Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for December 25, 2016
Pig: Hello, little boy...and what do you want for Christmas this year? A truck? A game? Boy: I was thinking, Santa...Could you make people a little less greedy? And maybe less mean? And could you make some of them a little more understanding? And have them be kind to animals. And not destroy the planet. And oh yeah. No more shootings. Pig: Well, I... Boy: I know. You can't. So how 'bout a big "We'll just hope for the best" hug? Pig: And Merry Christmas! Woman: I want that kid for Christmas. Boy 2: Gimme an x-box.
