“Also cat” :)
This reminds me of:
“Also cat” indeed. It would seem that as far as “the economy vs. one day of beautiful delusion” is concerned, Cat is putting his stocking where his mouth is.
aw~!!! that’s so cute how they are blushing! btw, turkey (chicken?) looks good! yum!
I believe it is safe to surmise that they are both struck with horror and despair, feelings that they would prefer to hide from their respective loved ones if possible, at the poverty of their emotional lives and the inadequacy of their de facto family compared to the scale of their emotional needs.
Or something along those lines.
This makes me realize how we don’t really have any backstory for how a little girl ended up living in a house with an anthropomorphic cat. Anybody else curious?
I would be fairly distraught if my ‘family’ consisted of an anthopomorphic cat who drinks paint…
It could be a Tofukey, but Soy has goot a bad rap lately…
Why? Soy is WONDEFUL!
The tender bosom of faminely limned with such stark delicacy. The Baby Santa looks a little naked, though! :)
Merry Christmas, Dorothy & Mr Chen.
Not really, Greg. Dioramas die if studied with too much scrutiny. If it ain’t broke…
I figured they were upset with each other BECAUSE they’re family. Yeah, we’re family! Oh wait, now I hate you. . .
On XMAX day my girlfriend’s parents always serve manicotti. They are not Italian.
“Dioramas die if studied with too much scrutiny. If it ain’t broke…”
Perfecto. You get a gold star, Nalano.
My Grandmother has always made spaghetti, meatballs and sausage for Christmas Eve. She also made dinner for Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah. If that gives you any idea.
No, that gives me the opposite of an idea. It gives me a Newsweek cartoon.
lemme guess, you celebrate kwannza, dorothy
A lot of people here have bad spelling.
Depending on the interpretation you pick, this comic can either make you melt with the sweetness of it or weep at their loneliness.
Greg, there was an origins comic really early on. As I remember Girl came out of the sea on a turtle and Cat sprouted from her head when she was hit with a hammer. With that in mind, I think everything else makes more sense.
This made me feel hungry AND lonely… but hungry first.
To my fellow Greg: Origin stories are over-rated. I hope, some day, Marvel or DC will “reboot” a superhero movie without feeling compelled to re-tell the goddamn origin story.
