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 joke sprang from something my wife had said earlier in the month. She saw a shot of pregnant Puck and said, “You know that skirt would never stay up, right? Pregnant women really can’t wear skirts. They just fall right off.” It was an idea too good to pass up.
SUPPORT PUCK! PURCHASE THE NEW BEACH DAY WALLPAPER FOR A BUCK!!!
In an effort to raise some cold, hard cash for my evil-doings, I’m now selling some digital wallpaper and image downloads! To that end, I’ve created a supremely cool beach day wallpaper that features the whole gang hanging out at the seaside. And by ‘whole gang’, I mean WHOLE GANG! Even Sigmund and that Tracee chick from Howlers are in this one! It’s fun, it’s cute, it’s got swimsuits, and if you’re going to stare at anything on your desktop, it might as well be this. You get both a widescreen (1440 x 900) and standard ratio image (1600 x 1200).
In addition, all the old voting incentive pics are ALSO now available for download from the store. They come in bundles of five for one dollar. Five for a buck! Even Arby’s can beat that!
You can also get the beach day wallpaper AND all the incentives for a bulk discount price of $2.50! YAY!
Which reminds me...
We have to go shopping tomorrow and try to find some maternity clothes for a middle aged mother in a country where the majority of pregnant women are young enough to be her daughter and like to dress like teenaged floozies in skin tight tee shirts printed with horrible misspelled English.
I have to respectfully disagree with the comment that 'pregnant women can't wear skirts'.
I wore skirts and dresses through my entire pregnancy because I couldn't wear pants. I would amend the statement however to something like 'Pregnant women can't wear short skirts'. Reason being. A skirt is perfectly wearable if you place the tight waistband above the bump. Effectively transforming a knee-length into a short skirt and a full length into a knee length look.
Skirts worn in this fashion have the classical 'babydoll' look so popular in maternity clothing. Particularly when paired with a top that has been overly shortened by growth in the chest area paired with inability to stretch over the bump.
Added bonus. Frequent bathroom trips required by bladder-kicking baby are much easier with no fly to fuss with.
@Neff: Phoebe's definition of 'granny panties' is any underwear that's not lacy and thong-like.
@=^.^=: That IS a valid way to wear a skirt when pregnant. But it wouldn't really help Puck because she doesn't own any skirts that aren't minis. If she placed the waistband over the bump, her underwear would STILL be showing.
@MrTTAO: Those are stains. I was trying to simulate the look of undies that are really, really old from way at the back of the drawer. They've been washed, but they never actually manage to return to a state of whiteness.
