Pavlov must have known his fair share of redheads.

So the Puck timeline and our real-life timeline intersect (however briefly) and I’m enjoying the inclusion of some seasonal gags. As you can clearly see.

After viewing this comic, my wife has concluded that pregnant chicks should never, ever wear cable-knit sweaters. Ever. I personally think it’s kind of cute. Besides, Puck needs to wear outfits like this: outfits that solidify Puck’s title as the whitest white woman on the face of the planet.

New Voting Incentive! It’s Halloween … BATMAN-STYLE!!! A new costume EVERY WEEK!
Each week of October will bring with it a new Batman-themed costume on one member of the Puck gang. The second one’s up now, so VOTE! Oh, and make sure to vote every week in October to see them all!

@godmoderncommander: Mother Nature is the fieriest, deadliest, most unpredictable redhead of them all.

As a half-red half-brown and sibling to a full-blown red-head explosion, I completely relate to this comic.

High Schoolers
I just read through your FAQ and you mentioned you are a high school teacher now. Do your students know you make Puck and if they do, do they give you the metal sign for creating such and awesome peace of narrative?

Wenthral (Guest), October 16th, 2012, 1:36 am

Pregnant redhead at that.

@Riv: You poor soul. I'd get a helmet if I were you.

@Azreon: I would qualify Puck as a full-on redhead, though I suppose her hair could theoretically be described as auburn.

@Nickgreyink: I keep my Puck doings a carefully guarded secret. They have no clue. It's largely for the best. But I thank you for a vote of support.

@Wenthral: The most dangerous variety of all. And Mother Nature is ALWAYS fertile, so don't trust her either.

Puck is pretty white, whiter still with those stockings

ElectricGecko, your students would know by searching for your name; you signed the original run of Puck with your real name, after all.

But, what high school student is going to look up his teacher on the internet?

Oh, wow, I just realized that I am as old as the history teacher that during my first year of high school the year I had him, 12 years ago.

@Lilyblack: I wasn't thinking so much in terms of complexion as I was Puck being culturally white. There are few non-white people who would ever wear such an outfit. And if they did wear such a thing, they would qualify as being white in spirit.

@Hitokiri Akins: Well, it's not a carefully guarded secret, but it's guarded enough that it's never come up. As I've said in my FAQ, it's just insurance against the odd unreasonable parent who might be offended by my creations.

Besides, as you implied, most students do not care about (or even vaguely comprehend) their teachers' personal lives. As far as most students are concerned, teachers finish the school day, climb into their hermetically sealed bubbles at the back of the class, and then emerge fifteen minutes before class starts the next day. We are mindless teaching automatons to them.

But seriously, one of the alternate reasons why I don't talk about Puck in class is the fact that doing so would shift the class from focusing on the subject and the students' learning to focusing on me. Teachers should be, in my opinion, not teaching lessons about their own greatness. It should all be about the subject and the students, in my humble opinion.

Hitokiri Akins (Guest), October 17th, 2012, 7:45 pm

I agree completely; your students should be focusing on the subject at hand. Education is one of the most important things in the world, no matter what we think growing up.

And I was implying that Puck was an open secret to you; you won't bring it up, but I doubt you'll deny it if brought up, right?

ElectricGecko, October 17th, 2012, 8:03 pm

@Hitokiri Akins: I ... really don't know. If confronted, I would probably opt to distract the person and run away.

Danny (Guest), November 25th, 2012, 7:46 am

So they don't come into class and say "Good morning, Mister Gecko"?

ElectricGecko, November 25th, 2012, 12:23 pm

@Danny: Nah. Though to be honest, kids these days have bad memories for names, so they usually just indicate a greeting through grunting. It works.
