"nothing communicates the peace and love of the Christmas season better than a rifle hanging from a Christmas tree."

Okay, you almost owed me a new computer because I almost spat out my soda laughing out loud while reading this line.

Ah, the good-old days...and, remember when you could buy toys that launched little pieces that could be ingested by toddlers or poke their eyes out? What fun!

LOL! Sorry for almost messing up your computer!

Yeah, I remember those great old (dangerous) toys. Of course, that was also back when our parents didn't bother using the seat belts in our cars and regularly played something called "Lawn Jarts", which involved tossing sharp metal darts and sticking them into the grass. Let's just say those were more "carefree" times and leave it at that, shall we?

I still can't get over that illustration of the dad sighting-in the BB rifle in the store. I think even by those "carefree" standards back in the day, that still might have been pushing it.

I can't help looking at the picture of the guy sighting the rifle in the store without imagining a thought balloon where he's saying "Hmmm...There's the wife in housewears...All it would take is one shot, and the nagging would stop...Just one shot..."

Mark Engblom

LOL! Yes, that definitely could have been part of that odd scenario. I also like how the clerk isn't the least bit concerned about dad taking aim at the other customers. He's busy telling junior about the many joys and benefits of owning a Daisy BB rifle!
