Title: 'snow joke - part 2
Date: December 15, 2006
Summary: It's Christmas, and Beaver's snowman is alive! But something is suspect...
Number of panels: 9
It's the next morning and Steve is brimming with CHRISTMAS CHEER!
Steve: "Yay! It's Christmas!"
Beaver: (from outside) "Steve!"
Beaver: "Quick! Come out here - you have to see this!"
Beaver shows off his snowman, who is most definitely ALIVE!
Beaver: "Look! My snowman came to life!"
Beaver: "It's the magic of Christmas!"
Steve looks at the smiling snowman.
Steve: (suspiciously) "You got fat."
Beaver: "Honestly Steve! That's not very nice!"
Snowman: "Can I help it if I retain a lot of water?"
Steve: "And where's my snowman?"
Snowman: "Oh, he, uh, came alive too, but he had to go away to, er... the north pole. Yeah."
Snowman: "For, you know, magical adventures and stuff."
Beaver: "Oh! Isn't that wonderful!"
The Snowman looks shifty indeed.
Suddenly the Snowman BURRPP!s up a carrot
Snowman: "Pardon me!"
Beaver: "Come on Steve, let's go in and have our breakfast"
Beaver: "We can come back out and play with our magical friend later"
Steve HMMMs at the carrot.
Snowman: "Oh yes! Hurry back!.."
The snowman looks quite evil.
Snowman: "...I'll be waaaaaiiting... He he he he..."
The snowman is alone in the garden
Snowman: "... Though since I don't have any legs I don't really have much choice..."
[To be contd.]
- Despite Steve's Mutant Snowman looking twisted and evil, it is Beaver's conventional snowman that has come to life and apparently devoured Steve's Snowman.
- Steve's first speech bubble contains two Count Draculas posing as Santa, as he did in Comic 141.
- This whole storyline is a reference to The Snowman.
