What are the haps my friends

December 29th, 2006: That's it for 2006, everybody! The next Dinosaur Comic will show up on Monday, January 1st, 2007. Holy! We're all living in the future, did you know that?

Owen sent me this image me made of every time T-Rex says THE S WORD in panel six. You can read the comic like a narrative, and it's, in Owen's words, "a depressing story... the saddest and angriest clip show ever."

Mom I don't swear that often it's only when I think it will make people laugh with my cartoon dinosaurs.

Also, the young and talented Sarah sent me in pictures of this adorable Professor Science doll she made out of an old shirt. Articulated legs! He is the cutest ever. Thanks Sarah!


Hey, my new book Romeo and/or Juliet comes out in less than a month! It's my choose-your-own-path version of the Shakespeare play featuring tons of great illustrations. To celebrate - and to also convince you to purchase it! - I've posted the first page, and every day we vote on which option to follow. We're doing a LET'S PLAY ROMEO AND/OR JULIET and you should totally join us!
