Well Hung: Suicide and the Holidays

A common misconception, or to use its more common name – mainstream news, is that the suicide rate increases during the December holiday month. In fact, studies show that the suicide rate is depressed (no pun intended) during December. The most popular time for people to bring themselves closer to their God, is Spring and Summer.

In the United States, suicides outnumber homicides by approximately a 5-3 ratio, supporting the notion that internalizing ones anger may be harmful to health.

Happy holidays, everyone!

  1. Where have you gone, Don Wilson?

    Both cartoons made me laugh, but I can’t even type straight because of that fish jank.

  2. Heh, suicide can be funny. I also saw a comic of a snowman killing himself with a hair dryer. I can see how he would want to end it all, but not how he powered the blow dryer. What is needed, a 200 yard power cord? Battery powered hair dryer? I want accuracy in my ‘snowman comes to life then dies’ comics.
    I like the Don Wilson reference. I remember how I used to look at his baseball cards to see if something in his eyes gave away his pain, but he looked rather happy. Tomorrow is the 33rd anniversary of his death.
