Caroling for Bonuses

Cartoon of a group of Christmas carolers. They’re singing, “€œDeck the Halls With fiscal Slowness, fa-la-la-la-la-a-a, La-la-la-la! Please give us our Year End Bonus…”

I originally drew this a dozen years ago during another economic slow-down. These things happen in cycles.

Confession is good for the Loot

Cartoon of  a boy on Santa Claus’ lap. Boy says, “If I confess stuff, will I get more loot?”

Something about Santa and his throne has always made me uneasy. It felt more like a confession booth to me. I was sure he would penetrate the deep, dark places of my soul and find a reason not to give me that souped up Batmobile!

Christmas Lights

Cartoon of boy hanging Christmas lightsCartoon of boy hanging by gutter. He says, “Get Dad! Tell him I’m sorry I started putting up Christmas lights without him and I could really use his help!”

It has been warm for an Indiana Christmas. I was able to put the Christmas lights on the house and wear a short-sleeve shirt. This time, my kids didn’t have to wait for me. You know how impatient they get!

Caption reads: “Get Dad! Tell him I’m sorry I started putting up Christmas lights without him and I could really use his help!”
