Christmas Eve With Manic Mom

Mom: "AAAAARGGH! THAT'S NOT HOW YOU DO IT!!!"
"Whoever taught you to decorate like that!!???"

"LOOK! I had every one of these ornaments numbered and arranged so that everything would be perfectly color coordinated!!
"GGAWWWWD! I have to do everything around here! Lemme show you!"

"Remember, the man upstairs can see everything we do! We gotta impress Him!!!"
Cut to the Prince Of Heaven peeking in on everyone's business on His flatscreen TV.
Jesus: "Y'know after a couple thousand of these birthdays, it's pretty hard to impress me. I dig that blue hair though."

Mom: "Here now, watch a pro!"
"Ta Da! Now that's how you decorate the Christmas Hippie!"

Wow, that almost looks like some of Katie's style. The blue hair is impressive. Hope you had a Merry One!

It's refreshing to see a cartoon that's not afraid to make fun of the mom. It seems so many cartoons (and advil commercials) always make the husband really dumb and the wife the completely balanced one.

Love the hippy dad though, of course (like I'm seeing myself in the future).
