The Christmas Kid

What this particular Sunday strip lacks in color magic, it certainly makes up for with enthusiasm. Porky's lament is certainly full of self-awareness.

It's a bit interesting that Kelly forgoes the use of actual chillun running around the table, indicating maybe that us grownups are still running around with our inner child.

Happy Sunday!


  1. I notice that Kelly kept switching from “God bless” to “Oh, bless” and vice versa. Any idea what determined that?

  2. For the most part Kelly seems to use 'God bless'. I'm guessing where he doesn't use it, he may be giving in to an editor's secular requests. He also used 'God rest ye merry gentlemen' a lot, and that would be hard to substitute. Hmm. 'O rest ye merry gentlemen'. Doesn't quite work, in the context of the song.
