Boise Ed sends in this one, which was decades in the making.
Thanks to Andréa for this OY, which she notes depends on our conventional pronunciation that however does not match how it is said in Dutch. Here is a video she references as a guide:
Here’s an Eww-OY for ya!
Is it too soon or too late for one more Santa LOL?
Bllss (and Martin) on their own and on GoComics

We *did* crack a smile, even if not literally LOL. But no doubt this must be “a LOL comic” by virtue of subject matter!
Even putting aside the fact that “They never should have broken up Ma Bell” is a Geezer reference the character is way too young to be using (as pointed out by Andréa), what does he even mean? That if Bell Telephone hadn’t been broken up there wouldn’t be any any cell phones or computers today?
The first three were submitted by Andréa:
Would anybody go to the mall on December 26 and wait in line for an hour to return a pair of mittens?
Wouldn’t the same gag have worked better with something of more substance, like a sweater?
