Secret Santa (formerly Reindeer Games)

Cidu Bill on Dec 17th 2012

If you’ve ever worked in an office, or lived in a college dorm, you’ve probably encountered the Secret Santa phenomenon: you’re given the name of a random person, and told to buy a present for him or her.

And that’s what several dozen CIDU members inadvertently signed up for: they were each assigned a comic strip character (from one of their favorite strips), and told to choose the perfect holiday gift (with a $25 spending limit).

In no special order, this is what you came up with:

And does it help that the first one is actually a billboard put up by a church, or that the ad agency responsible for the second one is run by a Jewish man?

Chanukah Observation

Cidu Bill on Dec 1st 2010

(no, not the usual line about almost all Jewish holidays sharing the same theme of “They tried to kill us, we won, let’s eat”)

Okay, this would kind of make sense if the family in Baby Blues were Jewish. But they’re not. Or if they are, this seems to be the first time it’s been referenced in close to 20 years. And their last name is MacPherson.

I actually do have a theory, but it’s way too convoluted to be what Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott had in mind.
