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!
I’m not sure this joke really works. I’m not sure that this strip is really anything other than an excuse to put Tracee in a ‘sexy nurse’ costume. (Hey, at least I’m honest.)

@godmoderncommander: Alas, even that is not enough to make the hospital experience an enjoyable one.
@gumby_dammit223: That's not an Apple product; that's a BAD Apple product. (You'll notice there's a worm coming out of the Apple.) Bad Apple: providing tech products to Satan and his minions since 1998!
@Grudgesettler: I'm always amazed at the widely held belief that Apple is a 'good' company.
@Michael Corley: Yeah, that's... Nah, I don't have a witty retort for that one. The possibilities are all just too disturbing.
@Hitokiri Akins: You are so very, very right. And I must admit that I had to scroll through pages and pages ... and pages of sexy nurse outfits on Google Images before I felt like properly understood the tao of sexy nurse. Now THAT'S hard work for you.
They Fired Their Boss ( or what ever you like to call it )
@gumby_dammit223: They even fired the guy who started the company in the first place. I'm pretty sure good isn't a word they like to use very often.
Isn't that his daughter's friend? How did that conversation go, "Hey, would you be willing to go do your sexy nurse routine for my daddy in the hospital to cheer him up? Thanks!" ? Asking your friend to do that has got to be at least a little awkward, even for her.
@Wolfman1000: Bad Apple is even worse, if you can imagine that.
@Lilyblack: I find it thoroughly fascinating that such weird visual cues remain intact in our culture for so long. For instance, prisoners in cartoon jails still wear black and white stripes, even though prisoners haven't worn that outfit since the Chaplin days. Heck, if might have been outdated then!
I think the red cross on the cap thing comes from WWII-era Red Cross nurses. They were pretty iconic and it just imprinted on pop culture.
@Marnath: I don't think Phoebe has anything to do with this whole sordid affair. She keeps a good distance from her father's wicked ways.
@Lilyblack: Well then, I'm being very accurate here because I'm pretty sure Tracee is NOT a trained nurse. In fact, the very concept of her being tied to the important field of healthcare gives me the chills.
