To send you all off, here is a caption contest using my holiday card for this year. Put your best caption in the comments.

The reindeer is saying, “Looks like Santa is ready to stop by Mark Tatulli’s house”.

Bwa ha ha ha… Kidding Mark! You are my 7th favorite cartoonist… no wait 9th………. 15th if we factor in unsyndicated cartoonists… if that’s the case I jump to number 5……. just in front of Danny Boris and the judges in the upcoming Cartoonist Studio contest. Once the contest is over, Mark will move up a few notches……… but will still be behind me and Charmy’s Army…. PLUG!

“I KNOW you told me to pee before we left. And debating that fact isn’t helping the situation.”

I have a feeling we need to wear one of those suits Santa is wearing, or our noses will look like Rudolphs!

He claims that the new suit protects him better from the cold. Between you and me though, I think he’s not telling us something about Rudolph’s nose. Have you seen the way it glows!

“Oh @#%&, did Rudolph eat bean burritos for lunch again?”
or
“Is Santa delivery Stephan Patis’s latest Perals Before Swine books?” – Bwa ha ha ha! Honestly, Stephan is one of my heroes. I think he is number 2!!!!

Sure he did, and it was a great one. The Professor was dressed up as Santa Claus, and he and Shoe were putting presents in Skyler’s stocking.
