    You Know, MAYBE it’s that sweater, but to Me Gunther appears to be getting thinner each day. Perhaps the lads used up their monthly ration of food when they “weaponized” it the other Month to fight over Tiffany. Irma’s Thanksgiving leftovers may be the first decent meal the lads have had in over a month.

    And if the point of this Arc to fill Les with a bit of “Christmas Cheer,” well it doesn’t seem to be working, yet.

    Irma should break out the “Spiked Egg Nog.”

    But at least Gunther is Happy for change, for however brief a period. And That’s SOMETHING!

    Yes, it’s a comic and not real life, BUT maybe the Fuse will have a Christmas party for all these characters and Tiffany can introduce her Dad and “friend” Ann to Al and Les and Bernice and all the party goers who attended lingerie at the party.(run on sentence) Wishful thinking/ Karma?

    Unbeknownst to Irma, Al has been storing a few things in the storage unit also. Those two boxes, Garlands 1 and Garlands 2, are the remains of the Garland brothers from a rival mob.

    .

    Uh – oh. Looks like Greg’s name is on another box.

    Ever since Luann and cohorts graduated, this strip has concentrated on college-age young adults who behave as if they were still in the ninth grade. Today, Gunther reverts to kindergarten instead.

    I have a small tree, a santa figure, and two glass trees. I put out the sparkle LED projector and some fairy lights. I have the nativity scene out all year as I have nowhere to put it and it is a nice pewter set. I don’t get the 250,000 lights, 400 figurines and 60 foot santa ballon.

    So WHAT? G-man sang, “It’s a Holly, Jolly Christmas!”, instead of “Have…”… A lot of people in real life get the actual song lyrics wrong in the first place! It doesn’t mean they don’t feel what they feel, as they do! They go ahead and express it out loud!

    FOUR DAYS!!??!? There is NO WAY I’d spend four days putting up Christmas decorations. Or any other holiday decorations for that matter.

    And if that’s what it takes to make Lil Gunthie and smother mommie feel “jolly” then I feel kind of sorry for them. They can’t celebrate and enjoy Christmas without burying themselves under a lot of fake holly and tinsel?

    It is nice seeing Gunther happier than typical of late. It is nice seeing Les apparently going with the flow and participating.

    I still find the current drawing style of Gunther a bit discontinuous, though… Greg is drawing him to look more and more childlike or perhaps more feminine this week. I do not think either pathway is Greg’s intent… but that is how the drawings appear to me. If this becomes the “new norm” for Gunther’s appearance…. I think it does not bode well for his overall growth and development as an adult character.

    I had a high school buddy with a bizarre obsessive hatred of Burl Ives (bizarre because this was the 1980’s and he wasn’t political). He’d trot out a stilted “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas” impersonation any ol’ time of the year.

    For the comments about Gunther’s continual change in appearance, I wondered, too, why he would appear so much younger and skinnier. (He IS supposed to be in college, after all, not middle school.) But I don’t see him as looking like he did in high school. Just take a look at him in Luann Againn, with the big heavy glasses that those of us who were called ‘geeks’ typically wore. He doesn’t look like that, but he also doesn’t look like a college guy anymore…

    And just because he’s skinnier and younger looking doesn’t mean the Evanses are going to have him discover that he’s gay. That’s the same, frankly, as saying he looks like he’s a particular religion. Gay people don’t all look the same way any more than people of a particular religion all look alike.

    I remember a great “Ziggy” cartoon: Drivers are bumper to bumper on the freeway and they are all scowling (except Ziggy). Ziggy sees a bumper sticker ahead that says, “Honk if You’re Happy.” Ziggy cheerfully responds with “Toot Toot.” A big guy with a scowl gets out of the truck with a hammer and smashes Ziggy’s hood in. In the last frame we now see Ziggy driving on the freeway – scowling like everybody else

    I peeked in at this comic for the first time in a week or two, and sighed. Like (I perceive) an increasing number, I am by now tired of this blatantly ridiculous premise: the admirable but pathetic Gunther sharing a residence with the trashy slob Knox. They’re not Oscar Madison and Felix Ungar. It makes one almost miss Bwad, Toni and their bratty daughter.
