North Pole Faces

He's been like this since kids started Tweeting their Christmas  Wish Lists

The times are a changin'. You'll likely see cartoons elsewhere and on this blog site having some fun with the dust ups that happen when yuletide traditions 'go modern'. Stephen Colbert lampooned all the talk of "updating" Santa to keep up with the times ( "they" took away his pipe and made him lose a few pounds).

   Maybe as a child you wrote to Santa and sent it by mail to Santa's workshop at the North Pole. I wonder if kids write letters like that now. Yes, our traditions change as the times change.  Then again it is said, "Nostalgia just ain't what it used to be."        

   With change comes incongruity. The cartoon editor of the New Yorker magazine, Robert Mankoff, says you'll find funny where incongruity lives. If this maxim holds, there's plenty of funny to go around.  OK Bob, I've cited you in my blog, it's only fair you run some of my cartoons in your magazine.
