It’s here everyone… December 1! Tim Eiter donned his first Christmas sweater of the year earlier this day, and Cassidy Reinhard sported her own for a quick injection of Holiday spirit in Business Law this morning (a subject that works all too hard to deprive the world of Christmas– err, Holiday spirit). Yes, it’s beginning to feel a bit like Christmas, and now the time for my own contribution has come.
Some of you may recall last December (hopefully all of you recall some part of it) when I sent out to the world a collection of 23 Christmas graphs. They said it could not be done when I began, but I said yes it could! And though some were truly terrible– cough, that one that was mostly just pictures of Jonesy, cough– I made it through. But rest assured loyal readers, I won’t stop there. No, this year I plan to bring you something new:

There it is, just over there.
So without further ado, here is comic numero uno.
Some of you may recall that I showed in this post that Elf was unequivocally the best Christmas movie ever made. However, as this comic points out, there is a certain factor of realism that is curiously absent from Elf. Let’s look a little more closely.

I rest my case. And naturally, without that extra push from the Christmas Cheer that an adorable Ms. Deschanel is able to illicit in the cold, cold hearts of Hollywood New Yorkers, Santa and Buddy the Elf would inevitably be captured by the ringwraiths or whatever they were chasing them through central park (which raises the question, what’s Sauron’s beef with Santa?). Next thing you know, the Christmas duo is in Gunatanamo facing terrorism charges and Jack Skellington steps in as the natural backup for “Santy Claws.”
Bottom line? Thank goodness for the new girl.
Oh and for further reference that WAS Zooey Deschanel in my drawing. Just to clarify:
