So many reruns of this! Just like TBS on Christmas Day!
I like Scotty the Snowman.
Now I'm surprised I haven't seen a "Silver and Gold" parody before today.
The "innards" line made me bust out laughing.
I love this rerun. I read it out loud to my husband (singing the first panel, of course) because we had already decided that we really can't afford to exchange gifts this year (which of course will mean that we do) - CURSES!
I've never thought of it before but a bag marked "innards" in the freezer is the most secure location in my house.
You are the funniest, man. Happy holidays to you
Why is Scott holding a wedge of cheese in panel #2? More importantly, what's involved in acting casual with a wedge of cheese?
Do people say "curses" anymore? Even in comix? Dastardly s/f villains, sure, they would say "curses".
I love the first panel. He looks just like the Burl Ives snowman too. I bet Scott has to send the gift he made off to the Island of misfit toys. Then he'll be walking around all day singing " I'm just a misfit, I'm not a nitwit."
Awesome and very very funny, as always.
We're going through that right now.
Which is generally, mostly fun, but occasionally annoying.
Keep up the good work, Scott. Have a great holday!
Haha "Acting casual"
Another good one, Scott... I also love you as the snowman; that's awesome :)
I loved the Santa/Scott.
Help! Since the site redesign, I can't see any of the comics. I was hoping it would resolve itself, but it hasn't. I am using IE7 and it seems to work fine on the site except for the comics themselves. And it's a work computer so I don't have any option to use another browser. Can anyone out there give me some advice?
Happy Holidays, Scott and Missy! Hope 2010 is a wonderful year for the 2 of you! Thanks for all the smiles and laughs :)
@ Bret Michaels Pants: That's not a cheese wheel, that's a shopping bag!
Hah! I actually did a variant of the conclusion! I just put the gift in the drawer of my desk (at home), then teased the hell out of my girlfriend by informing her on any remotely relevant occasion where I was keeping her gift. She actually enjoyed that :)(please refrain from observations on the level of dysfunction of my relationship ;))
Neither of those two places work for me hiding my husband's gift. He's the one who deals with the wires behind the TV and the last time we had a bag marked "innards" he ate them...
