|merry happy by Gemma Correll|
Cynthia: Gemma Correll has been on a roll this month, with her witty Christmas puns and terribly truthful/funny Christmas illustrations.
Marcy: Why would she sit on a roll? Her name is Gemma, not Miss Muffet.
Cynthia: Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet.
Marcy: She sat on a muffin. Same difference.
Cynthia: A tuffet is a footstool, Marcy.
Marcy: No, only toads sit on those. Miss Muffet is a girl. You’re thinking of the Frog Prince.
Cynthia decides to start over again.
Cynthia: I mean that Gemma Correll has been hitting it out of the ballpark this month with her clever Christmas cartoons. They are so on the nose. They’re perfect.
Marcy: She really shouldn’t hit herself on the nose. That hurts and wait – IS THAT A MOUSE?
Marcy violently lunges towards the computer monitor and attacks it until it crashes to the ground.
Marcy and Cynthia stare at the demolished computer.
Marcy: Yeah so that wasn’t a real mouse.
Marcy: So I guess you’ll be asking Santa for a new computer for Christmas tomorrow.
Cynthia: Looks like it.
Marcy: I hear they’re giving 10% off at Target.
Cynthia: You don’t say.
Marcy: Oh, I do say. Pick me up some Friskies while you’re there.
