So this is Phoebe’s first time wearing her Howlers uniform (using that word ‘uniform’ in the broadest of senses) within the context of the actual strip. Some of you may recall this outfit from a skyscraper ad I did a while back. It is what it is.

My wife looked at the strip and scoffed. “Don’t blame me!” I replied. “The outfit’s modelled on the real-life equivalent outfit. I had nothing to do with the design.”

“But you chose to make Phoebe work at Howlers,” she noted. “You could have made her be a mechanic or an interior decorator, but you didn’t. And in that way, you’re totally to blame for this. You’re always trying to deflect the blame when it’s entirely your fault.”

She’s right, of course. I’m to blame for this, I guess. It comes with being a guy. We’re in the wrong so often, and we’re not even smart enough to argue our way out.

Yes Christmas is over, but there’s still time to check out the naughty yet nice Puck pic that’s the voting incentive on TWC. The title is “When I think about you, I touch my elf.” If you haven’t seen it yet, you can’t say you aren’t curious.

Though this particular incentive pic isn’t available through voting on TWC anymore, you can purchase the pic from the STORE! It’s only a buck for a set of five voting incentives! That’s what I call a deal!
