original_post:_9/21/2001_______________ Ah, Pu Yai. My friend Drew, who later wrote the strip for a bit, helped me come up with Pu Yai. Pu Yai Bahn in Thai means "big man about town." He's one of the only characters that has a last name besides Trenton and Mr. Vargas. This is one of the only strips were Pu Yai also speaks an actual phrase that's not an 80's song lyric. That's a gimmick I came up with later. I think he's my Silent Bob. Kind of a lovable character that doesn't say much, but delivers a mean punchline. That's why we don't see or hear him too often. I also like that he adds a bit of different height level to the cast. Nothing but love for this guy.
