About this comic

Poor kid. Dreams don’t always come true. Socks always come true. The more you know. Knowing is half the battle. Until next time.

      You are doing so well. You’re going to do great in Chicago. You mentioned on my blog that you’re a nocive. I disagree. You’ve shared some great advice here. You certainly are a runner with something to share.

    Not to put down Scott, but I think it would have been funny if the kid got a Wii. :)

    You only really realize how far north you live when you actually start asking for socks on Christmas.

  8. tnfreak says:

    You forgot the obligatory 2 weeks later panel when Mr. Tumnus steals just 1 of your new socks!

    Who put that severed arm under his pillow. Is he waiting for the arm fairy? Great strip btw.

      You’ll get more lead shooting (mostly from prmeris than anything else) and handling the boolits than you will from casting them. You are melting lead, not vaporizing it. Lead doesn’t want to go into the vapor phase at temps you are heating it to, unless you do something really stupid. Most furnaces keep it at proper temps and not above.Wash your hands afterwards and you will be fine.

    LOL – so true…

    Scott- you did it. This is a great strip. Kid-friendly, nothing dirty. Just a fun, witty comic for the entire family.

    Imagine the poor kid that wanted socks and got a Kinect instead.

  14. Heheh. That hit home for me. If it isn’t socks, it’s sweaters.

    That might explain why I wear metal T-shirts much of the time.

      Flash, do you think Mortimer could invent a time maihcne so you could go back and meet the people who built your 113 year old house? I bet you could meet lots of interesting cats back then tool

    This kind of thing happened a lot to me as a kid. But then we had the notes left on the tree from Santa. These notes always led us around the house on a hunt that would lead from one note to another to another until finally… we would get something truly awesome! Usually the one big thing we had asked for that year. My mom was always trying to make Christmas good for us, even when they didn’t have money. It was always interesting to me to hear, “We’re a little tight this year, so Christmas will be a bit smaller this time around, so I need to know which things on your list are your top 4 or 5 wishes.” Then Christmas morning would get there, and NOTHING HAD CHANGED! We always got socks and shirts and stuff we NEEDED from Mom & Dad, along with one (or maybe two) really fun things, even if we hadn’t asked for those particular things. Then, Santa brought all of the things we had asked for and wanted so badly all year. Although one year Santa brought me some socks. I think the package was mislabeled…
