Cartoon Saturday - Christmas Edition

Europe is reeling under a huge winter storm that has closed airports, stranded travelers in 185 kilometer-long traffic jams, and caused hundreds of event cancellations; at least 141 inmates have escaped from a Mexican prison, the director of which has also disappeared; police in Los Angeles are looking for the public's help to identify more than 100 possible victims of the so-called "Grim Sleeper" serial killer; and your elected reprehensives in the House of Representatives booed yesterday when told, because of pressing business, they would have to "work" next week instead of going into holiday recess.

Whatever would you do if you didn't have Cartoon Saturday to help you over the harsh reality?

Christmas is just a week away, and so today Cartoon Saturday brings you this special Christmas edition of your favorite weekly post. If you are Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Zoroastrian, Wiccan, or anything else, just enjoy it anyhow.

A good new take on the old joke about why there's an angel on top of the Christmas tree...

There are reindeer games and there are reindeer games...

And there are still other reindeer games ...

Are we there yet? Are we? I've gotta go to the bathroom! Etc ...

If letters to Santa were true ...


Sometimes, you've just got to try Plan B ...

Did you see that? ...


Is Santa really a dirty old man? ...

You know it's gotta come sooner or later ...

And that little-known footnote to history ...

It's a day for last-minute Christmas shopping, card mailing, decorating, and other holiday stuff. We had a wonderful Christmas party last night at the dance studio, and there will be more parties and fun over the next two weeks.

Just don't drop that fruitcake on your foot.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

And don't forget that our inspired representatives passed a 3-day CRA. They are EXPERTS at kicking the can and dodging responsibility. Don't think about them and have a nice holiday break!

I think I'd rather deal with nukes in Cuba.
