I can imagine a few bad words on the bunting! “Bye, bye 2020 bye,bye…
Ah, the joy of making household decorations before the kids learn to read.
Yeah, I think the word is a lot shorter than goodbye. More like four letters.
Yep, I totally believe them, completely and totally believe them that it says goodbye.
Yup. I bet the word is a fairly salty one. Good thing the CN reporters are being so discrete.
Sure Burt, we believe you, uh huh.
Woman, this is a child-friendly cartoon. For shame!
No shame in stating what we’re all thinking, After all, Puck has provided the CN equivalent of a bleep. And no harm whatever in leaving things open to individual interpretation.
Gonna get them in trouble with the FCCC.
But you did mention it, Elvis.
For that matter, Very Well Said!!!
Actually… what word we are all thinking… fits! And for me… it is a Litter Box Day. The day I take out and clean the box for the cats to enjoy fresh! HAPPY NEW YEAR Folks!!
Remember how years such as 2016 were seen as “the worst year ever”?
Yanno how with 2020, we’ve pretty much forgotten all that?
Let’s hope the same doesn’t happen with 2021. =D;; crosses fingers
The Woman is known for her excellent buntings.♥
There should be an option to “like” this about a thousand times. Perfect way to salute the end of this year.
She didn’t learn her lesson about using glitter? That is a worse transgression than whatever word is hidden under Pucky’s NOPE sign.
Green Day: Good Riddance (The Time of Your Life)
Another year goes by, a nasty one, it’s so,
Time keeps on marching on, we are not sorry to see it go
We’ll make the best of this test and never wonder why
We did our best and somehow we managed to get by
It’s really been a nasty year, but in the end it’s right
I hope there’s better times in our life!
So make the golden banner and hang it by the sill,
Paint it up with glitter and write out what you will,
Gather the memories and keep them in your file,
And then we’ll just let it go and move on with a smile!
I wish I could like this one twice.
Thank you, Elvis.❤️
I guess that the children can’t read yet but still! But 2020 calls for strong language. Who knew the cats would be so delicate? Well, Elvis naturally but Puck?
Four letters that indicate the Boy has not yet learned to read…
It must be an impressive amount of glitter if Lupin the Former Disco Ball is in awe.
Lemme guess, Puck. It sounds like yer name, right?
This has been hung up in the office, the kids don’t bother going in there. However, Lupin is considering eating the word just in case, bravely risking a face full of glitter.
Lovely Elvis; bristling with indignation.
Can Burt not pixilate?
I think Beatrix said it for us all – though it wouldn’t fit on that banner.
Aww, it’s not the poor year’s fault! It’s only 12 ordinary months, like any other year – I mean, it’s not 2020’s fault it’s been burned, flooded, infected, blown away, blown up, etc…(That said, I can understand the sentiment!)
I reckon the best New Year’s comment I’ve heard so far, is in the webcomic “Schemantics”: The absolutely best thing about the coming year: that there is one…
“Dave Barry’s 2020 review” is a must read, but if it hurts to laugh don’t.
Yeah….feelin the same…
Is Lupin going to become another disco party ball?
Should 2020 be forgot
And never brought to mind?
Or bedazzled in a sign?
Oh, to forget dreadful times, my dears
And to remember times so fine
Puck shows his infinite kindness yet
As he “nopes” the @#$&-ing sign
(Robert Burns – Auld Lang Syne)
I don’t think many people will be melancholy about leaving 2020, a veritable arm-pit of a year.
I can think of many things to call 2020, most of them unprintable. The kindest think I can think of is “bye, 2020”.
So much glitter…
Do you kiss The Boy and The Girl with that mouth of yours, Woman? :-o
Oh; and right on! :-D
We, have a unique opportunity here. One of our little merry band of Rebels will be in 2021 before us and let us know what the future holds.
He will can send us word back tomorrow morning and let us know how 2021 looks… I for one, would like to know:
1. Flying Cars – Where are our flying cars? Do we have them yet?
2. Who won the Boxing day test cricket match? I want to put a bet down.
3. Is 2021 better than 2020, the year of straight up poop?
I am sure the rest of you have questions and you can post them here for Future Robin.
I’m thinking it’s a verb. The same verb often used with the adverb (or preposition) “off” or the pronoun “you.”
OMC!!! Please tell me you actually did this Georgia!!!
Oh, it just says “BYE 2020!”
And, to make things worse, my beloved Unk Bill, is either dead, or in hospital or a nursing home; his Christmas Card was returned to me as “undeliverable” with “no forwarding address”!!!!!! He was my Mom’s lil bro & the last of the seven siblings…
Probably not “BON VOYAGE”
I’m sure everyone has seen this by now, but I’ll post the link anyway.
What is the word the Woman uses when she forgets to take the rack out of the oven before she heats it up? I think it’s that word.
Im just waiting on more glitter fun, * new years
Not in front of the children. Or the kitties!!
Please use all of your fingers when waving goodbye to 2020.
Humans can be so embarrassing.
Oh, I dunno, I’m not sure I’d want to do that to 2020…knowing 2020, I’d probably catch a parasite or something just trying.
So, the gatos have been watching A Christmas Story and know what the Queen Mother of Dirty Words is.
I’ll put this out here. In a year in which most anything that could go wrong did I am grateful the year is almost over. I am also thankful that what did go wrong could have been far far worse and that all in all at least I managed to make it through relatively unscathed.
A vert good year if you enjoy constant flight or fight mixed with nausea.
Today is: D-1
Rudyard Kipling’s Birthday: This is from his “A General Summary,” I had it framed and posted in my office: “Who shall doubt ‘the secret hid/ Under Cheop’s pyramid’/ Was that the contractor did/ Cheops out of several millions?/ Or that Joseph’s sudden rise/ to Comptroller of Supplies/ was a fraud of monstrous size/ On King Pharaoh’ s swart Civilians?”
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Festival of Enormous Last Minute Changes: In honor of this holiday, the year 2020 has been rescinded …
National Nahcolite Day: Seems to me it would be more appropriate on January 1 … NaHCO³, a.k.a. sodium bicarbonate, bicarbonate of soda, and “bicarb.” A mineral and chemical of enormous utility. It is an excellent buffer, being an “acid salt,” especially for challenged stomachs. When the natural mineral was discovered, the geological pundit came up with NaHCOlite. He was nearly unfrocked for this, but the name stuck. At least he didn’t propose NaHCOlit3, which is a truly horrible pun.
Bacon Day: Even 2020 is better with bacon, and if you eat too much, there’s always nahcolite.
Curses! Shielded from yet another coarse invective that perhaps might corrupt my innocence!
I’m laughing so hard at this comic….
“CURSE 2020!” perhaps
Bird is not the word. Goodbye is the word.
The glitter. It calls to me.
Burt is responsible for the text at the bottom. He says the word is goodbye. That’s his story and he is sticking to it.
I know that someone has come up with a pseudo Greek word for the text, but NOPE
My calendar arrived today. I can’t wait to put it up. If you haven’t ordered a calendar from Zazzle before the quality is really good on them. Nice heave paper, the pages shouldn’t curl like they do on a lot of calendars.
Did the Boy and the Girl learn a new phrase or did the woman blindfold them so that won’t be putting a sailor to shame?
HAPPY NEW YEAR..
I would describe 2020 in LOTS of words! NONE of them are suited to use here. I think I’ll have to suffice with CURSE YOU, 2020!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

to close out this year of straight up poop, i decided to fall face first onto some asphalt, somehow or other not breaking any bones in my face but managing to break my right hand, which is currently in a splint. i am typing with my left index finger which is painfully slow for someone who usually types at over 100 words a minute. can’t cap because can’t use 2 fingers. type for work so won’t be working for a while. have a headache but not much other pain, fortunately. thanks for listening.
We all went in and donated blood Monday. According to Zazzle, my calendar should be here New Year’s Day. There’s a turkey cooking on the stove and tonight Jora will bone it and tomorrow it will go through the meat grinder and become turkey salad. J-L cleaned up the refrigerator drawer it had been in right away so now we have that drawer again. The giblets are outside for the outside kitties as Database and Reboot usually turn up their noses at giblets. Weird kitties. Tomorrow is our annual “Eat the old year out and the new year in” not actually a party party. I doubt we will stay up all night playing games this year but that’s ok. I have to go back to work on Monday unless something happens to close schools. The kids return on Tuesday.
And so, life does manage to go on.
Good riddance, 2020. Bring on the new year!
I’ve been reading Winter Witches of Holiday Haven a series of 5 mystery novellas about a magical community near the north pole. The expletives in that community consist of Christmas songs or holiday treats. They may utter “Oh holy night!” or “Oh, snickerdoodles!” at times of surprise or frustration. I’ve got one more book to go to finish the series.
I confess I used the hinted-at bunting language as a password on a rarely used site. I’ll probably change it again in 1 day and 7 hours or so.
OT: I DO believe in mail carriers
Hmm, I predict they will ALL get covered in glitter on the 1st.
Icing on the cake for 2020, Dawn Wells aka Mary Anne from Gilligan’s Island dies of Covid in LA. Wow, used to watch that show in the living room of my house in the early ‘70s before my oldest sister’s (controller of the TV) fave show “Dark Shadows” came on at 4PM. Then it was on TBS forever….. This has been a tough year, glad Georgia did this strip…..
Yup, We all agree!
goodbye that begins with F…..yep!
Hahahaha. Yes, a four letter word.
At least the banner doesn’t mention anything about the horse 2020 rode in on.
I wholeheartedly endorse the banner’s sentiment.
It clearly says CIAO! * 2020!
2020, I bid the adieu and I wish that you burn in fires of eternal torment for the rest of eternity.
My mom has an ornament that says the same thing!
Command X, or in other words not today.
