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.

It’s Like Looking Into A Mirror


Cynthia:  Oh, Marcy, Freddy sent me this illustration by Gemma Correll and said it was a picture of me. Ponytail, spectacles, and perpetual glass of wine included.

Marcy n Me

Cynthia:  He may be right, too. I think I just did this at a 4th of July BBQ.

Marcy:  You talk to other cats at parties?

Cynthia (embarrassed):  Maybe.

Marcy:  That’s really pathetic, Cindy.

Cynthia:  But sometimes I don’t WANT to talk about politics, Kim Kardashian, movie stars, or the weather.

Marcy:  That’s what humans talk about at parties?

Cynthia:  All the time, Marcy, all the time.

Marcy:  Pathetic.
