Let’s just say this strip springs from the well of personal ultrasound experience and leave it at that.



So it's early July, and we're all in the mood for flag-waving, so I thought it was time to celebrate the birth of everyone's favorite country with a little bit of patriotic cheesecake! Courtesy of Phoebe!

Prophetic tidings
A little out of sync with the story line, but......Yahoo just posted a story on how Hooters clones are really up and coming just now. Pheobe is on the cutting edge in the "Breastaurant" scene!

@godmoderncommander: Fear not. Nothing bad ever happens in fictional pregnancies in a comedy. As opposed to fictional pregnancies in a sci-fi or horror story, where the baby ALWAYS ends up being an alien or a devil or something.

@Tastria: Breataurant. Heh. But that's funny, because I've heard that the breastaurant scene is actually in financial trouble. Maybe it's a bit ... over-expanded? (Da dum dum TISH!)

Two heads...
That is called a boy. lol

B or G?????
Chinese doctors are not allowed to tell parents the gender of the baby, but some make exceptions for foreign parents because we aren't subject to the "One Child Policy" and we less fixated on must be having a boy. That being said, at the 18 week checkup, we still don't know if its a boy or a girl because the area that tells was hidden but the blood tests came back as normal.

@Flargon: You know what? I didn't even see that joke coming.

@Caseyorourke: Ah, the gender. Well, they told us the gender for both my kids, and in both cases they were right, but I know of enough cases where the predictions were wrong. After the parents have already decked the whole nursery out in pink or something.

As for Puck, she will adhere to the rule of all comic fictional pregnancies which states that the parent cannot determine gender before birth. Why? Because the writer is throwing away a vital element of suspense that could happily be kept in pocket for longer!

Hermaphrodism is always a surprise!

Also, the technician has Phoebe's looking over her glasses expression. In further comic tradition, there are no coincidences, there's some kinda link there!

ElectricGecko, June 28th, 2012, 8:00 am

@darknoon: There's actually no connection between the tech's over-the-glasses expression and Phoebe's over-the-glasses expression. The parallel springs more from my inability to properly differentiate characters.

Also, I have a major thing for glasses, but they're awfully difficult to draw. Eyes are always a pain, and glasses in front of them make the whole situation nightmarish. I solve this by sliding the glasses down the nose - which, coincidentally, means that the glasses are largely useless. Unless they're reading glasses.

I actually think Phoebe's glasses are a fashion accessory only. That's why she sometimes doesn't wear them.

Came over here from the AFTERDEAD (Webcomicsnation) page you posted the Project Wonderful ad on. This is a classy strip; thanks for letting my readers know!

ElectricGecko, June 29th, 2012, 8:18 pm

@Donna Barr: Wow. That is perhaps the first time I think my comic has ever been called 'classy'. It's been called 'tasteless', 'crass' and 'just plain bad', but I've never gotten 'classy' before. I thank you for that.

from yor DA friend Cold Day in Hades, I just found out that my ex-bosses are expecting #6!

Donna Barr (Guest), June 30th, 2012, 11:53 am

The truth is always classy. And funnier than hell. "Blink your left eye" is ELEGANT (in an argument kinda way).

I kind of thought Phoebe's glasses were actually how her character disrupts the preconception. Like, sure, she wears sexy outfits, but she wears her glasses too - she's not trying to fit a mould - as much as her bosoms are out there cause that's what she wants to do, whatever else she wants to do is out there. And being able to read stuff well is what she wants to do and so it's there with everything else. Any mould it doesn't fit isn't even on her radar.

Hey, don't look at me like I thought too much about it - you spend far more time drawing the thing! >:)

But hey, even if she's short sighted, whether it's an accessory is something we'd have to ask Phoebe, I guess! I'm just guessing the character.

ElectricGecko, July 1st, 2012, 8:10 am

@Donna Barr: You're too kind. And now I've got another first: classy AND elegant! Boy, you have good taste!

@darknoon: the essence of Phoebe's character is doing whatever the hell she feels like. That was my central concept when designing her original outfit. Who wears glasses, an orange feather boa and a wristwatch on her upper arm? Someone who totally disregards society's messages about, well, everything.

Takes one to know one. You're buying my ads, after all. :D
