We'll try again next year. 

Now, let's review the week's cartoon offerings.
He was happy to hear that the noodles are made of ancient grains.
Old Leather Apron was inspired after reading The Life-Threatening Magic of Tidying Up. I have to wonder whether this cartoon will make sense to anyone reading it five years from now.
The TV network logo parodied in this panel was replaced in 2005, but the old design fit into our layout better than the current one.

Frankenstein's monster is one of our favorite recurring characters, and he'll undoubtedly turn up in future gags.
This treatment method is not recommended for human patients.

For even more smartypants commentary, point your browsing device to Dan Piraro's blog, where he also shows off a beautiful Sunday page that was almost not publishable.

Bonus Track
