    Bill, why “almost?” Seems throroughly synchro to me!

    The Buni seems creepier than the Lio to me. Lio’s just a creepy kid who built a snowman around a skeleton. Buni and the yeti brought their snowman to life with a hat, and left it on him as he melted. The terrifying agony the snowman must have been going through….*shudder*

    Because, CaroZ, by my own rule, synchronicity requires them to have been published on the same day. If I give myself permission to break that rule, it seems only fair to acknowledge it.

    Kamino Neko, those are snowman bones in Lio. Check out their shape and look at the teeth.

    Additionally, the Buni snowman could have been brought to life by the hat, the snowman doesn’t have legs, so I’m not sure he’s actually moving… although it looks like his head is in a different position in each frame.

    Ah - didn’t see the date labels! I thought you meant the concepts weren’t quite close enough to qualify.

    Is the Buni cartoon also a global warming reference? Don’t Yetis live where it cold and frozen all year? But in the third panel, it’s warm and sunny.

    Am I the only one hung up on why the snowmen have skeletons in the first place? Is that the joke, or did the artists not think readers would understand a melted snowman without a skeleton?

    Yes, the joke is that snow men have skeletons. Not sure why it was funny enough for two different strips…
