    This is too funny.

  4. Daniel says:

    This exact cartoon was in The New Yorker two weeks ago. Page 75, in the Joyce Carol Oates story.

    Not an accusation or anything, just a heads up.

  5. Claire says:

    I hope this is available as a Christmas card…

    OCD = Old Clause Disorder?

  8. Doug says:

    Thank you Doug. I can start my day now that I’ve had a good laugh. 😀

    He’d better make sure he checks it an odd number of times. If you check it an even number of times that means you’ve cancelled out all of your checking.

  12. Matt says:

    he is thoroughly surprised at who’s on the list 😛

  13. Dave says:

    Don’t feel bad – nobody really reads the New Yorker. Their only good humorist is Andy Borowitz.

  18. Kelli Arrowsmith says:

    Now I know why it takes Santa all year to get his Christmas shopping done! Please Doug I want to win your book! PICK ME PICK ME!

  19. Lindsey says:

    This reminds me of a strange twist of a holiday song…

  20. ke1234 says:

    If the Santa was really OCD he would call it CDO because it is in alphabetical order

  21. Helen says:

    please do Homeland Security-Statue of Liberty

  22. As someone with OCD, I thought this funny. OCD is horrible, but your cartoon is funny.

    Now you know how Santa can spend the vast majority of the year in his workshop, making the same toys over and over and over and over and…

    The tag “Lists” is missing.

    I for instance really ought to make a list where I put the lists where I’ve listed where I’ve put my lists.

    (Btw, when I was a child, I had an urge to turn the same number of times back left when I turned right and vice versa, and an urge to make round-trips on topologically contractible ways (as I learned they were named afterwards, it means essentially, if you go through a hole, like under a ladder, or through a door, you go the same way back). I thought they were utterly irrational, so it was quite a strange feeling when I learned that in quantum physics, those two things actually do matter.)
