A Post-Christmas Comic That Made Me Laugh Out Loud

I can laugh at this, because Christmas isn’t my holiday. All I ever have to do is put away a menorah, and I’m done.

And I hope to get around to that by the end of the week at the latest.

This is the first time he ever stayed to the end of a Christmas dinner??

Politically Incorrect Comic of the Week

(and why the comic is dated 12/24 but published 12/29 is another matter)

They’re Christmas cookies. Even the President of the ACLU calls them Christmas cookies. Unless, you know, some of them are shaped like dreidels and Kwanzaa candles.
Just saying…

One Final Christmas Comic That Made Me Laugh Out Loud


More Christmas comics that made us lol

Post-Christmas Comics I Didn’t Understand


Yes I know what schadenfreude means. I just don’t understand how it relates to Santa and The Donald.


If Grandma had gotten run over by a reindeer, at least I’d have known what the joke was supposed to be; but…

Christmas Comics That Made Jim Moore Laugh Out Loud


The artist’s sheer audacity made me laugh!

Christmas comics that made the rest of us lol

Christmas Cards

I have no idea what the joke is here, but I suspect the cartoonist is getting coal in his stocking this morning.

(Click the comic if you can’t see the whole thing)

Christmas Comics That Made Me Laugh Out Loud


Honestly there’s a bit of CIDU here because I’m not sure whether Dan Piraro intended this as a “There’s a War on Christmas!” whine. I will give him the benefit of the doubt and say no, though, because it made me laugh.




Well, at least he’s not wearing a cheerleader skirt…


I really do believe that Tom Batiuk is leading up to Les being not just embarrassingly eccentric, but mentally ill — ever since, in fact, that bizarre adventure in Manhattan “ten years ago.”

Which of course will make these strips a lot less amusing in hindsight, the same way all those jokes about Ronald Reagan’s memory and attention span lapses were funny until it turned out he had Alzheimer’s.


A Comic Re-examined

Not a CIDU, of course. I’m just saying I found today’s Cleats
a lot funnier because of this recent one:

Getting Carded

Filed under: Bill Bickel, Chanukah, Christmas, Christmas cards, Clear Blue Water — Cidu Bill @ 10:13 pm


This is by no means a critcism of this comic, because it’s funny, but… Why is finding “a non-offensive generic holiday card” even a real enough problem that it needs to be a subject for humor? None of this is brain surgery: You send Christmas cards to Christians. You send Chanukah cards to Jews. If you believe your Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist and atheist friends will feel slighted, you can always find a New Year’s card or something non-holiday-related.

If this is too much trouble for you, then don’t send cards. If you don’t know your friends well enough to know whether they’re Christian, they probably shouldn’t be on your list.

And Ms. Montague-Reyes is right: A card like this respects nobody’s holiday.

Okay, I get that they’re singing traditional Christmas songson their way to pick out an artificial Christmas tree (whch they all seem quite happy about). Am I missing a joke here?

I have to admit, I feel as old as Arlo (as indeed I guess I am) whenever he comes up with one of these trivial “I remember when” comments and I remember when as well.

He Needs a What to What??

Okay, so what he’s saying in the follow-up is that massive consumerism (if indeed that’s what getting a toy rocket ship is) is a good thing?

For CIDU or For Ewww

Lorraine Woodward: Tell me “legs” is some Canadian Christmas candy that smells like candy canes or pine cones–otherwise I’m putting this one solidly in the “CIDU EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!” category?!
