I love xkcd, a cartoon about life, tech, love, science and other abstract concepts. I’ve referenced a few xkcd cartoons before, looking now I see I haven’t even mentioned a few of my favorites. I’ll have to remedy that…xkcd-659.png

You’ll have to click to see the other four frames of the cartoon.

FYI, hovering your mouse over the actual cartoon usually adds a little more to the cartoon’s story (or explains some of the geeky concepts concepts).

So this isn’t exactly a very Christmas-ish tale, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t entertaining hysterical. Dave at Blogography has a Lego Advent Calendar which means a new little lego toy for each day of the month of December.

Be sure to start at the beginning of the story on December 1, the “Lego chapters” have their own special sections but they are mixed in with regular posts. I’m thinking there will be a Santa, reindeer and a few other holiday items before the end of this but I’m not sure it’ll end happily ever after

He started with the fireman toy and wrote a little story and decided to add a chapter each day, each chapter has the new Lego toys posed, some graphics added to enhance the imagery and descriptive text with dialog. Since the beginning of the story we’ve had an explosion, a psycho killer with a rotary buzz saw, some maimed characters, a bit of blood (I didn’t know that plastic could bleed so much) and more than you can imagine can occur in just a dozen frames of story. Actually, it’s possible Dave’s finally gone over the edge (but in a good way) although he expresses some concern about this too (but not until the 6th).
