For those of you who get the strip in the newspaper, your newspaper may or may not carry the title panel to our Sunday strips. In recent years, the Sunday comics have been reduced in size so much, to save paper, that most have eliminated the title panel. If you only view the strip online, chances are you never see the title panel.
It’s a panel on the left, usually with our logo and a drawing. The drawing will relate to something in the main part of the strip gag. The title panel may relate to the main gag directly or indirectly—or in this case, the relationship may be obscure. A cartoonist friend of mine once said he really liked trying to figure out the obscure ones. He’ll have his work cut out for him this time.
Since not everyone gets to see the title panel, I’m posting it here for all to see at once.
Be the first one to post the correct interpretation of the thought balloon from today’s title panel (December 23, 2012) in the Comments section below, and you’ll win one of my stash of slightly damaged BBXX books with a drawing inside, signed to you (or to someone else you want to give it to). As always, we are the sole judges, and our decision is final.

PLEASE…DO NOT POST YOUR GUESS ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE. IT WON’T COUNT. ONLY GUESSES ENTERED ON THIS BLOG POST’S COMMENTS SECTION BELOW WILL BE CONSIDERED.
I’ve already mentioned on our Facebook page—and I’ll repeat it here: We can only ship within the U.S.A. due to the high cost of shipping overseas (or even Canada). Of course, if you have a friend in the US you trust to reship it to you out of the country, go right ahead. Make sure you use a valid email address when registering your comment, otherwise we won’t be able to contact you to get shipping details.
FYI, when I sent it to Jerry, he didn’t get it. Maybe he hadn’t had his coffee yet.
Or his nap.
Anyway, here’s a chance to show off your title panel solving skills.
