This is the original version of today's Sunday strip. It ran in the Post Magazine two years ago. What I like is the tree vender, who's pretty much a funeral director, if not an outright mortician. Weirdly enough, yesterday's Lio plays around with a Frankenstein tree too, only differently http://www.gocomics.com/lio/2008/12/20/. I'd sure like to arrange a playdate with Mark Tatulli's kids.
