And A Star Will Guide Them

oh161224Okay, this is a bit dark for Christmas Eve. I apologize. It’s been a tough year. On the plus side, today’s cartoon has kicked up a fun fuss over at gocomics. Here’s what I wrote in the discussions:

I used to think our audience was turning old and cynical. But I’m cheered by today’s responses, both supportive and not. Christmas time (for believers or not) is the celebration of the birth of an idea… peace on Earth, goodwill toward all of us. I’m both concerned and hopeful for 2017. I’m concerned about the direction the world is headed, but hopeful from my study of history that we humans have a way of surprising even ourselves. Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! And to all a very, VERY, good New Year. – Michael Fry, writer/co-creator of Over the Hedge.

Onward through the fog.

Please turn down your high-beams.

The One With a Gilmore Girl’s Nativity Scene

oh161222I’d guess about 75% of our YUGE audience has no idea what this cartoon is about. My bad. I assume my obsession with pop culture stalwarts like Gilmore Girls is shared by everyone. It’s not.  But I kind of don’t care. It’s my/our party and we’ll make obscure references if we want to.

But not every day.

Trim the Tree That Knows Stuff

oh161219I know I hate it when after an eggnog bender someone hangs lights and tinsel all over me without my permission or more pertinently, my knowledge.

I feel The The Tree That Knows Stuff’s Pain.

The Lice That Roared

Over the Hedge - oh161218comb_ht.tifI’m a free speech absolutist. But that doesn’t mean I don’t censor my speech in the proper context. If that makes me politically correct, so be it.

Santa Gets Free Dental

oh161216That is a good deal. No one telling you to lose weight. No one slapping your hand when you reach for the nachos. No one reading out the number of calories in a Jack-in-the-Box meat lover’s burrito.
