How much myrrh can one man use?

(for Christmas Eve Eve)

Not to mention frankincense. The gold can at least be traded for useful supplies, but otherwise it’s bulky and heavy and of little utility to carpenters, shepherds, and fishermen, not to mention itinerant prophets.

All this by way of introduction to today’s Wayno/Piraro Bizarro, a Psychiatrist cartoon in which one such itinerant prophet, Jehoshua (known as Josh to his roadies), is unburdening himself to his therapist, unloading his disgruntlement at  being shortchanged in the birthday gift department because he was born on Christmas:

(#1) Yeshua, That’s My Baby (If you’re puzzled by the odd symbols in the cartoon — Dan Piraro says there are 8 in this strip — see this Page.)

And  by way of background, there’s the song. From Wikipedia:

(#2) Poster for the 1949 American Technicolor musical comedy film taking off from the song title

“Yes Sir, That’s My Baby” is a popular U.S. song from 1925. The music was written by Walter Donaldson and the lyrics by Gus Kahn.
