    A unique twist on an old Chas. Addams cartoon.

    I’m stunned into silence right now. Genius, MT!

    Lio for once seems to be at a loss….

    You can dodge Lio, but you can’t dodge the tree!

    So am I. Did somebody ski into the tree? Did it eat them? or… did the tree ski to where it is now? I’m feeling very dense today – can someone enlighten me?

    I think the tree was skiing, susanwobb!

    Nothing like a little surrealism at 2:43 AM.

    I don’t think anyone ran into the tree - there’s no imprint where he supposedly fell afterward.

    But if the tree were skiing, where’d the skis go?

    Didn’t Chers’ husband Sonny do that several years ago?

    margueritem has it right. This is a twist on an old and classic (and much copied) Charles Addams cartoon where you see ski tracks wrap around a tree and continue on undeterred.

    I am looking for the skier who hit the tree, and it almost looks like the person fell behind the tree,as if they almost got past the tree – this is the only problem I have with this cartoon.

    It sort of looks like something traveling under the snow leaving two trails (ears?, tentacles?, horns?), and the thing was able to spread the ears, tentacles, or horns around Lio, but then smacked into the tree.

    Guessing here, any other ideas?

    @Pacejv:

    Yes, as well as one of the Kennedys. Both of them are now history.

    Looks to me like someone skied around Lio and hit the tree. There are motion marks on the tree and the tree is leaning as though hit. If you look closely at the base of the tree you can see some small bubbles artists use to show injury. B. Breathed used bubbles around BTC to show when he was out of it, wasted, etc….
