This strip was one of the ‘summertime’ strips that appeared in the infrequent monthly summer issues of the Silhouette. (I always tried to keep the strips vaguely seasonal.) I knew I wouldn’t be able to top Phoebe’s thong from strip 27, but I didn’t want to disappoint on her summer wardrobe, so I had her change from the usual outfit to the halter top and short shorts you see here. Looking at it now, her outfit is actually almost a uniform for girls on most campuses whenever the temperature is above freezing. Puck gets an outfit change too – one of the few in the series – though her ensemble is definitely less stylish than Phoebe’s.

I still like this one: pure personality humour.
