping that? You're like an evil genius!

Anonymoustache (Guest), March 26th, 2012, 1:36 pm

This might be overthinking things, especially since it was stated you weren't too sure about the humor of Puck's rage two comics back, but I think Puck doesn't care about boobies because it's one of the things she and Colin had in common. But she does mind Pheobe giving him a discount because it's providing a service she can't compete with. And legendary pranking aside, I'm rather sure Puck wasn't well known for sharing.

Of course, given her penchant for violent moods, flowers and such was still a good idea to still HAVE a spleen once she stops and thinks it through.

ElectricGecko, March 26th, 2012, 8:07 pm

@Anonymoustache: Point #1: You have the best name I've ever seen on this internet of ours. Point #2: NEVER think too hard when reading my stuff. Ever. It's sure to fall into pieces like a splendid, elaborate house of cards. Point #3: I think you're onto something with the free food/Phoebe/competition thing. Point #4: Your name is STILL awesome.

Fionn (Guest), September 8th, 2012, 7:15 pm

Sometimes video games work. I kid you not, I dated a woman like that.

ElectricGecko, September 8th, 2012, 8:02 pm

@Fionn: I've heard of such mythical women. Just like I've heard of those mythical straight men who love going to musical theater. If you ever capture one and can produce a live specimen, I'll believe it.
