After That Big Thanksgiving Dinner…

Other fun customs from around the world…

—In Upper Crustovia it’s considered bad manners to spit in someone’s drink — while they’re looking.

—In Lower Crustovia it’s considered bad manners to knife someone in the back while they’re spitting in someone’s drink — unless it’s your drink.

—In Still Lower Crustovia it’s considered bad manners to not compliment someone on their knife wounds.

Turkey Turmoil

Happy Thanksgiving!

At the risk of being serious, I’ve got to say that I am insanely grateful to everyone who reads Last Kiss. Knowing that so many of you share my twisted sense of humor make it all worthwhile.

I also want to give a big thanks to my Pilgrim-painting pal Mike Pascale for today’s art and the basic idea for the gag. As soon as I read it, I said, “Wow! That’s no turkey!”

Meanwhile, back in 1962…
See the original 1962 art and dialogue for today’s Last Kiss webcomic here.

PILGRIM MAN: But…you said to “grab a breast!”

—spicy food.

—spicy women (especially my wife, Shelagh.)
