Zippy Christmas

Not much language in this Christmas Eve Zippy, though there are allusions to various bits of formulaic language (and, of course, popular culture):

The last panel echoes “If you can’t say anything nice, (then) don’t say anything at all”  (with other variants of the consequent clause: “run for President”, “say it in Yiddish”, and so on) — a saying I know nothing about the history of.
