Sure in a Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by three Spirits/Ghosts. What if the spirits that were foretold by his deceased partner Jacob Marley turned out to be alcohol? May you all have a very spirited Christmas (or whatever you celebrate).
The Spirits of Christmas
May the spirits of Christmas be with you!
and also with you.
Something tells me Scrooge had more than three sprit visitations.
Well he did start having hallucinations.
Ha – I never thought of those spirits. Very powerful spirits, they made the room spin for me once. Ok maybe more than once.
But did your life flash before your eyes?
Hahaha. This kind of spirit makes for a happier Scrooge!
Merry Christmas Bearman 🙂
The spirits of Jack, Jim and Jose!
They will all leave you with the runs
May your belly be full of Christmas spirit all year long! 😀
Here’s to a Merry Christmas to you, bearman!
Bwahahahahahahaha. Works for me.
Have a fabulous day and a Christmas filled with your choice of spirits. 🙂
Too much and you’ll be bowing to the toilet spirit.
That is called praying to the porcelain gods
Absinthe hadn’t been outlawed yet in Victorian England, and was probably the most plentiful and cheapest spirit on the market aside from fortified wines. Of course, it would be obvious if we had the missing chapter where Dickens writes about Scrooge moving to the English countryside and becoming an impressionist painter….
I shudder to think what it was made from.
Oh I miss the spirits of any holiday! Luckily there are the memories. Not to mention the joy in waking up Christmas morning without a champagne hangover. There’s nothing amusing about chopping onions, clattering about with pans and preparing raw turkey to get those juices flowing. And by juices I mean bile.
May you have a fabulous holiday Bearman! Your strip has brought many smiles and food for thought throughout the year.
Thanks Rach. You had me until BILE!!! haha
Health and happiness to you and yours, Bearman
Same to you Dunc
Xmas past becomes xmas pissed
Which has different meanings in different parts of the world haha
If it would had been alcohol I wouldn’t have needed to watch it because that would be more like a reality tv series of my life growing up 😉
It’s gotten better and not just because I live 5000 miles away now 🙂
I think old Scrooge was full of sprints when he felt visited , LOL! The past would be the most sad, just empty.
Fun ‘toon, Bearman!
Those Spirits. Ain’t Christmas without ’em.
They should visit yearly
Certainly would put a nice modern twist on the Charles Dicken’s classic. 😀
Probably more attune to the times
I’m sure there are a LOT of Ebeneezer’s who are visited by those kind of spirits every year! Maybe even everday!
Some aren’t so scroogy with their liquor
Ha! I think it makes a lot more sense now. Maybe a remake would show a stash of bottles in his flat.
Why do you think he only lived in one room of that massive house.
Spirits are great anytime of the year! Merry Christmas, Mr. Bearman! :O)
Thanks Joseph…you too
That’s funny, Bearman
Maybe Jack Sparrow is a spirit of Christmas past. “Why is the rum always gone”
He would be a likely suspect.
Probably makes for a more interesting story.
albeit much shorter
I know some Scrooge’s and you just gave me a great idea. Gonna buy them all a bottle! Thanks Bearman! 😀
That’s what I am here for. Thanks for stopping by Marcia
Looks like Christmas Future involves puking all morning December 26th!
Just like growing up.
Hey, all I want are Spirits and Christmas Presents. 😀
Then you are good to go
