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!
My wife informed me that Puck looks absolutely horrid in this outfit. “Don’t get me wrong; it’s a cute dress,” she said. “But it’d only be cute if her boobs and her belly were a fraction of their current size.” I guess she has a point. That said, in my opinion, it’s sort of hard for any woman to look well-dressed in the final stages of pregnancy.
On other clothing fronts, it strikes me as absolutely criminal that Phoebe hasn’t worn anything leopard-printed until now. I had to right that horrible wrong.

I just rejoined this strip as I now have a new working computer. This story line reminds me of an incident that happened at a store I worked at. I had a brief encounter with unruly customers which I managed to resolve. Shortly afterwards I was outside talking to one of my female friends who happened to be pregnant at the time. She asked if I needed her help dealing with the unruly customers. I thanked her but told her that the situation was already taken care of. This woman has tremendous strength and used to work as a bouncer. She's also very loyal to her friends and husband (who happened to be in the store as well). However, I was glad I didn't have to make the decision as to whether to accept her help or try to talk her out of it. Regardless of the physique of the woman herself, I'm sure getting hit in the stomach area wouldn't have turned out very well for the baby inside her. I also feel it best to consider what I should do if I ever have a similar situation in the future. Whatever decision I made would have been difficult.
@Rainey: I once read an article that discussed a common male fear of the pregnant woman. I've certainly seen this in real life: men who are afraid of a very pregnant woman's ... pregnantness, their vulnerability, their 'could have a baby at any minute'ness. I don't really know. But I definitely would be a afraid of a large, muscular, pregnant bouncer chick who was threatening me. Now THAT'S fear.
