oh, how thoughtful of not asking to use Mrs. Degroot’s necklace
I have to assume GnK have a reason for this sudden, multiple occurances of undisciplined behavior by Shannon.
Her brattiness is getting old.
How do I have the sinking feeling that this is gonna turn on Luann since Luann is the one that was supposed to be watching Shannon? It’d be one of those things if it was just covered in a little frosting, but that necklace was 100% cut to fit, by the looks of it…
Whitewashing the Luann characters?
Yesterday (actually earlier this evening) I wondered by Ben’s Wife’s soon had gingerbread (dark brown) colored faces with all the others (excepting TJ) had white faces. Today we see that the Frank and Nancy cookies have gingerbread colored faces (I was going to make a joke about them being in blackface (and — see —I did)). So was yesterday a colossal coloring mistake? Or not mistake at all?
“Hello, Jonah Daytona? Nancy DeGroot speaking … where would you like me to send the dentist bill for fixing my tooth which cracked because your daughter … hello? Yes, I mean Shannon … hello? Hello?”
I bet Dads eating HAIR! Makes sense Moms eating a necklace.
Shannon is such an unsocialized and inconsiderate brat the comic strip is not even believable anymore. Brattiness is not all that funny either. If any child was this bad – she’d almost need to be a sociopath.
I have a feeling you won’t like the answer Ms. DeGroot. :/
Pleeeease let this lead to a conversation with Shannon about not helping herself to whatever she pleases without asking first. But since it’s a Saturday strip I doubt it.
Ok I highly doubt that that’s a real necklace. It’s to small to fit around anyone’s neck and I don’t think Shannon could have cut a real necklace with kitchen scissors. The little clasp on the end leads me to believe that that’s a pearl bracelet. Better keep a close eye on her Luann! Sometimes kids get ideas that sound perfectly feasible in their heads and act without realizing the consequences. They’re lucky the oven and bracelet are still usable.
But seriously, how on earth did NOBODY realize that that’s real jewelry. Were Luann and Bernice distracted while making and cooking? There really aren’t a lot of edible things that look like pearls.
Shannon probably put a bunch of plastic pieces from her Operation game inside the cookies, so everyone could have bones and organs.
Skin tone continuity is the bane of this comic strip. Yesterday Frank and Nancy were light tone. Today the pale frosting seems to have been removed. I blame Puddles!
Hmmm. A pull – chain from the lamp. Frank – if you pull the chain, it will turn Nancy on.
No se puede culpar a Shannon, solo intentaba hacer las galletas lo más reales posibles.
That kid gets passed around and handed off like a baton in a relay race. And that “necklace” reminds me of the little chain that was part of the flushing mechanism in those old style toilets.
I have a niece who at that age was like Shannon. However, she became a resposible adult.
And the day after Christmas, the Shannon haters return.
She’s a plot device, so we might as well get used to it.
Still thinking upon the significance of yesterday’s cartoon, where Shannon – er, G&K – conveniently neglected to have a Jonah cookie. Clearly, they are toying with us, teasing us, in that it appears official, Jonah is no longer in the comic strip. Shannon’s status is unclear, but appears to be in non-temporary custody of Brad and Toni.
It has gotten to the point that I’m assuming that Jonah does nothing; Shannon is 24/365 in B&T’s care, and I sincerely doubt that he’s providing any money anymore, either.
Luann is in this story because, when Toni needs a break, Luann is the one who gets her. Since Shannon seems to like Bernice, maybe the wealth will be shared in future…
But as for Jonah, I’m thinking he’s “stick a fork in it” done.
Preoccupation with the color of cookies? The times they have a changed. Sheesh.
Shannon created the Gingerbread characters that were not accurate, but she think that Frank and Nancy are her members of the Shannon’s family. Unfortunately, Shannon has problems with boundaries.
MMM! Sho Mush Froshting (So much frosting? )
Ah-oh. Her imagination got the best of her.
Yesterday instead of a group picture as we usually get in holiday serial strips, due to influential role modeling, the only group was in. Shannon cookies.
Hope Frank’s cookie doesn’t start coughing.
Ah did you forget Luann burnt the cookies? When Shannon was decorating the messy Luann cookie.
that kid is trouble
Now should We Warn the other future “recipients” of Shannon’s “cookies?”
You know. That they might contain “foreign substances?”
Nah. Let ‘Em find out the HARD way. Especially Old Smiley.
Besides, We DON’T want to stifle this dear sweet child’s “creativity,” now do We?
”Oh, LOOK! Dear little Shannon is re-gifting! Isn’t that (GAG/VOMIT) Sweet?”
And be SURE to stay tuned for New Year’s Eve when Dear Sweet Shannon grabs 4 and 20 blackbirds and bakes them in a pie.
One of Nancy Pelosi’s pearl necklace collection?
Remember Nancy, sometimes, ignorance is a blessing. Shannon is such an unpredictable character ♡! I really like it ♡. And all the DeGroots love her so much ♡♡♡!
You probably should not post anymore. Your comments are racist and offensive. This point of the the strip today has nothing to do with race or skin color. How you are able to subvert the message of this comic twist to race and skin color is disturbing.
A special surprise is in every bite.
Like I said previously…enough of this kid. Greg, in Vegas, they would say that “you’re making your point, the HARD Way”
Back in the day (70s -early 80s), I was a comic book fan. In those days it was considered by many to be a virtue to come up with a believable explanation for a plot hole or continuity error. Being pre-internet, we would send our plot fixes in to the letters column in the back of the comic. I had several lettered published. In honor of 1970s Tammy (who I haven’t seen in a long, long time), I offer this solution to the cookie color debate: Luann, Bernice and Shannon made both sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies to decorate.
Announcing the tension replacement for Ann Eiffel.
Hope that’s not Nancy’s real hair.
and again shannon out of control and no one is doing anything to watch/control/make her mindless father pay
All of you are missing the point. The color of the cookies has nothing to do with the strip. The strip once again has Shanon doing something that should not be tolerated. She got into someone’s personal items and stole a bracelet. Her behavior has long since stopped being cute kid stuff. Would you tolerate Leslie punching Gunther in every strip and laugh it off? She may have just ruined a keepsake or a valuable item they are no longer in position to replace.
She stole it from Ann Eiffel.
God most of you are a bunch of old farts, jeez!
I feel sorry for Shannon. She is with Luann’s family instead of her own father for Christmas. I know she’s with people who love her, but her dad should at least make an appearance.
A lot of speculation on a ‘toon and its characters?
Poor Nancy-grandma in training.
Yes… It’s just a comic and I get that. The kick is reading the comments. So many complaints about the child. My thought was “who was watching the kid?” How did she add non edible material to the cookies? I guess she just had run of the kitchen/house and decorated the cookies all by herself.
Shout out to Schrodinger’s Dog: I feel your pain. I’m sure you’ve worn out your keyboard responding to all the folks that think Shannon stole Nancy’s jewelry for the cookies.
Clearly, today was simply a punchline for the week’s events. A weak punchline, I admit. A weak punchline for the last week of a lame year.
Hey, it’s 2020! What else did you expect?
Maybe we had a different comic colorist on Christmas? They were gingerbread cookies before and after the holiday. Regardless, it seems Shannon’s “oops” behaviour has struck again. Wonder who’s jewelry box she’s been into? Guess her heart’s in the right place, but her hands are not. Lucky Nancy didn’t break a tooth or crown on it!
At least the “is it Gunther or Frank?” cookie question has been answered.
The cuteness was ruined in the end by the brattiness.
At the beginning Luann says Here’s one for you and your dad. But we never see a completed Jonah cookie. I think that says something important. Shannon never made a cookie for him.
I don’t think Nancy is to happy.
Panel 2: Nancy accidentally sits on a corncob..
So now the Brat is also a jewellery thief? How can I not love the “Shannon” character?
Shannon, you’re FIRED!
1. Lamp chain was used for necklace.2. Someone discipline that kid.3. Explain Jonah’s absence once and for all. Though I don’t relish having Brad & Toni saddled with her.4. Where is Jack?
Sometimes the colorist makes a mistake.
She said she put in Lots of Hair.
There was this Hairbrush …
Color comments aside—what IS that thing on the cookie?
Reading some of the replies and comments on here from people screaming, “It’s only a comic strip!!!” makes me very curious why they would even be down here reading comments at all.
I’m always baffled by that annoyance some people have of others discussing the actions, appearance, and behaviors of comic strip characters down here in the comments section. It’s like going to a book club meeting and daring to be offended that people are discussing and debating characters in a fictional book. “OMG, everyone, it’s only a book! Why are you talking about the behaviors of fictional characters??? OMG!!!” – That person would more than likely be kicked out of said book club by the members…but I digress.
Maybe someone of the opinion that “this is ONLY a comic strip” can please enlighten me?
