More Holiday Bun Toons! YAY!

Here I am, wearing my fine Christmas Hat.

I don’t care that’s it’s been a lousy year.  I’m having Christmas season all month, and you can’t stop me.    It’s my favourite month of the year, mostly because of the cheery X-Mas festivities we do up here in the Great White North that might be unfamiliar to our southern neighbours.  Let me explain…

Who didn’t know Santa was a Canuck?  Show of hands?

Ty the Guy OUT!

Is it just me, or is more going on, metaphorically, with that broom than I want to know about.  And where did all those snowballs come from?

And now…for your BONUS Christmas Story…

Holiday Bun Toons! YAY!

The turkeys are dead.  It’s about time.

It’s the first weekend after Bleak Friday.  Across North America, people are joyously celebrating the holiday spirit.

Or not.

Take heart, the year has more than four weeks left.  There’s time for mischief and destruction yet undreamt.

Ty The Guy OUT!

For a brief shining moment, I was going to do a Bun Toon about Mrs. Brady and Fidel Castro trapped in a gladiatorial arena, knife fighting for all eternity, but in the end, I recalled that Florence Henderson had family, and there’s boundaries of taste.

Of course, Castro and Henderson did have one other thing in common, besides checking out on the same day.

They were both comic book characters, of course.

Is it just me, or does Susan Olson look like Betty White on this cover?

Okay, we ALL see that this one looks like Betty White, no?

Go Forth, Young Bunny! YAY!

This year’s #4 position, BOTH the most popular and the least popular, come from the last couple of weeks.  It was a wild swing in readership from one week to the next this December, but that’s standard around here.  You fickle monsters make me paint my backside and dance, and sometimes you love me, and sometimes it’s head first into the mud holes.

Not that I’m complaining, mind you.  I know how complaining comic book artists get treated on the internet….

For example…

THE LAST CRUSADER

For those who don’t recall this tempestuous teapot, back at the beginning of December, a comic book artist (of my generation) named Pat Broderick had a word or two to say about cosplayers ruining conventions for people who turned out to be the same age, height and weight as Pat Broderick.  It was something about women in skimpy outfits blocking aisles, not earning their place, and generally being on his lawn when he clearly wanted to get them off his lawn.

Pat’s probably a wonderful guy, and the backlash was more about how inelegantly he complained about getting older, than any real animosity towards him, but for god’s sake, don’t wear any odd hats around the man…he’s nervous.

Our #4 LEAST favourite Bun Toon was the following week.   My fame and fortune crumbled and died in a scant seven days, and all because I cut off Santa’s foot.

the christmas the elves forget

I’ve learned my lesson.  No more hurting Santa Claus.  To make it up to my emotionally damaged readers, here’s one of my MOST popular Christmas Bun Toons from a couple of years ago, in which I do not hurt Santa at all, except for one or two moments in the “agonizer”.

See you tomorrow, for the THIRD most and least popular Bun Toons of the year….neither of which will be from the month of December, I promise.

Ty the Guy OUT!

And a Merry Blue Year! YAY!

I didn’t want to be the one to break this story, but there’s been a lot of controversy lately, and only the actual truth will put the rumours to rest.

north pole babylon websizeI’m sorry if there were any kids reading this.  But we all have to grow up and face the real world some time.

Now, today’s amusing ponderable…

The winter solstice is upon us soon, and, unless that Mayan Calendar is to be believed, Christmas is leaping up quicker than a tiger at a steak convention.  For a half-Jewish atheist from Canada, it’s a special time of a year for me and my family.  So I share…

websizeYes Virginia, there is a Prince of Darkness.  But he’s not worth the bicycle.

I wonder if the snow falling on this Bun Toon will put out the fire in Lucifer’s heart?  We can only hope.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your BONUS Satan Comic Book Christmas!

son of satan 1It is not well known, but the SON OF SATAN comic book produced by Marvel Comics in the mid-seventies was the result of a typo.  It was originally going to be marketed as “SON OF SANTA”…

Holiday Bun Toons! YAY!

For the Great Pumpkin commands me!

Ever since I was a child, the great debate was about which holiday was the best all year.   To me, it was never close.

It’s not even close.
