Climate change

Hey, sorry I didn’t post a cartoon last week but I was at a fire festival where we couldn’t actually have a fire because everything else in the state is currently on fire. All these fires and the warm temperatures in general are not really putting me in the Christmas spirit. Thankfully I found a cartoon that brings these two ideas together. It’s long too, so hopefully that makes up for last week’s absence.

Hi, holidays!

I know I woke up at 7:45 of my own volition this Saturday morning, but I’ve never identified with Scrappy as much as in this cartoon. I’m ready for the holidays. I mean, not ready at all but ready as a child might be ready. But Thanksgiving is not until Thursday so I might need to go back to bed for a little bit as soon as I post this.

In spite of myself

Please bear with this cartoon if you are like me and have a special dread of the seasonal chestnut “A Visit from St. Nicholas.”  If I were to do an impressionistic re-write of “A Visit from St. Nicholas,” it would be along the lines of:

Sugarplums
Clatter
Simile
Simile
Simile
List of names
Simile
Simile simile simile simile
Simile simile
Wink jerk
Simile
Good night

This cartoon omits seven of my least favorite similes from the poem in favor of a nice little toy rescue sub-plot. Merry Christmas; don’t forget.

Russian around the Christmas tree

Getting a Christmas tree in Russia seems really difficult if this is what Father Christmas has to do to get one.

Wind-up fork duck

I may have posted this cartoon a few Christmases ago, but let’s watch it again. You can’t have too many wind-up fork ducks in your life, right?
