As for the comic...

A note for Europeans and those not in North America: in
America and Canada, fast food places offer unlimited refills on soft drinks.  The practice was started in earnest by Taco Bell in the 80’s (in part due to the fact that Pepsi owned the chain), and it spread to all other restaurants in the following decades.  I explain this because I know the endless refill is not prevalent in Europe, and most Europeans find the whole thing a little weird and sort of excessive.

Puck’s holding a 7.5 ounce Canadian can, by the way, which is why it may look a little small to some people.  (The 12 ounce American standard can is, in my opinion, just too big.  You don’t need that much.  Really, you don’t.)  They took the tiny Canadian cans away from us a few decades ago during the ‘bigger is better’ craze (which unsurprisingly coincided with the ‘endless refills’ craze), but the tiny cans are back on the shelves now thanks to the ‘Hey, we’re all super fat!’ craze.  I’ve heard the Canadian cans are even popping up on American shelves now.  Take that, American soft drink market!

 Top Web Comics seems to be down right now, so the link might not work, but I’m guessing (hoping) the site will be up fairly soon, so give it a try and hope for the best!  This month’s voting incentive is special!  It’s tasteful and bucolic!

Daphne’s perspective on these parks (minus the criminal undertones) mirrored my own childhood thoughts.  In all honesty, I haven’t been to a theme park of any variety in decades, so my perspective is extremely dated, but that much ballyhooed ‘magic’ of Disney World didn’t really do much for me as a kid.  I was a ride monster.  I wanted roller coasters, followed by more roller coasters, then maybe an overpriced funnel cake and some more coasters.  (That said, Space Mountain has serious chops, and I respect it.  And I’ve heard that Disney’s added tons of new rides to their roster, so maybe there’s more excitement in the Magic Kingdom now.)

To put it in terms that Americans would understand, I’d rather hit the local Six Flags than make the pilgrimage to Disney World any day.  But there are many, many people who don’t share my perspectives on this.  We’ll hear from one of those people in the very next strip.

How does comic rocket work? Is it a hosting site that links to your web page or an embedded script?

Uhm, I don't really know, but I think it's a stand-alone site that just pulls page info directly from your site.  There's no script you need to embed for Comic Rocket to work.  I think they copy your script and put it into their template.

Needless to tell you, I've been following Puck for some time, and it never gets old as to how amazing it is. I have to thank you for such a wonderful character and comic.

Aw, so nice of you to say.  I mean, we all have those days where we feel like trash and think that what we're doing is garbage, and today was one of those days for me.  Then you wrote that, and now I feel less like trash.  Thanks a bunch.

Hey, I calls 'em as I sees 'em, you do your best and it shines.
If you are trash, then I consider you the best kind of trash (there was a metaphor here, but I think I lost it..whoops..)
But seriously, I'm glad though it could give you a smile.

Well, if I can manage the best kind of trash, that's sort of what I'm aiming for.  ;) 

Thanks.
