The strip is making fun of the “’Twas the night before Christmas” poem where the protagonist is sleeping with his wife, but the protagonist still refers to her as “mamma” because she’s the mother of their children. My grandfather would call my grandmother “mother.” :)

Hmmm…. Lying Eyes sounds like a song, doesn’t it? :)
Wow! Early appearance of the Christmas cactus! :)
I would prefer Sophie as Ilsa — she seems the romantic type. Not Goldie or Tabitha — they’re too realistic.
