Grand Avenue: Technology has improved a great many things. Christmas cards aren't one of them.

Indeed, I hate the way technology has forced my friends and relatives to mail me nothing more than white pieces of paper with the word "E-MAIL" typed on them. And this in place of lovingly signed, mass produced cards that come in boxes of fifty and sell for $3.99 at the drug store. Truly, the true meaning of Christmas has been lost to time and civilization's terrible decay.

  1. You know what the meaning of has been lost? "Technology". To many people it means "stuff that was invented and/or popularized after I became an adult." In that this comic is all too accurate.

    As for the papers, maybe someone told her "oh, just print out your email and it's like having a real card" and she is too literal.
