group: jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle yoda way!
luann: "star wars" and christmas?
bernice: i feel a disturbance in the force.
January 17, 2018
Yeah, but ‘jingle Yoda way’ still makes my teeth hurt…
An A for effort give them I will.
Funny thing; Luann and Bernice are leaving to go Christmas shopping in today’s Luann Againn….
The inhumanity of it all. I’d rather crash in the Hindenburg.
There’s practically no day in the year when there hasn’t been something Star Wars related showing up, somewhere… – Storm Troopers handing out tickets on the freeway, A ‘back to school’ event with a Star Wars theme, C3POs cereal, the Ewoks (craze with their own cartoon, cereal and stuffed toys), giving Han Solo the key to the city… Probably will get their own Las Vegas show, soon. Boy, will Celine Dion be mad, when she has to fight Han Solo for the last parking space…
“The Darth Side Of The Moon”“The Emporium Strikes Back”“More Than Meets The Jedi”“Rise Against The Banana Republic”“The Darth Maul Mall Tour”“Permanent Tatooine”“Ewoks Pretty Fast”“The Battle Of Endorsement”“To Market, To Market”“Pitch A Fit”“Don’t Have A Cash Cow”“Ad About You”or“A Contagious Disney’s”
Luann, I find your lack of Christmas spirit… Disturbing.
That is true! – But on the “flip side”, we got the better version of “Price Is Right”… and probably the better AC/DC T-shirts… we also stole Rick Springfield, Mel Gibson, Olivia Newton John and Kylie Minogue- no, I think we ended up giving her back….
Please don’t bring back that embarrassing memory to our attention. That show never existed, it is nothing but an urban legend. Now if only we could say the same about Jar Jar Bings…
Who else watches Star Wars movies on Christmas?Just me?OK
No Han in the choir, but then again, Harrison Ford is Jewish.
Next time you’re in your local mall, stop in the Hallmark card store and check out their section of Christmas decorations. Then count those that even remotely have anything to do with Christmas!
I would be willing to bet that everyone and anyone involved in the production of that abomination from Malebolge still wakes up in the middle of the night in cold sweats, screaming "What the hell was I *thinking*‽‽‽
Chop off the back of that USA Falcon and add a little truck bed, and you get my 1963 Ranchero. I loved that car.
If You THINK You’re “Disturbed” now, Bernice, just WAIT ‘til You SEE J.J. Abram’s “Interpretation” of S.W……,
Is that Piro’s sweater Bernice is wearing?
This was actually happening at my local mall yesterday!
So why is Han missing from the group? All of the other characters and character types are there, so why not Han?
Sorry, but the thing aired – what, once? It didn’t work then, and it doesn’t work now. (If it wasn’t for the “Sally Forth” comic strip, it would probably not be remembered at all…)
And it’s Christmas Day, not “Life Day.”
“You’re a mean one, Mister Vader. You really are a heel…”
What do you give a Wookiee for Christmas when he already has a comb?
Have you completed your Christmas shopping, folks, or have you been standing in line for the Star Wars thing?
What’s next “O Little Town of Mos Eisley”?
Maybe you should find another toon to dis.
Evans can’t even say Christmas? Fail.
ouch. KKK. accident or meant to be funny?
Note the sign . . .-——————————I spotted that. Evans also took the Christ out of Christmas by doing that!

Gee — now those kids can use their Halloween costumes twice a year.
Oh come on!! The strip is making a point about the latest commercialization of what is basically at base a religious, should I even say, Christian holiday. Using a Star Wars tie-in is an example of that even though it is cute. Remember these are characters in a strip, so hating them is puerile. Jesus -:)
Everyone talks about how horrible the SW Holiday special is, but have any of you even seen it? I have, and yes, it IS horrible, but people often just parrot everything others say, without actual experience of things.
My point exactly, which makes the Bernice character comment as a criticism of this trend valid, and not a reason to dislike the character.
Kids Kristmas Karoler…KKK?
Yes, the Kids Kristmas Karolers seems to be an overlooked oopsie today. Then again, Kourtney, Khole, and Kim (Kardashian) don’t seem to notice either.
The first picture is a Falcon from the 60s. The second is a Falcon from the 70s. Production of the Falcon in the US ended in 1970 1/2, The last American Falcon looked similar to “2HANDS” up there.
I saw the very first Star Wars movie when it came out. After seeing the “original”, I really didn’t care to see the others.More interested in seeing the next daily events in the strip. It’s been kind of a revolving door of characters.
Stat Wars suks
Greg’s got “The Force Awakens” on his mind.
If Team Evans really does read the comments, perhaps they are now considering a “recall” of today’s comic by asking UClick not to display it after today, much the same as Lucas had the Christmas Special withdrawn from rerun.
The only thing disturbing here is how awful of a person Bernice has become this past year.-—————————————————————————————We’re all different here on this message board!!
Bernice, despite her obsessions, is one of my favorite characters. I too would feel a disturbance in the force on seeing that display.
Yes! Yes! Let your hatred flow!
Looks like a Ford Anglia from the late 50es. My dad had one.
Making up stuff to be annoyed about.
Implausible“Also think it’s pretty horrible of Bernice to make fun of a bunch of kids.”.Nah, at the ones who put them up to it, those who are supposed to be adults, Implausible as it might seem to you. It was a Really Bad idea, 2.
Thank you Brdshtt. I’m with Bern on this one.
“I keep staring at today’s cartoon, and for the life of me I can’t find the word “hate” or a synonym thereof anywhere. hmmm. I must need new glasses.”.Yep, the fault must by YOURS. .After all otherwise, it would be the fault of those who misinterpret every little thing in the most negative way possible..We don’t know anybody like that, do we?.(Get me a pair while you’re at it, if you please. I’m having the same problem.)
Star Wars: Wipe entire planets and billions of people.The birth of Christ: give you own life to save the lives of billions of people..Makes perfect sense to me..(Actually, Christmas or Winter Solstice or Whatever is whatever it is to you. The kids are happier. The parents are happier, after all they are about to have the uninterrupted school break to be with their sweetlings. .Every day is a good day if you let it be. Every day is a bad day if that’s all you can see.)
May the farce be with you!
But the Christian story makes all kinds of sense.
Better find a restroom, Bernice!
And now they have Marvel touring in arenas, with Falcon flying around, dangling on strings!(http://www.marveluniverselive.com/)
I think Chewbacca almost had an album out and a worldwide tour of his own, too….though he may have cancelled after a bit of stagefright. Oh, well- guess that’s how the Wookie crumbles…..
And time marches (or flies) onward, to a new beginning, in a galaxy right here and now…
At least it’s not the “Star Wars Holiday Special”!!
