christmas 1920: 'tis the season for rube goldberg

 Buffalo Express, December 24, 1920. 

While you may have to replace the family gathered inside this home with a mass Zoom call this year, the sentiment about discord is very relevant when it comes to 2020. 

In the right-hand panel, the dude Santa is talking to appears to be wearing one of cartoonist Rube Goldberg's less successful inventions. Kids, don't don live candles as part of your gay apparel, no matter how cool it might seem for an Instagram post or TikTok video. 

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, December 24, 1920.

Another Goldberg cartoon found in papers that Christmas Eve listed off things kids didn't want or want to do for Christmas. Please don't force your kids to recite in video calls, unless they really, really want to.
