Happy New Year 2015 – Chap. 5, Act 4, Strip 55

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!

Update’s a day early, this week because for obvious and less obvious reasons it had to be posted before midnight on the 31st.

The ovious reason being that it’s a New Year’s special.

The less obvious reason? Well, you see…New Year’s is the time to make resolutions concerning ways to improve. And I’m making a New Year’s resolution, too – I resolve to improve the B-movie Comic by…
…no longer letting Snuka recite horrible poetry in 2015. XD

It’s the least I can do. I’m also aiming for some other improvements, but this one’s pretty much the only one I can be reasonably sure about being able to keep.

So, for the very last time, enjoy (or deal with) the poetic genius of Sir William Topaz McGonagall, Knight of the White Elephant, Burmah. The poem falls a bit short of having the making of a New Year’s classic, because it seems that Sir William was in something of a somber mood when he wrote it – but Lee Douglas certainly felt that the poem spoke to him (or for him) in some way, so he put some extra effort in today.

(By the way, McGonagall did actually move away from Dundee, but not until 1894 – so, technically, he didn’t keep his resolution. Even the immortals fail some time!)

More next year – on Monday, specifically.
