    Hot chocolate, even with 6 million marshmallows, can’t cure a squashed snowman.

    Mr. Otterloop has committed snowmanicide on Alice’s proud accomplishment! There aren’t enough marshmallows in the universe to assuage his four-year-old daughter’s tears. It’s the heartbreak only a child can know, and nothing can ever make up for it—a psychological scar that will never vanish entirely….

    It’s in B&W because it is a “repeat” from Feb 14th 2009, ( http://www.gocomics.com/culdesac/2009/02/14)

    Thompson is undergoing a new regimen of treatment for Parkinson’s disease. He was diagnosed more than a year ago.
    The past month or two has been comics from his first book.
    We all hope he recovers soon!

    Poor Alice she had such high hopes. Then dashed an crushed by Dad’s unthinking step. A very sad girl.
