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!

Despite the punch line of this strip, the ridiculous restrictions on women don’t end with the pregnancy. Even after giving birth, they still recommend women abstain from drinking because (SHOCK! HORROR!) some of the alcohol can actually transmit to the baby when breastfeeding. Of course, there are women I’ve known who use this to their advantage by getting all liquored up before a feeding and effectively knocking their wailing kid out for a few hours thanks to the sedative effects of the devil’s brew. I’m not saying I applaud their mothering skills, but I do admire their ingenuity in getting two servings from a single bottle.
The facial expression of the doctor in that last panel really makes this strip work. He’s just so insane. Coincidentally, I added the beloved doctor to the character list
on the site. I thought it only fair. I mean, he’s been in the comic more than a number of other listed characters, so I might as well give him official recognition.
