wow seriously first? sweet. but anyway about the comic. That song is hilarious and I will be mentally singing it for quite a while now. Also it amuses me to think that a bag marked "innards" is a common sight in your freezer. happy holidays

I keep waiting for the comic titled "How to tell that your wife is a lesbian." Seriously, that haircut, those glasses...

Thanks for the rerun, Scott. Funny stuff.

Merry Christmas!

This was a rerun? Totally don't remember this one, although I guess I should be able to tell since you've updated your wife's artwork since this. Definitely a good one though.

Scott Meyers as Burl Ives as a singing snowman's official mind has been totally phouqued ... Happy Saturnalia, everybody!

Wow... First panel snowman = priceless.

Another great Meyer idea put on paper! BTW Justin You can't judge wiether someone is a lesbian or not if they have short hair and glasses is a comic strip...

December 25, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChels

Ha ha, sexual-physical stereotypes!

It's not just the hair and glasses. She's cast as the sensible one in their relationship. Good Christ man, how much more evidence do you need?

"CURSES!" makes me bust up. Every time.

Been a long time lover of the comic, brought here from the Dilbert Blog, stayed here, dropped it :) Thought I spotted a re-run but don't mind seeing a Scott-Sam again :) Always, love the work, Merry Christmas

She wasnt a lesbian before she married him, but Im sure shes close to turning into one

December 26, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterCrim

Holy jeez, you guys! I'm totally not a lesbian!

Maybe I should get a wig to wear for future drawings!

December 26, 2008 | Unregistered Commentermissy

Just so long as it's not a femullet, you should be okay!

BTW - "a wig to wear for future drawings" is a hilarious sentence. Also, having to defend your sexuality on the family web comic blog is also hilarious.

Did you get a banjolele and a full-head snowman mask for Christmas, then?

December 26, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAndreaC

justin, she's 'the sensible one' because, hello, she's married to a tronnie cartoonist who buys night vision goggles and is bullied by his cat!

December 26, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterwhiterabbit11

She has to be sensible after all she did marry a Meyer for crying out loud! and Yeah Justin told ya she wasn't :P

December 27, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChels

I think you could get away with a nice bobcut wig, Missy.

Just one man's opinion.

December 27, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnother Rob

I always thought she looked better with the glasses. But the webtards calling names here and on scared them off of here. :-(

December 28, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterFrankleeMiDeer

Holy jeez, you guys! Iā€™m totally not a lesbian!

No one would blame you in the slightest if you were, Missy. We'd understand, dear.

Whoo hoo! My secret Christmas gift was a copy of Help Is on the Way! Made my Christmas merry. "Merry" meaning "laughing until I cried." So thanks for that. I think. :) I hope you have a happy New Year!

she is not a lesbian. i think that she is the voice of reason within the mad world of scott. also she is a strong willed female. lol...keep up the good work

January 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJack

I'm a lesbian trapped in a man's body!

If I ever am somewhere with snow, I'll definitely make a snowman with a goatee,
