What’s need gotta do with it? It’s hard to live without the latest model, lest anyone think you’re a Luddite.
Hmm, that would explain all the people who purchased iphone 4S
Some people are slaves to change.
This is so true. Fraz wins this argument every time. New and Improved is tough to beat even if it is a really really minor change. People still gotta have it. (or wombats).
If you change it, I need it!!
Ow myy…Fraz, you are a genius!! new is better and better is new
I tell everyone all the time I’m a genius, but no one believes me!
Well, it happens everywhere Fraz!! the youngest is not as believable as the oldest
Yeah, we should form some sort of “Youngest Are Better!” group.
New is always better! Good thing I have elves to do my bidding.
I need to get me some elves! Are any of yours for sale?
Yes I could use a few of those sometimes Fraz 🙂 Shall we have a chocolate next I am getting a tad hungry and when I get hungry I could just eat something really nice 🙂
You can always have chocolate here!
That gives me an idea! Maybe we could set up some elf traps with chocolate as bait.
Elves are a minority group. I’m not sure it is politcally correct to talk about them like that. 😉
I’m using a live trap, so they shouldn’t complain. Besides, they’re getting free chocolate. What more could they want?
Oh, and BTW, Santa, did you get my list yet? I sent it to you early since there’s kinda a lot of stuff on it that I really really need.
I did receive it Fraz. I hope you can access Scholar Mel’s site soon so you can hop on my lap and ask a question.
PS: Your list indicated that you needed a ABM-3 Gazelle. I’m not sure my elves can make this one on such short notice but we will try our best!
I hope you can! There are some schoolyard bullies that need taking care of!
PS Don’t tell Chris!
PPS I still can’t get into your site! I hope I didn’t make your web technician elves mad at me!
Can you really get elf traps? Cool!!!!
Binky made the elf traps for me. He said they’ll work as long as there are elves around. I wish I could get into Santa’s workshop! Elf city!!
Yes and we could get some of those Chocolate Santa’s while we wait for the Elves, I really like your style Fraz 🙂
Chocolate Santas sound really good! Maybe even hot chocolate Santas, since it might be kinda cold waiting for those elf traps to spring.
Fraz you are so logical and always right too, I hope that Chris realises this? 🙂
Apparently he doesn’t! Maybe you could tell Chris how smart I am!
You are full of great ideas Fraz but do you think that Chris will listen? 🙂
I think he’ll listen to you because you’re bigger than he is!
I have to admit, my iPhone works better than the old vacuum tube-powered cell phone I had before!
Try to tell Chris that! He still has a wall phone with a cord on it!!
It probably does come with that ‘new thing’ smell…
And it’s all shiny and cool, too!
My mobile phone is 5 years old. I’m still not sure what a smart phone is.
I think a smart phone is something that makes you feel dumb because you don’t know how to use half the features.
At least he understands the boys in marketing. 🙂
I just know I want it! I mean I need it!
And it probably costs more too.
But it’s better, too, so it evens out.
New is always the better any way you put it.
I agree! Now if I just had the money to buy it!
New is great….. Sometimes it is also improved and can do things you don’t really need.
Most of these new things do so many things I don’t need, that I don’t need them!
Well that’a a selling point Jan 😉
Not to me!
New is always better than the last new thing.. ?
Yeah, because the last new thing isn’t new anymore when there’s something newer to replace it.
Not only is it new, it’s on sale! Double reason to buy!
Exactly! That’s why Chris should buy two, one for him and one for me!
Fraz, if we can get Chris into that way of thinking then we can have all the new stuff 🙂 Like I said before, you are so good with your ideas 🙂
Thanks! Some people wouldn’t agree with you, but I do!
Maybe I can get Chris to buy three, one for you, too!
Wow what a great idea Fraz 🙂
Once you tell Chris how great I am, he’ll buy three for sure!
New. Newer. Newest. It’s hard to keep up! I like this version of your strip anyway!
Newest is the only way to go! Otherwise you’d be old.
Yes, it IS sad when people won’t help themselves – Doug is out of options and may lose his benefits any time now, if he hasn’t already because he’s been keeping a low profile…
There’s only so much you can do to help someone.
Don’t worry Binky – I won’t eat them all at once!!! 🙂
That’s good. You’ve got to leave room for chocolate, after all.
New is always better for the improved or added features, but the parts are cheaper so you have to buy new again sooner.
A lot of things break so fast these days they don’t have a chance to get old. And then of course you have to buy the new version. It’s a conspiracy!
Excellent comic… very funny…. I love it!
Thanks, Drxtoon! Your Dr. X cartoon is quite original.
Just an observation, but your hair looks like chocolate.
Debbie would that be Hot Chocolate, or a different tune perhaps? 🙂
It better be a different tune before the Wombies get wind of it!
Nope, it’s chocolate alright.
Now the Wombies will be trying to eat my hair!
If only we could all upgrade when something new comes out.
Yeah, I wish I could upgrade Chris. He’s the oldest model I know!
So true, today all major products are based on “planned obsolence” to keep us buying!
That’s for sure. Things are out of date before you even get it home. They want to keep us in a constant state of need.
I’m that way with technology. My 6 month old Android phone just got an update from Froyo to Gingerbread so it seems like it is new. That’s nice since I can’t get one that is really new for another year or so.
Froyo to Gingerbread? I don’t know what that means, but if they update to Chocolate Chip Cookies, I’d buy one!
Hm, I’m not big admirer of new things. Mostly I’m using them as long as they are working well. So sorry Fraz, but I understand Chris.
Yeah, I like to keep using things until they stop working, too. So I guess I’m not the most up-to-date guy.
Even if it’s not better you still have to have the newest one. The creators are banking on it too. Literally.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
Yes, they most certainly are!
That’s what I say!
