Well, after the last strip, people’s reactions to the big news were somewhat divided down gender lines. Most female readers expressed something along the line of “OMG! Puck pregnant? I’m so excited!” Many male readers, however, expressed something along the lines of “Dude, a baby? You’ve RUINED Puck forever! I hate you!”

I hereby try to reassure my male readers that I will endeavour to make the strip not suck from here on in.

As for this strip, I know that some people from non-English-speaking countries will be confused by the concept of root beer. Root beer is, as the name implies, a beer made from roots, but in North America, it’s sold as a non-alcoholic soda pop. Pretty much everyone who hasn’t grown up with root beer hates it upon first sip. I, however, love root beer. So does Colin.
