  1. I’m still mirthing.

  2. Frank, incensed and mirth.

    Merry Christmas all.

  3. Wow, Jeff — I didn’t know you were a mirther!

  4. McGehee


    Can I get you some more egg nog? What’s your spike of choice?

  5. Usually I pour the hooch and then spike it with a few drops of nog.

  6. Egg nog: pour some Irish Whiskey over ice in a lowball glass.


  7. too much mirth may give you girth burma shave

  8. Merry Christmas, Hobbits! May the hair on your feets grow long and curly!

  9. Don’t listen to Darleen, McGehee, that was awesome.

  10. Perfect. An illustration even the brain-dead progs can understand.

  11. Beautiful.

    I committed social suicide on tumblr as my gift to myself because I’m done pretending that I am a tragic sensitive artist when I am in fact an angry, discontented classical liberal doodler.

  12. Since Birth,
    I’ve had a Berth’s
    of Girth,
    And A Dearth
    of Mirth
    on this Earth
    ….and I guess
    when I die
    they’ll drive me
    in a herth.

    Burma Shave?

    you’re a doodler? what’s your tumblr name?

  14. Father Luke has an impossible task before him. His diocese is without a bishop right now…. Monsignor … is personally devastated by the losses. The parish is very large…. The rectory has received serious threats, and as my brother gave the homily Sunday at the noon mass, the church had to be evacuated by SWAT teams. After experiencing identity theft and online hacking incidents, he had to erase all of his internet accounts. After a weekend of endless media requests, notifications and vigils with heartbroken families, and little sleep, he now has two wakes and two funerals every day, until the fourth Sunday of Advent. Father Luke has not even been ordained two years.

    My large family has been trying to send Father Luke our love and support from afar, and one of my brothers was able to visit with him briefly a couple times. All he asks for is prayer. I have been wracking my brain, trying to think of a way that our beautiful, loving community could tangibly reach out to Father Luke, Monsignor Weiss, and the St. Rose parish, to support them in this most awful of times. I have sent many prayer requests, and I am asking for more prayers again. But I also want to ask everyone to search their hearts, and if the Holy Spirit moves you, please consider sending one of your family’s Christmas cards to the rectory, with a few words of love and encouragement. Here is his address:

    Father Luke Suarez 46 Church Hill Road Newtown, CT 06470


  15. Oh dear… the usual hyenas on Twitter are going to freak. ;-)

    Merry Christmas, everyone. :-D

  16. I can’t think of anything I’d rather be doing on christmas eve than mirthing. Its the one thing I look forward to all year. I remember how chrushed everyone was that one year when we misplaced the wassle and had to completely forgo mirthing that christmas. We did however, still manage to capture the seasons spirit by eating a big slice of that 48 year old fruit cake, and passing out on the couch with food poisoning.

    *** Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ***

  17. i say hey to all the fine folk passing through s. dakota this time of year. n. dakota is more real donuts.

  18. Always make sure you have a passel of wassel. And even more important, make sure you remember where you parked it.

    Merry Christmas and peace on earth to persons of goodwill — all others stand by.

  19. And another Merry Christmas! from the Las Vegas strip, where there is manufactured mirth ’round the clock. Bellagio even extended their ‘dancing fountains’ to midnight, so mirthers could enjoy the holiday spirit a few hours longer. Good times!

  20. Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Thread!

  21. The rectory has received serious threats, and as my brother gave the homily Sunday at the noon mass, the church had to be evacuated by SWAT teams.

    What? Any details on this?

  22. Merry Christmas, everyone!

  23. Is the pellet with the poison in the passel of the wassel?

    Merry Christmas.

  24. Only the nuclear wassels, according to Admiral Chekov.

  25. Merry Christmas, pw!

  26. All I want for Christmas is for someone to tell me how to block embedded videos.

    My smart phone does it, is there any way to set a pc to do it?

  27. Flashblock can stop a lot of it, if you’re using Firefox.

    According to Admiral Chekov.

  28. Merry Christmas everyone!

  29. beemoe, NoScript for Firefox will pretty much block everything unless you allow it.

  30. beemoe, depending on browser, there are also specific “flashblock” plugins that require you to give specific permission (usually by right-clicking on the item) for a video or flash ad to play.

  31. Heh. Kinda like the oft-proposed challenge to the hoplophobes to post a sing on their door reading “This is a Gun Free Home, Please Don’t Hurt Us!”

    Merry Christmas from Amarillo, TX, where you should be happy you aren’t, it’s snowing like a motha. All we wanted was to pass through on our way south to sunnier climes but here we sit. Best laid plans and all that.

    Thank god we have a case of champagne and the ice is growing wild!

  32. “sign” [sigh] What can I say? It’s good champagne.

    And thank god we got out of SE Kansas, looks like they’re getting hammered. Made a pretty good run but a little too slow….

  33. So, Swen, I should just forget about I-40 for the next day or so?

    Southern route. Damn, that adds lots of windshield time…

  34. Feliz Navidad
    Buon Natale
    Joyeux Noël

  35. Proving that Jeff’s blog is not UTF-8 encoded.

  36. But it’s a dry, fluffy snow serr8d! If it weren’t for the 40mph winds it would be nothing. We’re really hoping to get out of here tomorrow, but common sense says no. So yes, avoid I-40! It’s nasty out there.

  37. Ps. And I’d thought that by making a run for Amarillo we’d be out of the worst of it. I wouldn’t even consider driving I-40 east of here. Wish we’d braved the bad roads and run south to Abilene, but been there, done that. Oklahoma back roads are for shit and I didn’t want to break an axle.

  38. @missfixit: plagueheart.

    my BLAG is not totally sfw because sometimes I draw people with their clothes off.

  39. I just got an idea of how to make some easy money in art. Find one of those hipster coffee house/bar places that will basically hang anything on the wall for sale, then paint very unflattering nudes of real people, and put them up for display. Most folks would probably gladly pay $50 or more to get them down asap.

    My Christmas gift to you aspiring artists out there, lol.

  40. :|a

    Sounds good.

    Could I also sue for discrimination if they refuse to hang my nudes?

  41. Oklahoma back roads are for shit and I didn’t want to break an axle.

    Their I-states aren’t much better. Nor are AR, TX, NM and AZ, by my estimation. TN has spoiled me.

    Looks like a run to DFW via El Paso for me. Then a decision to return to I-40 at Little Rock or keep to more southern routes, hopefully the tornadoes having spent all their fury prior to my transit.
