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.

July Voting Incentive NOW UP!!!

It’s July, and that means Puck’s pulling out ALL the stops by giving you a voting incentive that has everything you ever wanted! And when we say everything, we mean EVERYTHING!



I realized that I’d really fallen down on the whole incentive availability thing in the store. People have been making a rather large number of purchases made lately, and none of the voting incentives from November of last year onward were available. Shame on me! I’ve made all of those pics (14 in all!) now available for two bucks. Or you can get all the pics for a fiver. (The money, by the way, all goes to the comic to pay for hosting costs, advertising and the like. I promise you that I don’t buy KFC with it. Most of the time.)
