Where did Art get hold of a copy of DeeVeeDee on DVD? Does it come on BluRay?

I didn't "get" that joke at first. Was the joke that his wrapping skills made it look irregularly shaped? Was the irregular shape supposed to look like a creature with the bow for hair and the Christmas trees on the wrapper as eyes? On about the fourth take I finally noticed that the DVD was on the table among the other items. Ah, OK. The DVD fell out of the bottom of the wrapping. It's not a big deal or anything -- not every joke is going to work for everyone. I'm curious, however, to know if I'm the only one who had trouble figuring out the punchline. Was it just me?

Well it took a second look, but it was worth it for me.
I think he was using scraps. Noob move.
Try again with a nice new big sheet of wrapping paper.

Buy a decorated christmas paper bag with handles, I do that all the time. Plus, they're re-usable by those who recieve the gift, if he's a cheap baestard. Very Happy

You know, I feel for Art here. The DVD case is a flat-ish cuboid. A completely geometrically regular object with right angles on all corners. It ought to practically wrap itself. There is nothing that should make this a difficult thing to do, nothing!

So... why does it never seem to be that simple in practice?

@ Retsof,

Scarlet + minigun = nightmare scenario for anything and everything within the flat trajectory range of 30-calibre ammo.

Am a massive Heavy fan and I am compelled to say "WE MUST PUSH LITTLE KAT!"

Anyway, I tried wrapping some presents today and it wasn't easy.

Really? I thought it was .50, bullets are freaking big enough.

Either way, ducking encouraged.

What's more dangerous than a squirrel with a machine gun?
2 squirrels with machine guns, standing back to back.

Dramatic Scarlet made me think of her doing a shakespear role...
"Out out darn spot!"

Wrapping paper. Place the box on the paper with the corners of the box at the midpoints of the sides of the paper. Fold the corners inward, 2 sides at a time, taping them to each other. Turn over and affix tag and possibly bow.

Nope, you weren't the only one... Actually I thought it was just the way it looked after it was wrapped and then the last pic was him just starring at it in disbelief. I think the last panel could have used *plop* in it for us slower ones. scratch
