This is another favorite strip of mine. I wonder if people would either try harder to stick to their New Year's resolutions, or just make less of them, if they could flash forward to the end of the year to see if they were kept.
TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - (MG) "Might as well plan my New Year's resolutions. Let's see... I resolve to lose some weight..."(CW) "Ain't gonna happen." (MG) "Huh? And what makes you think that?" (CW) "I figured you might do something like this, so I went ahead to a year from now to check on you... and you're about the same size you are now." (MG) "Oh yeah? Well... I also resolve to get all my credit card bills paid!!!" (CW gets up and walks off, to a confused MG, then) "Nope! That won't happen, either." (MG) "NOW CUT THAT OUT!"
