Day By Day


  • Henry

    Pin-ups live!

    • Unca Walt

      Great art, clever words.

      • MasterDiver

        I can hear Eartha Kitt purring and slinking her way through this…WOW!!!

        Zar Belk!

        and MERRY CHRISTMAS to all DbD’ers!

        • John D.Egbert

          And to think she was 16 when she recorded it . . .

          Merry Christmas to one and all.

          • JTC

            She was? Born in ‘27 like my Daddy and Santa Baby was released in ‘53 (hence her request to Santa for. ‘54 convertible like me! Or did she write it years earlier and put it aside?

            Didn’t know the lady died on Christmas Day…makes it all even more apropos (she was big on French too).

          • Heltau

            I do not believe that Eartha Kitt was ever 16. She was born a full fledged adult.

  • JTC

    Told ya!

    No unwrapping necessary!

    Thanks again CM. And to you and everyone here, Merry Christmas to all!

    Chris, good time for all your crap to happen and be out of the way…taking this last week of ‘20 off to get recharged and reset for ‘21 sounds like a plan…see you next year!

    • WayneM

      Merry Christmas everyone… and thanks for the beautiful pinups, Chris! Your artistry is remarkable!!

      2020 could be an interesting year to look back on in hindsight (pun intended) as it wasn’t all bad but damn… it seems like so much of what used to pass for normal got taken out behind the woodshed.

  • John M.

    THE lyrics don’t really fit the song as written, but who’s really reading them anyway?

    • interventor

      There were lyrics?

      • John M.

        …and snowflakes and musical notes…

  • Pamela

    Santa Baby, please come through tonight.
    Don’t forget the lumps of coal for the naughty boys and girls tonight.
    Might need a few tons.

  • Kafiroon

    Y’all, Merry Christmas and prayers for good will toward men.

    Even if half the country has No good will.

  • Too Tall

    The best version of one of my favorite Christmas songs!

  • John M.

    Merry Christmas to Chris, and I hope he gets his electronics woes sorted out ASAP.

    …and MERRY CHRISTMAS, a Good YULE, Happy Hanukah, Happy Kwanzaa, and for those of you I haven’t otherwise covered, May you have a Joyous Festivus!

    • GWB

      Isn’t “joyous Festivus” sort of an oxymoron? Just saying.

      • John D.Egbert

        No, it,s a redundancy . . .

  • Punta Gorda

    Vargas would be proud!

  • President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

    “Santa Baby”, one of my fave Christmas songs as sung by Eartha Kitt, the one, the only, the original, often imitated, never duplicated. Sultry voice, silk and gravel, make a boy into a man just walking through the room and saying, “hello”.

    CM, another one knocked out of the park. Artwork, pinups galore, new lyrics to a Christmas classic. What’s not to love!? WOOF!

  • Punta Gorda

    But not a memorable Cat Woman.

    • GWB

      I disagree. Very memorable.

    • interventor

      Her purr, was perrfect.

  • steveb919

    Wish I had a live one of her under my tree. (probably have a heart attack) But what a way to go.

    • GWB

      Me too.

  • Pete231

    Holly Cole’s version is pretty good, also. Season’s Greetings !

  • Halley

    Marry Chris, Miss!

    Like Sam, every remaining sane soul under The Star is aching for deliverance from Anus(sp?) Horribilis, heart-attack yearning for a sign of a certain boat across the Delaware… Let It Be, tonight.

    • Wood

      If you mean a horrible year, there are two “Ns”. What you typed sounds horrible indeed

  • Pete231

    And, Julie Newmar IS proof that God is a Man. The original and still the best “Cat”…!

  • Lucius Severus Pertinax

    Wow!! just… Wow!!

  • Steve Peterson

    Merry Christmas to all!!!!!!!!!


    Merry Christmas to All DbD followers and especially to the Artist!

  • Badger

    Merry Christmas, Chris. Primo work and you’re as timely as ever.

  • shooter 2.5

    Chris and to all the others, Merry Christmas and thank you for making this a tolerable year.

  • My Way or -->

    Merry Christmas to all and to all a good new year.

    My Christmas wish is that the dumbocarps will make such fools of themselves, they will take them 2 centuries to recover from it.

    It is a dream I have.

  • PaulS

    Merry Christmas to all!
    Orange man is the new badass! 😉

  • Contrarian View

    Merry Christmas to you, Chris, and to all of the DBD family. I sure hope the girls’ wishes come true, and the sooner the better.

  • Jim Smith

    You’re good, Chris. Merry Christmas to you and to all the good people who read DBD…as well as to our leaders and compatriots in the Fight who will help lead us to victory.

  • JTC

    Dang, Red didn’t ask for a ‘54 convertible like Eartha did…being a ‘54 model myself and absolutely a drop-top, I woulda volunteerEd to roll up under her tree!

    But it seems like instead she’s hoping for a Rubicon, but not the Jeep convertible of the same name, she wants DJT and Deplorables to roll across the real thing…and I’m with her (I wish!).

  • nonncom

    You are truly an artist, Chris….thanks and Merry Christmas….

  • GWB

    Thank you for the Christmas gift, Chris!

    Merry Christmas to all!

  • Kip Allen

    Let’s hear it for Jim Host and the Gateway Pundit!

  • Julian

    bravissimo!!!!!!!!! Well done, thank you, and Merry Christmas…. and FOUR MORE YEARS!!!

  • Roland Deshain

    Fantastic art work! Merry Christmas everybody and here’s to four more years!

  • MAJ Arkay

    Merry Christmas to one and all. May you celebrate this glorious day safe and away from those who wish you ill.

    Thank you, Chris, for your artwork, humor, and perspicacity. Look forward to continued goosebumps when I read Day By Day.

  • Pamela

    Well you can tell Sam is not doing conceal carry…

    • JTC

      Maybe. Couple or three pretty good natural holsters there though…

  • Felise Navidad, to you and yours, Chris, and all my fellow Day by Dayers… He is Born!

  • NotYetInACamp

    Merry Chriystmas to all.
    I love that song. May it presage a wonderful coming New Year.

  • John M.

    Chris said his computer let out it’s magic smoke the other night and this would be his last strip for a while… what a place to break down.

    While I hope he gets back up and running soon, I sure can’t complain about the “Eye-candy” we’re stuck with!

    • PaulS

      Well, the DBD gals are Smoke’n!

  • WalkingHorse

    Hot Crossed-Rubicon Buns.

  • Mike-SMO

    Merry Christmas all.

    Still got my bright red stocking out.

  • Fox2!

    Merry Christmas to all!

    Chris, thanks for all the work you do every day!

  • max wyeth

    Merry CHRIStmas ! Thanks for another fantastic year of seminude punditry.
    Here’s hoping for the second term.

  • Grunt GI

    A belated Merry Christmas to everyone!

    Holy smoking computer Batman!

    I hope Chris has a good backup system…wouldn’t want to lose any glorious artwork!

    Looking forward to the new toon once the IT gods are pacified.

    • Grunt GI

      Can you resend? I couldn’t get this to load.

  • CDR 215

    Chris, have you ever considered doing posters of some of your artwork? I’m thinking that some of us would love to have today’s strip (no pun intended )as a poster we could haul out as part of our Christmas decorations. And I’m pretty sure some of the water hole pictures would be welcomed as well, just a thought…
    Oh and best of luck with recovering your files from the smoked computer

    • JTC

      Man has said as a Christmas present to you, go ahead and take any drawing to make posters, shirts, etc. with Cafe Press etc…I think he wants his intellectual property to be spread far and wide and that can only be good for our country and our psyches.

      • Only for the individual Dbd reader, no selling of DBD property or distribution thanks

        • JTC

          My mistake, I misunderstood your prior “release” completely.

          • JTC

            “The image is free, drag it off onto your desktop, print it up. I don’t care. :)”

            I should have realized but did not, that release was specific only to your CRA States flag design.

        • Punta Gorda

          I.e. ” personal, non-commercial use only”

          • JTC

            Where is that disclaimer PG?

  • Roland Deshain

    Chris: Two days with no toon? Should I be worried or did I miss an internal memo?

  • Brian Kuhn

    Hmmmm. Hope everything is ok, Chris.

    • JTC

      Per a heads-up on 12/24 CM’s after heater died (whatever that is), he totaled his car, and cooked his ‘puter all within a few days, so he’s taking a few days to get recombobulated.

      • Pamela

        Ah Crap.

      • WayneM

        Let’s hope everything is sorted sooner than later.
