Heathcliff's Owner Woman has cut off Heathcliff's tail and has used the black fur to create a joystick shaped hat. Heathcliff is also nervous about some meeting with Santa...turns out that Jolly Old St. Nick is really a criminal who has been assigned to rehab.
"MERRY X-MAS" he said, with a machine gun in his mittened hands.
"Have fun in N.A." said the cop.

Man, Heathcliff has been on a shocking run of strips that aren't quite abysmal. Is Peter off the sauce?
