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!
The new Puck voting incentive pic is now up! Vote for Puck on TWC in order to see charismatic Canadian comic character Puck … NAKED! By popular demand! A word of caution, though: once you see this image, you can’t unsee it. Is your mind mature enough to handle it?
@Nobi Wan Kenobi: You likely qualify as one of the few people who got that shirt. I'm glad to know someone did.
@baloneyjuice: Well, I tried to deliver, but I think that the Puck featured here is physically incapable of being pregnant. I HOPE so, anyway.
@Azrael: I'm glad to know that some people can recognize a good Puck when the see one. From some of the reactions I've received regarding this voting incentive, it appears I've seriously overestimated people's familiarity with third-tier Marvel superheroes.
@D.Durand: When in doubt, always assume that you will be had. Except, of course, on those rare occasions when I deliver the promised goods.
@Rainey: That never stops people (particularly women) from making ridiculous assumptions about the actions and preferences of babies in utero. Don't know what that's about, but it seems to make them happy.
It could be a happy dance. Doctors ordered my mother to drink banana marshmallow milkshakes (delicious but almost no one has both flavors and therefore can't mix them). when she was pregnant because they regulated my otherwise irregular heartbeat. You never know what bizarre effect comfort food will have. Great, now I'm craving a milkshake that can't be bought anywhere around where I live.
@Marduk: Dang! Banana and marshmallow milkshakes? Where do I get me some of that? I think I feel an irregular heartbeat coming on...
@Applejuice: Your 'sounds like Ke$ha' issue is not a big problem for me, seeing as I only vaguely know who Ke$ha is. I know this much: she can't spell her name right.
@Luis: Old incentives from June and before are available for purchase (for nominal amounts of money) in the store. As for the Batman pics, I'm going to be collecting a new bundle that includes those and it will be in the store within the week. Stay tuned!
@Lilyblack: Everyone tells pregnant women to avoid everything. The funny thing is that various world cultures can't agree. The French, according to my wife, believe a good mother consumes red wine because it's good for baby and avoids fresh vegetables because they're somehow harmful. Take that, AMA recommendations!
@MrTTAO: The baby shall have its vengeance after birth. You'll see!
@D.Durand: Well, my info is a few decades old, and might have also been altered by my own brain to be thoroughly inaccurate. But I do know your country's love of fresh, bloody meat. That's what turned my wife into the vegetarian she is today.
@darknoon: Daphne's t-shirt wardrobe is as extensive as Phoebe's wardrobe. They both have handy warp zones at the back of their closets allowing them to travel to alternate clothing-filled dimensions. Come to think of it, Puck seldom wears the same outfit twice. They must all spend most of their money on clothes.
If you find one let me know cause that stuff is more addictive than crack and I need a fix. I can't find any place that carries both flavors, in fact I'm having trouble finding anywhere that still has marshmallow shakes. Even Cold Stone Creamery which has a birthday cake batter ice cream doesn't have marshmallow shakes. You may be forced to make your own.
@Marduk: Wouldn't be that hard to make, I'd say. Buy some of that gross marshmallow spread, get a banana, some ice cream, some milk, and (if you want to be really authentic, a raw egg, which all good milkshakes should include), and you're set.
@Riv: What you talkin bout, Willis? Coffee is my god! I regularly drink a litre of the stuff by noon. (I'm not exaggerating either.) It's delicious, and so very good for you, and ... hold on, I gotta pee.
@Riv actually, you might want to check out the more recent studies. Lately they've been noticing a lower affliction rate of Alzheimer's, aphasia and a multitude of other mental issues amongst older people who drink a moderate (2-4 cups a day) amount of coffee. Only time will tell if they can figure out what the link is or rule it out as anecdotal, but for now I am keeping my fingers crossed that one of the few pleasures in my life might also be medically beneficial!
As for the taste - sounds like you just haven't found the right brew. Bitter? Sounds like you had a dark roast - try a light one. Breakfast blend is my personal favorite, though I do like a dark roast once in a while. Also forget the public shops, they mean you have to trust how they care for the equipment. Find someone who drinks coffee and cleans their pot regularly, also use freshly filtered water (I use a filter right on my sink tap!) as you would not believe the difference it makes in the taste.
Plus, I always use flavored creamers. Hence why I look forward to this holiday season - it's when the pumpkin spice and egg nog creamers are back on the shelf. :D
@GreyWolf: I support your perspective! Though I must say, I scoff at the whole concept of finding the right brew. Coffee doesn't require fancy-shmansy alchemy. Coffee requires coffee beans, and lots of them! If it tastes awful, too bad! You just need to drink more and kill those sensitive taste buds!
I only drink awful, low-grade trucker coffee, and I refuse to drink fancy Starbucks-type mocha-choco-lattes on principle. I often take it black. There is no joy in my coffee-drinking experience, but I don't drink it for the joy. I drink it ... for the coffee.
