JEFBOT.105_A Christmas Bowon December 23, 2008 at 2:56 am
This one’s for all you JEFbot readers who are Lord of the Rings (and/or Legolas) fans.
Over the weekend, I was fortunate enough to attend a party where Santa made an appearance. I’m pretty sure the adults were just as ecstatic as the children. Check it out:
Great strip! I AM a fan – of Jefbot and Lord of The Rings! Thanks for the Santa photos.
thanks, jAnonymous – i’m happy you’re a fan of both! glad you liked the photos, too – isn’t it amazing how the kids just gravitated toward Santa in those pics? i think i was scared of him when i was a kid.
Another awesome strip! And I would have to say that the adults seemed more excited to be in the presence (and in the lap) of Santa. I would have to say that Cornfather makes one of *the best* Santa’s I have ever seen. Can’t wait for The Christmas Bat! (And possibly some pics of it’s nest in the fam’s tree? =P) Happy Holidays to you, Jefbot and Jefbot’s family!
happy holidays to you, too, SoankyMcBubbles!!! we only just put up the Christmas tree at my parent’s, so the Christmas Bat hasn’t had time to spin his tinsel nest, but when he does, i’ll be sure and take some photos! oh, and i think much of “The Cornfather’s” santa suit was a costume for a short film he did, which is why it looks so good.
Wow — Michael even has had his EYEBROWS colored!
Great strip, Jeff. Nerd rule!
i tried to tell you: michael’s serious when it comes to santa, Stan! and yes, nerds do pretty much rule.
Dress the Cornfather more like Father Christmas (http://imagecache2.allposters.com/images/pic/BEN/AB0328~Father-Christmas-Posters.jpg) and you have your Gandalf.
jefbot’s enthusiasm in the 2nd panel is really really excellent. The extra thick outline works so well and it may seem dumb to say, but you consistently get better at his shirt.
well, we’d have a rather large gandalf… d’oh! back on the naughty list! 😉 but yeah, maybe CornFather Christmas will have to make an appearance someday. and man, i spend a lot of time (probably too much) on the wrinkles and shading of jefbot’s shirt and am constantly tweaking about with how to draw it, so you noticing something you like and calling it out is much appreciated and not dumb at all.
i can’t even say what i’m thinking……
uh-oh. yeah, tell me at Christmas, sis.
“wrong” Excellent strip! I love the reactions, they’re so funny! Great job! And Merry Christmas (if that’s still okay to say?.?.?)
gee, i hope so. let’s find out: Merry Christmas, funnyshaffer!!!
Fabulous. Geek humor rules!
Much love and best wishes for an amazing holiday! I wish I could sit on Santa’s lap!
geek humor SO rules! you have an amazing holiday too, Shari. and i’m sure sitting on Santa’s lap can be arranged. 🙂
HA! One of my favorite ones yet. Excellent! Merry Christmas to you and the Cornfather
thanks, dude! a very merry Christmas to you and yours!
i echo john’s comment. this one made me actually LOL.
sweet! an LOL always makes me feel good.
Merry Christmas, Jefbot and to all of your readers. I think these webcomics alone are plenty to get you off of the naughty list. This one is merrily funny, bot! I love the Santa costume but I love your “elf” costume even MORE. Really funny, man. And thanks for posting the Santa pics with me, er…I mean, with Santa and all the kiddies. Ho! Ho! Ho!
yippee! now that i’m off the “naughty” list (and hopefully onto the “nice”) santa can bring me that new Apple 24″ Cinema Display i’ve had my eye on! thanks, Michael!
hey! For Gondor—!!! 🙂 btw, nice pic~
for geekdom!!! and glad you like the pics, alecho. i wanted to show the magic of the Cornfather’s Santa in full effect!
Hah! I love it. Please tell me you have an elf costume? I want pictures.
i have a pair of elf/vulcan ears, Muppetmaker (who doesn’t!?), but not a full costume… yep. that’s my story and you can’t make me say otherwise.
This is *SO* wrong and yet *SO* funny! Merry Christmas and a Happy 2009 to all the ‘bots (Yes, that includes Xinda too!) and my fellow JEFbot fans!
“*SO* wrong and yet *SO* funny!” sounds like a recipe for awesome, reynard61! and thanks – i’ll pass along your Christmas wishes to my family (actually, they might just read them here)! hope you and your loved ones have a great Christmas and 2009, too!!!
I was Santa at a school once, I asked “Is this because I’m fat and hairy?” and they where like “No….it’s because you’re…jolly?” It was fun anyway 🙂
ha! glad you had fun but i hope you put them all on the Naughty List anyway, Kevin I. 🙂
you totally just got a hout out from Wil Wheaton on his twitter, lol.
Funny stuff as always, I wasn’t sure if you where going to go LOTR or Link (he looks like an elf to me!)
wil’s been a great friend to JEFbot, jhorsley3, and i’m thankful for his shout-out. and yeah, link definitely works, too!
Here via a link from Wil Wheaton, lol. I lol’d, being a huge LOTR fan. And, great photos XD
happy you lol’d, StormKitten and thanks for following wil’s link!!! 🙂
Holy synchronicity, Batman! There’s a similar line in the first of the stories on the current epsiode at Starshipsofa.com, although not as obviously LotR inspired.
the collective unconscious strikes again, Church! i’ll be checking out Starshipsofa soon.
Merry Christmas to All and to All a good Fight. I mean Life!!!
Especially you little bro… and don’t forget to bring your butter knife!!!
just had Christmas breakfast with you, xin – i brought a butter knife but you brought a steak knife!!! 🙁
Followed Wil’s twitter over, very funny stuff! Now I have another site to keep up on….thanks, I think.
thanks, akialyn! i’m glad you’re here and hope you keep on keepin’ up! man, i’m going to hafta send wil one heck of a thank you card!
HAHAHAHAHA! I’d do the same thing, but I’d look more like a dwarf than an elf. Great Strip man.
well, i suppose you could shout the same thing, Eptha! 😉
hey, did you give cornfathers his present, did he like it? (was it funny or only funny to me?) also, your lucky we had brunch first or i woulda stabbed you for opening everybodys presents before they did! it made me so mad!!! ps. did you spray michael in the face w/the reich guard?
he liked it, but was kinda horrified by it at the same time. and no, i didn’t spray him in the face with the deodorant. you can do that the next time you see him. 😉
Dude wheres the friday strip?
oop, sorry, late! it’s up now!
hahaha..santa adjusting the belt….
Nice nerd strip. I’m sure it was funny.
Kevin 1 stole my line!!!! is that why women ask to sit on my lap????
the girl in cornsanta01 looks exacly like my little sister 0_0
Lucky children! Why do I have to live in GA?! And I’m diggin’ the Legolas outfit. Do you actually have one???
^^, You look very cute as Legolas
I am glad someone was willing to sooner or later clear things up on this. I have contemplated it many times before. 🙂
You could just see that one coming 😀 offically made me a fan of Jefbot!
haha OMG amazing! haha
