And OK. I know that the octopus one isn't festive, but it made me chuckle, and I drew it! I think I may have got the idea from the American Disabled cartoonist Callahan who drew a cartoon of an alien with one of it's three legs missing, begging in a wheelchair as other three legged aliens walked by. Still, I'm sure that he's got some ideas from me!
