It appears jefbot just needed the proper “motivating factor” to shed the funk he’s been in, and get to jumping barrels. Many of you predicted and/or requested this action in the comments, probably because it is universally known that smoochin’ is the most recommended and effective remedy to stressin’. At least 9 out of 10 doctors recommend it, last I heard.

Speaking of comments, can I get a “what what” and then congratulate all of you commenters for hitting over 200 comments two strips ago, and nearly 300 comments in the last strip!? While I understand not all the comments are about the comic strip necessarily and my replies make up a good percentage of those comments, I still say it’s quite an achievement and give you all virtual fist bumps and high fives. Maybe even a chest bump or two.

Oh, and lest I forget: Merry Christmas Eve today and Merry Christmas tomorrow! And if you don’t celebrate those occasions, I still wish you Merry something, whatever that may be. Hanukkah? Kwanzaa? Winter Solstice? Festivus? Wookie Life Day *shudder*? Let me know!
