A Gemma Correll Christmas

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.

Cynthia:  Nope.

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.

      Merry Christmas, Jenni! To you and your family! Hope you are having a wonderful holiday today!

      No, the computer is fine. I engage in poetic license a lot. Love that phrase and concept. ha.

    Marcy, you are so funny and so bad. You need to find a source of income to help pay for the computer you destroyed.

      Thank you for both compliments. I try very hard on both accounts.

      I still don't know why Friskies has not asked me to be their SpokesCat yet. I would be much better than stupid Grumpy Cat.

    To capture the scents of the season around here, I need a festive candle that smells of burnt popcorn.

      Uh oh. Sounds like someone overpopped the popcorn!
