Just a pair of right-facing silent penultimate panels today:

Arlo & Janis by Jimmy Johnson
Barkeater Lake by Corey Pandolph

Dilbert is off the watch today. On another day it might count, but I'm being nice for Christmas, and daily Dilbert rarely ever appears here.

And that brings me to today's Christmas pleasantry. Dilbert is drawn with the finesse of a drunk gorilla, the characters are two-dimensional and interchangeable, and it's immensely popular among some very annoying people. But it really is one of the most consistently funny comic strips out there. The gags are lean and swift and the pace never meanders. It's consistently three quick panels of rapid-fire funny.

Christmas nice #3: Dilbert's no classic, but it sure is funny sometimes.
